‘Strike on the rise’ Arena also achieved ‘8th 1000 RBIs in active career’
Nolan Arenado (32, St. Louis Cardinals), who has recently shown an amazing sense of hitting, stepped on the 1,000th RBI mark in his personal career.
St. Louis had a home game against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 18th (Korean time) at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
On this day, Arenado started as St. Louis’ 4th and 3rd baseman and recorded 1 hit and 1 RBI in 4 at-bats. In the first inning when the score was 0-0, Corbin Burns scored an RBI with an infield hit by third baseman.
As a result, Arenado added 1 RBI to 999 RBIs until the last game, recording 1000 RBIs in his career. It has been 11 years since his major league debut.
His 1,000th career RBI is the eighth active player. Above Arenado is Andrew McCutchen, and the current record for most RBIs is held by Miguel Cabrera.
Also, his 1,000 RBIs are the 301st in major league history. Tied with Daryl Strawberry. Right above the arena are the likes of George Bell and Justin Upton.
Arenado suffered a major slump last month. He fell far short of his expectations, with a batting average of .239, an on-base percentage of .281 and an OPS of .600 in 28 games.안전놀이터
However, Arenado has fully regained his sense of hitting this month. He’s already hit 6 homers, is batting .300 and has a 1.000 OPS.
Meanwhile, St. Louis won 3-0 thanks to starter Matthew Liberatore’s 5 scoreless innings, and Arenado’s and Paul De’Jong’s RBIs.
