“Dodgers Prospect” Jackson 4 innings in Big League debut with 5K no runs
LA Dodgers’ right-hander Andre Jackson (25), who made his debut in the big league, showed off his scoreless pitching.
Jackson took the mound as the team’s second pitcher in a home game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 16th, recording two hits, five strikeouts, and four walks in four innings.
Jackson, who received Dodgers’ 12th round nomination in the 2017 draft, was called by the Big League after recording 5 wins, 2 losses and an ERA of 3.28.
Jackson, who took the mound in the top of the second inning following starter Justin Bruhl, caught leadoff hitter Ben Gamel with a left fielder fly ball at the first pitch.
He then gave Jacob Starlings a walk and Gregory Polanco a right-handed hit, but he struck out Rodolfo Castro. Jackson, who was on the verge of losing a run with two outs and two to three bases in a match against Steven Bront, finished his first inning in the big league with a grounder on second base.
Jackson struck out Park Hyo-joon, the first batter in the top of the third inning, allowed Brian Reynolds a heavy hit after hitting Kebrien Hayes on a straight walk. Hayes struck out Colin Moran after running to third base and ended the inning.
Jackson struck out Gamel in the top of the fourth inning, struck out Stallings in the middle field, and struck out Polanco for the first time.
Jackson, who also took the mound in the top of the fifth inning, allowed leadoff hitter Castro to walk to base and send him a bunt to Brault.
He caught Park Hyo-joon as a left fielder, but allowed Heize to walk. However, Reynolds was treated as a right fielder and did not lose a point.
Jackson replaced Alex Bessia in the top of the sixth inning and finished pitching the day. A total of 71 balls were thrown (39 strikes).
Jackson also left a unique record. Baseball statistics company “Stats by Stats” said that Jackson was the first player to strike out more than five, walk more than four, and scoreless in his big league debut as a relief pitcher in modern baseball.토토사이트
