Is it a 200-inning hangover for the second year in a row…Cy Young pitcher ‘crashes’ to 5.08 ERA in one year?

Last year’s National League (NL) unanimous Cy Young Award winner, right-hander Sandy Alcantara, 28, of the Miami Marlins, fell apart again.

Alcantara allowed five runs on 10 hits and two walks with six strikeouts in seven innings of work against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday (July 22) at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida.메이저놀이터

He pitched a long seventh inning, but gave up a five-run second inning. After giving up back-to-back doubles to Matt Chapman and Cavan Biggio to start the inning, Alcantara gave up singles to Santiago Espinal and Kevin Kiermaier, giving up four straight hits. He kept getting hit by everything from sliders, four-seam fastballs, sinkers, and changeups.

He got Tyler Heinemann to ground into a double play, but followed it up with a double to George Springer and a single to Whit Merrifield.해외안전놀이터 추천 He was pounded for five runs on six hits, including two doubles, in the second inning alone. He was able to get through the seventh inning without allowing another run, but it wasn’t enough to get the win. The five runs in the second inning were the difference in the loss. Alcantara took the loss as Miami fell to 3-6.

On the season, Alcantara is now 2-6 with a 5.08 ERA in 15 games (95⅔ innings). This is the sixth game in which he has allowed five or more runs. He’s had three 10-hit games, and he’s given up a lot of runs in a row. Alcantara, who debuted with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2017 before moving to Miami in 2018 and becoming a full-time starter in 2019, has a career ERA of 3.34. A sub-5 ERA is a career first.

With Alcantara out, Miami has lost two straight and is now 42-33. Toronto, which has won two straight, is 41-35. Toronto starter Kevin Gausman improved to 7-3 on the season, allowing three runs on eight hits with one walk and six strikeouts in six innings, lowering his ERA to 3.10. Matt Chapman, who hit his 10th wedge solo home run of the season in the eighth inning, went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI and a walk.
