Randy Johnson, the hero of the 2001 World Series, stood on the mound on the best stage again. He threw the ball as a player 22 years ago and as a first pitcher 22 years later.
Arizona held Game 3 of the 2023 World Series against the Texas Rangers at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA on the 31st (Korean time).
Before the game on this day, Johnson and Luis Gonzalez, the protagonist of the 2021 World Series winning hit, came out on the first pitch. The MVP and the hero온라인카지노 with the walk-off hit came forward at the same time.
Accordingly, Johnson stepped on the World Series mound again for the first time in 22 years. It has been 8030 days since November 5, 2001 that the World Series was held at Arizona’s home stadium.
Johnson pitched 17 1/3 innings in 3 World Series games (2 starts) at the time, leading Arizona to its first championship with 3 wins, no losses, and an ERA of 1.04.
A shutout win with 11 strikeouts in Game 2 and a 2-run win in 7 innings in Game 6. He then appeared in relief in Game 7 and won thanks to a walk-off hit after 1 1/3 scoreless innings. MVP was a given.
Johnson did not perform well in the postseason before or after 2001. His performance in 2001 left him with the image of a big game feature.
Attention is focused on whether Arizona can take the energy of the World Series MVP who dominated the fall 22 years ago and run to its second championship since its founding.
