Although it is still early in the season, Patrick Wisdom (32, Chicago Cubs) has booked a career high by co-leading the home run.
The Chicago Cubs had an away game against the Oakland Athletics at the Coliseum in Oakland, California, USA on the 18th (Korean time).
On this day, the Chicago Cubs won 10-1 with 20 hits and 10 points, including Cody Bellinger (28) getting his first 5 hits in his career.
Among them, Wisdom was the most outstanding player. He had 3 hits, 4 RBIs and 2 runs, including 2 home runs, leading the team to a 9-run victory.
Wisdom recorded a batting average of 0.288, 8 home runs, 13 RBIs, 13 runs, 15 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.351 OPS of 1.139 in 14 games of the season until this day.
This is tied with Pete Alonso (29) for the all-time home run lead in the major leagues. Wisdom’s most home runs in a season was 28 in 2021. It has already reached 28.6%.
Of course, it is not yet known how long this momentum will last. But so far, breaking his own record for most home runs in a season is very likely.
Also, if Wisdom adds two more home runs in the remainder of April, he will set a new personal home run record for a single month. Wisdom’s monthly home run record is 9. 안전놀이터
Wisdom is a player with excellent power who can overcome bad contact and good luck. As a result, he can increase his home runs rapidly even by slightly increasing his contact.
Until last year, his career batting average and on-base percentage were only 0.217 and 0.301. But this season he’s hitting .288 and .351.
Attention is focusing on whether Wisdom, who is at the forefront of his early home runs, will be able to set his career high by breaking his own monthly home run record.
