He was also hit by the No. 1 team in the AL with two home runs and 115 billion ace ERA 2.25 4.76
Justin Verlander (40, New York Mets), the “major league salary king,” was hit hard by the Tampa Bay lineup, which is making a splash.
Verlander started the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Flushing City Field in New York on the 17th (Korea Standard Time) and suffered his second loss (1 win) of the season due to eight hits (two home runs), two walks, three strikeouts, and six runs in five innings.
I struggled from the first inning. He caught two outs well, hit Brandon Lowe, walked Randy Arozarena, and was in danger of first and second base. He subsequently handled Isaac Farredis with an infield grounder, but the number of pitches in the first inning was somewhat higher, with 17.
In the second inning, Manuel Margot hit a left-handed hit after one out. Afterwards, he overcame the crisis by striking out Jose Siri with two outs and second base, which was faced with Christian Betancourt’s fielder choice and wild pitch.
The nightmare in the third inning, still 0-0, came. Leading Harold Ramirez had an infield hit and Wanderer Franco walked. Since then, he has struck out Lowe with a foul tip and handled Arozarena with a catcher foul fly, increasing two out counts in an instant, but met Farredis and dedicated a painful left-wall three-run shot. The sixth curve thrown at the end of the full count was formed high in the middle, marking the third home run of the season.
In the fourth inning, trailing 0-3, Betancourt allowed a double after one out. He then hit a timely RBI to the right by Ramirez in the third base with two outs that led to Siri’s hit.
Verlander was hardly able to settle down. In the fifth inning, when he was being dragged 0-4, he was hit by a double again by the leader Lowe, and when Arozarena was selected as a fielder, the leading runner was out at third base, making him comfortable with one out and first base, but he dedicated another two-run home run against Farredis. The 3rd ball thrown from the 1B-1S, 93.7 miles (150km), four-seam fastball, rushed over the left fence. It was the second two-homer game of the season.
Verlander finished unfortunately in the sixth inning when he was replaced by Dominic Leone, trailing 1-6. He has 96 pitches. His ERA soared from 2.25 to 4.76 as he met the Tampa Bay batters, the No. 1 player in the American League East. The Mets, whose trusted ace collapsed, also fell to Tampa Bay 5-8 and lost two consecutive games. 20 wins and 23 losses this season 사설토토
Verlander signed a two-year, $86 million (about 115 billion won) large contract with the Mets before the 2023 season. He devoted himself to rehabilitation for a month after the opening due to injury, and lost two home runs and two runs in five innings against Detroit on the 5th, his Mets debut. Verlander met Cincinnati on the 11th and won one run in seven innings, but suffered a slump again in his third appearance, adding to the Mets’ worries.
Verlander, who earns $43.33 million (about 58 billion won) a year, is in the Major League Baseball’s annual salary king position for the 2023 season with teammate Max Scherzer
