Tony La Russa of Chicago White Sox says he’d like to walk again to Trea Turner at the Los Angeles Dodgers.

CHICAGO — One day after a failed two-strike intentional walking, Chicago White Sox Tony La Russa, the manager, said that he would do it again.

Thursday's 11-9 loss at the hands of the Tigers was in the sixth inning. Los Angeles DodgersLa Russa hit speedsters right-handed. Trea Turner With a count of 1-2 Left-handed hitting Max Muncy Then, a lefty three-run homer followed. Bennett Sousa This opened the Los Angeles lead up to 10-5.

Muncy's return from left elbow inflammation had him score five RBI. He reached his first game at.150, compared to Turner's.303.

La Russa, who is 77 years old, spoke about a line he had heard from Paul Richards, former White Sox and Baltimore manager.

“Trust your gut. La Russa advised that you don't cover your stomach.

Freddie Freeman After Sousa threw a 0-2 slider for an wild pitch, Turner was at second base in the sixth. La Russa made Turner the first baseman, believing Turner to be a more serious threat.

La Russa remarked, “Psssssh! 24 hours later, it's even more surprising.” It's not even close. You don't know what Muncy was doing from the left side this season. .125.”

Turner was involved in the move, having already driven in a hit when he threw an infield single.

According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Turner is a .254 career hitter after a 1-2 count against a lefty pitcher, and this season he is hitting .333 (5-for-15) in such situations.

La Russa stated that Turner is a hard hitter. He can hit one strike or two strikes. “He is quick and has many ways to hurt you and put the ball in play.

“Now, it would have been a right-handed pitch, yes, I would have tried to make one.”

Turner claimed that he was stunned when he got sent to first. Muncy said he was upset and then threw a 2-2 pitch from Sousa right over the left-center wall for his fourth homer.

La Russa explained that someone had sent him stats on Turner's batting average of 1-2 runs. “He's the third or fourth best hitter in baseball for the last three years.” We all know that.
