The opening winning streak of the Tampa Bay Rays has increased to ’13’. It is the most tied record in MLB history.
Tampa Bay won a 9-3 come-from-behind victory against the 2023 Major League Boston Red Sox held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA on the 14th (hereinafter Korean time).
With this, Tampa Bay, which ran 13 consecutive wins in the opening season,먹튀검증 tied the record for the most consecutive wins in the major leagues since 1900. The 1982 Atlanta Braves and the 1987 Milwaukee Brewers have won 13 straight games.
In 1884, the Union Association St. Louis Maroons recorded up to 20 consecutive wins, but at that time it was not recognized as an official major league record, not the current two-league system.
On this day, the starting pitcher was replaced due to injury and won the game. Left-hander starter Jeffrey Springs pitched well with 1 hit (1 home run) in 3 innings, 5 strikeouts and 1 run, but was replaced after 41 pitches due to ulnar neuritis in his left arm. In the 4th and 5th innings, the bullpen gave 1 point each and took the lead to 1-3.
However, in the 5th inning alone, 6 hits, a walk and 1 hit ball were added to score 7 points, turning the tide of the game at once. Randy Arozarena succeeded in turning the ball around 4-3 with a timely hit, and Manuel Margo succeeded in squeezing with an exquisite surprise bunt to the side of the pitcher in the 2nd out with a ball hit by Wander Franco.
Then, Harold Ramirez’s sweeping three RBIs and doubles in the left field sealed the game. Ramirez went 4 at-bats with 3 hits and 3 RBIs, and Brandon Lowe played an active role as an RBI with 2 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats, including his 5th home run of the season. Third pitcher Kevin Kelly won with 2 hits, 1 walk and 1 run in 2⅔ innings, and Braden Bristow, who came up in the 7th inning, made a save in his big league debut with 3 innings, no hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts and no runs.
Tampa Bay will challenge the major league’s first 14 consecutive wins in an away game against the Toronto Blue Jays on the 15th. Tampa Bay has won both games since the opening and has Drew Rasmussen, who is scoreless in 13 innings, as the starting pitcher. Toronto will start Jose Berrios, who has been sluggish with an average ERA of 11.17 with 2 losses in 2 games.
