Senga took the mound as a starting pitcher in the 2023 Major League Baseball away game against the Miami Marlins held at Londipo Park in Miami, Florida on the 21st (Korean time) and recorded his 12th win of the season with 7 hits (1 home run), 3 strikeouts, 2 walks, and 2 runs in 6 innings ( 7th loss) was achieved. The Mets, led by Senga, who recorded his 16th quality start of the season, won 8-3 and sprinkled red pepper powder on Miami, which was busy.
Although Senga recorded only three strikeouts, which is his specialty, on this day, he showed off his crisis management skills and succeeded in making eight consecutive quality starts. Senga, who walked Miami’s leadoff hitter Jorge Solaire in the bottom of the first inning after a full-count game, finished the inning without further trouble with a ground ball, an infield fly ball, and a fly ball to left field.
In the bottom of the second inning, Senga got the first two outs with a fly ball to center field and a strikeout, and then faced a scoring crisis with two outs and first and second bases due to a walk and a hit. However, he treated Jacob Starling with a fly ball to center field and ended the second inning without allowing any runs. In the bottom of the third inning, leadoff hitter Solaire had a hit, but he easily closed out the inning with two fly balls and a ground ball.
Senga’s first run came in the fourth inning. Senga, who was hit by leadoff batter Brian De La Cruz in the bottom of the fourth inning, sent a runner to second base with a wild pitch, putting himself in danger of reaching second base with no outs. While the next batter, Jesus Sanchez, was grounded out, the runner advanced to third base, and Garret Hampson’s sacrifice fly resulted in Senga’s first run. Senga allowed a hit by John Berti and a stolen base, putting him in danger again with two outs and two on base, but he threw his signature ghost forkball against Starling and struck out a missed swing to end the fourth inning.
Senga faced a crisis in the 5th inning as well. Senga, who allowed a hit to leadoff hitter Solaire in the bottom of the fifth inning, also allowed a hit to right field to the next hitter, Jazz Chisholm Jr. The runner on first base headed toward third base, and the batter runner boldly ran all the way to second base. As soon as Mets right fielder Jeff McNeil caught the ball, he spun around and threw, and Francisco Lindor, who accurately delivered the ball, connected to second base and scored an out.
In the ensuing crisis with one out and third base on base, Senga once again received help from McNeil. Xavier Edwards’ batted ball was caught by right fielder McNeil, and third base runner Solaire tagged up and ran toward home. McNeil’s quick and accurate throw arrived home with a one-bound, catching Solair, the runner on third base, and Senga finished the fifth inning without allowing any additional runs.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, with the Mets ahead 4-1, Senga returned to the mound. Facing leadoff hitter Josh Bell, Senga allowed a solo shot after being hit by a 93.6 mile per hour (approximately 150.6 km) four-seam fastball on the 5th pitch at a disadvantageous count of 3-1. However, he was no longer shaken and finished the 6th inning with a ground ball, a fly ball, and a strikeout. The number of pitches was exactly 100.
The Mets’ batting line succeeded in scoring in four consecutive innings, including the 6th (1 run), 7th (2 runs), 8th (1 run), and 9th (1 run) innings, and the bullpen allowed 1 run in the remaining 3 innings, putting them at 8-8. Won by 3. Senga, who succeeded in getting into the 2-point range by lowering his ERA to 2.95 in his last appearance, saw his ERA rise slightly this season to 2.96. However, the Chicago Cubs’ Justin Steele, who appeared on the mound on the same day, gave up 6 runs in 3 innings, causing his ERA to skyrocket (2.73 → 3.00), and Senga rose to second place in the NL in ERA (1st place, Blake Snell of the San Diego Padres, 2.33).
Senga, who signed a five-year, $75 million (approximately KRW 100.4 billion) contract with the Mets ahead of this season and challenged the Major League, has had a soft landing by recording double-digit wins (12 wins) and a 2-point ERA (2.96) since his first year of debut. was a great success. Senga, who recorded 194 strikeouts in 161 ⅓ innings in 28 games and is on the verge of conquering the 200-strikeout milestone, is having a successful first season in the big leagues, including being mentioned as a Cy Young Award and Rookie of the Year candidate.
