Drew Luchinski (35, Oakland Athletics), who played an active role as the NC Dinos ace in the KBO League, sweated in a return match to the big league after 5 years.
On the 29th (Korean time), Luchinski started in the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds at Ring Central Coliseum in California, USA.
While throwing 5⅔ innings, Luczynski, who got 11 hits, including one home run, allowed 5 runs (3 earned runs). 89 pitches. The highest speed was 90.5 miles (about 145.6 km).
It is a major league mound that will stand again after 5 years.
Luchinski, who entered the big league wearing a LA Angels uniform in 2014, went through Minnesota Twins and Miami Marlins until 2018. Luchinski, who had an average ERA of 5.33 in 41 major league games, 4 wins and 4 losses, later jumped into the KBO league with the hands of NC.
Luczynski, who won 9 wins (9 losses) in 2019, his first year with NC, led the team to its first combined championship by posting 19 wins (5 losses) the following year. Until last year, he recorded an average ERA of 3.06 with a total of 53 wins and 36 losses in the KBO League, playing the role of an ace.
Based on his performance in NC, ahead of the 2023 season, he signed a two-year contract with Oakland for up to $8 million (about 10.7 billion won), and moved back to the United States.
He received attention as a starting resource, but his start to the season was delayed due to a hamstring injury at the end of an exhibition game.
After recovering his physical condition, Luchinski stepped on the big league mound again 1672 days after the New York Mets match on September 30, 2018, when he belonged to Miami.
However, he was thrilled for a while and had a bad comeback due to Cincinnati’s intensive hitting.
Luchinski, who passed the first inning with only one hit and no runs, quickly gave up three runs in the second inning, leading 1-0.
After one shot, Jake Fraley, Henry Ramos, and Nick Senzel hit three consecutive hits to tie the game. In the continued second out and first base, Stuart Fairchild and Jose Barrero hit consecutive doubles and gave up two more runs.
There were also errors in the third inning. Luczynski induced a ground ball to Spencer Steer in a situation where there was no runner on the first out, but the third baseman did not catch the ball.메이저놀이터
Luchinski, who sent a runner out due to an error, had to watch as the ball went over the fence in the middle after being hit with a slider by Fralee from 2nd and 2nd base. The score is 1-5.
Bertin Luchinski, who did not allow additional runs, passed the mound to Sam Long in the 6th inning with 2nd out and 3rd base. Long induced a fly ball to TJ Friedel, and Luchinski’s runs did not increase.
Oakland pursued with 2 runs in the 6th inning and 2 runs in the 7th, but failed to turn the game around and lost 7-11.
