Minnesota home fans booing ‘boo~~’ Corea, why?
On the 12th (Korean time), the Minnesota Twins vs. San Diego Padres match was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
Carlos Correa contributed to the team’s 안전놀이터5-3 victory with a two-run double at the bottom of the seventh inning.
Correa, who returned to Minnesota after signing a six-year, $200 million contract in January, was booed by the home crowd as he entered the plate after striking out two in an earlier at-bat.
However, Correa hit a double from left against San Diego pitcher Brent Honeywell.
Correa, who is receiving the highest salary in the club’s history, recorded a shabby batting average of 0.189 until the previous game.
Nonetheless, Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli strongly defended Correa, saying, “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but he’s done that many times in his career, and he looks good now.”
Meanwhile, San Diego has gone 9-for-67 (.134) in scoring opportunities from second and third base over its past eight games.
“We have to do better,” said San Diego manager Bob Melvin.
