This day in baseball: Sewell strikes out

During the 1930 season, Indians infielder Joe Sewell struck out a total of three times in 353 at-bats.  Two of those strikeouts came on May 26, 1930, facing Pat Caraway of the White Sox during the second game of a doubleheader.  Nevertheless, Cleveland won the game, 5-2.

    His personal horrible day at the plate is no big deal for today’s free swingers!

    Reminds me JR Towles not hitting many home runs, maybe 10 in his four years with Astros, but hitting two off Pedro Martinez.
