‘Please be fouled’ Ace, who was desperate enough to lie on his face and blow his mouth, what to do with a sluggish ERA of 6.36

Toronto Blue Jays Alec Manoa (25) played desperately, but again he pitched sluggishly. 

On the 6th (Korean time), Manoa started in the game against the Houston Astros held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and recorded a loss with 7 hits (1 home run) and 1 walk and 6 runs in ⅓ innings. 먹튀검증

Manoa, who was hit by leadoff hitter Mauricio Dubon, met Jeremy Pena at first base. With the first strike, Manoa threw a slider at 79.6 miles per hour (128.1 km) on the second pitch, and Pena attempted a surprise bunt. Pena’s bunt batted ball exquisitely rolled down the third base foul line and did not deviate from the line. Desperate, Manoa tried to blow the ball out with his mouth, but the ball eventually stopped in the fair area and Pena scored a bunt hit. 

MLB.com, the official major league media, said, “The ball that was rolling toward the foul line changed direction to the fair area. At that time, Manoah decided to encourage Gong. As third baseman Matt Chapman waited for the ball on the other side, Manoa lowered himself almost to the floor and tried to blow the ball away. But it was harder than it looked and Manoa had no luck changing the ball’s path,” he said, introducing Manoa’s happening. 

Manoa, who grew up as a key Toronto starting pitcher with great success in 2021 and 2022, fell into a long slump this season. In 13 games (58 innings), he recorded 1 win, 7 losses and an average ERA of 6.36. Manoa, who was seldom finding an opportunity to rebound, took the game desperately enough to blow the wind with his mouth on the ball, but in the end, he could not survive the first inning and was knocked out. 

Meanwhile, Manoa isn’t the first to attempt to blow the ball out of the foul line by blowing with his mouth. MLB.com said, “This play goes back to 1981. Seattle third baseman Lenny Randle famously blew away Amos Otis’ bunt foul ball. The bunt batted ball seemed likely to be a pair, but Randle was really committed to blowing the ball. He lay flat on the ground and crawled up on his hands and knees to send the ball to the end. Nevertheless, Otis was eventually judged to go to first base.” At the time, the referee initially judged Otis’ batted ball as a foul, but later discussed it and corrected it as a hit.
