New York Yankees ‘Ace’ Gerrit Cole had the worst day of the season.
Cole started in the 2023 Major League Tampa Bay Race and away game held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA on the 8th (hereinafter Korean time) and was sluggish with 8 hits (2 home runs), 6 strikeouts, 2 walks and 5 runs in 5 innings. .
Although they avoided defeat, the team lost 7-8. The Yankees hoped for Ace Cole, but failed. Cole’s ERA this season rose from 1.35 to 2.09.
메이저놀이터 After the game, Cole lamented, “I have to find a better way to avoid conceding.” Above all, Cole, who did not allow a single home run in seven games earlier, met Tampa Bay and was beaten twice.
At the end of the 5th inning, Tampa Bay outfielder Jose Siri hit a mid-month solo shot, and at the end of the 6th inning, catcher Christian Betancourt, who played in the KBO League wearing an NC Dinos uniform in 2019, hit a mid-month three-run.
Cole was gutted after giving up a home run to Betancourt. MLB.com said, “Ciri and Betancourt hit 33 home runs last year, but they hit a home run against Cole, who did not allow a home run in 51 consecutive innings this year.”
Cole had no home run in 46⅔ consecutive innings from the first appearance of the season against the San Francisco Giants to the game against the Cleveland Guardians on the 3rd. In the game against Tampa Bay that day, he pitched well without a home run until the 4th inning.
