Senga Godai (New York Mets) is making a soft landing in the major leagues. He is playing the role of the team’s ace, winning both games. The $86.66 million (approximately 114.3 billion won) duo is shaking, but this is why the New York Mets are enduring it.
On the 9th (Korean time), Senga started in the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Miami Marlins held at Citi Field in Flushing, New York, USA, and had 6 innings, 3 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 6 strikeouts and 1 run. -2 led to victory.

On the last 3 days, he met his debut opponent again. At that time, Senga announced a difficult start, such as causing a crisis with no bases loaded in the first inning. However, he overcame it and won his debut with 88 pitches, 3 hits, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts and 1 run in 5⅓ innings.
Against Miami, which they met again, Senga was shaken again in the first inning. After striking out Jazz Chizom Jr. in the first inning, he was hit by consecutive hits from Garrett Cooper and Luis Araez, putting him in a crisis with one out and 1st and 2nd base. However, he overcame the crisis in the first inning by striking out Jorge Soler with a swing and dealing Jin Segura with a ground ball to the first baseman.
In the second inning, he showed off his power by striking out Avisail Garcia, Brian De La Cruz, and Nick Portes in succession.
In the third inning, he gave up one walk, but passed without a crisis, and in the fourth inning, he continued cruising by creating a three-way inning again. Three-way offense in the top of the 5th inning.
Episode 6 was disappointing. In the 6th inning, lead batter Jazz Chizom Jr. hit him with a solo shot. He treated Garrett Cooper with a ground ball to second baseman, but after giving Luis Araez a walk, he committed a wild throw and was driven to second base with a first out. He treated Jorge Soler as a floating ball in right field and became 2nd and 3rd base and gave up a walk to Jin Segura. Crisis of 2nd company 1st and 3rd base. However, he ended the inning by turning Avisail Garcia on a ground ball to third baseman. It was the first quality start of his major league debut.
He dominated the game,안전놀이터 throwing a mix of 40 four-seams, 18 sweepers, 18 cutters and 16 forkballs each for a best of 98.3 miles (158.1 km).
While the one-two punch of Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, who have invested $86.66 million, is shaking due to injuries and sluggishness, Senga is firmly guarding the starting lineup with his major league debut.
Along with Senga’s performance, Pete Alonso and Eduardo Escobar led the game with two two-run fours on the other line. The Mets recorded 5 wins and 4 losses on the season with 2 consecutive wins.
