‘Yamamoto, Lee Jung-hoo, be nervous!’ Milwaukee’s top rookie Churio reports his first home run in ML in five games, 0.350, OPS 0.950

Jackson Churio, a “special prospect” of the Milwaukee Brewers, who is expected to compete with Yoshinobu Yamamoto (LA Dodgers) and Lee Jung-hoo (San Francisco) for the National League Rookie of the Year this year, hit his first home run in the Major League.

Churio hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning when his team was leading 2-1 at home against the Minnesota Twins at the American Family Field in Milwaukee, the U.S. on Sunday. It was Churio’s first home run in five games after his Major League debut this year.

Churio, who started as the first and right fielder on the day, struck out Minnesota starter Chris Paddack with three pitches in his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning, and struck out swinging on a curve falling from a 2-2 ball count in the second game in the bottom of the second inning.

Churio’s bat, which had been dormant, burst at his third at-bat in the bottom of the fifth inning. In the face of Minnesota bullpen pitcher Daniel Duarte, Churio hit an 83.1 mile slider that came into the middle with the ball count 1-1, and connected it to a solo home run that went over the fence. The homer stretched 103.5 miles (about 166.6 kilometers) with a flying distance of 402 feet (about 122.5 meters). Churio finished the game with one hit, one RBI, and one run from four times at bat as he retired as a shortstop fly in the bottom of the seventh inning. His batting average is 0.350, and his on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS) is 0.931.

Churio, who made his name as Milwaukee’s top prospect by ranking high in various prospects rankings conducted ahead of the season, made his major league debut this season, unlike players such as Jackson Halladay (Baltimore) and Paul Skins (Pittsburgh), who started the season in the minor leagues. Although he has not played a few games yet, he has emerged as a strong contender for the rookie of the year for Yamamoto and Lee Jung-hoo with remarkable results. 여우알바

Meanwhile, Milwaukee lost 3-7 in the top of the seventh inning as the bullpen collapsed, including a large number of five runs.
