Another 5 innings and 6 runs sluggish ‘Geumgang Beolgoe’… A time that even Cy Young & MVP can’t go against
New York Mets veteran pitcher Justin Verlander (40) collapsed again.
Verlander started on the 28th (hereinafter Korean time) in an away game against the Colorado Rockies in the 2023 major league held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA, and was sluggish with 9 hits, 2 strikeouts and 1 walk and 6 runs in 5 innings.메이저사이트
It was a day to be content with avoiding defeat. Verlander, who suffered a loss with 6 runs in 5 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on the 17th, became a winning pitcher with 8 innings and 1 run in a good pitch against the Cleveland Guardians on the 22nd, the previous appearance.
He seemed to be getting back to his pitching pace. However, it collapsed again in the Coors Field expedition that day. He, a 9-time American League All-Star, 3-time Cy Women Award, and 1-time MVP, has had his ups and downs this year.
Last year, despite his age, he played an ‘ace’ performance with 18 wins and 4 losses and an average ERA of 1.75 in 28 games. He once showed that the ‘Geumgang Beolgot’, which he took responsibility for 200 innings (the highest 251 innings in Detroit in 2011), is alive and well.
However, against Colorado on this day, his sluggishness was not avoided. He was hit hard in the second inning. After one out, he allowed 4 hits in a row, giving up 2 runs, giving up a walk and again giving up 2 RBIs and a timely double, giving up 4 runs in no time. He even gave up a sacrifice fly and he only gave up 5 runs in the second inning. It was the second episode that was not like Verlander.
Verlander gave up another run in the bottom of the 3rd inning with 1 out and 1 base again. The 4th and 5th innings were blocked without a run, but his pitching was up to that point.
In the top of the 6th inning when the other line was trailing 1-6, he scored 5 points to tie the game and Verlander avoided defeat.
