The Los Angeles Angels infield allowed a runner on second base to score on a ground ball. Even the fans who came to the home game booed. The director also complained.
The Angels lost 4-6 against the Washington Nationals at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California on the 11th (Korean time). He led 4-1 until the 3rd inning, but allowed the score to be tied in the 4th inning and handed over the atmosphere.
Tucker Davidson, who came out as the second pitcher in the tie, lost the game with 2 runs in 3 innings. One of these two runs was a score that could have been prevented by the defense.
The problem was the score in the 7th inning when the score was 4-5. Davidson induced a ground ball to Victor Robles from 1st, 1st and 2nd base. Second baseman Luis Lenhipo caught the ball and passed it to shortstop David Fletcher. Fletcher attempted a double play to end the inning, but Robles’ foot was faster than the throw to first base.
However, there was another fact overlooked by the Angels infield. At this time, Dominic Smith, who was runner on second base, hit third base and rushed straight to home. Brandon Drury, who received the ball from first base, missed Smith’s position while looking at the referee. The Angels gave up a run to the second base runner on a ground ball.
Some fans booed enough to be heard on the broadcast. The local relay team also raised their voices and pointed out that Drury missed the runner.
It was the second half of the game where one point was disappointing. The Angels eventually lost by not being able to recover by two points. The content of the last two games, losing a 6-0 lead against Toronto on the 10th and coming from behind, is not good. 메이저놀이터
Angels coach Phil Nevin pointed out, “We knew that the opponent (Smith) was a quick-footed and athletic player. He was like that too. We made a mistake. We shouldn’t have been looking for a double play in a situation where we shouldn’t have given up an extra point.” .
On the 12th, the Angels are trying to escape their losing streak by using starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani. This is Ohtani’s first start against Washington in his debut. Washington announced 25-year-old pitcher Josiah Gray as the starter. Gray was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the second round of the 2018 draft. He went through the Los Angeles Dodgers and was traded to Washington.
