Japan’s ‘97.2 billion won’ man Senga, 2 innings and 1 run… Maximum speed of 158 km

Senga Godai successfully completed his first major league debut.

On the 6th (Korean time), Senga played as a starting pitcher in the 2023 exhibition game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter, Florida, USA, recording 2 innings, 1 run, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts.

From the start of the first inning, Senga walked two batters in a row and showed an uneasy pitching, but escaped the crisis by handling St. Louis center hitters Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado with consecutive hits.

Damansenga gave up his first run when he homered off Tres Barrera with two outs and no runners in the second inning for a 4–0 lead. 토토사이트

On this day, Senga’s highest speed came out to 98.6 miles per hour (about 158.6 km), and he checked the four-seam fastball, cutter, slider, and curve ball. He did not throw a known forkball as his main weapon.

Earlier, he signed a five-year, $75 million (approximately 97.2 billion won) super-large contract with the New York Mets ahead of the 2023 season.

Originally, Senga was scheduled to join the Japanese national team for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), but since it was his debut season in the United States, he announced that he would not participate in order to adapt.

Also, the New York Mets won 7-1 against St. Louis thanks to Senga’s good pitching.
