Sandy Alcantara (28, Miami Marlins), who won the National League Cy Young Award last year based on her overwhelming innings digestibility, is having a difficult April.
Miami had a home game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Londippo Park in Miami, Florida, USA on the 17th (hereinafter Korean time).
Alcantara, who started as a Miami starting pitcher that day, 메이저사이트threw 82 pitches (60 strikes) in 6 innings and collapsed with 7 hits and 5 runs (4 earned runs).
His 9 strikeouts without a walk didn’t mean much. As a result, Alcantara could not escape the ERA of 5 points. Until this day, he recorded an earned run average of 5.84.
