Lance Lin (36, LA Dodgers), the ‘home run king’, did not end up being the Dodgers’ winning contractor. Lin won the National League Division Series held at Chase토토사이트
Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA on the 12th (Korean time). (NLDS) He appeared as a starting pitcher in Game 3 and became the losing pitcher with 6 hits, 4 home runs, 1 strikeout, and 4 runs in 2⅔ innings. The Dodgers, who lost their starting pitcher for three consecutive games, were not able to win a single game against Arizona and were eliminated from the fall baseball season.
The Dodgers, who had suffered two consecutive losses as Clayton Kershaw (6 hits, 6 runs, 1⅓ innings) in Game 1 and Bobby Miller (4 hits, 3 runs, 1⅔ innings) collapsed early in Game 2, chose Lin as the starting card on the brink, but the results were as expected. .
Lin allowed 44 home runs, the most in the Major League during this year’s regular season. Lin’s number of home runs is the same as that of American League home run king Shohei Ohtani (44 home runs), and Lin, who became the ‘home run factory manager’, was defeated by home runs in the fall baseball as well.
Lin, who finished the first inning cleanly with a three-way strike, suffered consecutive hits after two outs in the bottom of the second inning, and was in danger of reaching first and second base. Lin, who had a full-count match with Evan Longoria, ended the second inning by striking out a missed swing with a fastball on the 6th pitch, preventing the crisis.
However, the home run factory that had been feared in the third inning was put into operation. Lin gave up the first run after hitting a solo shot from leadoff hitter Heraldo Perdomo. Then, after getting one out, he again allowed a solo shot to Ketel Marte. Even though Lin allowed two home runs, the Dodgers bench made no move to replace him.
In the end, Lin completely collapsed after two outs after hitting back-to-back home runs by Christian Walker and Gabriel Moreno. The Dodgers bench watched until Lin suffered the humiliation of four home runs in one inning, and then they replaced the pitcher with Caleb Ferguson. Arizona, which hit 4 home runs in the 3rd inning against Lin, became the first team in history to hit 4 home runs in 1 inning in the postseason.
On July 29, the Dodgers acquired Lin along with Joe Kelly from the Chicago White Sox to reinforce the mound. Lin, who had performed poorly with the White Sox with 6 wins, 9 losses, and an ERA of 6.47 in 21 games, successfully rebounded with 7 wins, 2 losses, and an ERA of 4.36 in 11 games after transferring to the Dodgers. However, his home runs per 9 innings actually increased from 2.11 (28 in 119⅔ innings) to 2.25 (16 in 64 innings). The Dodgers tried to solve their mound problems by recruiting the experienced Lin, but in the end, the home run factory that continued to run even in the fall baseball season could not prevent the Dodgers from being eliminated.
