Los Angeles Dodgers giant Max Muncy (33) was sent off while appealing to the umpire’s ball decision. He’s hard-nosed with inconsistent reward rolls.
After striking out looking for Jack Flaherty in the 4th inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 22nd (Korean time), Muncy expressed dissatisfaction with the ball decision to referee Nick Lentz.
If you look at MLB.com Game Day, the ball that came in low in the middle of the 4th ball was judged to be a ball, and the 5th ball came in at the same height outside. Both balls passed through the strike zone, but the ball in front was a ball and the ball in the next was a strike, which was inconsistent.
Confused by this, Muncy expressed dissatisfaction. Muncy, who was going into the dugout, pointed the bat at third base referee Paul Emmel, who had seen the referee the day before, and pointed at home plate, as if his anger had not subsided. In the end, Emmel was ejected by the referee.
According to local media, including the ‘LA Times’, after the game, Muncy said, “The frustration accumulated over the weekend exploded. The previous ball came in almost the same position. It doesn’t matter whether the ball was a ball or a strike, but when the opposing catcher (Wilson Contreras) said ‘terrible decision’, the next ball was given as a strike. At that point he was frustrated. It happened all weekend,” he said. It was dissatisfaction with the inconsistent compensation judgment.
From the time he struck out looking in the 8th inning in the game the day before (21st), Muncy has been dissatisfied with the referees’ judgment on the ball. At that time, when Ryan Helsley’s ball off the outside of the fifth pitch was struck out by referee Emmel as a strike, Muncy shook his head and threw off his helmet roughly. Muncy hit a home run on the first day of a 4-game road trip to St. Louis, but struggled with his only hit, going 1-for-12 with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts in 4 games.
The Dodgers also suffered a losing series in almost a month, finishing with 1 win and 3 losses in 4 consecutive away matches against St. Louis. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, “The losing series is not a pleasant thing. It goes without saying if it is 3 out of 4 games,” he said. Regarding Muncy’s exit, “The decision to play the ball the day before had an impact. But the referee sent off was the right decision. I could talk to the referee, but even yesterday, to the referee, it was worth sending off.”
Muncy also said,메이저사이트 “I needed to be a little smarter about this. He had his say at home plate. It was over with that, but it was too much for the third base referee.”
Geopo Muncy, who is recording 159 homers in his career, has a batting average of .201 (30 hits in 143 at-bats) in 43 games this season, but is showing a long-term performance with 15 home runs, 33 RBIs, and a slugging average of .538 OPS .894. It is second in home runs in the major leagues after Pete Alonso (New York Mets, 17).
