Minnesota Twins infielder Jose Miranda (26) hit 12 consecutive hits, tying the record for the most in Major League Baseball (MLB) history.

Miranda started as the 4th batter and 3rd baseman in the home game against the Houston Astros held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA on the 7th (Korean time), got on base on a hit-by-pitch in the 1st inning, and hit a hit in the 2nd and 4th innings.

Miranda, who hit a center hit in the last at-bat of the 8th inning against the Detroit Tigers on the 4th, went on to hit 5 hits in 5 at-bats against Detroit on the 5th, 4 hits in 4 at-bats against Houston on the 6th, and hit hits in the 2nd and 4th innings on the 7th to continue his ’12-at-bat hitting streak’.

MLB.com introduced it by saying, “Miranda’s record is tied for the most ever and the most since the league’s expansion era in 1961.

Johnny Kling of the Chicago Cubs (1902), Pinkie Higgins of the Boston Red Sox (1938) and Detroit’s World Droppo (1952) have hit in 12 consecutive at-bats, matching Miranda’s.

Since teams began expanding in 1961, the previous record for consecutive hits was 11 by Bernie Williams (New York Yankees) in 2002 and Dustin Pedroia (Boston Red Sox) in 2016; Miranda broke that record with 12 consecutive hits.

Miranda was struck out in the bottom of the sixth on a fly ball to left field, failing to reach a hit in 13 consecutive at-bats.

“I don’t know what to say. I can’t believe I made this record,” Miranda told MLB.com after the game. “I’m just happy to be a part of history.

On the day Miranda achieved the record, Minnesota won 9-3.

Miranda, in his third year in the major leagues, has yet to reach the required plate appearances this year, but is batting .328 (79 hits in 241 at-bats). 해외 카지노 사이트
