The Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox for the second consecutive time. Miss Zuru, an old colleague, played a decisive role.
Toronto won an away game 5-4 against Boston held at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts on the 6th (Korean time).
It was a game where the tension could not be let go until the last minute of the ninth inning. With a 5-3 lead, Eric Swanson allowed three hits in a row and let the score go 5-4.
Connor Wong then hit a well-hit ball in the left-middle direction. This ball was caught by center fielder Kevin Kiermeier in front of the left-middle wall called ‘Green Monster’.
The problem is that Liz Maguire, who was on second base, thought it was a home run and went around third base to the home run. Maguire acted as if a walk-off home run had been hit, raising his hand the moment the batted ball reached. And as a result of the second base gwiru being late, the game ended as it was connected to a double hit.
As a result, Maguire gave his home team Toronto a win.메이저놀이터
In an interview with local media outlets such as ‘MLB.com’, Boston manager Alex Cora said, “Almost everyone on the team thought it was a home run,” referring to Maguire’s baserunning mistake as a mistake for the entire team.
Toronto ran away 3-0 with Brandon Belt’s solo homer, Alejandro Kirk’s double, and Dalton Basho’s hit in the third inning.
Raphael Devers’ three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning tied the score at 3-3, but in the top of the sixth, the belt ran away again with a timely hit. In the ninth inning, Kiermeyer’s timely hit allowed one more run to run away.
Starter Jose Berrios recorded his ninth win of the season with 6 hits, 1 home run, 6 strikeouts and 3 runs in 5 2/3 innings.
Meanwhile, Boston excluded outfielder Alex Verdugo from the game for no particular reason. MLB.com reported that Verdugo was excluded as a disciplinary measure because he did not go to work on time that day.
