The combined age of the two players is 83 years old. Pittsburgh Pirates left-hander starter Rich Hill (43) and Detroit Tigers designated hitter Miguel Cabrera (40) faced off.
The two players met as starting pitcher and designated hitter No. 7 in the final game of the series between the two teams held at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan on the 18th (Korean time).
An interesting scene came out in the first confrontation in episode 2. In the 0-1 count, Cabrera pushed the 82-mile cutter on the second pitch.
It was good that first baseman Carlos Santana threw his body and made a catch, but the first base was empty. Hill, who noticed this belatedly, started running for first base cover.
Unexpectedly, a running match between two veterans in their 40s, Hill and Cabrera, took place. The 14,542 spectators who visited the stadium watched the two players’ speed match (?) with interest.
The result is Hill’s victory. An out was declared as he stepped on first base by a short distance. After looking at each other and having a light conversation, the two players showed encouragement by patting each other lightly.
The match between the two on this day was a complete victory for Hill. Hill induced beomta in both fights with Cabrera.
Hill dominated not only Cabrera, but other Detroit hitters as well. He showed overwhelming pitching content with 6 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts and no runs. First scoreless pitch this season.메이저놀이터
His highest velocity on his fastball was only 89.8 mph, but instead he fooled Detroit batters with curves of various velocity ranges from 73.1 mph to 67.8 mph.
On this day, the Detroit batters were helpless by the strange curve of Hill. 12 of 41 swings were misses.
