10 Runs in 3 innings that he had never experienced even in his Japanese professional baseball days, ‘ERA 1.89→2.96’

Throwing philosopher Shota Imana (Chicago Cubs) was the worst pitcher since his Major League debut. Now, the ERA in the two-point range cannot be guaranteed.

In a home game against the New York Mets at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Tuesday, Imanaga started the game but pitched the worst by allowing 11 hits and allowing 10 runs during three innings. He pitched 74 pitches, and his fastest fastball speed was 92 miles (148.1 kilometers).

Due to the poor performance on the day, Imana’s ERA soared to 2.96. His ERA was 1.89 before the day’s game, but he rose more than 1.00 in just one game. Now, his ERA in the 2-point range is not guaranteed.

Imanaga got off to a shaky start with a three-run home run by J.D. Martinez after being hit by a solo home run by Francisco Alvarez, the leadoff hitter, in the top of the second inning, he gave up a hit to Jose Iglesias, and two outs later, he gave up six runs in two innings after being hit by a two-run home run by Nemo.

Imanaga, who gave up one more run due to a timely hit by Iglesias with two outs and runners on first and second bases in the top of the third inning, had another nightmare in the top of the fourth inning. Imanaga, who was driven to first and third bases with no outs after a double by Lindor and a hit by Nemo, allowed Martinez to have an RBI timely hit, and was replaced by Hayden Wesneski. And as Wesneski sent both runners left by Imanaga home, his earned run increased to 10 points.

This is the first time in his Japanese professional baseball career that Imana gave up 10 runs in a single game. Imana’s highest number of runs in a single game during his Japanese professional baseball career was eight runs (five innings) against the Hanshin Tigers on April 12, 2017. For Imana, who has been on a roll since his Major League Baseball debut, this day has become remembered as the “worst day” of his baseball career. 스포츠토토사이트
