San Diego Padres shortstop Xander Bogartz 31 whipped himself with strong remarks. It was the team’s first four-game winning streak of the season, but I couldn’t help but blame myself for ruining the game in offense and defense. 토토사이트 Bogartz started as the fifth batter shortstop against the Colorado Rockies on the 1st and recorded 1 hit in 5 at-bats. He hit one hit in the eighth inning, but he only showed his worst appearance in the rest of the at-bat.
He cut off the offensive flow by hitting a double play in the fourth inning with no outs and runners on first and second base in the sixth inning, and stepped down with a ground ball to second base in the 10th inning with no outs and a full base. After Bogartz’s cold-water hit, San Diego, where follow-up batters also stepped down with a hit, ended scoreless with no outs and a full base. It lost 3-4, allowing a walk-off score in the 10th inning that followed.
In the fifth inning, he made a ridiculous mistake in defense. In the fifth inning with a 1-0 lead, pitcher Seth Lugo caught a grounder heading straight to second base, and Bogartz, who came in to the base cover, dropped the ball. Even though the throw was not far off, Bogartz made a ridiculous catch error. If it was a normal play, the situation without two outs and runners on first and second base with no outs due to a double play changed, and Colorado turned 2-1 with Elefuris Montero’s double in the continued attack.
After the game, Bogartz also expressed frustration. In an interview with local media, including the San Diego Union-Tribune, Bogartz said after the match, “It was a bad day. I’m frustrated that I can’t play my role. Today’s defeat is entirely my responsibility. “I played like trash,” he said, blaming himself. San Diego Union-Tribune also showed “Bogatsu’s self-proclaimed garbage performance.” He made a mistake that led to a run, and made a pathetic 10th inning with two double plays and a grounder to select a fielder in the 10th inning,’ he pointed out.
Bogartz, who made his debut with the Boston Red Sox in 2013, is a big gun shortstop with five silver sluggers and four All-Star careers. As a veteran who has won the World Series twice in Boston in 2013 and 2018, he has shown strength in hitting with a batting average of .292 1,410 hits in 4,834 at-bats of 156 home runs and 683 RBIs in 10 seasons until last year.
In December last year, San Diego hired Bogartz, who was released as a free agent, on an 11-year long-term contract with a large amount of $280 million. With Kim Ha-sung, who was a final candidate for the National League Gold Glove as the main shortstop last year, he brought Bogartz and focused on strengthening his offense. With Bogartz coming, Kim Ha-sung left his shortstop position and moved to second base.
However, Bogartz’s batting average of .264 (101 hits in 382 at-bats) in 101 games this season, 11 home runs, 37 RBIs, and OPS.739, fell short of expectations. His worst performance since 2015. He started well with a batting average of .38 (33 hits in 107 at-bats) in 29 games in April with six home runs and 13 RBIs OPS.914, but has been sluggish with a batting average of .247 68 hits in 275 at-bats and five home runs and 24 RBIs OPS.671 in 72 games since May.
Amid Bogartz’s repeated slump, San Diego is ranked fourth in the NL West with 52 wins and 55 losses 0.486 and seventh in the wild card. Fall baseball has become difficult as it is five games behind the joint third-place group.
