Arizona closer Blon summons ‘BK’ from 22 years ago… “Fans will remember…”

“No one will associate it with that time.”

The Arizona Diamondbacks lost 5-6 in Game 1 of the 2023 Major League World Series against the Texas Rangers held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, USA on the 28th (Korean time)온라인카지노.

Arizona led 5-3 until the bottom of the 9th inning. ‘Closer’ Paul Seawald went on the mound to end the game. Before today’s game, SeaWorld had pitched in 8 fall baseball games this season, not allowing a single run and recording 6 saves. He set the record for the most saves in the postseason in Arizona franchise history, surpassing Byung-Hyun Kim, who had 3 saves during the 2001 postseason.

However, this day’s game went differently than Arizona expected. SeaWorld allowed a walk to leadoff hitter Leody Taveras. He took a breather by striking out Marcus Semien, but Corey Seager hit a tying two-run home run. Seager hit a 93.6 mile (approximately 150 km/h) four-seam fastball on the first pitch and went over the right fence. SeaWorld recorded its first blown save this postseason.

In the end, the game went into overtime. And in the bottom of the 11th inning, Adolis Garcia hit a walk-off home run off Miguel Castro, giving Texas the first game.

Byeong-Hyun Kim was summoned to SeaWorld’s Blon Save 22 years ago. Major League Baseball’s official website ‘’ said, “Until Garcia’s walk-off home run, Arizona’s most notable overtime loss came in Games 4 and 5 of the 2001 World Series against the New York Yankees,” adding, “Arizona fans were 10 in Game 4. “I remember Kim Byung-hyun’s series of infamous appearances, including allowing a walk-off home run to Derek Jeter in the inning and recording a blown save in Game 5,” he said.

At that time, Arizona lost games 4 and 5 to the Yankees, leading the series to 2 wins and 3 losses. However, they won the 6th game with a score of 15-2, and in the 7th game, a winner-takes-all game, they came back from a 1-2 deficit in the bottom of the 9th inning to win their first championship.

Arizona was unable to advance to the World Series after that, but advanced to the World Series for the first time in 22 years.

When asked about a similar situation 22 years ago, coach Torrey Lovullo said, “I don’t think our players are old enough to remember what happened back then.” This meant that there were many young players.

“I know we have some really great fans. They probably remember that, but I don’t think anyone is connecting the dots.”
