Grades are not in order of salary. Like a miracle, the Tampa Bay Rays are on a 12-game winning streak.
Tampa Bay won 9-7 against the Boston Red Sox in the ‘2023 Major League Baseball’ held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA on the 13th (Korean time). With the victory on this day, it continued its only undefeated record in 2023, running 12 consecutive wins from the opening game.
From the beginning of the game, Tampa Bay’s hot offense continued. At the end of the first inning, Randy Arosarena attacked opposing starter Chris Sale in one out, first and second base, and hit a three-run home run to take the lead to 3-0.
In the 4th and 5th innings, both teams traded points. Tampa Bay scored 1 RBI on Justin Turner at the beginning of the 4th inning with 1 out on 2nd base and made it 3-1, but in the bottom of the 4th inning with no bases loaded, Tampa Bay made it 4-1 with Yandi Dias’ sacrifice fly, 1 out and 2nd base, Wander Franco’s 2 RBIs He went 6-1 with a double.
In the beginning of the 5th inning, Kike Hernandez with 2nd out and 1st base scored 6-2 with 1 RBI and 2nd base, and Alex Verdugo scored 1 RBI in 2nd out and 2nd base and caught up with 6-3. After that, in the bottom of the 5th inning, with 2nd out and 2nd base, Christian Betancourt scored 1 RBI, 7-3, and continued to run 8-3 with Vidal Brujan’s 1st RBI in 2nd out and 2nd base.

In the bottom of the 8th inning, Arosarena’s sacrifice fly from 1st out and 3rd base put a wedge in a 9-7 victory and ran for 12 consecutive wins.
The reason why Tampa Bay’s 12-game winning streak is surprising is related to ‘Team Payroll’. The team is 28th out of 30 major league teams with about $74 million (about 97.5 billion won) this season. This is not a high amount considering the major league market where mega-contracts come and go. It is lower than the combined annual salary of New York Mets’ one-two punch Justin Verlander (40) and Max Scherzer (39), about $86.67 million (about 114.3 billion won). In other words, the total salary of the players is lower than the ransom of two top-class players.
However, Tampa Bay continues to run.온라인바카라 It is proving on the ground that grades are not in the order of annual salary. The batting line ranks first in team home runs (30), RBIs (90), OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage, 0.945), and second in team batting average (0.286). The mound is also stable. He leads the team in ERA (2.17) and is continuing his clean pitching.
Tampa Bay has only two wins left until the new record of 14 consecutive wins, one step above the major league opening tie record of 13 consecutive wins (Milwaukee Brewers in 1987, Atlanta Braves in 1982). Attention is focusing on whether Tampa Bay’s streak, which has broken brakes, will set a new major league record.
