Alex Bergman collides with another couple in Astros win against White Sox – MLB.com

Chicago – the wayAlex BergmanHe was swinging bats last month, reviving thoughts about the 2019 season, when Bregman spearheaded one of the best attacks in Major League history and won the MLS Player of the Year award.

Injuries to his hamstrings in 2020 and quad and wrist in 21 led to poor habits in his mechanics, which Bregman worked tirelessly to correct. Still not where he wants to be, but a healthy Bregman continued his lead in the second half by going 4-6 with four runs scored, two doubles, two homers and six RBIs in the Astros. 21-5 The White Sox bombed Thursday at a guaranteed rate field.

“I know everyone always says 2018 or 2019, but I think every year is different, and certainly I try to get back to the mechanics that I have during those two years,” he said. “The previous two, mechanically, weren’t the same. My front thigh was wide open and was making me spin and cut the baseball instead of staying in it and being able to drive it. We’ve worked really hard this year and a lot of people have helped me work in the cage. It’s been a good few months past to be more consistent.”

Bregman and defensive back Chas McCormick (3 for 6, five RBIs) combined to lead in 11 runs as the Astros tied a club record by 25 strokes. 21 tied runs ranked second in the club’s history, falling behind the 23 goals they scored against the Orioles on August 10, 2019. This was also the only time the Astros scored 25 goals in a match.

“You have to mark the place, and I didn’t,” said Lucas Giolito, a White Sox writer. “Lots of fast balls trying to get in and missing the middle, things like that – and you didn’t miss them. He gave up a lot.”

Astros player Kyle Tucker and catcher Christian Vazquez went 4-6, joining Bergman in the four-stroke club.

“We made a statement. We made a strange statement,” McCormick said. “We have a good attack. They are a good team. We got a little upset because they hit us the first and second time. We got a good win [Wednesday]And today, we wanted to make sure we didn’t miss out on the series. We did a good job batting and it showed how our offense is today.”

Here’s how hot Burjuman has been lately:

Since July 21 (27 matches): .343/ .404/ .667, Seven Homer, 26 RBIs, 11 Walks, 11 Strikes

Since 2 August (16 matches): .397/ .471/ .776, five homers, 17 RBIs, nine walks, five hits

Since August 9 (10 matches): .432/ .512/1.000, five Homer, 16 RBIs, six walks, two hits

Last year, Bergman was not the same at the table. He has missed 58 games with a quad injury and scored a 777 OPS with 12 hurdles and 55 RBI in 91 games. He had had surgery on his right wrist, which also affected him.

“Sort of the last few years, mechanically, I haven’t been where I wanted to be,” he said. “Today was better. Today was a really good day doing the mechanics and our team did a really good job putting together good rackets.”

After Bregman was knocked out on a 3-2 floor that was under the hit zone in the first half—leading to head coach Alex Cintron’s dismissal—Brigman followed him twice in the third, and two runs. Homer in the fourth and Homer in the sixth. He added a double in the ninth for the White Sox, second baseman Josh Harrison, who set the final frame.

“I won’t say anything, because I don’t want to be fined,” Bregman said of the call. “I definitely take a lot of pride in swinging shots and taking balls. I thought I did well that day.”

Dusty Baker, director of the Astros, said, “I can’t tell you what I was saying. My mom doesn’t like it. We all thought it was low.”

Bregman came in in August hitting .242, but now hits .264 with 18 homers, 72 RBIs and .839 OPS in 115 games. It looks like the 2019 Burjuman is back.

“When Bergman goes, man, he’s been hot for a while,” McCormick said. “I am happy for him. He is doing a great job and he is locked up every day. He is healthy and plays every day. We need him there every night because he is a very influential player.”
