No hits in 3 at-bats, double play, Yoshida’s batting average of 0.150 in the last 6 games, the WBC ‘RBI King’ that lost momentum in the early stages

Hitless in 3 at-bats and double stroke.

Boston Red Sox outfielder Masataka Yoshida (30) lost his early momentum. On the 12th (Korean time), he started as the 4th left fielder in an away game against the Tampa Bay Rays and ended up with no hits. He is 3-for-20 with a batting average of 1.5 in his last six games. 4 out of 6 games are hitless.

After going on base with a walk in the first at-bat in the first inning, all three subsequent at-bats were retired with a hit.

He came out as the leadoff batter in the fourth inning and was out on a pitcher’s grounder. It was blocked by Tampa Bay starting pitcher Shane McClarnahan’s 156km/h fastball.

It was a pity that one shot was in the scoring zone. He failed to take advantage of the chances of 1st and 3rd base safely in the 6th inning when he was trailing 0-5. Against Tampa Bay left-hander Garrett Clevinger, who was replaced, the ball hit in the ball count 1B-2S became a second base ground ball. It led to a 4-6-3 double play. In the 8th inning, with 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base, the shortstop withdrew with a floating ball. 메이저놀이터

Yoshida, who signed a contract with Boston last winter for 5 years and 90 million dollars, is the main player in Japan winning the World Baseball Classic (WBC). He posted ’13 RBI’, a new single tournament record for him. He gained recognition through the WBC before making his major league debut.

He was the first Japanese fielder to start as the fourth batter in the opener of his major league debut season. In the opening game against the Baltimore Orioles on the 31st of last month, he had an impressive performance, recording 2 hits and 2 RBIs.

On the 4th, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he hit his first home run in the major leagues, passing the Green Monster at Fanway Park in Boston.

8 hits in 37 at-bats in 10 games. His batting average for the season fell to .201.6. He has 1 home run, 6 RBIs and 7 walks for a 0.680 OPS.

A Tampa Bay gust hit Boston. They won 7-2 and won 11 consecutive victories from the opening game. ‘2 wins’ remain until the record for the most in the major leagues.
