3 RBIs in the first game of debut!
The rise of the American professional baseball major league Baltimore Orioles is fierce. Baltimore won 7-4 in an away game against the Detroit Tigers held at Comerica Park in Detroit on the 27th local time. With this victory, Baltimore recorded 17 wins and 8 losses for the season, running second in the American League (AL) following the Tampa Bay Rays.
Baltimore called up shortstop Joey Ortiz, the team’s seventh-best prospect, from Triple-A to the big leagues ahead of today’s game. As soon as he was called up, Ortiz, who started as the ninth hitter and second baseman, led the team to victory with three RBIs.
According to ‘MLB.COM’, it is the first time in 53 years since Don Baylor on September 18, 1970 that a rookie has scored 3 RBIs in the first game of his debut since the founding of Baltimore. Don Baylor, who started his career with Baltimore, retired with 1,276 RBIs.
Ortiz scored two RBIs with a hit that slightly exceeded the height of the first baseman at the beginning of the 5th inning, when he was trailing 0-3. It was his first hit and RBI in his debut.
Ortiz came to the plate in the top of the 7th inning when he chased 2 to 4. 1 RBI was added by hitting a sacrifice fly to center fielder from 2nd and 3rd base. In the end, the Orioles, who gained momentum, defeated Detroit with a big five-run inning. 토토사이트
Ortiz is a shortstop selected by Baltimore in the 4th round of the 2019 draft. At the time of the draft, he was a player with strengths in defense rather than offense, but since last year he has been showing good performance in offense. Last year he had a 0.967 OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) in Triple-A and 0.889 this season.
If Ortiz settles into the big leagues, Baltimore will be able to build a starting lineup mainly with young players for years to come.
Ortiz’s motives for joining include catcher Adley Luchman, who has already grown into the team’s central hitter, third baseman Gunner Henderson, and outfielder Kyle Starworth. Henderson was also named the strongest Rookie of the Year candidate before the start of the season.
