Marte explodes every fall… PS hits in 16 consecutive games, ‘leading the way to WS’


After striking out 4 in Game 7 of the NLCS, an RBI was a stepping stone… Series MVP

In professional baseball, there are players who are especially active in the fall.

These are the so-called ‘strong-hearted’ players who perform above their capabilities in important short-term matches. 바카라사이트

A representative example is Ketel Marte (30), a utility player for the Arizona Diamondbacks of the Major League Baseball (MLB).

Marte had mediocre results in the 2017 regular season with a batting average of 0.260, 5 home runs, and 18 RBIs, but he swung a bat with a batting average of 0.412 with 7 hits in 17 at-bats, including hits in all four postseason (PS) games for the first time that year.

He is showing off his incredible power even on the stage this fall, his first in six years.

Starting with Game 1 of the National League Wild Card Game against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 4th (1 hit in 5 at-bats), he had consecutive hits in every game until Game 6 of the National League Championship Series (NLCS) against the Philadelphia Phillies on the 24th.

Marte continued to produce hits in Game 7 of the NLCS held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on the 25th.

The start wasn't easy.

Marte, who started as the first batter and second baseman, struck out in all four of his previous at-bats.

In the top of the 5th inning, when he was down 1-2, with 1 out and runners on 2nd base, he struck out after a missed swing, leaving a regret.

However, Marte exploded with hits.

In the top of the 7th inning, ahead 3-2, with 1 out and runners on first base, he hit a double over the right field against the changed pitcher Jose Alvarado.

Arizona later won 4-2, scoring a key point thanks to Corbin Carroll's sacrifice hit, and advanced to the World Series for the first time in 22 years.

Marte, who produced a hit in all NLCS games and set a stepping stone for a key RBI in the game that day, was selected as the NLCS Most Valuable Player (MVP).

Marte challenges a new history.

Now, if a hit is produced in the next PS game, the MLB PS record for consecutive game hits is tied.

According to MLB.com, the all-time record is 17 games, set by Hank Bower, Manny Ramirez, and Derek Jeter.

Ketel Marte will take on the big challenge in Game 1 of the World Series against the Texas Rangers, which will be held at 9:03 a.m. on the 28th.

Marte had a batting average of 0.276 in this year's regular season, but in 12 postseason games, he is swinging a bat with a batting average of 0.358, including two home runs.

After finishing the game that day, Marte said in an interview with local media, “I want to give everything I have.”
