Spencer Strider (25, Atlanta Braves), who finished second in the National League Rookie of the Year with an amazing strikeout show last year, seems to have no second-year jinx.
Atlanta had an away game against the San Diego Padres on the 19th (Korean time) at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA.
Strider, who started as Atlanta starting pitcher that day, threw 98 balls (63 strikes) in 6 innings, recording one hit and no run. 9 strikeouts. 카지노사이트
Atlanta’s line-up scored two runs while Strider was on the mound, and won 8-1 with three runs by Azi Albis and Matt Olsen in the 8th and 9th innings. 8-game winning streak.
With this, Strider won his second win of the season and lowered his ERA to 2.45. He also struck out nine in four straight games after opening.
With this victory, Atlanta maintained its overall lead in the National League with a 14-4 win rate of 0.778, running an 8-game winning streak. It is one game away from the Tampa Bay Rays, who lead the major leagues.
Strider is a right-handed pitcher who started off as a relief pitcher last year and then turned into a starting pitcher and displayed an amazing strikeout show. He struck out a whopping 202 in 131 2/3 innings.
A player whose main weapon is a slider and a four-seam fastball that reaches up to 100 mph. He throws a changeup with a third pitch, but very rarely.
In order for Strider to continue his current momentum and become a pitcher who will challenge the Cy Young Young, he will need to refine his changeup and increase the frequency.
On the other hand, Ha-sung Kim, who started as San Diego’s 7th and 2nd baseman, couldn’t handle the Strider’s pitch that day, and had no hits and 3 strikeouts in 3 at-bats.
