New York Mets Justin Verlander tasted the thrill of winning his first win in his second appearance on his return.
Verlander started in an away game against the Cincinnati Reds held at the Great American Ball Park on the 11th (Korean time) and gave up 2 hits and 2 walks in 7 innings, leading to a 2-1 victory.
Verlander, who received the third Cy Young of his career with the Houston Astros last year, came out on the free agent market and signed a two-year, $86.67 million contract and wore a Mets uniform. The Mets team showed great expectations by treating Verlander with the same average annual salary (AAV) of $43.33 million (approximately 57.1 billion won) as another ace, Max Scherzer.
However, he injured his shoulder muscle at the end of an exhibition game in March and spent the season on the injured list. After over a month of rehabilitation, Verlander returned on the 5th and made his Mets debut against the Detroit Tigers. He pitched well with 5 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 2 runs in 5 innings.
Then, after six days, the Mets showed off the ace’s dignity that they had been waiting for. The number of pitches was 104, and the speed of a four-seam fastball thrown 55 was a maximum of 96.9 miles and an average of 94.4 miles. He also had 30 sliders, 17 curveballs and 2 changeups.
Departure was uneasy. In the bottom of the first inning he gave up two hits and a walk, giving up one run. Verlander, who was hit by a left-handed hit by leadoff Jonathan India, tried to finish the inning with two batters, but allowed a double to the right to Jake Fraley and allowed a run. Then, after walking Tyler Stephenson, he caught it as a steal and managed to prevent an additional run.
However, from the second inning, he easily digested the innings. Verlander, who blocked the second inning with 16 balls in a tripartite, threw 12 balls in the third inning and took care of three batters. He passed the 4th inning with one walk and no run, and then blocked the 5th inning with a three-way retreat. In the 6th inning, after one death, he struck out TJ Friedle and Spencer Steer with consecutive misses.
In the 7th inning, he struck out the leader Fraley on a swing, Steffenson on a floating ball in center field, and struck out Nick Senzel with a swing and miss, completing the ‘Quality Start +’.
The Mets tied the game with a solo home run by Pete Alonso in the top of the second inning, trailing 0-1, and scored the winning run with Brandon Nemo’s right-handed hit in the fourth inning with two out on first and second base. Alonso rose to first place alone in both leagues in this category with his 13th gun of the season.온라인카지노
