Broadly speaking, 6 innings and 2 runs, a quality start. Still, San Diego Padres starter Blake Snell couldn’t hide his disappointment.
Snell looked back on his appearance (4 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts, 2 runs in 6 innings) in an interview after losing 2-4 to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 13th (Korean time). .
Although he blocked the Dodgers batting line with 2 runs until the 6th inning, he expressed regret about the game, saying, “I feel despair because I think I made the game difficult for myself.”

It was a sad day for walks. After letting the first two batters walk in a row in the 3rd inning, he allowed Freddie Freeman a double through the middle right and allowed 2 runs.메이저놀이터
It was a shame to allow a goal to break the 0-0 balance. The team tied the score 2-2 with Kim Ha-sung’s double in the 7th inning, but Tim Hill allowed a back-to-back home run in the bottom of the 7th inning and lost 2-4.
He said, “I know that the opponent has a good batting line and talented hitters. Still, I expect more from myself.”
He struggled by throwing 101 balls until the 6th inning, saying, “Of course, the quality start is great. But he needs to be more aggressive. He has to find a way to get the ball into the strike zone, stay in that zone, and make the opponent swing.”
On the day, Snell threw a four-seam fastball averaging 94.9 mph (48 percent), an 86.9 mph changeup (27 percent), an 89 mph slider (16 percent) and an 81.7 mph curveball (10 percent).
He allowed 18 batted balls, but only five hard hits and one tight hit. A total of 24 balls passed through the strike zone or induced a miss.
Coach Bob Melvin praised the starter’s pitching, saying, “It was pretty good.” “In a situation where the bullpen was consumed a lot, the starter needed to throw 6 innings. It was really good that the starter came out and gave up 2 runs until the 6th inning,” he praised Snell.
Snell expressed satisfaction with the pitch, saying, “Looking at the type of pitch, the movements of all four pitches were good,” but emphasized the need to refine the pitch, saying, “I need to do better.”
