40-year-old Scherzer was alive, tied for 11th with Maddox in ‘Tongsan 3317K’… and won 5 innings without losing 4K

Scherzer started at a home game against the Kansas City Royals at Globe Life Field on Monday (Korea time), and displayed his solid pitching by allowing only one hit during five innings and allowing no run. Texas won the game 4-0, thanks to Scherzer’s good pitching.

He pitched 57 pitches and made 39 strikes. His fastballs in 28 pitches reached a maximum of 94.3 miles and 92.9 miles on average. His average speed was 0.8 miles less than last year’s 93.7 miles. This means that he was near his normal condition. The aftermath of back surgery has also been wiped out.

Scherzer took the mound in Game 3 of the World Series last year and was substituted after three innings due to back pain. He underwent a disc surgery in mid-December and underwent rehabilitation. During his recent rehabilitation period, he suffered from nerve pain in his right thumb. However, he allowed 10 hits and three walks during a total of 11 innings in the Triple-A rehab session, struck out 17 and allowed six runs, marking an ERA of 4.91.

Scherzer added four strikeouts on the day to tie Greg Maddox for the 11th place in this category with a total of 3,371. Maddox is a legendary pitcher who has won four Cy Young Awards in his 23 years with the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Diego Padres. Called the “Magician of Control,” he retired in 2008 after recording 355 wins and 227 losses, 3371 strikeouts, and a 3.16 ERA, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014. 토토사이트 추천

Texas manager Bruce Bochy said before the game, “I don’t have high expectations for Scherzer. I think I rested for a long time. I told myself. I don’t want him to throw as well as a Cy Young Award pitcher. I just asked for a chance to win.”

However, Scherzer displayed robust pitching performance comparable to that of his heyday. As soon as the game started, Scherzer continued to hit 13 consecutive batters with one out from the first inning to the fifth inning. Scherzer easily passed the first inning with 10 pitches, and threw nine pitches in the second inning to catch Salvador Perez, MJ Melendes, and Hunter Renfroe, respectively, with fly ball to right field, swing and miss, and catcher’s fly.

In the third inning, he finished the game with just eight pitches. He grounded out Nelson Velazquez to the third baseman, Maikel Garcia to right field, and Diron Blanco to swing and miss. Nick Loftin, Bobby Weit Jr. and Vinny Pasciantino, who met again in the fourth inning after the batting order turned around, were all suppressed with false shots.

In the fifth inning, Melendes threw an 81.4-mile changeup outside and allowed a double to right-center, but he struck out Renfroe with an 84.2-mile slider and struck out Velazquez with a 93.3-mile fastball to ground out to second base to end the inning.

Texas’ lineup scored the first run with Wyatt Langford’s double to center in the bottom of the fourth inning, when the score was 0-0, and Leody Taveras’ two-run timely hit with two outs and runners on the second and third bases gave the team a 3-0 lead. In the seventh inning, Josh Smith hit a superior solo home run to seal the victory.

Scherzer, who joined the New York Mets in December 2021 after signing a three-year, 130 million-dollar contract in the free agent market, moved to Texas in late July last year through a trade. He was stable with four wins and two losses and an ERA of 3.20 in eight games in the second half. However, he returned to the postseason after suffering a major right shoulder injury at the end of the season, and suffered a loss by allowing nine hits and seven runs in six ⅔ innings in Game 3 of the League Championship Series against the Houston Astros, and suffered a setback in the World Series.

He has 215 wins and 108 losses with a 3.14 ERA and 3,317 strikeouts. He won three Cy Young Awards in 2013 when he was with the Detroit Tigers and 2016-2017 when he was with the Washington Nationals.
