(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Namjik Han = The Atlanta Braves of the American professional baseball team wrote on their official Twitter account on the 12th (Korean time), “WELCOME TO JOCTOBER!”
It was a message to welcome Jok Feeders’ performance in the October postseason.
Pederson hit three points in the pinch hit final in Game 3 of the 2021 Major League Baseball National League Division Series (NLDS, 3 out of 5) held at Truist Park, Atlanta, Georgia, USA on the 12th (Korean time).
Atlanta, 1st in the NL East Division, defeated the 1st Milwaukee Brewers in the Central Division 3-0 and took a 2-1 lead in the series record.
Atlanta, who finished their two consecutive visits with 1 win and 1 loss, won Game 3 at home, leaving only one win left to advance to the Championship Series.
The key to victory was definitely Pederson.
At the bottom of the 5th inning, which went 0-0, Atlanta took chances at first and second bases with consecutive hits from Travis Dano and Danceby Swanson.
Atlanta pitched pinch Pederson to pitcher Ian Anderson at bat.
Pederson hit a 154km/h fastball from Milwaukee right-hander Adrian Houser and opened three stores that crossed the right wall. It was the finale of the day.
In Game 1 of the NLDS, Pederson hit a pinch home run against Houser, and in Game 2, he made a heavy hit by attacking Hunt Strickland.
In all three of these NLDS games, he pitched as a pinch hitter and hit a hit, and set a record for hitting a pinch home run twice against Hauser.
Since the end of September, the ‘pearl necklace’ worn by Pederson has been called a ‘victory talisman’ by Atlanta fans.
Pederson made his big league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2014. As a teammate of Hyunjin Ryu (Toronto Blue Jays), he is familiar with domestic fans as well.
Pederson played for the Dodgers until 2020, before this season, he became a free agent and signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Chicago Cubs.
Pederson, who moved to Atlanta on July 16, is doing a great job with three at-bats, three hits, two home runs, and four RBIs on the stage this fall.
Atlanta and Milwaukee will play Game 4 at the same location on the 13th.
According to MLB.com, “The probability of advancing to the next round after a match in a best-of-five short-term match with 1 win and 1 loss and winning the 3rd round reaches 72% (39 times including 54).”
Game 4 of the American League Division Series was postponed by a day due to rain, due to the Houston Astros and the Chicago White Sox fighting at Guaranteed Late Field in Chicago, Illinois.
Houston and the White Sox will play Game 4 on the 13th, and if the White Sox, who is currently behind by 1-1, wins, Game 5 will be held in Houston on the 14th without a rest day.
