Louis Araez (Miami Marlins) started as the first batter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League Baseball match against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on the 17th (Korea time) and recorded five hits (one home run) and three RBIs in five at-bats.
In the top of the first inning,토토사이트 Araez came out as the leadoff hitter and hit a hit after a game that lasted up to eight pitches against Trevor Williams. Jorge Solaire also walked out and scored the first run with Jesus Sanchez’s two-run timely hit.
Araez hit a home run in his second at-bat in the top of the second inning when the score was 2-2. With two outs and runners on first base, he hit Williams’ four-seam fastball toward his body and crossed the right fence. This is his second home run of the season.
In the top of the fourth inning, Araez had another chance. After one out, Jacob Stallings walked and Jonathan Davis hit an infield hit, making it first and second base. Araez, who came to bat, pushed Williams’ four-seam fastball and hit an RBI timely hit in front of left field.
In both the seventh and ninth innings, he came out as the leadoff hitter and recorded hits, but no follow-up hits came out. Miami, however, beat Washington 6-5 thanks to Araez’s three RBIs.
Araez remained silent with no hits in 12 at-bats in three consecutive away games for the Seattle Mariners from the 13th to the 15th. His batting average dropped to 0.378. However, he recorded five hits in his first game away from Washington, raising his batting average to 0.390 again.
Araez is currently challenging a .400 batting average. Ted Williams, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame, was the last player to hit a .400 batting average among the players who filled the regular at-bat in the Major League Baseball. Williams batted .406 in 1941.
According to the Major League Baseball’s official website, “MLB.com ,” Araez said, “Baseball is difficult. It is also difficult to record a batting average of 40 percent. But that is not impossible. “I want to hit every at-bat,” he said. “Five hits in five at-bats.” It’s beautiful,” he said.
Araez became the American League batting champion last season with 173 hits, eight home runs, 49 RBIs, 88 runs scored and a .316 OPS 0.795 batting average for the Minnesota Twins. He has maintained his No. 1 batting average in the National League this season. If Araez becomes the batting champion, he will be the first player since 1900 to become the batting champion in a row in the American League and the National League
