The Washington Nationals, who became the victim of the New York Yankees’ 9-game losing streak, are about to lose outfielder Stone Garrett (28).
Washington lost the New York Yankees away game 1-9 at Yankee Stadium in New York, USA on the 24th (Korean time). The Yankees, who had lost 9 games in a row, could have lost 10 games in a row for the first time in 110 years since 1913 if they lost this game, but they stopped in front of a disgraceful record. Washington, whose two consecutive victories were suspended, remained at the bottom of the Eastern Division in the National League (NL) with 58 wins and 69 losses (0.457 win rate). The ride against the New York Mets (59-69), fourth in the district, is 0.5 games.
As painful as the result was the ‘injury’. On this day, Garrett, who started as the 6th hitter and right fielder, collapsed in the course of defending in the 7th inning. He hit his left leg on a fence while chasing DJ LeMay Hughes’ home run, but was unable to get up for a while due to excruciating pain. After checking the trainer, the injured part was fixed, and soon after, he left the ground with a baseball cart. According to MASN, a local media outlet, Washington coach Dave Martinez said, “I think we’ll have to wait for the results of X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to know the exact extent of the injury.”안전놀이터
Garrett is an outfielder in his second year in the big leagues. He appeared in 89 games this season and had a batting average of 0.269 (63 hits in 234 at-bats) with 9 homers and 26 RBIs. He had a combined OPS of on-base percentage (0.343) and slugging percentage (0.457) of 0.800. He brought a new wind to the team in ball and defense. “Garrett is one of my favorite players in the clubhouse,” Martinez said. “He’s an incredible player on and off the pitch. I hope he’ll be okay with the good news and forget about this.”
