Angels club ‘youngest no-heater’ Detmers
Los Angeles Angels left-hander Reid Detmers (23), who achieved no-hitter, won the Major League Baseball (MLB) Player of the Week award.
The MLB Secretariat announced on the 17th (Korea Standard Time) that it has selected Detmers as the “player of the week” in the second week of May of the American League (AL).
In a home game against the Tampa Bay Rays on the 11th, Detmers gave up only one walk until the ninth inning, leading the team to a 12-0 victory with two strikeouts and no runs. Detmers was the 12th and youngest player in the club’s history (born August 1999) to achieve a no-hitter.
Detmers, who received the first round nomination from the Angels in the 2020 rookie draft, made his high-speed debut in the big leagues last year, his second year as a member. This year, five innings were the longest innings pitched in the previous five starts, but he met Tampa Bay and became the main character of the milestone with 108 balls.
Detmers won a complete victory against veteran Corey Kluber (three innings, 11 hits and eight runs) who achieved no-hitter on May 20 last year. Otani Shohei, who played as the third designated hitter, fired in support of the Detmers victory with two hits and one run in five at-bats. Angels slugger Mike Trout played in the second batting order with three hits, one walk, and three RBIs.
In particular, Trout was tied for second place in the Major League with nine home runs in the season by operating two home runs in the second and eighth innings. Bryce Harper (30), the leading hitter of the Philadelphia Phillies, was selected in the National League (NL). According to local media such as MLB Dotcom and ESPN, Harper was diagnosed with a torn ligament in his right elbow on the 13th and was unable to throw the ball for four weeks.
However, Harper played as a designated hitter instead of being on the injured list because there was no big problem with his swing, and he played as the third designated hitter in an away game against the LA Dodgers and played well with two hits, one home run, and three RBIs in four at-bats. Harper batted .608 (14 hits in 23 at-bats) with three home runs and eight RBIs in six games. It is the seventh time Harper has won the Player of the Week award. 토토추천
