A rookie pitcher who debuted in the big leagues allowed two homers on the first two pitches.

Lyon Richardson, who started as Cincinnati’s starting pitcher in the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League game between the Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals held at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 7th (Korean time), in the top of the first inning, Washington’s lead batters CJ Abrams and Reign Thomas was hit with a home run on each first pitch.

The home run distance hit by Abrams and Thomas was 246 meters. As Abrams hit the ball into the first seat section under the right field line, Thomas hit a home run over the center fence.메이저사이트

“As the leading hitter, I was waiting for a fastball, and it came in the middle and I made a good swing,” Abrams said after the game.

Washington coach Dave Martinez was pleased: “We got off to a good start. Two goals on two balls. They’re like catalysts for us. They’ve driven us consistently. They’ve done well for us all year.” .

Abrams had four hits in the series against Cincinnati, while Thomas went 7-for-13 with eight RBI.

“I don’t think I pitched that badly,” Richardson said. “I don’t want to hit a home run like that.”

Richardson became the losing pitcher, allowing 4 runs (4 earned) on 4 hits in 3 innings.
