It was an interesting “Korean Derby.

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Dane Dunning allowed one run on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on Wednesday. He threw 97 pitches with a 1.67 ERA.

The Korean-born pitcher, who was born to a Korean mother, was matched up against a Korean-born hitter, Bae Ji-hwan. It was an interesting matchup between a Korean pitcher and a Korean hitter.

The result was a tie. In the first game of the second inning, Bae took a five-pitch slider on a 1-2 count for a double to right field, and in the second game of the fourth inning, Dunning induced a grounder to second base with runners on second and third.

먹튀검증 A third showdown in the sixth inning was not to be. In the sixth inning, Bae came up to bat with runners on first and second, but Texas manager Bruce Bochy came out and took the ball away after a brief conversation.

Dunning was not very sharp on the day. He left runners on base in every inning except the third, and had runners in scoring position in every inning except the third and fifth.

Eight of his 19 pitches were hard-hit, 95+ mph pitches, and he had two extra-base hits. The one he allowed to Brian Reynolds in the third inning was caught in the left fielder’s glove, but it was big enough to be a home run in 18 major league parks.

Still, he made a smart play to keep it to one run. The opposition helped him, too. With runners on first and third in the first inning, he got out of the jam with an infield single.

The right-hander, who got the start after Jacob deGrom went down with an injury, has been solid in his four starts in May, going five innings or more and allowing two runs or less in all four.
