10-run nightmare: ‘Perfect game’ of dreams
Domingo Hermann (31, New York Yankees) became the protagonist of the 24th ‘Perfect Game’ in Major League Baseball (MLB) history.
Hermann started in the away game in Oakland on the 29th, where the Yankees won 11-0, and took 27 opponent batters with 10 fly balls, 9 strikeouts, and 8 ground balls, not allowing a single base. It has been 10 years, 10 months and 13 days (3969 days) since Felix Hernandez (37, then Seattle) on August 16, 2012 that a perfect game came out in MLB.
“His uncle passed away two days ago,” said Hermann, the fourth Yankees pitcher and the first from the Dominican Republic to record a perfect pitch. He cried a lot in the clubhouse yesterday too. I think my deceased uncle was with me throughout the game. Thanks to that, every play was literally perfect. I want to dedicate today’s match to my uncle.”
Hermann, who made his MLB debut in 2017, is a “yes and that” pitcher with a career record of 30 wins and 26 losses and an ERA of 4.48 before this game. He went 4-5 this year and had an ERA of 5.10. On May 18, 1998, David Wells (60, Yankees at the time) and Hermann succeeded in a perfect game with a season ERA over 5.00. Wells had a 5.23 ERA at the time.온라인바카라
Hermann’s grades have been worse lately. Even in the home game on the 23rd, which was the previous mound, he gave up 10 runs (8 earned runs) in 3 1/3 innings against Seattle, and then came down from the mound while being booed by the fans. Hermann is the first time in MLB history that a pitcher who recorded more than 8 earned runs in the previous pitch has succeeded in a perfect game.
