Sweeper inning in an instant First win of the season… The left-handed lion that led Lotte in the fall 6 years ago is flying high as an ML sure-winner.

 Brooks Reilly (New York Mets), who led the Lotte Giants’ fall baseball game six years ago, has established himself as a top-ranked major league winner. 

Reilly appeared in relief in the 2023 Major League Baseball away game against the Minnesota Twins held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, 메이저놀이터USA on the 11th (Korean time) and earned a relief win with a perfect pitch with two strikeouts and no runs in one inning. It was the first win in 59 games of the season. 

Reilly took the mound in the 8th inning with the game tied 0-0. The pitching was skillful. After striking out Kyle Palmer, who appeared as a pinch hitter, on three pitches, he struck out Royce Lewis on a fly ball to center field on the first pitch, and struck out Max Kepler again on five pitches, ending the inning. The number of pitches is 9. Without a four-seam fastball, he silenced Minnesota’s cleanup trio by using only breaking balls such as a sinker, changeup, sweeper, and cutter. 

The Mets, riding on Reilly’s good pitching, finally broke the balance at 0 in the 9th inning. Leading off, Francisco Lindor’s double and Jeff McNeil’s bases on a bases-loaded base hit left the team with no outs and runners on first and second base. Pete Alonso only struck out after a missed swing, but DJ Stewart hit a two-run double and became the game-winning hit. Adam Ottavino, who came up after Reilly, finished the game without allowing a run in the 9th inning, and Reilly happily reported his first win of the season. It was a valuable relief that ended the Mets’ three-game losing streak.
