Ryan Mountcastle of the Baltimore Orioles of the American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) has put his name on franchise history.
In a game against the Oakland Athletics held at Oriole Park in Baltimore, Maryland, USA on the 12th (hereinafter Korean time), Mount Castle recorded 3 hits in 4 at-bats, including two home runs, and swept 9 RBIs alone.
The 9 RBIs in one game is the most tied record in Baltimore club history.
Jim Gentil in 1961 and Eddie Murray in 1985 recorded 9 RBIs in one game.
The record for most RBIs in a single game in the majors is 12, set by Jim Bottomley in 1924 and Mark Wheaton in 1993.
Mountcastle, who started as the third batter and first baseman that day, hit an outfield sacrifice fly with one out and third baseman to make it 1-1 in the bottom of the first inning, which was trailing 0-1.
In the bottom of the 3rd inning, when Baltimore was behind 1-2 again, he scored a second RBI with a heavy hit from 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases.
After the middle of the game, Mountcastle’s long hit exploded.
In the bottom of the 5th inning, with Baltimore trailing by 3-7, he fired a 3-run homer that went over the fence in his third at-bat from first and second base, sparking the pursuit.
In the bottom of the 6th inning, when the score was tied 7-7, Mountcastle stopped shorting on a ground ball from the shortstop, but in the bottom of the 7th inning, in the 5th at-bat, Mountcastle started a home run again.
Baltimore reversed by 8-7, and Oakland’s bench sent Adley Ruchmyeon as an intentional ball in the 2nd, 2nd and 3rd bases, and faced Mount Castle. 토토사이트
However, Mountcastle, feeling good about hitting, hit Oakland’s bullpen pitcher Danny Jimenez with a ball count of 2-1 on the 4th pitch, 84.9 miles (approximately 137 km) of slider, and hit a home run that went over the left fence.
Baltimore ran away 12-7 with this one shot and was confident of victory.
On the other hand, Oakland suffered a disappointing come-from-behind defeat 8-12 due to coach Mark Cotsay’s poor decision.
Mountcastle said after the game: “It is a great honor to be named alongside two of the greatest players in the club’s history.”
