Masataka Yoshida (Boston) shook the opponent’s battery with a persistent game.
On the 11th (Korean time), Yoshida started as the second left fielder in the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the New York Yankees held at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York, USA, and recorded no hits, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts in 3 at-bats.스포츠토토
Fans applauded his persistence at the plate, even though he didn’t hit.
He struck out in the first at-bat in the first inning and withdrew with a floating ball to center fielder in the second at-bat with one out in the third inning.
He walked on base with two outs in the top of the 5th inning when the team was trailing 0-1.
The highlight was the last at-bat. In the beginning of the 7th inning, where the team trailed 0-2, the pitcher Wandy Peralta, who changed from 2 out, played a match that went up to 14 pitches. Yoshida, who endured the sinker coming into the body with three consecutive pitches, watched the slider and changeup with two consecutive pitches. Full count like this. After that, I started cutting. He kicked off a changeup that came straight into the body, and then fouled the sinker that fell. He again kicked his changeup and sinker back to back, recording nine consecutive fouls. A 14-ball match. Perelta’s slider drifted outside, and Yoshida ended up walking on base. Peralta smiled wryly.
Yoshida wore a Boston Red Sox uniform for 5 years and 90 million dollars (approximately 119.6 billion won). He appeared in 57 games this season and has a batting average of 0.305, 7 homers, 33 RBIs and an on-base percentage of 0.381.
Yankees media Tokin Yankees, the opposing team, was also surprised at Yoshida’s 14-ball game. The media applauded, saying, “Yoshida’s at-bat was a master class.”
