‘Korean descent’ major leaguer Dane Dunning (Texas Rangers) once again fought hard.
Dunning started the 2023 major league match against the Detroit Tigers held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on the 29th (Korean time), recording 2 runs (2 earned runs), 4 hits (1 home run) and 10 strikeouts in 8⅔ innings for the season. 7 wins (1 loss)
Dunning started with a hit by Jack McKinstree in the top of the first inning, but ended the inning by striking out Kerry Carpenter and Javier Baez after Andy Ibanez was treated as a fly ball to center fielder.
The Texas lineup scored 4 runs from the first inning, lightening Dunning’s shoulders. Marcus Semien and Corey Seager scored the first run with consecutive doubles. In the situation of 1 company, 1st and 2nd base, Jo Si-young hit a timely hit with 1 RBI. Afterwards, Ezequiel Duran and Leodi Taveras also scored and took a 4-0 lead. In the bottom of the third, Young and Duran hit a one-run home run to widen the score gap.
Dunning cleanly blocked the 2nd through 5th innings with a three-way attack. In the top of the 6th inning, he struck out Zack Short, handled Jake Marisnick with a grounder from third base, and allowed McKinstree a double, sending a runner into scoring position for the first time, but overcame the crisis by catching Ibanez with a grounder from third base.
Afterwards, the Texas lineup ran away to 10-0 with Adolis Garcia’s two-run homer in the 6th inning, Josh H. Smith’s 1 RBI, and Garcia’s 1 RBI, timely double in the 7th inning.
Dunning, who blocked the 7th and 8th innings with a tripartite offense, went to the mound in the 9th inning as well. After striking out Marisnick, he grounded McKinstree to first base. There was one outcount left until the shutout. But Ibanez got a hit and Carpenter hit a two-run homer. Eventually, Texas lowered Dunning and put Yeri Rodriguez up. Rodriguez was hit by Jake Rodgers, but ended the game with a fly ball to center fielder Eric Haase.
“It was a really fun outing,” Dunning said after the game. “I had one mistake at the end, but the rest of it was very nice. I was able to hit almost every ball. I missed a few balls, but fortunately it didn’t affect me. I continued to feel comfortable. I threw it with heart and rhythm. It was fun,” he said.토토사이트
“Dunning played a really, really good game,” Texas coach Bruce Bochy said. “I can’t tell you how great he was out of the bullpen at the beginning of the season. After Jacob deGrom was injured, we put Dunning in the starting rotation and he was a tremendous player. He did the job. Overall, I think his performance is better than anyone else’s.”
Dunning, who started this season as a reliever pitcher, joined the starting rotation in May after deGrom was injured and has been doing well as a starting pitcher. He has been performing well this season with an earned run average of 2.69 in 18 games (10 starts) 80⅓ innings and 26 runs (24 earned).
