Aaron Judge approaching dubious streak; Joey Votto, Giancarlo Stanton nearing own historic marks

Comments (0) News

For Joey Votto and Giancarlo Stanton Tuesday night was one of joy and continued succe s. For Aaron Judge it was one of extended failure.Votto may have https://www.rangersedges.com/texas-rangers/nomar-mazara-jersey gone 0for2, buthe walked three times in a 2-1 Reds win over the Cubs. It marked the 20th straight game in which he has reached base at least twice. He is one game away from tying the modern record of 21 straight games set by Ted Williams in 1948.Votto has been one of the most consistent producers in MLB since his career began, and while he often flies under the radar in Cincinnati, he is a favorite of both old and new baseball pundits.One of the biggest reasons is because of hisability to get on base. Of Votto’s 11 major league seasons, the 33-year-old has had an on-base percentage (OBP) of .400 in nine of those seasons. His OBP in 2017 currently stands at .448and a lot of that has to do with his last 20 games.As for Stanton this is becoming a broken record. The Marlins outfielder homered for the sixth straight game in a 9-4 lo s to the Giants. This was his 11th home run in his last 12 games.Stanton is the first player since Nolan Arenado to homer in six consecutive games(2015).Stanton has 18 homers since the All-Star Break, matching the Marlins single-season record (set by him in 2012).Giancarlo Stanton has 23 HR in last 35 games; from @EliasSports, only Sammy Sosa (1998) and Barry Bonds (2001) had more in 35-game stretch. pic.twitter.com/hXCbaeQgGZ ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo https://www.rangersedges.com/texas-rangers/edinson-volquez-jersey ) August 16, 2017Now we get to the dubious streak of Aaron Judge. While Judge did go 1for3 with a walk in Tuesday night’s 5-4 win over the Mets, he struck out yet again marking the 32nd consecutive game he has recorded a strikeout. That ties Adam Dunn (2012) for the most consecutive games with a strikeout in MLB history.While Votto and Stanton want to do all they can right now to keep their streaks going, Judge is doing everything he can to end his.Stud of the NightCarlos Santana does two things very well. He walks and he hits home runs. He did both Tuesday night. In fact, he did both twice. The Indians first baseman went 3 for 3 with two home runs, two walks and three RBIs in Cleveland’s 8-1 win over the Twins. He also tallied a single on his way to a perfect night.Dud of the NightWhile Joe Mauer did go 0 for 4 with three strikeouts, his night was a bit of an anomaly. For Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford though, his 0-for-4 night with three Jon Niese Jersey strikeouts is a sign of something much more sinister. Crawford is now hitle s in his last 15 at-bats and is hitting .224 which is the lowest batting average he has had since he was a rookie in 2011.HighlightWhile Tuesday night’s 10-4 Red Sox win over the Cardinals may have looked like a blowout, for the first four innings it was a back-and-forth pitcher’s duel. With runners on first and second andno outs in the fourth, the Cardinals looked like they had something cooking. That is, until Yadier Molina hit a sharp ground ball to third base. The rest is just another line in Rafael Devers’ dramatic first few weeks of MLB.It’s easy as 5-4-3. @RedSox turn the triple play with EASE. https://t.co/k2AOdPVPQC pic.twitter.com/qCWjM3j0eo MLB (@MLB) August 16, 2017 What’s NextPirates (58-61) at Brewers (62-59) 2:10 p.m. ET While Pirates ace Gerritt Cole (10-8, 3.96 ERA) may have gone through a rough patch in the middle part of the year he has really put it together in recent weeks to sing seven straight quality starts. The Brewers will counter with Jimmy Nelson (9-6, 3.72 ERA)in thisafternoon game with potential NL Central postseason implications on the line.
