weak/jammed hits

SDS

Anyone have any tips on ways to combat this if there even is a way. I don't give up a ton of solid contact but I give up a huge amount of bloop hits that seem to be impossible to defend against. Super discouraging to make a good pitch only for someone to get rewarded 8 times in a game for bad contact. Do I just have to pitch to contact and hope people dont send it to the moon?

SDS

It's gonna happen, not much to do about it. I don't mind it as much when it happens to be honest, it happens in real baseball all the time. Yeah it's frustrating if you lose a game this way, but that's baseball.

SDS

What mode?? ranked?? vs cpu??

SDS

Unfortunately, that's just in the games mechanics. Played a game yesterday where a guy got 4 very late bloop hits perfectly out of reach. Then you try to dot the outside and you give up early tanks.

SDS

I thought this guy liked getting jammed.

Just keep making those good pitches. It’ll even out.

SDS

Poor contact is what you want to get,what you are trying to get,and what you are getting.
For those that have enough power to force weak contact into the OF anyway,i can see only one alternative. throw chase pitches instead, but then you risk walks if they dont chase.

I don’t know why he decided to block me, he was wide open the other day.

Sometimes you just have to let people spread their legs and fly.

This is so true. I hope he travels well now, I mean the path he is taking is wider than the Eisenhower tunnel.

yeah hitting is [censored] this year but at least its not as bad as the servers

SDS

I give them up too, especially seeing eye grounders but it means my pitch worked and as long as they don’t do it 3 times in a row , it is what is. Though normally if they hit two Texas leaguers or dribblers for hits, I expect them to yack next at bat especially in late innings. Seems like a theme in my games

DUDE! this happens to me all the time. anywhere from the 6th-8th innings ill give up back to back jammed bloop hits. Next batter will come up and foul off 6 pitches on a 0-2 count then hit a nuke

SDS

If anyone wants to be on the giving end of bloop hits rather than the receiving end, I'm using Korey Lee at catcher right now and he's been a bloop hit machine.
