Leaving the New York Mets due to a trade, Max Scherzer, the best pitcher in the US Major League, wearing a Texas Rangers uniform, continues to fight hard.
Texas won 12-0 in the 2023 Major League Baseball match held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on the 15th (Korean time). Scherzer, who started, threw a perfect pitch.
Scherzer won his 12th win (fourth loss) of the season by fighting 7 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 11 strikeouts and no runs. After his transfer, he had the cleanest pitching.꽁머니사이트
As the Mets and Texas traded, Scherzer, the 2013 American League and 2016-2017 National League Cy Young Award pitcher, moved to the team. Texas, which is aiming for the top spot in the American League West and the World Series, recruited Scherzer to complete the starting lineup.
Scherzer became the winning pitcher in all three games after the transfer. In the Chicago White Sox match on the 4th, he became the winning pitcher with 3 runs in 6 innings. Afterwards, on the 9th away from Oakland Athletics, he added a multiplier with a good pitching of 7 innings and 1 run.
Against the Angels that day, it was a perfect pitch that did not give up even one point. He also caught Shohei Ohtani, the Angels’ “two-hitter” star, who is second in major league home runs (41) and first in OPS (1.067). Ohtani was silent on the day with no hits and two strikeouts in three at-bats.
Scherzer struck out Ohtani swinging in the first inning, and struck out swinging in the fourth inning. In the sixth, he blocked a fly ball to third base. On Scherzer’s good pitching, MLB.com noted that “Schrezer is living up to expectations by appearing in three games in Texas.”
“There’s a reason he’s an ‘elite’ pitcher,” said Scherzer’s new teammate, two-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger shortstop Corey Seager. He goes on the mound every five days and proves it.”
“Shurzer is very well prepared,” said Texas coach Bruce Bochy. Scherzer commented on his victory, saying, “I think I got along well with catcher Mitch Garber. He kept in good breath,” he said.
