“ML’s youngest multi-homer in history”…SD, ‘Candidate for Rookie of the Year’ Meryl’s walk-off shot to come from behind to win

Kim Ha-sung’s team, San Diego, came from behind to win 5-4 with Jackson Merrill (21)’s walk-off home run at the 2024 ML Oakland at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on the 13th (Korea time).

Merrill, who was drafted as the first pick by the San Diego Padres in 2021, is a rookie who made his ML debut this season. Merrill, who is highly anticipated by his team, has a batting average of 0.279 (64 hits in 229 at-bats) and five homers with an OPS (on-base plus slugging) of 0.703 as of Thursday. He has the most hits among rookies who made his debut this season.

Merrill hit multiple home runs on the day, becoming the youngest man in the ML to hit multiple home runs at the age of 21 years and 54 days. His second homer became a walk-off homer, becoming the youngest player to hit a walk-off homer in San Diego history.

Merrill, who started as the seventh batter’s center fielder, hit a solo shot in the middle of the fifth inning to take a 2-0 lead, and drew a superior walk-off solo home run to make it 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth inning with no runners on the first out. 토토사이트 추천

Left-handed batter Merrill pulled the slider that came toward the bottom of his body, which stretched out at 99.6 miles (160 kilometers) per hour and flew over the fence. After the game, Merrill told local media, “I saw the slider spin. I don’t even remember turning the bat. It feels surreal.”
