“It’s wonderful to be one of those people who leaves their name in history.”
The Toronto Blue Jays won a 13-1 victory in a confrontation with the Boston Red Sox in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts on the 7th (Korean time).
The performance of Davis Schneider, who stepped onto the big league stage for the first time this season, was impressive. Schneider was selected by Toronto with the 849th overall pick in the 28th round of the 2017 draft. He recorded 85 hits, 21 homers, 64 RBIs, 61 runs batting average of 0.275 OPS and 0.969 in the minor leagues this season, and made his major league debut against Boston on the 5th.
Schneider made a strong impression even before his debut with 2 hits in 5 at-bats (1 home run), 1 RBI and 1 run. Then, in the confrontation on the 6th, he made a big success with 3 hits, 1 walk and 1 point in 3 at-bats. His momentum continued in the last game of the three-game series. He started as the third batter and second baseman and swung a fire bat with 4 hits in 5 at-bats (1 home run), 1 walk, 4 RBIs and 1 run.
Schneider warmed up the bat by getting a hit from his first at-bat in the top of the first inning. He struck out in his second at-bat in the top of the third inning, but hit his second home run of the season in the top of the fourth to lead 4–0. With the first runner on first base, he attacked Chris Murphy’s 91.3 mile (approximately 146 km/h) four-seam fastball and crossed the middle left fence.
In the top of the 5th inning, which led 8-1, Schneider came to the plate with one out and loaded the bases, hit base with a hit ball, and scored an RBI. In the top of the 7th inning, he contributed to the team’s 12th run by hitting a timely one RBI with a runner on second base. Recording 4 on base, he completed the 4-hit game with a hit in his last at-bat in the top of the ninth inning.
“Schneider became the first player in major league history to record 9 hits and 2 home runs in the first 3 games,” said the official MLB.com website.
“I know a lot about MLB history. It’s great to be one of them. I can’t express it,” said Schneider, who left his mark on MLB history.메이저사이트
Thanks to Schneider’s performance, Toronto swept three consecutive matches against Boston. Starting on the 8th, we will play four consecutive away matches against the Cleveland Guardians. “We really focused on the three-game series against Boston. We did what we had to do,” said Chris Bassitt, who became the game-winning pitcher that day. “We have to do the same in Cleveland.”
Ryu Hyun-jin will start in the first match of the four-game series against Cleveland. He made his major league comeback in the last two days after lengthy rehabilitation. He gave up 4 runs (4 earned), 9 hits (1 home run), 1 walk and 3 strikeouts in 5 innings against the Baltimore Orioles. This is his second appearance this season. Attention is focusing on whether Schneider, who played a big role in the three-game series against Boston, can lighten Ryu Hyun-jin’s shoulders by swinging a fire bat against Cleveland as well.
