He is a pitcher who was on the Korean stage until two years ago. Cincinnati Reds right-hander Ben Lively, a familiar face to domestic fans, decorated his big league comeback with a victory.
On the 12th 토토사이트(Korean time), Lively pitched in relief in the 2023 Major League (MLB) home game against the New York Mets held at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, recording 3 innings, 4 hits, 1 strikeout and no runs, and the team’s 5-0 led to victory
Lively played a big league game for the first time in four years after the Los Angeles Angels game on April 29, 2019, when he was with the Kansas City Royals. He also tasted victory 2050 days after the match against the New York Mets on September 30, 2017.
Lively, who took the mound as the second pitcher after Derek Rowe, who played the role of ‘opener’, finished the top of the second inning by turning Sterling Marte and Daniel Vogelback to ground balls and strikeouts, respectively. In the top of the 3rd inning, he allowed consecutive hits after one out, but he got out of danger by hitting both Francisco Lindor and Jeff McNeil.
Lively, who deleted the 4th inning with no runs, continued pitching without a run until 1 run and 1st base in the top of the 5th inning, and finished his mission for the day by handing over the mound to Lucas Sims.
Lively, who was named by Cincinnati with 135th overall in the 4th round in 2013, debuted in the big leagues in 2017, but failed to leave a mark. In 2019, he only made one appearance in the big leagues.
The team that reached out to him, who was playing in Triple A, was the Samsung Lions. In 2019, Samsung was suffering from the sluggishness of foreign pitcher Deck Maguire, and in August of that year, it recruited Lively as a substitute foreign player.
Lively left a 10-12 average ERA of 4.14 in 202⅓ innings in 26 games in the KBO League. In the trust of the team, he wore a Samsung uniform in 2020 and the following year, but complained of shoulder pain during the 2021 season and has not been able to pitch in the first team since mid-May. In the end, Samsung recruited left-hander Mike Montgomery in early June, putting an end to the partnership with Lively.
Lively, who returned to the United States after leaving behind his two-year life in Korea, signed a minor contract with Cincinnati in January of last year, and once again set out to challenge the big leagues. He improved his chances of a big league call-up this year with a 2.33 earned run average in 5 games, 27 innings, 4 wins at Triple-A, and he was finally able to achieve his goal.
