His batting average, which had fallen to 106 and 70, is now looking at 300.
Boston Red Sox outfielder Yoshida Masataka (30) had two hits against the Toronto Blue Jays on the 2nd (Korean time). He came on as the second designated hitter and hit a double to left field in the first inning and a base hit in the fifth. On April 26, following the Boltmore Orioles match, he played a multi-hit game in 5 games.
In the first inning, lead batter Alex Verdugo hit a double toward center field. From second base, Yoshida hit the Green Monster on the left side of Fanway Park in Boston with an RBI double. Toronto starting pitcher Jose Berrios pushed an outside high course fastball (150km/h) thrown from 1B. It is a ball that hits the green monster directly in 3 consecutive games.
This season, he recorded a hit streak of 11 games, the most in the major leagues. Yoshida then homed on Justin Turner’s timely hit in the third.
In the second at-bat in the third inning, the third baseman was out with a ground ball. The second hit came in the third at-bat. This time, he entered the plate as the lead batter. He hit 2B2S with a sinker (150 km/h) that burrowed into his body and made it a heavy hit.
4 at-bats, 2 hits, 1 RBI
Boston won by hitting a walk-off home run by leadoff hitter Alex Verdugo in the bottom of the 9th inning when the score was tied 5-5. The changed pitcher Jordan Romano hit a 150 km/h fastball in the middle of the throw and crossed the right wall.
It was the third win in a row this season.
In his first year in the majors, he adapted quickly.
Yoshida posted a new tournament record of 13 RBIs as a main hitter for the Japanese national team at the WBC (World Baseball Classic). He played a big role as a key hitter and led Japan to the championship. Returning to his team Boston, he started in the opening game as the fourth-left fielder. He took a short break due to a hamstring injury, but overcame the sluggishness and returned as a center hitter.스포츠토토

In 11 consecutive hits, 18 hits in 43 at-bats and a batting average of .419. As of the 2nd, he is 26 hits in 91 at-bats, batting average of 2.8 with 6 runs, 4 home runs and 17 RBI. His batting average, which had gone down to 1.6 and 7.00, rose to the late 20.00s.
