Corey Seager (29, Texas Rangers) wields a fire bat. Unfortunately, I missed the cycling hit.
Seager started as the second shortstop in the 2023 Major League Baseball match against the Los Angeles Angels held at Globe Live Field in Arlington, Texas on the 14th (Korean time) and recorded 3 hits (1 home run), 1 RBI and 2 runs in 5 at-bats.
On this day, from his first at-bat, he hit. In the bottom of the first inning, with one out, Seager hit a fast ball on the third pitch from Angels starter Jamie Barria, creating a left-handed hit. Afterwards, with a hit and a ball that hit the body, Seager advanced to third base, but failed to score as no follow-up hit came out.
He pulled out a long hit in his second at-bat. At the end of the 3rd inning, when the team was trailing 0-1, he came out as the lead batter and attacked Barria’s changeup and hit a heavy double. He then scored on Nate Lowe’s two-run four.
It was a two-at-bat slugging. In the bottom of the 5th inning, when the team turned 2-1, Seager, who started as the lead batter, hit Barria’s fast ball accurately and crossed the center fence. Season 8 issue.
Now, if you hit a triple, it’s a cycling hit토토사이트. Was it conscious of the long hit? Seager hit the sinker on the second pitch of pitcher Aaron Roof, who was switched from second out on first base in the bottom of the sixth inning, which allowed the team to turn 3-4. The batted ball went high, and the center fielder retreated with a floating ball.
Seager entered his final at-bat. He met Jacob Webb with one out in the bottom of the ninth, trailing 3-7. After picking out two balls, he hit a fast ball on the third pitch, but this time it was just a fly ball to left field.
In the end, he failed to record a cycling hit and had to settle for a three-hit game.
Compared to Shohei Ohtani, who had a head-to-head match that day, it can be said that it is a better performance. Ohtani had 2 hits, 3 walks and 5 on-base games.
Texas signed a super-large contract with Seager for a total of 325 million dollars (approximately 415.5 billion won) over 10 years.
However, compared to the splendid ransom, the results of the first year of transfer were shabby. Seager hit 33 homers, but had a batting average of 0.245, an on-base percentage of 0.317, and a slugging percentage of 0.455. Compared to his batting average of 0.306, on-base percentage of 0.394, and slugging percentage of 0.521 in 2021, when he was with the LA Dodgers, there was no meaning in paying a lot of money.
Luckily for him, this year was different. He’s been out for a while with a hamstring injury, but he’s been exploding since June. He is showing hot offensive power with a batting average of 0.435, an on-base percentage of 0.490, and a slugging percentage of 0.761 in 11 games in June.
