’12G consecutive hits – No. 5 cannon’ Yoshida, ‘OPS exceeded 0.900’
Masataka Yoshida (30, Boston Red Sox), who once recorded a batting average of 10% and an OPS of 0.500, broke the OPS of 0.900 with hits in 12 consecutive games. He also had a batting average of .300 right around the corner.
Boston had a home game against the Toronto Blue Jays on the 3rd (Korean time) at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
On that day, Yoshida, who started as Boston’s sixth designated hitter, hit Yusei Kikuchi with a single run over the middle fence in his second at-bat in the fourth inning with a 2-0 lead. Season 5 issue.
Yoshida then hit Toronto relief pitcher Jack Pop with an RBI in pursuit of left field in the fifth inning with two outs on second and third base, trailing 4-6.
Afterwards, Yoshida picked a walk in the last at-bat of the game in the 7th inning and went on base, completing the game with 3 on base. He recorded one single, one home run, and one walk each.
With this, Yoshida hit the last 12 games in a row since the Minnesota Twins game on the 21st of last month. He also spewed extra-base hits in three straight games.
Yoshida’s hitting accuracy dropped significantly in the middle of last month, and his batting average plummeted to 1. Also, Yoshida’s batted ball didn’t float, revealing a serious problem with his slugging power.
However, starting with a multi-hit game against Minnesota on the 21st of last month, Yoshida is striking a surprising blow. He is also showing excellent pitching skills with 12 walks/11 strikeouts through the last 2 days.
With this, Yoshida recorded a season batting average of 0.298, an on-base percentage of 0.391 and an OPS of 0.902 until this day. He had a batting average of 300 on the verge, and his OPS exceeded 0.900.
Boston chased to 5-6 with Yoshida’s timely hits in the 5th inning, then won 7-6 thanks to Conor Wong’s consecutive home runs in the 6th and 8th innings.
Both teams’ starting pitchers performed poorly. Boston’s Tanner Hauk gave up 6 runs in 6 innings, and Toronto’s Kikuchi gave up 5 runs in 4 1/3 innings.메이저사이트
Boston’s third pitcher, Richard Blair, who blocked a scoreless eighth inning, earned his first win of the season, and Josh Winkowski earned a save.
On the other hand, Toronto’s last pitcher, Eric Swanson, who hit a home run that became the game-winner from Wong in the 8th inning, suffered his first loss of the season.
