Promising prospect Jackson Holiday hit his first hit in 4 debut games and 14 at-bats.

Jackson Holiday (20, Baltimore Orioles), who is considered the best prospect in the Major League Baseball (MLB), finally reported his first hit.

Holiday recorded his first hit since his debut with a hit to right field in the bottom of the 7th inning in a game against the Milwaukee Brewers held at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland on the 15th (Korean time).

Jackson, the son of seven-time All-Star Matt Holiday, was selected by Baltimore with the first overall pick in the 2022 rookie draft.

Last year, in the minor league, he showed outstanding talent from the rookie league and was promoted to Triple A.

And finally, on the 11th, he made his debut in a visiting game against the Boston Red Sox with great interest from the American media, but he only gave up no hits in four at-bats.

Holiday had gone 0-hit in 11 at-bats and struck out 7 in 3 games through the 13th.

Even in the home game against Milwaukee that day, the start was not good.

Holiday, who was invariably used as the ninth batter and second baseman, struck out on a swing in his first at-bat in the second inning and struck out on a looking strike in his second at-bat in the fifth inning.

However, in the third at-bat in the bottom of the 7th inning, when Baltimore was down 3-4, he got the eagerly awaited hit.

Holiday, who came to bat at first base with no outs, caught Milwaukee reliever Abner Uribe’s powerful sinker that reached 159.8 km and recorded a hit that passed between first and second basemen and rolled toward right field.

It was his first hit in 14 at-bats in 4 games in his debut.

Milwaukee, who had the opportunity to reach first and second base with no outs, came up with a follow-up hit to make it 5-4, and added one run in the bottom of the eighth inning to win 6-4.

Holiday also came to bat in the bottom of the 8th inning, but was caught by a grounder to first base and recorded 1 hit in 4 at-bats on the day.

His season batting average is 0.67 with 1 hit in 15 at-bats.

Nevertheless, local media such as showed high expectations by covering the news of Holiday’s first hit as the main news. 토토사이트
