Sometimes records that go beyond common sense are interesting.
Attention is focused on whether two new records will be created in the major league this season.
The main characters are San Diego Padres ace Blake Snell and Philadelphia Phillies left-handed slugger Kyle Schwarber. Both players are approaching a record unprecedented in Major League history.
First of all, Snell is ranked first in ERA (2.50) and walks (89) as of the 7th (Korean time). Chicago White Sox Michael Kopek allowed 5 walks in the game against the Detroit Tigers on the 4th, tying with Snell for first place, but looking at the remaining season schedule, Snell may appear on the mound one more time than Kopech.
In Major League history, there is no case in which the pitcher with the highest ERA in both leagues has allowed the most walks. Snell’s average walks per 9 innings is 5.17, ranking first among 54 pitchers who exceeded the required number of innings. This means that he is a pitcher with poor ball control, but the reason he ranks first in ERA is because he allows few hits.
The hitting percentage of 0.191 is also first overall. He gave up 105 hits in 155 innings, tied for 95th on the record for most hits. It is no exaggeration to say that it shows the essence of saltwater pitching.
Snell could appear 4-5 times for the remainder of the season. As he is the favorite to win the National League Cy Young Award, he is expected to decide whether to pitch for a fifth time while managing his earned run average. Second place in ERA was the Chicago Cubs’ Justin Steele (2.55), trailing Snell by a hair’s breadth.
As for the most walks, Kopech may also turn things around, so we will have to wait until the end of the season to see whether the true record of ‘No. 1 in ERA – Most walks’ will be created.
Schwarber is challenging the record of 40 home runs by a hitter with a batting average of .100. In the game against the San Diego Padres held at Petco Park on this day, he hit a mid-month solo shot from Michael Waka in the top of the first inning, marking his 41st home run of the season.카지노
Schwarber, who hit 2 hits in 4 at-bats, also raised his batting average to 0.195. Recapturing the 200,000 generation is just around the corner. In early August, he gradually raised his batting average, which had fallen to 1.77 percent, and entered September, hitting 7 hits in 19 at-bats in 6 games and entering the 1.9 percent range. For Schwarber, a batting average of .100 is a loss of face. He will somehow try to get his batting average up to .200. The creation of the first hitter in history with .100 or 40 home runs may be a thing of the past.
Schwarber is the NL’s defending home run king. His 46 home runs last season earned him his first career home run title. He aims to become the home run king for the second time in a row. The first place in this category was Matt Olson of the Atlanta Braves, who hit 46 home runs in three consecutive games until the game against the St. Louis Cardinals. It doesn’t seem easy to overturn the five-point gap.
The most walks for Snell and the batting average of .100 for Schwarber would be records that one would want to avoid. So, it is a rare record.
