Brandon Belt breaks Major League Baseball all-time record with 21-pitch at-bat

Adjust Comment Print

No pitcher has ever worked as hard as Jaime Barria did to retire Brandon Belt on Sunday afternoon at Angel Stadium.

Per Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, this broke the previous Major League Baseball record for pitches in an at-bat, originally set in 1998 in a battle between Ricky Gutierrez and Bartolo Colon. He had a 12-pitch at-bat that assisted the Yankees close out a game title 5 win within their division series from the Cleveland Indians last calendar year.

"When I'm in the field I hate it when a batter keeps fouling pitches off", he said.

It did not. Barria threw a changeup that Belt stroked into right field for a hit. "It made for a superior battle".

Belt fouled off 11 straight pitches before flying out.

He just knew he wasn't going to give in. Regardless of the end result that was fun to watch.

In the fifth inning, he became the first Giant since 2013 to hit a home run in four consecutive games, according to Andrew Baggarly of The Mercury News, as he hit a solo shot to right off Blake Parker. In all, forty pitches were seen by Belt.

Angels pitching coach Charles Nagy checked on Barria (1-1) after the long at-bat. "He didn't really hang anything except maybe a couple of pitches, but it was enough to throw me off and not get the barrel on the ball, so it was a tough at-bat".
