Major league experts often refer to baseball as a ‘crazy game’. So is golf. This is because too often results are far from expected.
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave 메이저사이트 Roberts, who is on a 10-game winning streak, gave starting catcher Will Smith a break in the last game of the series against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 18th (Korean time), and backup Austin Barnes formed a battery with starter Lance Lynn. However, right before the game, designated hitter JD Martinez replaced Smith as designated hitter due to groin pain.
The Dodgers finale, which took place on Korean Day, led to a tight pitcher’s battle. Lin, who has changed 180 degrees after transferring from the Chicago White Sox, faced off with Milwaukee ace Corbin Burns.
The matrix of 0 continued until the 7th episode. Both starters passed the mound to the bullpen with 7 scoreless innings side by side. The number of pitches was appropriate. Lin is 87 (strike 55), Burns is 98 (strike 60). Milwaukee coach Craig Council, trying to avoid a sweep by the Dodgers, set up Joel Payyamps in the 8th inning. As the setup man for closer Devin Williams, he has a 1.92 ERA.
After one shoot, bat catcher Austin Barnes (33) was at bat. The batting has been so poor this season that it is news just that it has not been released. He is originally a defensive catcher who focuses on defense rather than offense, but his batting average is only 0.136. With the ball count 0-1, Barnes pulled Fayamps’ body slider and hit a season-long home run that went over the fence slightly. Most of Barnes’ home runs are at this distance. As a contact hitter, he sprints like a hit even on a home run.
Milwaukee Battery’s mistake. What hitters with low batting averages have in common is that they cannot cope with the ball quickly. He did not win with a fast ball, but used two consecutive sliders and was hit with a home run that became the final score. Barnes’ home run is the first since September 21, 2022 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Dodgers won 1-0 on a home run by Barnes, snapping their 11th straight win of the season. Season 74 wins 46 losses. The difference between the second place SF Giants and the game was 10.5. During the 11th consecutive win, the Dodgers led by 1 point three times and pitched battles 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 three times.
Lynn, who recorded 6-9 with a 6.47 ERA for the White Sox, recorded an ERA of 1.44 with 3 wins in 4 starts for the Dodgers.
The Dodgers, which are popular, win in a pitcher’s battle if the batting match fails. That is the face of a strong team. During the 11 consecutive wins, the total score was 63 and the goal difference reached +41 with 22 conceded.
