I was a no-hitter until the 6th inning… The 7th inning of a nightmare, ‘home run-walk-walk’ became a losing pitcher
It was a no-hitter pitching until the 6th inning. However, he hit a home run in the 7th inning and broke his record, becoming the losing pitcher.
Arizona Diamondbacks’ Merrill Kelly failed again in her first win of the season. Kelly took the mound as a starting pitcher in a game against the Milwaukee Brewers held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on the 12th (Korean time).
Kelly, who continued to be a no-hitter by allowing only two walks and one four-ball through the 6th inning, collapsed after being hit by a home run in the 7th inning. He became the losing pitcher with 1 hit, 4 walks, 1 walk and 3 runs in 6 innings. The season record was 2 losses and an average ERA of 4.11.
Kelly struck out Christian Yelich and walked Willie Adames in the first inning. He grounded Laudi Teles for two outs and grounded Brian Anderson to second base to finish the inning.
He struck out two in the second inning and finished with a three-way strikeout. In the third inning, lead batter Joey Wimmer was walked. He allowed Wimmer to steal second base, but stopped him from stealing third base, and struck out Mike Brosso and Yelich in a row.
The fourth inning ended with Adames throwing a ground ball to third baseman, Telles a floating ball to center fielder, and Anderson throwing a ball to right field. In the 5th inning, after one out, Victor Karatini reached base with a hit ball, but Brice Tourang was treated with a double hit by the second baseman. In the 6th inning, he struck out Broso and Yelich in a row following an infield grounder.
However, in the 7th inning, Adames, the leading hitter, hit a solo home run that went over the fence in the middle as the 91.6 mph sinker on the 2nd pitch from the 1st strike was driven to the center. The no-hitter was broken and even conceded. After allowing a home run, Kelly walked Telles and allowed consecutive walks to Anderson. In the end, he was replaced with relief pitcher Miguel Castro at 1st and 2nd base.
Castro got a hit, which worsened to the bases loaded crisis, and allowed a push walk. With the first out loaded, the runner on third scored on a grounder from the first baseman, and Kelly’s run scored 3 runs. Milwaukee ran away 5-0 with Brosso hitting a double with two RBIs from 2nd, 2nd and 3rd base. Added 1 point each in the 8th and 9th innings.
In the Arizona lineup, Gabriel Moreno went on base with a hit by the lead batter in the third inning against Milwaukee starter Corbin Burns, but the opportunity was canceled by a double hit by the follow-up hitter. After two outs in the eighth inning, Jake McCarthy got the second hit. Burns pitched 8 innings, giving up 3 hits and 8 strikeouts. Milwaukee won 7-1. 토스카지노
