No hits and 5 stolen bases, is this really possible?’
No matter how fast your feet are and how good your base runner is, you have to go out on base to record a stolen base. To go on base, you have to go on base. You have to hit or get 4 balls. Of course, there is one more way. If an error or beast choice comes up, you can step on the press.
An unbelievable record of ‘no hits and 5 stolen bases’ came out in the minor leagues of American professional baseball. Ian Lewis (20), a prospect for the Single A Jupiter Hemerheads under the Miami Marlins of the Major League (MLB), recorded 5 stolen bases in one game. More interestingly, he stole the bases five times without recording a single hit. 메이저놀이터
Lewis started on the 17th (Korean time) in a Single A away game against the St. Lucie Mets. He hit the ground as Jupiter’s second batter and second baseman. He entered the plate a total of five times and did not produce a hit. He only got on base once, with one walk. However, he stole 5 bases and helped the team win 4-3.
In his first at-bat in the first inning, he was powerless with a floating ball. In the second at-bat in the third inning, the second baseman grounded, but an error came out and he stepped on first base. And he used his quick feet to steal second base. Then, in the 5th inning, he occupied first base with a shortstop error. He stole second base again, and after stepping on third base with the subsequent batter’s base hit, he homered on a double steal with Jake DeLeo.
In the 7th inning, he walked and succeeded in getting on base for the only time on the day. He stepped on base in a two-out-first base situation, and attempted a double steal with second base runner Jordan McCants to stand on second base. He created his fifth stolen base of the game. Lewis entered his final at-bat in the ninth inning. He threw a fly ball out and left a regrettable game with no hits. However, he achieved a record of ‘no hits and 5 stolen bases’.
On the other hand, since 1901, there has been only one person in the major leagues who has recorded 5 stolen bases without a single hit in a game. That’s ‘The Great Sword’ Ricky Henderson. Henderson went 0-5 with the Oakland Athletics on July 30, 1989. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2009.
