Raise gains momentum from winning 10 innings to rematching Pirates

Article author:



After two weeks of slump, the Tampa Bay Rays need a boost and were backed by a bench from Harold Ramirez's trusted bat at the series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday.

Raise tries to gain momentum from Ramirez's walk-off hit when he opposes the Pirates on Saturday in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Tampa Bay rescuer Jason Adam has escaped from the beginning-and third, there is no confusion at the top of Friday's 10th inning. Ramirez got off the bench for a decisive hit with a 4-3 victory after Pittsburgh brought him into the infield with a third base victory.

Rays manager Kevin Cash praises Ramirez's approach of hitting .305 throughout the season, 7-15 (.467) in the role of pinch hitter. Said that.

"I'm lucky to have someone ready and ready in any situation," Cash said. "I'm glad he got in there and had a big turn at bat. It's not easy to start the game and get off the bench."

Five Rays pitchers Recorded the season's best 17 strikeouts, and starter Jeffrey Springs recorded his career's best 9 times in 6 innings. The staff also did not issue more than 10 innings of walks.

Tampa Bay managed only 7 hits (all singles), but Josh Lowe and Vidal Bruhan both stolen bases and scored as a result.

Saturday's starting pitcher Corey Kluber (3-4, 3.46 ERA) calmed down and produced solid numbers, with opponents hitting him .244. Right-handed players are 2-2 and ERA is 2.35 starting June 4th.

On July 23, 2018, at the start of his solo career with Pittsburgh, Kluber allowed 9 hits and 7 runs (3 wins) in 4 innings.

He will probably have to duel with Pirates shortstop Oneil Cruz.

Cruz, who shows off his amazing play and has an immediate influence, is probably the next breakout star in the baseball world.

At 6'7, the same height as the New York Yankees Slugger Aaron Judge, Cruz has a wide range of skills.

On Monday, the tallest shortstop in Major League Baseball history excited home spectators on the night of four RBIs in their season debut. He beat Pittsburgh 12 to 1 against the Chicago Cubs and 2 to 5.

Cruz has established several other milestones in the contest. He scored the highest in the majors this year with a throw by infielder (96.7 mph), the most hit ball by the 2022 pirates (112.9 mph), and three fastest sprint times by Pittsburgh players this season.

It's not bad for a 23-year-old player to play in his third major match.

"I think O'Neill's only thing is that he can have a lot of influence on the game," Pirates Skipper Derek Shelton said on Friday about Cruz, who hit 2-4. rice field.

In the middle of his first six games (two games last season), the Dominican elite outlook set the longest RBI streak record for starting a pirate career. The streak ended on Friday.

Pirates right-handed JT Brubaker (1-7, 4.11 ERA) will make his first ever start against Tampa Bay on Saturday.

On four outings in June, Bull Baker was 1-3, ERA was 4.03, and the batter hit him .280. However, he got off to a great start of his season when he defeated the Cubs 12-1 and released six shutout innings.
