And he induced a swing strikeout with a whopping 81 miles (about 130 km) sweeper on the 4th pitch. It drew a trajectory lower than the strike zone, but Harper’s bat danced.

Rayleigh got a heavy hit while fighting the follow-up Nick Castellanos with a changeup in 2B2S. However, he struck out looking Kyle Schwaber with a full count and 91 mph two-seam. According to MLB.com Game Day, it was out of the strike zone, but the umpire’s hand went up. He doesn’t care about left and right hitters, but he was also strong against lefties. The left-handed lion with 48 wins in the KBO League was still the same in the major leagues.

Rayleigh passed the 2nd out and 1st baser mound to Drew Smith. Smith caught Drew Ellis on a fly ball to center field to end the game. A 4-2 win for the Mets. Rayleigh’s 13th hold of the season. With this hold, Reilly marked the second place in the National League hold after Peter Strezeki (Milwaukee Blues, 14 holds).

Rayleigh took a break from elbow inflammation in early May, but after returning, he showed good pace. The major league individual challenge for players from the KBO League continues. Rayleigh was one ahead of Carl Edwards (Washington Nationals, 12 holds), who placed third in the hold. It is a fierce competition.
