Arizona Diamondbacks ace Jack Gallen continues his good pitching at the beginning of the season and is approaching a historic record.
It is a streak of scoreless innings.
Galen started in the home game against the Kansas City Royals held at Chase Field on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time) and led the team to a 2-0 victory with 4 hits and no runs in 6⅓ innings.
Galen, who won 4 wins (1 loss) in the season, lowered his ERA to 2.15, and 12 strikeouts for the season with 51, rising to first place overall in this category. Throwing 37⅔innings in 6 games this season, this category also ranks first in both leagues. He tied for first place in the National League for most wins, fifth in earned run average, first in WHIP (0.770), and first in strikeout-to-walk ratio (10.20).
Galen continued his scoreless streak of 28 consecutive innings from the 6th inning against the San Diego Padres on the 5th. In particular, he threw 6 or more scoreless innings in all of his recent 4 consecutive games. “Pitching 6 or more scoreless innings in 4 consecutive games” is his second record, and in the 123 years since 1901, only three pitchers in major league history, namely Walter Johnson, Luis Tiant, and Clayton Kershaw, have achieved this record more than once. . Galen was included in the historical ‘group’.
Galen pitched 44⅓ consecutive scoreless innings last season, setting an Arizona team’s record for most runs in that category.
If Galen manages to score 30 consecutive scoreless innings this time, he will become the seventh pitcher in the last 40 years to mark that record in two seasons. Previously, Aurel Hershiser, Roger Clemens, Kenny Rogers, Brandon Webb, Cliff Lee and Kershaw had marked this record.
Galen gave up only four single hits on the day and struck out 12, which he says was not in good shape. After the game, he said, “Would you believe me if I said I wasn’t in good shape today? entered,” he said.
Of the streak of scoreless innings, he said, “If that happens, you just think it happens. You can get on the mound and throw a good ball and not be lucky. You can throw a bad ball and be lucky. You have to be aggressive.” He said he didn’t care too much.
Galen will try to pitch 30 consecutive scoreless innings against the Texas Rangers on May 4. The record for longest consecutive scoreless innings in Major League Baseball was 59 by Hershiser of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1988.메이저놀이터
