Matthew Boyd (32, Detroit Tigers) had a good pitching game with 7 strikeouts in 3 innings.
Boyd took the mound as a starter on the 7th (hereafter local time) in a spring training exhibition game between Detroit and St토토사이트. Louis Cardinals.
He put pressure on St. Louis hitters with a variety of pitches, including a 79-80 mph slider, an 81-mph changeup, and a 93-94 mph fastball.
Boyd came down the mound with a faint smile, recording 1 earned run and 7 strikeouts in 3 innings. The team also won a landslide victory, 16-3.
After the game, Boyd said, “My plan was to attack St. Louis with all the pitches I could use on the mound.
He was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 6th round of the 2013 draft and debuted in the majors two years later. He played for Detroit for the next seven years, but was released as a non-tender and transferred to the San Francisco Giants last year. Traded to the Seattle Mariners in the second half, he returned to Detroit from his last free agency.
