MLB: Nate Fisher finally gets his chance

MLB: Nate Fisher finally gets his chance

BET À DAY

After temporarily turning the page on his baseball career to work in finance in 2020, pitcher Nate Fisher saw action for the very first time in major league baseball on Sunday.

Fisher didn't give up a run, giving up just one hit from the safe and two free passes in three innings in a 10-9 win over the Phillies in Philadelphia.< /p>

Fisher returned to baseball with the Seattle Mariners affiliates in 2021 before joining the Mets organization this past offseason. This year at the AAA level, he went 1-2 with a 3.12 ERA in 12 games, including 10 starts.

That good first game from Fisher helped the Mets pull together defensively to win a resolutely attacking game. The rookie took over from Jose Butto, who was also playing his very first career game. The latter gave up seven runs, nine hits and two walks in just four innings.

Mark Canha then took matters into his own hands with two homers, for a total of five runs. Brandon Nimmo came to put the finishing touch by also sending a ball into the stands in the ninth inning. He thus produced the 10th and last point of his team.

In the defeat, Jean Segura slammed a long solo ball in the eighth turn at bat. It was the home favorites' third homer after Alec Bohm's two, good for six runs.

Rays catch Jays

At Tropicana Field, the Tampa Bay Rays took advantage of an inspired performance from Harold Ramirez to beat the Kansas City Royals 3-2.

The victory not only allows the Florida team to win the series two games to one, but also to tie the Toronto Blue Jays in the standings by virtue of a 65-55 record, the second most teams drafted in the American.

Ramirez hit two simple productive in this duel where defense was in the spotlight. Reliever Shawn Armstrong (2-1) needed just four strikeouts to add the win to his record.
