Compared to Monday and Tuesday where there was very little activity by Mexican players (three) in the Major Leagues, on Wednesday, the National Legion did have an intense action in the 2021 MLB season, highlighting the third victory of the year for Victor González with the champion Los Angeles Dodgers. Six Aztec elements in total participated in the ‘Big Show’, here the breakdown:
The left-hander from Nayarit relieved Tony Gonsolin from the second inning and pitched for a space of one and a third without hitting or running and a strikeout, lowering his ERA to 2.14. He faced four batters from the Pittsburgh Pirates, where by the way Thursday he pitches Julio Urías at 11:35 a.m. Central Mexico time:
Another Mexican who showed off from the bullpen was the tapatío Humberto Castellanos with the Arizona Diamondbacks against the Oakland Athletics, at the Coliseum. The 23-year-old right-hander hung three zeros, allowing just one hit, striking out 3 batters, in exchange for two walks, continuing his ERA intact at 0.00.
In that same game, three batters faced, three strikeouts for Joakim Soria from Coahuila, who was intractable in his relief on Wednesday, reducing his ERA to 4.85.
At Target Field in Minnesota, good relief for Luis Cessa from Veracruz, who hung up two zeros, struck out an opponent and allowed two hits, reducing his percentage of earned runs to 2.84 with the New York Yankees.
For his part, as far as hitters are concerned, at Comerica Park in Michigan the first hit of the season was given for Isaac Paredes and it was a triple, this with the Detroit Tigers against the Seattle Mariners. The Sonoran is hitting .125 (8-1).
