Since athletic ability is superhuman, is it the same with resilience? Ronald Acuna Jr. (26, Atlanta Braves), who boasts a 10-year, $124 million (approximately 165.5 billion won) contract, played the game intact the day after he was replaced with a four-ball pitcher. He even managed to steal a base, although there were reports that it was not a major injury.
Acuna played메이저놀이터 as a leadoff in the second game of an away doubleheader against the New York Mets on the 2nd (hereinafter Korean time), and in the beginning of the first inning, Mets starting pitcher Tyler Megil’s 93.4 mile four-seam hit his left shoulder. He twisted his body momentarily, but could not avoid the sand dune. After that, Acuna could not move on the ground for about a minute, and was eventually replaced.
Acuna leads the national league as well as all major league steals with 13 stolen bases by the 2nd. He was two ahead of Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh Pirates, 11 stolen bases), who placed second in this category. Attention was focused on whether Bae Ji-hwan would have a chance to become the number one stealer if Akuna missed one or two games, but Akuna played without any problems.
An away game against the Miami Marlins on the 3rd. Acuna started as right fielder once and recorded 1 hit, 1 RBI, 1 walk and 1 base in 3 at-bats. He hit a mid-season double in the first inning, and after picking out a walk with no runners on two runs in the top of the sixth with a 3–0 lead, Matt Olsen stole second base at the plate. Stealing 14th base of the season.
This season, Acuna has been very active with 42 hits in 116 at-bats, a batting average of 0.362, 5 homers, 16 RBIs, 26 points, 14 stolen bases, and an OPS of 1.035 in 30 games. Not only is he first in stolen bases, he also ranks second in the National League batting average, second in on-base percentage (0.449), seventh in slugging percentage (0.589), and first in runs scored (42). He is, in a word, the best hitter in the National League.
Sports Illustrated said, “It was unclear to participate due to a shoulder bruise, but I unexpectedly completed a full somersault. At the same time, he did not let go of his hand at second base. If Akuna had gotten his hands off the bases, he would have been out because Miami shortstop John Bertie was able to tag.”
On the other hand, Bae Ji-hwan struck out as a pinch hitter in the away game against the Tampa Bay Rays that day. Steal 11 as it is. Tied for second in the National League with Jazz Cheesehome Junior (Miami Marlins). Cheesehome also failed to add a stolen base against Atlanta that day.
