I have been having the absolute worst stretch of offense I can remember. Plugging away through the conquest map and numerous missions and for the life of me I can’t get my offense going. Seems everything I do is failing: press first pitch, only attack fastballs, sit u til 2 strikes, w/e….I’m fighting to get 1 run.
What do y’all do during a bad stretch? Also, what do you try to identify first with a pitcher: pitch type or location?
Take a Break, for whatever reason I see the ball a hella lot better.
Custom practice on one level up from where you're struggling and type of pitch and location to get timing down. For me it's sinker and heat inside on HOF.
Lastly approach is key. Get comfortable with 2 strikes. Just because I know a high inside fastball is coming doesn’t mean I need to swing at the first pitch. Instead, let it go if it's on the corner and wait for the pitcher to make a mistake.
Fatigue and confidence play a big role. Swinging strikes greatly increase confidence relative to taking a strike. Also, I can't confirm this and may be mistaken, but believe when you have 2 strikes the clutch attribute kicks in.
