Japanese high school team gives up 66 runs in two innings (Kevin Jarvis came out of retirement?)

Apparently, if this article is serious, a Japanese school baseball team, Kawamoto Technical High School, gave up 66 runs in two innings then forefitted with a 9-0 loss. The starting pitcher gave up the 66 runs, 20 in the first and 42 in the second, threw 250 pitches, which is some record breaking, astonishing numbers.

From the article:

“The coach of Kawamoto technical high school threw in the towel to spare his pitcher’s arm with his team losing 66-0 with just one batter out in the bottom of the second.”

According to this ERA calculator and assuming that most Japanese baseball games are nine innings (in which they are), this poor Japanese high school pitcher’s ERA is 539.99 repeating, or an ERA of 540 in an astonishing 1.1 innings, assuming all of those runs were earned, in which they probably were not. What is really funny is the manager keeping the player in the game and then forefitting. I wonder where the relievers were in this case. And you think Dusty Baker wore out tired arms.

At least we know the whereabouts of Jose Lima now.
