Cincinnati Reds Ellie Dera Cruz, a ‘newcomer of superpower’, hit a large home run that reached 139m.
In an away game against the Milwaukee Brewers held at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on the 25th (Korean time), Cruz started as the first shortstop and recorded 1 hit in 4 at-bats, 2 RBIs and 1 run, including a home run.
Cruz stole a home run in his first at-bat. The ball that seemed to go over the wall was caught by the opponent’s center fielder.
In the ball count 1B1S, Milwaukee right-hander starter Colin Ray hit the sinker in the middle of the 92.9 mile pitch and flew over the center field fence with a launch angle of 32 degrees and a speed of 104.2 miles.
However, in the second at-bat in the 3rd inning, with the score trailing 0-1, Cruz succeeded in getting revenge by hitting a large home run that Milwaukee outfielders could not even dare to dare.
Cruz, who entered the second at-bat with 1 out and 1 base, pulled Ray’s first pitch of 88.4 mph into the low strike zone and threw it toward the middle right. The ball, which left the bat with a launch angle of 26 degrees and a speed of 113.7 miles, landed behind the Toyota Motor billboard over the fence in the middle right. It flew a whopping 456 feet (139 m).
Cruz’s 6th home run of the season, after hitting the Arizona Diamondbacks the previous day, he hit an arch two days in a row. In terms of distance, it was the second farthest after the 458-foot two-run home run against Noah Syndergaard against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 8.
However, when Cruise entered the plate in the third inning, the electronic board introduced Cruise and said, “Almost hit a home run in the first inning…But Didn’t.” It is like taking revenge on the home team’s mocking message.
Cruz received applause for his impressive play on defense. He hit a come-from-behind home run, and in the bottom of the 3rd inning, 1 out 1 and 3 base situation. Two runners attempted a double steal the moment Milwaukee hitter Sal Frelick was out with a looking strikeout. Catcher Tyler Stephenson quickly threw to second base. At this time, shortstop Cruz, who came in base cover, snatched the ball, and third base runner William Contreras hesitated before jumping back into the home field. He threw the ball to Stensenson at the speed of a bullet and tagged him out with plenty of time.메이저놀이터
However, Cincinnati suffered a reversal defeat. Milwaukee tied the score at the bottom of the 6th inning with a solo shot by Frellick, who was trailing 1-2, and then scored the winning run in the bottom of the 9th with a right-handed hit by 1st and 2nd baseman Christian Yelich, ending the game 3-2.
