‘7 runs’ Manoa again early steel… Toronto, troubled by sluggish ace

 Ryu Hyun-jin’s team, the Toronto Blue Jays, is suffering from a sluggish ‘first start’. Alec Manoa, who finished third in the American League Cy Young Award voting last year, is showing disappointment this year.

Manoa started on the 17th (Korean time) in the 2023 Major League (MLB) Tampa Bay Race and home game held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and was sluggish with 4 ⅔ innings, 9 hits (1 home run), 4 walks, 1 ball, 5 strikeouts and 7 runs. did.

Manoa recorded their first loss of the season as Toronto lost 1-8.

Toronto, which stopped Tampa Bay’s opening record of 14 consecutive wins on the 15th, tried to sweep the home three games in a row, but the other line was tied with six hits and Manoa lost a lot of runs.

Manoa shook greatly from the first inning on this day and allowed 3 points. He brought on the bases safely with 2 4 walks and 1 hit, and then allowed Wander Franco to walk for a push. Afterwards, he struck out Luke Reilly and Taylor Walls in succession, but Josh Lowe hit two timely RBIs.

In the 5th inning, it collapsed with 4 runs, including a 3-run home run by Christian Betancourt, who had experience playing for the NC Dinos in the past.

Manoa hit another hit from Yandi Diaz after hitting a home run, and the Toronto bench switched pitchers. As a result, Manoa went down the hill without lasting even 5 times in 3 out of 4 games he started this season.

Manoa, who started as Toronto’s opening game starter this season, has been showing disappointing results every time. His ERA of 6.98 ranks 68th out of 71 pitchers who have pitched innings. He earned his first win with 7 scoreless innings against the Kansas City Royals on the 6th, but was knocked out early in all the other 3 games. He has a very high batting average (0.288) and on-base per inning (1.97).

This is in contrast to the salty water pitching with an average ERA of 1.44 while sweeping 4 wins in 4 games at the beginning of last year. 안전놀이터

Toronto is tied for second place with the New York Yankees in the American League East Division with 10 wins and 6 losses. It’s not a bad start, but Ace is creaking, so there is no choice but to worry.

Manoa’s average fastball speed recorded against Tampa Bay was 93.6 miles (about 150.6 km), which is not much different from his record in the previous two seasons.

However, the command is greatly shaken due to the retrieval. Canadian media ‘Sportsnet’ pointed out that “Manoa hit the batter’s shoulder from the first pitch he threw against Tampa Bay. He revealed command problems when throwing the ball into the right-handed hitter’s in-course and left-handed hitter’s out-course.”

Manoa said there were still positive aspects, and he promised to bounce back in an away game against the Yankees, who will start on the 23rd. He said, “I felt good (when pitching). The speed of the fastball came out well and some balls were quite powerful. I will show a different appearance in the next game,” he said. “I will use all my weapons.”

Toronto coach John Schneider said, “If Manoa catches two strikes within three pitches when dealing with batters, he will be able to pitch more effectively.” Manoa has been a very important player for the past two seasons, and his presence will not be different in the future.”
