Power to the Cubs PS competition… ‘Final Four’ Tuchman, KBO reverse run myth continues

Posted bycollagennewtree@gmail.com Posted onAugust 9, 2023 Comments0

Chicago Cubs outfielder Mike Tuckman (33) has done it again.

Tuchman started as the first hitter in right field against the New York Mets in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at Citi Field in Flushing, New York, USA on the 9th (Korean time).

In the first at-bat in the top of the first inning, Tuchman took the leadoff and calmly picked off starting Carlos Carrasco’s ball and got a walk. After two outs in the top of the 3rd inning, the second at-bat, he completed a multi-on-base run by knocking out a right-handed hit.

The highlight was after one shot in the top of the 8th inning when the 2-2 tight match continued. He pushed relief pitcher Drew Smith’s four-seam fastball and hit a solo home run (Season 7) that went over the left fence. The ball flew 392 feet (about 119.4 m) at a launch angle of 33 degrees and a speed of 99.5 miles (about 160.1 km) per hour.

The Cubs beat the Mets 3-2 thanks to Tuchman’s home run. Tuchman recorded the final shot and further strengthened the team’s race for a postseason berth.

Tuckman, who played for the Hanwha Eagles in the KBO League last year, returned to work in the major leagues wearing a Cubs uniform after his contract was canceled. As of the 9th, his performance in 65 games was 0.284 (61 hits in 215 bats), 7 homers, 41 RBIs, OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) 0.817. So far, among team fielders with more than 200 plate appearances, he is showing outstanding performance within the team, ranking second in batting average, on-base percentage, and fifth in slugging percentage.

He also stands out on defense. He mainly plays as a center fielder, but also plays right and left fielders, playing all positions in the outfield and adding variety to the lineup. He even rescued the team from a crisis several times, such as stealing an opponent’s home run in front of the fence.

In particular, Tuchman played the most 34 games as the team’s leadoff, recording a batting average of 0.303 (44 hits in 145 at-bats), 7 homers, 30 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.376 and a slugging percentage of 0.517. He is invigorating the lineup by not only getting on base, but also producing points directly when necessary. He is from the KBO League and is writing another reverse export myth.

The Cubs currently have a record of 59 wins and 55 losses (0.518 win rate) in the current season, and are in third place in the wild card, which is the last line to advance to the postseason. After that, fierce ranking fights are unfolding, such as the Cincinnati Reds (60-56/Odds 0.517), Miami Marlins (59-56/Odds 0.513), and Arizona Diamondbacks (57-57/Odds 0.500). Tuchman’s performance, including hitting the final shot, is helping the Cubs compete in the postseason.
