After 15 games, a quality start (less than 3 earned runs in 6 starting innings) came out, but I couldn’t laugh. This is the story of Jack Greinke (40, Kansas City Royals), a veteran pitcher who won 224 victories in his career.
Greinke started on the 30th (Korean time) in the Cleveland Guardians match of the ‘2023 Major League Baseball’ held at Coffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
Greinke: Steven Kwan (left fielder), Ahmed Rosario (shortstop), Jose Ramirez (third baseman), Josh Naylor (first baseman), Josh Bell (designated hitter), Andres Jimenez (second baseman), Will Brennan (right fielder) – Miles Straw (center fielder) – Cam Gallagher (catcher)’s Cleveland batting line was against.
From the beginning of the game, Greinke faced a crisis. In the top of the first inning he made a good catch with two out counts, then he shook sharply. He gave up two walks and a hit, so he got two out and bases loaded, but Jimenez was grounded to second base to end the inning.
After that, he continued to concede, but it was far from a clean pitch. He got a hit every inning, putting runners on base.
The first run was in the top of the 5th inning. Ramirez hit a sacrifice fly from 1st out and 3rd base, giving the first run to 0-1. Afterwards, in the 2nd and 2nd base, Bell allowed 1 RBI, making it 0-2. Even at the beginning of the 6th inning, the last inning, he could not lead a tripartite offense. He gave up two hits, but held off subsequent batters well to prevent extra runs.먹튀검증
Greinke was replaced with relief pitcher Carlos Hernandez before the top of the seventh inning to finish the game. The final score is 6 innings, 11 hits, 2 walks and 2 runs. It was the first quality start in 15 games since the match against the Toronto Blue Jays on April 6, but it is a record that cannot be laughed at. He gave up a lot of hits, and he didn’t even strike out the opponent’s batting line with his overwhelming pitch. Apart from his record, it is hard to see him as Hotu coolly.
As the old saying goes, the legendary pitcher who led an era has been gradually losing his skills over the past few years. Had he been Greinke in his prime, he’s a sluggish pitcher you wouldn’t have imagined. It was the first time Greinke had given up double-digit hits without striking out a single in 531 starts in his major league debut. It is also a sign that the pitch has fallen.
Greinke recorded a quality start in 15 games. Should I laugh or should I cry? Aside from the results, he seems to have no choice but to smile bitterly at his unusual performance.
