Arizona Diamondbacks Merrill Kelly (35) struggled with the Dodgers’ hard hitting line in his second appearance of the season.
Kelly started the game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA on the 7th (Korean time) and recorded 6 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts and 4 runs in 5⅔ innings.
Kelly, who recorded a three-way offense in the first inning, walked leadoff hitter Max Muncy in the second inning. JD Martinez and David Peralta both caught them with fly balls, but James Outman and Chris Taylor gave them the first run on consecutive hits.
Kelly caught leadoff hitter Mookie Betts with a fly ball in the third inning, but was hit by Freddie Freeman, and right fielder Jake McCarthy’s error allowed him to advance to second base. After walking Will Smith, Kelly induced Muncy to ground the first baseman. It was a batting ball that could lead to double play, but he even gave up a run when shortstop Geraldo Ferdomo made a throwing error. Martinez then hit a RBI double, widening the score to 0-3.
Kelly, who found stability with a three-way exit in the fourth inning, walked lead batter Jason Heyward in the fifth, but struck out Betts and induced Freeman to double-strike, ending the inning without allowing a run. However, in the 6th inning, lead hitter Will Smith hit a double, putting him in danger again. Muncy struck out, but Martinez walked, and after Peralta’s base-run, Outman hit a one-run timely hit and was demolished. Kyle Nelson, who came on the mound afterwards, finished the inning without allowing a run, so Kelly’s runs did not increase. 바카라사이트
