Major League Baseball (MLB) New York Mets 40-year-old veteran right-handed pitcher Justin Verlander recorded a record of victories against all 30 clubs.
Verlander started the 2023 MLB game against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 11th (Korean time) and pitched well with 2 hits, 7 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 run in 7 innings and the team won 2-1. towed
Verlander, who reported his first victory this 스포츠토토 season, achieved victory against all 30 major league clubs.
MLB was founded in 1998 by the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Tampa Bay Rays and became a system of 30 clubs. Afterwards, Al Reiter (then Mets) was named the first winning pitcher against all 30 clubs.
The most recent to achieve an all-team victory was written by New York Yankees ace Gerrit Colo against the Houston Astros on July 11, 2021.
Among other active players, Max Scherzer (Mets) completed victories against 30 clubs in 2016 and Zack Greinke (Kansas City Royals) in 2019.
Verlander, who earned his first win against the Texas Rangers on April 9, 2006 while playing for the Detroit Tigers, won against the Miami Marlins last year, leaving only Cincinnati to win against his former team.
Verlander took the mound against Cincinnati in 2012 and 2019, giving up 2 runs in 6 innings and 4 runs in 7 innings, respectively, but did his part, but failed to become a winning pitcher. In his 2019 appearance, he suffered a yoke of defeat.
However, he won against Cincinnati, who met for the third time, and won against the former team. It is the 21st all time.
“It’s wonderful to be able to do something that so many haven’t achieved,” Verlander said.
Verlander, who debuted in the big leagues with Detroit in 2005, has consistently performed well.
Starting with 17 wins in 2006, he reaped nine consecutive double-digit wins through 2014. In 2011, he won 24 games.
He stayed with 5 wins in 2015, but from 2016 to 2019, he also won 10 or more every season.
Verlander, who suffered elbow pain after starting the 2020 season opener and received elbow ligament surgery (Tommy John surgery) in September of that year, signed with the Houston Astros ahead of the 2022 season and successfully returned to the big leagues.
Verlander threw 175 innings in 28 games last year and showed off his strength with an outstanding record of 18 wins and 4 losses with an ERA of 1.75.
Verlander, who held the Cy Young Award for the third time in his personal career following 2011 and 2019 last year, signed a two-year, $86 million free agent contract with the Mets after the 2022 season.
With an annual salary of $43.33 million this year, Verlander, who was named the highest earner along with Scherzer, who plays with the Mets, was diagnosed with a teres major sprain just before the start and started the season on the injured list.
Verlander, who made his first appearance of the season against Detroit on the 5th, suffered 2 runs in 5 innings, but in his second appearance of the season, he showed his best skills and embraced victory.
