KIA former Aaron Brooks (San Diego) became the winning pitcher in the demonstration game.
The San Diego Padres won 6-2 against the Chicago White Sox in the 2023 Major League Baseball exhibition game held at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona on the 26th (Korean time).
San Diego’s starting pitcher Seth Lugo allowed a one-run home run to Gavin Sheets in the bottom of the second inning to lead 1-0. At the end of the 3rd inning when the score was 1-1, Brooks followed Lugo on the mound. Brooks allowed a double to Louis Robert Jr. and was in danger of a run on second base, but he overcame the crisis by handling Yoan Moncada and Elroy Jimenez as grounders.토토사이트

The White Sox recovered with Jake Berger’s one-run homer in the bottom of the ninth, but the game ended in a 6-2 San Diego victory. Brooks became the winning pitcher.
Brooks is a name familiar to KBO League fans as well. He played for the KIA Tigers for two seasons, 2020 and 2021. Brooks recorded an average ERA of 2.50 in 23 games in the 2020 season, 11 wins, 4 losses, 151⅓ innings, 43 runs (42 ERA) and 130 strikeouts. He finished the season with a third earned run average.
In the 2021 season, he recorded an average ERA of 3.35 with 34 runs (29 ERA) and 55 strikeouts in 13 games in the first half, 3 wins, 5 losses, and 78 innings. However, ahead of the second half of the season, marijuana components were detected in an e-cigarette ordered from the United States, and it was investigated. KIA immediately requested the KBO to disclose the voluntary withdrawal. Brooks, who was investigated in Korea, departed for the United States at the end of January 2022 after being sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison, 3 years of probation, a fine of 100,000 won, and the confiscation of 3 cannabis cartridges and 30 hemp jelly.
Brooks signed a minor league contract with the St. Louis Cardinals last season. He was called up to the majors at the end of March, but performed poorly with an earned run average of 7.71 with 8 earned runs (8 earned) in 5 games, 9⅓ innings and 7 strikeouts, and was assigned the Draft. After that, he is preparing for this season by signing a minor league contract with San Diego.
On the other hand, Kim Ha-seong, who recorded no hits in two at-bats in the game the previous day, did not play in the game that day.
