‘From Lotte’ MLB Mets Rayleigh, 1 save and 1 hold per day

Appeared in both doubleheaders…He also showed fantastic defense.

(Seoul = Yonhap News) Correspondent Lee Dae-ho = New York Mets left-handed bullpen pitcher Brooks Reilly (35), who is writing one of the most successful players who returned to the big leagues after passing through the KBO, set a new record by making one hold and one save per day.

He took the mound in both the first and second games of the doubleheader and kept the team victorious.

Reilly took the mound in the 7th inning with the team leading 2-0 in the first leg of the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) Cleveland Guardians doubleheader held at Citi Field in New York, New York on the 22nd (Korean time).

Rayleigh, who took over the mound from Max Scherzer, cleared the 7th inning with three batters and collected his 10th hold of the season.

This is a record tied for third in the major league hold category.

The Mets allowed a turnaround from 3-0 to 3-4 at the beginning of the 8th inning after Reilly came off the mound, but in the bottom of the 8th, Starling Marte’s 2-run homer came back and won 5-4.

Game 2, in which Justin Verlander from the Mets and Shane Bieber from Cleveland each started, was an even more breathtaking battle.

Verlander endured with 3 hits (1 home run), 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 8 innings, and Beaver also faced off with 7 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and 2 runs in 8 innings.

According to MLB.com, this is the first time that starting pitchers from both teams have pitched at least eight innings in “Sunday Night Baseball,” which is broadcast live across the United States by setting one game every Sunday based on the local date.

With a 2-1 lead, the Mets put Rayleigh on the mound to preserve the win.

Rayleigh caught the first batter, Stephen Kwan, with a pitcher’s ground ball, then gave a hit ball to Ahmed Rosario, but induced a double hit from Jose Ramirez to secure the victory.

In particular, he quickly chased Kwan’s surprise bunt to first base and even showed Hosobi, who accurately threw to first baseman Pete Alonso with a glove toss.

Rayleigh, who defended the team’s 2-1 victory, harvested his first save of the season, and his record this season was 1 win, 10 holds, 1 save, and an ERA of 3.52.

After the game, Reilly said, “Thank you to manager Buck Showalter (who appointed me),” and said, “It’s something I did over 1,000 times in spring camp.”

Rayleigh is a pitcher who played for the Lotte Giants for five seasons from 2015 to 2019 and achieved a career record of 48 wins and 53 losses with an ERA of 4.13.

In the KBO League, he was an ‘Inning Eater’ who played a total of 910⅔ innings in 5 seasons, but is active as a bullpen pitcher in the big leagues.
