LA Dodgers right-hander Dustin May (26) was beaten by Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) for a decisive double. I was angry and discouraged as I missed the victory I had taken. 

May pitched in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the San Diego Padres, which was played at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, on the 13th (Korean time), pitched well with 6⅔ innings, 5 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and 2 runs. However, he postponed his 5th win of the season to the next opportunity, and was content with maintaining an ERA of 2.68. 

May, who started with 10 consecutive perfect hits before being hit by Jake Cronenworth in the 4th inning with 1 out, showed her crisis management ability by inducing 3 consecutive hits in the 5th inning without an out and 2nd base. 

However, he could not get past the hump in the 7th inning, leading 2-0. After two deaths, Zander Bogarts hit a double that exceeded the center fielder’s height, and after a six-pitch full count match with Matt Carpenter, he allowed a walk. At the same time, while Bogatz stole third base, he met Kim Ha-seong at second out, first and third base. 

Kim Ha-seong was out with a ground ball to third base in the third inning and a ground ball to shortstop in the fifth inning ahead of May. Until the 7th inning at bat, he showed a weak side with 1 hit and 3 strikeouts in 10 at-bats, but he overcame his natural enemy relationship with a single shot in the match. 

In the full count, the 6th pitch 96.2 miles (154.8 km) sinker came in low, but Ha-seong Kim countered at the correct timing with a lightning-like swing. The line drive batted ball went all the way to the front of the left fence. Exit velocity 106.1 mph (170.8 km). The runner on third base as well as the runner on first base came home and scored two RBIs and a double. 

At this moment, May, who went to a backup play behind the catcher, covered her face with a glove and was caught on the relay screen in anger. With the score tied 2-2, May’s victory requirement was blown away, and he was immediately replaced by Caleb Ferguson at second base. Total number of pitches: 90, highest 98.3 miles (158.2 km), average 96.3 miles (155 km) Centered on sinker (27), cutter (19), four-seam fastball (18), curveball (17), changeup (7) but missed victory, and May, sitting in the dugout, looked downcast with her head down.

The Dodgers won 4-2 with consecutive home runs by Mookie Betts and Freddy Freeman in the 7th inning, but Mayro was not happy. After the game, he said, “I had a quality start. He’s had a good start, but he should’ve finished better. I couldn’t do that,” he said, regretting the 토토사이트 match with Kim Ha-seong, who was the last opponent in the 7th inning. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, “It was good that I threw a little more breaking balls and adjusted the pace. He pitched effectively into the strike zone. He praised May, saying, “Except for the two RBI doubles (hit by Kim Ha-seong), it was great.” 

May, who debuted in the major leagues in 2019, contributed to the Dodgers’ World Series victory by playing an active part in 12 games, 3 wins, 1 loss and an average ERA of 2.57 during the 2020 Corona shortened season. Then, in May 2021, he underwent elbow ligament joint surgery and returned after rehabilitation in August of last year. This year, he entered the opening rotation and is fighting well with an average ERA of 2.68 with 4 wins and 1 loss in 8 games (47 innings).
