I’m always grateful. Darvish, thank you for the defense
San Diego Padres starter Darvish Yu thanked the defense.
Darvish looked back on his appearance (6/3 innings, 6 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, and 5 runs) in an interview after losing 0-5 away game against the New York Mets at City Field in Flushing, New York, on the 11th (Korea Standard Time).
He allowed five runs on the day, but threw 104 balls until the seventh inning, showing that there was no problem with the build-up. The preparation process was not the same as usual due to the joining of the Japanese national team at the World Baseball Classic, so the appearance on this day was even more meaningful
“It’s a big deal for me to throw up to the seventh inning,” he said, adding, “I threw up to the first seven innings of this season. I told my body, “I have to hold out strongly throughout the season,” he said.
“I will see how my body reacts and feels tomorrow,” he said, adding, “I will check my physical condition and prepare for the next mound.”
Coach Bob Melvin also praised Darvish’s pitch, saying, “He has become much sharper than his last appearance.” “Breaking ball got better, and the fastball command seemed to go in as well as I wanted. “The result was better last time, but this time was much better,” he said, evaluating the pitching content.
The results in Darvish could have been better on this day. There was no luck in the seventh inning. Luis Kiyome’s bunt and Thomas Nido’s missed ball rolled along the inside of the third base foul line in a row, making it an infield hit. San Diego players, including third baseman Manny Machado, who wanted the ball to go off the line, had no choice but to watch it blankly.
Darvish said, “Maybe I’ll see a scene like that once a season. But I watched it twice in one inning today. “I don’t know if this is unfortunate or if I’m lucky to see such a scene,” he said, looking back on the seventh episode.
Coach Melvin recalled the situation at the time, saying, “I thought the first ball would be a foul, but the second ball would stay inside.” “I have to admit Mark Kanha, who came out as the leadoff hitter and hit a double,” he said, adding that it was an inning that started to get twisted when he allowed a double to the leadoff hitter.
“I was hit by a double by the first batter, but my pitch was good throughout the game. It’s a relief that he was able to digest up to 100 pitches and that he himself felt good. He added meaning to Darvish’s return to normalcy 메이저토토
There were scenes where I wasn’t lucky, but there was also a good defense. Shortstop Xander Bo made a groundout by diving Pete Alonso’s ball in the sixth inning, and Kim Ha-sung also threw himself on Jeff McNeill’s ball in the seventh inning to prevent further runs.
Darvish said, “I’m grateful to the defense behind me all season, not just for today’s game. I’m catching hard outs every day. I don’t know what else to ask. “I’m really grateful,” he said, expressing his gratitude to Kim Ha-sung and other defenders
