There was a reason for giving the pitcher 10 wins, batting average of .537… Miami’s first cycling hit
Luis Araez (26), a right-handed and left-handed infielder from Venezuela, set the Miami Marlins club’s first ‘Hit for the cycle’, a cycling hit record in Korean.
Araez started as a third hitter and second baseman in an away game against the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2023 major league held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on the 12th (Korean time), scoring 4 hits in 5 at-bats, 2 RBIs, and 2 runs for the club. Achieved the first cycling hit.
Araez, who opened the fire with a right double from his first at-bat in the first inning, was out with a straight hit to center field in the third inning. However, after hitting a triple toward the right fence in the 6th inning, he hit a solo home run over the left fence in the 7th inning.
Araez, who entered the last at-bat in the 8th inning with one single hit left until the cycling hit, completed the cycling hit with a hit in front of the left fielder. It was the first record in the 30-year history of Miami, which was founded in 1993.
According to ‘MLB.com’, this day was the 4700th game in Miami’s career, and Araez became the main character of the club’s first record. In the meantime, he had a record of six no-hitter games, but no cycling hits. He is the 6th player of Venezuelan nationality. 토스카지노
After the game, Araez said, “There are many people who help me focus on baseball every day. I want to give glory to my family and my wife who is pregnant with our third child,” he said confidently.
Araez, who debuted with the Minnesota Twins in 2019, ranked first in the American League (AL) batting average (.316) last year. Minnesota, which needed reinforcements in its starting lineup even though Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), who hit 62 homers, won three batting titles, acquired Pablo Lopez, a right-handed pitcher who won 10 victories last year, and traded Araez.
At the time of the trade, there were many evaluations that Miami was unexpected. They transferred all-star second baseman Jazz Chizom Jr. to center fielder and recruited Araez, which shows why they gave up a pitcher with 10 wins so far. Although it is the beginning of the season, in 12 games, he has a batting average of .537 (22 hits in 41 bats), 1 home run, 5 RBIs, 6 walks, 3 strikeouts, .596 slugging percentage, .732 OPS, 1.327. He leads Miami’s batting line by ranking first in batting average, hits, and on-base percentage, and third in OPS in both leagues.
