Sureger, 3,000K ahead, a dishonorable record in MLB history?
It was a pitching that knew too well when to cheer up and how to kill the opponent’s energy. Despite the age of 37, Max Schuerger’s momentum was strong.
He started the game against Atlanta at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 2nd (Korea time), and pitched nine strikeouts in six innings without a run. Although the winning pitcher’s requirements were blown away, it was a game where you could feel the presence of Shuerger.
The cannon was a formidable Atlanta batter, and Schuerger had nine defeats against Atlanta in his career. This was the most defeated match based on a particular team. But this day was different. The mid-90-mile fastball wriggled with its signature movement. Sliders falling outside the right-handed batter and change-ups falling into the body were almost perfect.
Although he finished pitching in the sixth inning due to mild pain on the hamstring side, Schuer continued to have a good record of 1.29 ERA in six games since the Dodgers transfer. He also continued his pleasant formula, “The Dodgers will win if Shuer takes the mound.” With the addition of nine strikeouts on the day, the historic 3,000 strikeouts are now showing signs. He is currently striking out 2981 in his career.
Unlike the mound, however, he made a shameful record at bat. This is the “no-run” record that has continued since the end of 2019. He failed to get on base on the same day, failing to get on base for 50 consecutive at-bats. Far from hitting, there were no balls or hit balls. During this period, he struck out 20 times. Schwarzer’s last on-base hit against Adam Waynewright (St. Louis) on September 19, 2019.
According to the official Major League website (MLB.com), this is a record. The previous record was held by Chun Wayne in 2016. Chun Wayne, then a Miami teammate, recorded 49 consecutive at-bats with no on base. It surpassed Jason Bregman’s previous record of 42 at-bats in 2008. There seemed to be no pitcher to break Chun Wayne’s record, which coincidentally went beyond that of Schuer, who was considered relatively good at bat.
In fact, I was unlucky. Having struck out 20 times in 50 at-bats, he also made 30 inflatable times. But there was no missed hit. The so-called “BABIP god” has abandoned Schwarzenegger. In fact, Shuer hit 78 hits in 516 at bat in his career. His batting average is 0.173 and he is not bad for a pitcher.토토사이트
MLB.com also pointed out that Shuer’s expected batting average, which was corrected by Statcast’s technology, is 0.078, and that he should have hit three to four out of 47 at-bats this year. On top of that, he said he bothered the pitcher by watching relatively many balls, but he didn’t get a hit or a walk. Of course, there would be no one to blame if Schwarzer continues his on-base record.
