Traver Bauer (32), the ‘Bad Boy Cy Young Award Winner’, suffered a losing streak by allowing 7 runs in two consecutive matches.
Since advancing to Japanese professional baseball, he has not been able to establish himself except for his first game, such as allowing a home run in every game.
Still, there was an appearance of taking responsibility for innings, but this time I couldn’t digest even innings properly.
Bauer took the mound as a starting pitcher in a match against the Hiroshima Toyo Carp held at Yokohama Stadium on the 16th.
However, he came down the mound after allowing 8 hits (1 home run), 1 strikeout, 1 walk, 1 wild throw and 7 runs in 2 innings.
It was a 7-run game in two consecutive games after the Yomiuri Giants match on the 9th.
His highest velocity came to 157 km, the highest since advancing to Japan. However, he could not overwhelm Japanese batters at all with his power.
After one out in the first inning, he allowed Noma a double through the middle right and was immediately put into a crisis. Then, a wild throw came out of Akiyama’s at-bat, and Akiyama gave up the first run with a double that split the middle right.
After that, he gave up a double through left-center to McBrum, depriving him of one more run.
Then, he allowed Nishikawa a two-run home run that went over the right-middle fence and gave up the fourth run. It was a home run in three consecutive games.
In the 2nd inning, he lost 3 points again and completely gave up the flow.
After allowing lead hitter Gorasawa a double, after Tokoda’s sacrifice bunt, he allowed a fielder’s choice, walk, and consecutive hits, giving up three more runs.
The score was 7-0 at the end of the second inning. After the second episode, he was replaced by Kamichattani.
He gave up 7 runs (13 earned) in 2 consecutive games and his earned run average soared to 8.40. In addition, being replaced in two innings is the shortest record since advancing to Japan. Previously, he lasted up to 6 innings.
After the game, coach Miura Yokohama said, “(There must be something). (From Yomiuri match) It is caught by hitters in two consecutive times. I was gripped too tight. I feel like I have been analyzed for something,” he said, suspecting the exposure of his habits.
It means that I think there is a reason why Bauer is constantly getting hit even though his pitch is not bad. Japan has the technological prowess of catching pitchers’ habits and converting them into data. He seemed to think that Bauer’s sluggishness was a mystery, if not for the exposure of his habit.
He then tilted his head, saying, “(Including the second military trip), we have to think about future measures.”토토사이트
It seems likely that future measures may include a decision on the second military operation. Questions from the Japanese media were also focused on the possibility of second military service.
Bauer spent the winter in his individual training, so his training volume is bound to be underwhelming. It can be interpreted that the speed comes out, but the ability to overwhelm the batter is because the power at the end of the ball has decreased.
If there is a way he can solve it with training, he should find a way out.
It remains to be seen whether coach Miura will be able to send a big player named Bauer to the second team.
