Even in the minor leagues, the excitement for ‘fall baseball’ is high.
While the Major League is competing for the postseason, the postseason has begun in the lower levels of the minor leagues, Low Single A and Upper Single A.토토사이트
On the 16th (Korean time), Game 3 of the Top Single-A Midwest League Division Series, a match between the Fort Wayne Tin Caps (San Diego Padres) and the Great Lakes Loons (LA Dodgers), was held at Doe Diamond in Midland, Michigan, USA.
Great Lakes won the game today, 2-1, and advanced to the Midwest League Championship Series with a series record of 2 wins and 1 loss.
If you think that the atmosphere will be lukewarm just because it is the minor league postseason, you are mistaken.
Right-hander Choi Hyun-il, who plays for Great Lakes, said, “The atmosphere is different from the regular season. “It’s either win or die,” he said, conveying the postseason atmosphere.
In the corner of the hallway he pointed to with his hand, there was a pile of plastic. This is the plastic curtain that was put up during the champagne party at the clubhouse. Celebrating victory is no different from the major leagues.
On this day, Great Lakes’ No. 1 Dodgers prospect, Dalton Rushing, led the team with 2 hits and 1 RBI in 4 at-bats.
Choi Hyun-il said, “He’s good. He is a no-nonsense player. If I were to play against him, he would be a hitter who wouldn’t throw a fastball. He spoke highly of his colleague, saying, “He is also good at pitch calling.”
On the mound, starting pitcher Jared Carros pitched 5 innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 walk, striking out 6, and allowing no runs.
Karros is the son of Eric Karros, Chan-ho Park’s teammate during his Dodgers days. He was drafted by the Dodgers in the 16th round of the 2022 draft. He is pursuing his dream of becoming a big leaguer at the team his father played for.
Great Lakes will play the championship series with the Cedar Rapids Colonels (Minnesota Twins affiliate) starting on the 18th, two days later. The series progresses in a sampan style.
Choi Hyun-il will be the starter in the first game. He expressed his desire to win, saying, “Seeing them popping the champagne like this today, it would be really nice to win two more games and win.”
