MIA Araes’ four-game hitting streak….401 in 78 games.

Miami Marlins infielder Luis Arajes (24) maintained his 4-for-4 batting average.

Araúez started at second base and went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks, two RBIs and a run scored in the Marlins’ home game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Rondipo Park on Friday (May 25). After helping his team to a 4-3 victory, Araúez’s season batting average dropped slightly from .402 to .401 (110-for-274), but he maintained his coveted .440 on-base percentage. The .401 mark ranks first in the big leagues, well ahead of Ronald Acuna Jr. (Atlanta Braves – 0.328)카지노.

The last player in Major League Baseball (MLB) history to hit .401 was Ted Williams in 1941. Williams batted .406 (185 for 456) that year. Since then, many players have attempted to hit .406, but all have fallen short.

The game against Pittsburgh on May 25 was Miami’s 78th game of the season. According to MLB.com, the official MLB website, the highest batting average in a team’s 78th game of the season since 1941 was .408 by Larry Walker (then with the Colorado Rockies) in 1997. That was followed by Rod Curry (.407 for the Minnesota Twins) in 1977, John Olerud (.405 for the Toronto Blue Jays) in 1993, and Andres Galarraga (.403 for the Colorado Rockies) in 1993. Araúez’s 0.401 is good for sixth in the category. The last player after Williams to maintain a .401 batting average was George Brett (Kansas City Royals) in 1980 for 134 games.

Araes, a native of Venezuela, made his big league debut in 2019 with the Minnesota Twins. In his first season, he batted .334 (109-for-326) and showed off his ability to make solid contact. In his fourth year, he hit .316 (173-for-547) in 144 games, leading the American League (AL) in batting.

Araúez’s career big league batting average is .328.
