HOF reservation Scherzer is scared too The strongest killer is in Korea not MLB
Max Scherzer (37, LA Dodgers) was the same when he struck out his first strikeout or his 3,000th career strikeout. He still threw his soul and was still aggressive. That’s how the legend was made.
Scherzer started the game against San Diego at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 13th (Korea Standard Time) and led his team to an 8-0 victory with one hit, four walks, nine strikeouts, and no runs in eight innings. It is a perfect pitch with six wins and a 0.88 ERA in eight games since the Dodgers transfer. The Dodgers won all eight games in which Scherzer took the mound.
It was the 3,000 strikeouts in his career that drew more attention than the perfect game. Scherzer, who pushed San Diego hitters with fierce momentum from the start of the game, boosted his momentum by making his third flawless inning (one inning, nine pitches, three strikeouts) in the second inning. In the fifth inning, Eric Hosmer struck out and proudly climbed to the long-awaited 3,000 strikeouts.
Scherzer, who made his debut in 2008, achieved 1,000 strikeouts in August 2013, and surpassed 2,000 strikeouts in June 2017. He then went down in history as the 19th player in MLB history to strike out 3,000. In terms of innings, he carved 3,000K in the second-lowest inning after Randy Johnson.
Scherzer is also the seventh player to win more than three Cy Young Awards at the same time with 3,000 strikeouts. This is a record that only a few legendary players such as Greg Maddox, Randy Johnson, and Pedro Martinez have. This is why Scherzer’s entry into the Hall of Fame is virtually booked with 3,000 strikeouts.
Then, who was the player who was most victimized by the gold tower? Adam Dunn struck out a total of 24 times by Scherzer, ranking first in the category, and Asrubal Cabrera second with 21. Manny Machado, who faced Scherzer on the same day, is in third place with 19 strikeouts. If Scherzer plays for the Dodgers next year, there is a possibility that Machado will rise to the top of the category. Machado was weak with a career Scherzer batting average of 0.136.
Including these three, a total of 52 players have struck out by Scherzer more than 10 times in their career. Mike Trout also struck out 10 times. On the contrary, however, there was a player who was particularly strong for Scherzer. This player is not playing in the Major League (MLB) right now. Choo Shin-soo (39, SSG), who is playing in the KBO League.
Only six batters have a batting average of more than 0.500 against Scherzer in their career. Choo Shin-soo is the best among them. Choo Shin-soo faced Scherzer 30 times in his career, recording a batting average of 0.583 (14 hits in 24 at-bats), three home runs, six RBIs and six walks. On the other hand, he struck out only four times. Scherzer’s career OPS is 1.792, a phenomenal level 토토추천
Jacob Elsbury also performed well with a career batting average of 0.583 (7 hits in 12 at-bats), but he is slightly lower than Choo Shin-soo in OPS (1.625).
Adam Jones, Michael Conphoto, and Adam Dunn each recorded the most home runs against Scherzer. Dunn struck out a lot, but he also hit a lot of home runs. The player who chose to walk the most against this strikeout machine walked to Alex Gordon 10 times.
