Luis Robert Jr.’s HOME RUN in Washington set his personal record

On Monday, September 18, the Chicago White Sox teams faced off against the Washington Nationals and Luis Robert Jr. was one of the protagonists.

The game had no significance for either team heading into the postseason, as both were eliminated in the expected phase.

The top of the fifth inning was played when the board showed the hug with zero runs and two outs.

Cuban turned to right-hander Joan Adon and found two teammates running first and second base.

The opposing pitcher quickly attacked Luis Robert Jr., marking first strike with a fastball through the same center.

This didn’t faze Chicago’s star hitter, however, as he took advantage of Adon’s second pitch.

The fateful pitch for the pitcher was an 80 mph curve that ran through the bottom of the frame and was comfortably connected by Luis Robert.

The hit traveled at 104.8 miles per hour toward left field and over the fence to a distance of 398 feet.

This was the 36th home run for Luis Robert Jr., who also had three RBIs in one hit, breaking the tie in favor of the White Sox.

Additionally, he remains second in the entire American League in home runs, behind only phenom Shohei Ohtani, who has 44.

But that’s not all, with this hit Robert reached the total number of home runs in his first three seasons since his debut in 2020.

A fact that particularly highlights this campaign as his best MLB season by far.

To the point that he is a clear contender for the American League MVP award.

To date in 2023, Luis Robert Jr. has 139 hits in 530 at-bats.

Among these connections, 36 home runs, 35 doubles and a triple stand out, and he also drove in 78 runs and scored 86 points, which corresponds to an offensive line of .262/.314/.538 (AVG/OBP/SLG).

Without further ado, enjoy the hit.
