Texas Rangers hitter Joey Gallo won all four of his games on Friday-evening when the MLB The Show Players League started. The online tournament using the “MLB The Show 20” game features one player from each of the 30 Major League teams. The charity event helps to fill some time for players and fans as the baseball season is shut down indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Suggestion For You:
All players will go out once in a 29-game round-robin for the next three weeks. Each game in the regular season lasts three innings. The top eight players reach the & # 39; postseason & # 39 ;, which culminates in a World Series on May 2. The playoffs use a best-of-three format to the World Series, which will be the best-of-five.
Gallo was the star on the opening night, beating Minnesota Twins right-handed Trevor May, Houston Astros right-handed Lance McCullers Jr., Tampa Bay Rays left-handed Blake Snell and Cincinnati Reds left-handed Amir Garrett with a combined 30-6 score. & # 39; I think I’m better than I thought I was, & # 39; Gallo said on MLB’s YouTube stream. & # 39; I didn’t like myself that much. I’ve only played a few games online, but I’m glad I won.
“I was a little nervous about it. I didn’t want to go 0-4 because the Rangers fans already killed me.” Snell said about Gallo: & # 39; You should see his chat. It’s something like & # 39; Hall of Fame! Hall of Fame! & # 39; & # 39;
Garrett set a 3-1 & # 39; record & # 39; while Snell and McCullers both went 2-2. May finished 1-3 and Boston Red Sox left-handed Eduardo Rodriguez finished 0-4. Sony Interactive Entertainment and Major League Baseball, in partnership with the Players’ Association, will donate $ 5,000 on behalf of each player to a boys’ and girls’ club in their community. A total of $ 175,000 will be donated, including the World Series prize of $ 25,000.
