Right-handed pitcher Drew Luchinski (34, Oakland Athletics), who returned to the United States after playing for the NC Dinos in the KBO League, is struggling day after day.

On the 10th (Korean time), Luchinski started in the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) New York Yankees visiting game held at Yankee Stadium in New York, USA, and gave up 6 hits (1 home run) in 5 innings, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts and 7 runs (5 earned runs). ) and became a losing pitcher.

He suffered losses in all three starts this season. His earned run average soared from 7.71 to 8.16.

It would not be surprising if he dropped to the minor leagues right away.

Luchinski held on well until the second inning without a run, but in the third inning his pitch was shaken sharply and he was battered.

He threw eight balls down at lead batter Jose Trevino and follow-up hitter Aaron Hicks, causing a crisis on first and second base safely.

Afterwards, Luchinski collapsed with an infielder’s error, three hits, and one sacrifice hit, allowing five runs.

In the fifth, he was hit by a left-handed two-run four by Glaber Torres.

Luchinski, who debuted in the big leagues in 2014, has been active as the best pitcher in the KBO League for four seasons after signing with NC in 2019.

He signed a 1+1 year contract with Oakland in December of last year for a total of 8 million dollars and returned to the big leagues, but he is showing disappointing results.

On this day, Aaron Judge, the Yankees’ leading hitter, returned after 12 days after injuring his right hip joint.토토사이트

Judge started as the second batter in right field and had no hits in three at-bats, one walk, two RBIs and one run.

On the 27th of last month, he was injured while stealing a base in a head-first slide against the Minnesota Twins, and the next day, the pain worsened during the game, and he was replaced and put on the injured list.

Judge had the best season last year with a batting average of 0.311, 62 homers and 131 RBIs, but this season he has shown a somewhat sluggish performance with a batting average of 0.253, 6 homers and 16 RBIs.
