Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Tony Gonsolin (29) had the worst day of his career. The Dodgers, which Gonsolin failed to hold on to, ended their 11-game winning streak with a complete defeat.
On the 19th (Korean time), Gonsolin started the game against the Miami Marlins in the ‘2023 Major League Baseball’ held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA.메이저사이트
Gonsolin took the mound in 24 games last year and recorded 16 wins, 1 loss, 130⅓ innings, and an average ERA of 2.14, serving as an axis of the team’s starting lineup. He wrote a new career high and received a lot of expectations for the 2023 season, but so far he has been showing unsatisfactory pitching.
On this day, the sluggish flow of this year was revealed. From the beginning of the game, Gonsolin had a lot of trouble dealing with the Miami lineup.
In the top of the first inning, Gonsolin gave up a 0-1 lead after being hit by a solo shot by lead batter Jorge Solaire. In the beginning of the second inning, when the score was 1-1, he made a save by blocking it with a tripartite offense, but from the beginning of the third inning, a nightmare-like game unfolded. Starting with another solo home run to Solaire, who was the lead batter in the top of the 3rd inning, he allowed a 3-run home run to Jake Burger and a 2-run home run to Jacob Starlings, allowing a total of 6 runs. The score was now 1-7.
Entering the fourth inning, Gonsolin again bowed his head to a home run. With 1 out, 2nd and 3rd base, he gave up a 3-run homer to Jazz Chizom Jr., widening the gap to 1-10. In the end, the Dodgers changed the mound, and Gonsolin had to watch the team lose 3-11 with a final score of 3⅓ innings, 8 hits (5 homers), 4 walks, 2 strikeouts and 10 runs. Season 5 losses (8 wins).
The Dodgers were on an 11-game winning streak until this day. Starting from the San Diego Padres match on the 7th, Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, and other National League Western Division teams were captured one after another, raising momentum.
However, the atmosphere did not continue against Miami. Gonsolin couldn’t stop the Miami lineup, and at the same time, the Dodgers lineup only scored 3 runs while driving 10 hits.
With this loss, the Dodgers improved their season record to 74 wins and 47 losses. Still leading the National League West division, Gonsolin, who grew up as an ace last year, needs to regain his skills to win the World Series that the team wants.
Gonsolin is sluggish with an average ERA of 4.98 in 103 innings in 20 games this year, including this game. Attention is focusing on whether he will be able to overcome the worst of his career and rebound.
