3 strikeouts in a row, another substitution… 1st in strikeouts after falling short of the regulation at bat, it was underground, not the floor

Strikeout, strikeout, strikeout. Brian O’Grady (31, Hanwha), who was replaced after striking out three times in a row, shows no hope of a rebound. He was the first hitter to strike out 40 in the league despite falling short of the regulation plate count. It’s sad to watch.

On the 18th, O’Gredi started as the 7th hitter and left fielder in the home game against Lotte in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park. On his birthday the previous day (17th), he hit right-handed in the last at-bat in the 7th inning, but the bat cooled down after striking out three consecutive at-bats in one day.

It was twisted from the start of the first at-bat in the third inning. He played a full-count game against Lotte sidearm starter Han Hyun-hee, but struck out looking on the inside fastball on the 6th pitch. The ball looked slightly out of the zone, but referee Kim Kap-soo called for a strike and O’Grady froze.

In the 5th inning, he struck out on a swing with 1 out and 1 base after 4 pitches. After watching the first pitch changeup as a strike, O’Grady, whose bat was in vain on the third pitch, made another swing on the fourth pitch without matching the timing.

The 3rd at-bat in the 7th was no different. He fouled the fastball on the 6th pitch in a full count match with lefty Kim Jin-wook, but the bat could not catch up with the fastball that landed low on the outside of the 7th pitch. He struck out again on a swing and left the plate in vain.

O’Grady, who was replaced by great defense Kwon Kwang-min ahead of the defense in the 8th inning, started all three consecutive matches against Lotte, but could not play the game to the end. On the first day, after striking out in two consecutive at-bats, he was replaced by pinch hitter Park Jeong-hyeon at second base without an out in the 7th inning.

By this day, O’Grady’s season batting average had dropped further from 1.3 to 1.25 (10 hits in 77 at-bats). He had a .174 on-base percentage, .163 slugging percentage, and .337 OPS, his percentage records declining. He thought it was the floor, but he’s breaking through the basement. He can’t see the end of the trough.

On the other hand, in 86 at-bats, he struck out 40, which was so bad that he struck out almost every two at bats. Only 4 games with 3 or more strikeouts, including 2 games with 4 strikeouts. He surpassed Kim Joo-won (NC) and Oh Jae-il (Samsung), who struck out 39 even though they were 28 times short of the required number of at-bats, and became the most strikeout hitter in the league 체스카지노.

Hanwha lost 3-7, although Kwon Kwang-min hit his first home run in the 9th inning with a three-run four. It ended with a losing series of 1 win and 2 losses in the silence of the batting line dragged to the Lotte mound with 2 hits and no points until the 8th inning.
