Great hitting, but weak pitching. This constant has sunk the Guadalajara Mariachi in the last places of the Mexican Baseball League (LMB) after the First Round of the tournament.
They are the fourth best collective batting in the entire League (.316)but on the other hand they are the second worst pitching by teams with an unfair average of 7.95 runs clean allowed.
mariachis is the ninth with the most home runs of the season with a total of 91, although these have been of little use as they are also the third team to which they have connected the most homers with 78.
As far as racing production is concerned, the story is the same. The ninth Tapatia has the fourth highest figure in the League with 333 runs scoredbut they are also the fourth team with the most runs allowed with 364.
Thus, due to the lack of solidity on the mound, the Mariachis have been constantly silenced, closing the First Round in the penultimate place in the North Zone with negative mark of 20-28including six losses in their last seven games.
Luis Sardinas and Anthony Garcia They have been the soul of Mariachis on offense to keep the team in contention.
Of all the League, Sardines He is the player who has hit the most doubles so far this season. The Venezuelan has reached second base 21 times and also has the best batting average in the team from Guadalajara, hitting .402 in this first round.
Anthony for his part He leads the ninth Guadalajara in home runs (13), in runs produced (43) and is also the one who has rung the register the most times (43).
To aspire to success in the hot ball, a solid and constant pitching is a fundamental piece in any team. In Mariachis they still have pending accounts.
Henry Rye He has been the pitcher with the best numbers on the team. He is seventh in the entire League in strikeouts (49) and is 3-2 for a winning record, but he posts a not-so-honorable average of 5.53 ERA 53.2 innings pitched.
Contrary to what the manager constantly pointed out Sergio Omar GastelumMariachi streamers have consistently evaded the strike zone, being the second team that has delivered more walks this season with a total of 230.
The competition system is flexible. Six of the nine teams from the North Zone will be able to advance to the Playoffs and Mariachis will have the entire Second Round to correct the path.
Despite his losing mark, the team from Guadalajara is only two games away from the Playoffs zonewith great possibilities of reversing the situation.
This weekend there will be a break to make room for the All-Star Game.
Mariachis will return to activity the following week with six consecutive home games. From Tuesday to Thursday they will play against Guerreros de Oaxaca, and then face Generales de Durango.
