On this day, Boston’s starting pitcher Tanner Hauk led the shortened game time by pitching 9 innings, allowing 3 hits, no walks, and striking out 9, resulting in a shutout.

In particular, he recorded 94 pitches, creating the ‘Maddox pitching’ record.

In MLB, if a pitcher gets a shutout while throwing less than 100 pitches, it is called ‘Maddux pitching’, in reference to legendary pitcher Greg Maddux.

Cleveland’s pitching team also helped shorten the time with a strong relay.

Cleveland starter Ben Lively pitched well, allowing 3 hits, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts, and 2 runs in 5 innings, and also held the two bullpen pitchers who followed without allowing any runs.

Lively is familiar to domestic fans as a player who played for the Samsung Lions in the KBO League from 2019 to 2021.

Meanwhile, MLB reduced the average game time based on 9 innings in the 2023 season, which introduced the pitch clock, by 24 minutes from 3 hours and 4 minutes to 2 hours and 40 minutes.

In MLB, a pitcher must throw the ball within 15 seconds when there are no runners and within 18 seconds when there are runners.

The KBO League is piloting a pitch clock this year and is encouraging players to throw the ball within 18 seconds when there are no runners and within 23 seconds when there are runners.
