12 consecutive innings without a run.
I don’t remember the last time Huff didn’t have a 1-2 count. I don’t remember the last time Sandoval swung at a strike, and took a ball, instead of the other way around.
UPDATE: 14 straight. Eugenio Velkez and Mike Fontenont batting 1 and 2. Unbelievable.
UPDATE: 17 consecutive innings. Wow. At least we won.
I looked up Huff, he’s batting .250 since the start of August, with just 4 home runs in 148 at bats. Is he just exhausted? It sure seems that he has faced a ton of two strike at bats lately, ( I have no idea how to look that up without going through his game log, and I ain’t got the time for that). If that’s true, I’d guess that pitchers have either figured out he was taking a lot more pitches than he had historically, or he has stopped doing so (or a combination of the two, obviously). Either way, there’s no time for rest, so he’s gonna have to get it done whether he’s exhausted or whatever.
As for Pablo, after a sizzling August, he’s back to his old, undisciplined hackers mentality. He’s 3 for his last 32, and 0 for his last 15. He left something like 8 or 9 men on base last night, almost single-handedly deciding the game. Forget about how fat he is. He looks like he has no idea what he’s doing at the plate at all. None. What is Meulens doing with him?
