Seager of the Texas Rangers started as the second hitter and shortstop in the away game against Toronto on the 13th (Korean time). He contributed greatly to Texas’ 6-3 win by going 3-for-4 with one RBI, one walk, and two runs scored. In particular, he laid a stepping stone to the team’s victory by allowing two hits against Ryu Hyun-jin.
In his first at-bat in the top of the first inning, he was out on a ground ball to first base. In a full-count game, he hit Ryu Hyun-jin’s 90.3 mile per hour (about 145.3 km) four-seam fastball, but was unable to produce a hit. In his second at-bat in the top of the fourth inning, he recorded his team’s first hit and even scored a run. As the lead hitter, he targeted the first pitch with an 83.5 mile per hour cutter (approximately 134.4 km) and scored a heavy hit. He homered on follow-up hitter Robbie Grossman’s two-run home run.
Seager, who gave Ryu Hyun-jin the first hit and run, came to bat as the leadoff hitter in the top of the sixth inning. He hit a slow curveball and made a long hit. He missed the curve on the first pitch at 67.5 miles per hour (about 108.6 km). The 2nd and 3rd pitch changeups and four-seam fastballs were selected as balls. And on the fourth pitch, he hit a curve at 67.1 miles per hour (107.9 km), making a double to center field. And he scored when he came home on Joachim’s sacrifice hit.
After recording 2 hits and 2 runs against Ryu Hyun-jin, he hit a double again in his third at-bat in the 7th inning. He blasted a one-run double with two outs and two on base. He hit his 39th double of the season against Toronto’s third pitcher, Tim Mayza. He immediately hit a timely hit against the changed pitcher, making the score 5-0. He produced a shot that put a wedge in the game.
Seager made his big league debut with the Dodgers in 2015. He played for the Dodgers until 2021. He played with Ryu Hyun-jin in a Dodgers uniform from 2013 to 2019. Last year, as a member of Texas, his season batting average was only 0.245.
