Aaron Judge‘s strikeout record didn’t hold up long.
It’s been a disaster of a World Series for the rookie. Bellinger entered the game 4-for-24 with 14 strikeouts against the Houston Astros, and started Game 7 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts – his sixth and seventh in a row.
Judge established his mark during the ALCS in 48 at-bats, snapping Alfonso Soriano’s record of 26 set in 2003. Bellinger needed 62 at-bats to set the new mark.
He struck out 146 times in 132 games during the regular season, while also clubbing 39 home runs.
