“He emerged as a reliable starting pitcher”… It’s okay to be shaken in the beginning of ‘Korean Big Leaguers’ → Finish with QS+

Dane Dunning (Texas Rangers), a Korean major leaguer, played well.

Dunning started on the 18th (Korean time) in the 2023 major league match against the Tampa Bay Rays held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, USA and recorded 2 runs (2 earned), 5 hits (1 home run), 2 walks and 4 strikeouts in 7 innings. did.온라인카지노

Dunning’s start was not good. After being hit by Yandi Diaz in the top of the first inning, he walked Wander Franco and was put in danger on first and second base safely. He then induced Luke Rayleigh to hit a ground ball in front of the first baseman, and only caught Franco. With 1 out, 1st and 3rd base, Randy Arosarena scored an RBI on a sacrifice fly and Dunning conceded. Later, Rayleigh succeeded in stealing and became second base with two outs, but Brandon Lowe was treated as a floating ball in right field.

Dunning allowed a home run in the top of the second inning. He started the inning by striking out Jose Siri, but was hit by a one-run home run by Josh Lowe. He threw a 92.2 mile (approximately 148 km/h) four-seam fastball that spanned the inside border line, but Lowe countered it and crossed the middle fence. However, after striking out Taylor Walls, he treated Christian Betancourt with a straight hit to third baseman.

Dunning, who passed the third inning without a major crisis, faced a crisis at the beginning of the fourth inning. After catching Brandon Lowe with a floating ball in center field, he was hit by Siri. Then came a violent fight. He allowed a hit to Josh Lowe, and Lowe succeeded in stealing the base, becoming 1st, 2nd and 3rd base. However, he overcame the crisis by striking out Walls and turning Bethancourt into a floating ball in right field.

Dunning found stability after that. In the top of the 5th, after two outs, he sent Rayleigh out on a hit ball to the body, but Arosarena grounded shortstop. Then, in the 6th and 7th innings, he came down from the mound after stopping the three-way offense.

Texas tied the game in the bottom of the sixth. After leadoff hitter Robbie Grossman hit, Ezequiel Duran hit a two-run homer to tie the game. He hit Shane Mcclanahan’s 97.2 mile (approximately 156 km/h) four-seam fastball and crossed the right fence.

Then, in the bottom of the ninth, he won the game. Leading batter Josh Young hit a double and was replaced by runner Josh H. Smith. After Adolis Garcia struck out, Nathaniel Rowe’s base hit allowed Smith to advance to third base. It was followed by Pete Fairbanks’ wild throw from Mitch Garber’s plate. Smith drove home and scored. He won the end-of-the-field fight.

Dunning recorded a Quality Start Plus (QS+, 3 earned runs over 7 innings). His ERA this season has gone down to 2.82.

American media ‘CBS Sports’ said, “Dunning seemed to have a difficult game when he gave up one run each in the first two innings. But he settled after that and did not allow Tampa Bay to score for the rest of the innings.”

“After joining the starting rotation in May, Dunning struck out 52 and walked 20 in 78⅔ innings in 13 games. With a record of 6 wins and 2 losses, he emerged as a reliable starting pitcher for Texas.”
