It is by no means good whenever you strikeout, nevertheless it’s actually not good whenever you strikeout in an embarassing means.

That is precisely what occurred throughout Saturday’s spring coaching sport between the Pirates and Yankees. On the high of the sixth inning, Yankees pitcher Darren O’Day was dealing with Pirates catcher Tony Wolters. The at-bat began off typical, working its option to a 2-2 rely.

Then for the third strike, O’Day made Wolters look foolish.

Sure, that’s the extremely uncommon strikeout the place the batter additionally will get hit by a pitch.

As an off-the-cuff baseball viewer, I did not even understand this was attainable. You’d suppose that each time the batter will get hit, they’d robotically go to first base. However most batters are in a position to see the wild pitch coming and by no means really swing at out, leading to a strikeout.

Wolters even had loads of time to see the pitch coming as MLB solely tracked the ball reaching the plate at 79.7 mph.

The strikeout was nearly made worse because it appeared Wolters acquired hit in that space, an space no man needs to get hit with a baseball at. However the baseball simply missed, and really hit Wolters’ higher thigh space.

Sadly, the hit-by-pitch did drive Wolters to depart the sport (he was changed by Andrew Susac). Though it isn’t clear if he suffered an precise damage. There was no speedy replace on Wolters after the sport.
