Miami Marlins’ Luis Araes (26) continued his 6-game hitting streak, but is getting farther and farther away from the .400 batting average.
On the 6th (Korean time), Araes started as second baseman once against the St. Louis Cardinals at Rondipo Park in Miami, Florida, USA, and recorded 1 hit and 1 run in 5 at-bats.
Araes, who won the American League batting title with a batting average of 3.16 (173 hits in 547 bats) while playing for Minnesota last season, was traded to Miami this season, batting 3.8 4 (121 hits in 315 bats) in 82 games with Minnesota. With 3 homers, 41 RBIs and an OPS of .913, he is challenging the batting champion in both leagues for the first time in history for two consecutive years.
However, since Ted Williams in 1941, the challenge for a batting average of 40% for the first time in 82 years is becoming increasingly difficult. Araes raised his expectations for a 40% batting average by taking his batting average of 40% and 20% on the 24th of last month. However, he has since had 12 hits in 11 games, and despite a recent six-game hitting streak, his batting average has declined to 3.8 4.
MLB.com, the official major league media outlet, said, “Araes, who achieved the first cycling hit in Miami club history on April 12, has been fighting for a batting average of 40% throughout the season. After going 1-for-5 with a run against St. Louis the past six days, his batting average has dropped to 3.8 4,” he explained. 메이저토토사이트
Of course, the possibility of a .400 batting average has not disappeared yet. Ted Williams, who last achieved a .400 batting average, also had his batting average below .400 until July 25, 1941 (3.9 pun 7). Prior to the last doubleheader, he was 3.9, 9.5, 5.0, and already had a batting average of .400. However, he appeared in both doubleheaders and recorded 6 hits in 8 at-bats, clearly passing .400.
Miami played a total of 88 games until the 6th. Williams, the last .400 hitter, had a batting average of .396 (97 hits in 245 at-bats) in 88 games played by the team. Araes, who is starting as the first hitter, has a lower batting average than Williams at the time, but is recording more hits.
