My butt hurts…
Daein Dunning (29, Texas Rangers) politely declined to join the Korean WBC national team after meeting LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who was on a business trip to the United States as the WBC Technical Committee Chairman in the second half of last year. As a Korean-American, he deserves the Taegeuk mark at the WBC. However, Dunning suffered from a hip injury last year and underwent last-season surgery.
Dunning also had a dream of a Taegeuk mark, but he could not join the Korean national team because he was not confident about his physical condition. Dunning, who had been like that, is going to an exhibition match after rehabilitating. On the 3rd (hereinafter Korean time), the 2023 Major League Baseball exhibition game against the Milwaukee Brewers was held at American Family Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Dunning’s strikeout show unfolded.
He gave up 3 hits (1 home run), 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 3 innings. On the 26th of last month, against the Kansas City Royals, it was not good with 3 hits, 2 strikeouts, 2 walks and 5 runs in 1⅓ innings, but this day was different. He was hit by a solo shot, but in the situation where he was hit, he did not concede with a timely hit.
Shortly after the bottom of the first inning, Christian Yelich hit a left-handed solo shot. After two outs, he also got a heavy hit from William Contreras, but did not concede an extra run. Starting with Brian Anderson in the second inning, he struck out Yelich, who met again in the third inning. He finished the day with two outs and first baseman Loudy Telles striking out again.메이저사이트
Texas’ 7-4 win. Dunning became the winning pitcher. The average score of this demonstration match was 12.46 with an average ERA of 1 win and 1 loss in 2 games. Of course, the regular season is more important than the demonstration games. Dunning wasn’t that good last year with a 4-8 record and a 4.46 ERA in 29 games.
The Texas starting lineup this season has the strongest ace in the world, Jacob deGrom. In many ways, it’s not an easy environment for Dunning to survive. Dunning’s career record in the major leagues was 11-18 with a 4.43 ERA in 63 games. As such, the WBC is not important to Dunning.
