The hitting feeling of Masataka 먹튀검증 Yoshida (Boston Red Sox), a man of ’90 million dollars (approximately 114.5 billion won)’, is unusual. At this pace, it is worth aiming for the American League batting champion.
On the 17th (Korean time), Yoshida started as a left fielder in the 2023 Major League Chicago Cubs away match held at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, USA, and flew wildly with 3 hits, 6 RBIs and 2 points in 5 at-bats.
In the first at-bat as the lead batter in the second inning, Yoshida stepped back with a ground ball to third base, but only struck out in the top of the fourth inning with an opportunity to safely run to first and second base.
But after that, he swung a fire bat at bat. In the top of the 5th inning, when the team was leading 2-0, Justin Steel hit a 88.9 mile fast ball on the 3rd pitch with 2 outs loaded, hitting a home run with the bases loaded. He passed the right fence with a line drive. Season 11.
Yoshida’s activities do not end here. In the beginning of the 7th inning, when the team was ahead 6-0, with one company on 1st and 2nd base, after a full count match with the changed pitcher Michael Rooker, he pulled a fast ball on the 7th pitch and split the middle right. While the center fielder briefly missed the ball, Yoshida managed to advance to third base. 2 runs and 3 bases.
The Cubs put the fielder on the mound in the ninth inning as the score went up to 11-3. Catcher Tucker Van Hart stepped up to pitch. Yoshida created a right-handed hit against Banhart in a situation where there was no runner in the first company. He hit the ball 39.9 miles (64 km) on Banhart’s third pitch. This completed his three-hit game.
In particular, Yoshida recorded multi-hits in 8 out of 9 games held this month. He had 2 hits in 7 consecutive games from the 2nd to the 15th in the past.
This isn’t the first time Yoshida has hit a grand slam with 6 RBIs. Previously, on April 24, against the Milwaukee Brewers, he flew with a grand home run and 6 RBIs.
On this day, Yoshida’s season batting average jumped to 0.317 because of his big success. He had 100 hits and 50 RBIs in 81 games.
As of the 17th, the American League batting average is No. 1 Yandy Diaz (Tampa Bay). He is hitting 0.323. It is 0.006 difference from Yoshida. He is poised to rise from rookie king to batting king.
Yoshida expressed his confidence, saying, “I am confident. I can evolve further.”
