◆ Starting pitcher Bassett’s “Expressing Emotions” in his first game against Texas… It’s back to poison
The most regrettable thing was to give up the first game against Texas. The team was completely defeated 4-10, and it was fatal that Ryu Hyun-jin’s teammate Chris Bashit (34) couldn’t control his emotions as he was momentarily “wow.” In the top of the second inning, third baseman Mitch Garber took a large lead, and Basht suddenly began to rush toward third base. At that time, Toronto third baseman Cavan Vizio completely emptied the third base and made a shift to the shortstop position, which Garber aimed for. However, Bassett did not leave this figure and ran to third base. The problem was that the out count did not go up with the third check failure, leading to a balk. In the end, third baseman Garber stepped home for free, and later, Bashit collapsed with nine hits (one home run) and three walks, three strikeouts and five runs in 5 2⅓ innings.
