Edmon, who is about to join WBC Lee Kang-cheol-ho, has no hits in his first demonstration game
Reporter Lee Sang-cheol = Tommy Hyun-soo Edman (St. Louis Cardinals), who is about to join ‘Lee Kang-cheol-ho’, digested his first demonstration game in the Major League (MLB).
On the 26th (hereinafter Korean time), Edmund started as the first batter and shortstop in the major league exhibition game against the Washington Nationals held at Roger Dean Chevolle Stadium in Jupiter, Florida, USA, and recorded no hits and one strikeout in two at-bats.
Edmon, a Korean-American, will participate in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) wearing the Taegeuk mark. He plans to develop a sense of actual combat by playing demonstration games until he arrives in Korea on March 1, and this match was his first real match this year. 토토사이트
Edmon, who had built his body with sweat, did not seem to be on the right track yet.
As the lead batter in the bottom of the first inning, he struck out on opposing starting pitcher Mackenzie Gore’s 95.2 mile (approximately 153.2) fastball. In the bottom of the third inning, right after Brendan Donovan’s come-from-behind two-run home run, Edmund, who was back at bat, engaged Willie Peralta in a close five-pitch match, but was dismissed with a fly by center fielder.
Edman was replaced by Kramer Robertson after the bottom of the third inning, ending the game early. On this day, St. Louis changed all of the starting players, including Edmon, after taking two at-bats and gave them a break.
Meanwhile, St. Louis gave up one point each in the top of the 8th and 9th innings due to the bullpen shaking that day, and suffered a 2-3 come-from-behind loss.
Starter Adam Wainwright, selected for the U.S. WBC national team, started and allowed 3 hits and 1 walk in 2 innings, but endured with 1 run.
St. Louis will play its second exhibition game against the Miami Marlins on the 27th.
