On the 5th at-bat of the 8th inning, which was met with multiple hits, not a single strike was made.
Yankees – Pirates (22nd Japan Time, New York)
Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge will take part in the Pirates’ home game on the 21st (Japan time on the 22nd) as the “#1 right wing.” While the 61st home run should tie the league record, there was a big boo when it was a game-saving walk that could have avoided the game in the 8th inning. As soon as the pinch runner was dispatched, the fans all got up at once.
In the first batting turn, he hit a hard double to the left wing line. On 3rd at bat of the 5th inning, he hit a double on the left wing and was 5th at bat with 1 out and 2nd base in the 8th inning, which was met with a multi-hit. Three consecutive games were expected, but he walked without a single strike. When the pinch runner was sent off after walking to first base, many fans left their seats.
While MVP’s battle with Angels pitcher Shohei Otani is extremely fierce, the batting doesn’t stop even in the latter stages of the season. On 18 (19), he fired two shots against the Brasseurs, and on 20 (21), against the Pirates, he was at the 60th mark of the season.
