Tips on getting 3 XBH with Mark Reynolds?

SDS

I am really struggling with this Moment. Anyone have any advice?

SDS

sit high FB and just restart if you dont get an XBH in first AB

SDS

Hit 3 dingers on three pitches!

Elevate and celebrate!

SDS

Yep. Wait on the high heat and adjust to a hanging knucklecurve. Time it up and go deep. Don't get frustrated and you'll get it.

SDS

Go oppo with nobody on if you really can’t hit a HR with him

SDS

dont play it...

SDS

Took me forever. Of course they had to put it on rookie to make it harder. Unrealistic pitch speeds and a limited range on the PCI made me have to take like 40 min to do this one. All the others one try.

I agree. I cannot time pitches well on Rookie.

SDS

I am cursed. I finally got home runs on the first two ABs.
Third AB? Hit by pitch.
Fourth AB? 3-0 count, forced to swing at horrible pitch and pop out.

And pitches anywhere on the edge of the strike zone come off the bat like a wet noodle. So much easier to do these hitting moments on All Star.

Took a little longer than the rest, but eventually did it. No real secret, just get your pitches and any contact will result in a HR.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who struggles with Rookie hitting on moments. I'll put every single ball in play but not where I want them.

Yup that sounds about right. Best of luck to you, hopefully right as you're about to give up things will fall in your favor. Maybe your squad will even tee off on the pitcher or push it to extras for ya, I [censored] love when that happens. Though I [censored] hate when it does happen and I still can't get it LOL

SDS

Power swing and hit 3 dongs. The outfield is too fast so gappers get run down every time. If the pitcher doesn’t groove one in 1st at bat they never will, just restart and find a better instance.

SDS

If having issues, he has a huge shift. If you can hit it to right field (swing late) its a double just about everytime

SDS

🎶 Just keep swinging🎶 🐟

I just did the one where you need two XBH against the Yankees on All Star level. Hit two homers on three pitches. First try. Now, back to the Rookie level one, for hour #2. 🙂

@Serafim42-zaphod
You’ve gotta sit on high pitches or perfectly middle knee pitches. I haven’t hit any pitches other than letters or knees. I completed all the moments for him but that’s where he hits them best

Good tip. I've been using directional swing to upper cut to left. If the first at bat does not go my way I quit. Maybe I should just power swing, like you say.
