AL Astros beat Rangers, 2 wins, 2 losses
The rookie pitcher, who left mediocre records with 3 wins and 9 losses in 19 regular season games and an earned run average of 5.72, is flying high in the fall. This is the story of Brandon Part (25) of the MLB (US Professional Baseball) Arizona Diamondbacks. Part started in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on the 20th and pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing 2 hits and no runs. Although he did not become the winning pitcher because he did not receive batting support, he laid the foundation for the team’s 2-1 comeback win.
The Diamondbacks, who were behind by two losses in the series (best of seven), ended their losing streak with a walk-off hit by Ketel Marte (30) in the bottom of the ninth inning. It has been 21 years since the Diamondbacks achieved a walk-off victory in the postseason since Game 7 of the 2001 World Series, when Byung-Hyun Kim was active.
Part did not give up a single walk against the Phillies that day and struck out 9. Most strikeouts in a single game in his personal career. It is said to be the first time since 1949 that a rookie pitcher struck out more than 9 without walking in the MLB postseason. Part is showing off his power in three baseball games this fall, allowing three runs in 12 and two-thirds innings (average ERA 2.13) and striking out 15. In particular, he has recorded 0 walks and 0 runs in two consecutive games as a starter following Game 3 of the division series against the LA Dodgers, which is the first in postseason history.메이저놀이터
Phillies starting pitcher Langer Suarez (28), who faced Part, also shined. He had a great pitching battle with Pat, allowing 3 hits, 7 strikeouts, and no runs in 5 1/3 innings. Although they only achieved one win in three games this postseason, if you look at the details, they are strong, allowing one run in 14 innings (average ERA of 0.64). His overall fall baseball record is 3 wins, 0 losses, and an average ERA of 0.94 in 8 games (6 as a starter). He is showing his ‘autumn man’ side.
