The Texas Rangers, who previously scored 29 points in their opening three games against the Philadelphia Phillies, cooled off today.
Texas lost the home game 0-2 to the Baltimore Orioles held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on the 4th (Korean time). This loss was the first loss of the season.
The entire line was lethargic. An infield hit by Jo Si-young to third baseman in the second inning was the only hit that came out that day. Opponent left fielder Kyle Stoworth hit the fence and caught Adolis Garcia’s batted ball in the 4th inning, but overall, he did not create a threatening bat.
There were unexpected variables. In the second inning, with one company on first and second base, Jonah Haim’s 104-mile ball hit Baltimore starter Kyle Bradysh’s right leg, and Bradys went down the mound as it was.
He failed to target left-hander Danny Colomb and right-hander Tyler Wells, who came on the mound. Wells was responsible for 5 innings.
Coach Bruce Bochy said, “It happens when you play baseball. should fit here This is also part of the game,” he swallowed regret. “You have to acknowledge the opponent’s bullpen. I threw well,” he acknowledged the opposing pitchers.
Texas starter John Gray also threw well. He gave up 4 hits, 2 home runs, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 1/3 innings. Two solo home runs to Gunna Henderson in the 4th inning and Jorge Mateo in the 5th resulted in runs.
Coach Bochy said, “I liked the fastball slider combination. So far, our team selection was the best we’ve shown, but we couldn’t win. This is baseball,” he once again soothed his regret.
“He’s been out of shape the past few days,” Gray said. I feel better now, but I have no energy,” he said. “I like the results more than the content. I tried to fight to the end,” he confessed that it was not an easy start.
He revealed that the two home runs were missed pitches and vowed not to repeat the same mistake, saying, “Usually, I play with fastballs at a disadvantageous count, but today I took it differently and threw a misfire.”
There was also a scary scene in the game that day. Texas’ ninth left fielder Josh Smith was hit in the jaw by Colome’s ball in the third inning. He collapsed and was then taken to the hospital.
Director Bochy recalled the situation at the time, saying, “It’s always scary to see that kind of appearance.” Fortunately, he was spared any major injuries. “I went to the emergency room and took a CT scan, and it came out clean. Good news. His condition improved a little, and I heard that he was talking. We will check again,” he said.
Did the ill-fated injury of a teammate affect hitters? “We don’t have a choice. It’s an ugly scene, but we have to move. It’s part of the game,스포츠토토” he said, saying it wouldn’t have had an impact on the players.
“It was a really scary situation,” Gray said. I hope he’s okay. He is sometimes unavoidable. I really hate to see him,” expressing regret at his teammate’s injury.
