Lou Gehrig 4xbasehits

SDS

Do anybody have any tips how to beat this challenge. I try at least 50 times and still can’t complete it. I came close a few times within 1 extra basehit

SDS

The key is to be early. But not very early. Perfect perfects got me line outs to deep center. Use Shibes short porch in RF. Sit middle to low middle

SDS

Thanks so much for your insight

SDS

Man, I have started off 3-3 multiple times and than one at bat I flub and another they give me nothing to hit.....only moment giving me a challenge, somehow got Yelich done on first try , but this one blows

Like you I knocked out Yelich quick. The starting pitcher in the Gehrig mission is the easiest to take deep, like you, I hit 3 in a row a number of times then didn't get anything decent to hit after that. Finally I hit a line drive to the right fielder that he flubbed and I made it to 2nd and it counted, that's how I completed it.

I'd say the best bet is to get 3 against the starter and then hope for the best, sit high and inside, Gehrig destroys inside pitches.

SDS

I'm really looking forward to getting Gehrig btw, loved his swing. I'll have Ruth and Thomas coming off the bench I think. Now that I have these 2 missions done it's just a time thing. At least with conquest I can sub in different guys to try them out on my squad against HOF or Legend so it's good practice, and I'm 1/3 through the Showdown and it doesn't seem so bad.

The worst part of the Gehrig and potentially Yelich missions is not getting anything to hit. I'd estimate that really, only 1 out of 5 of these starts are actually winnable, 4 out of 5 you've lost before you start as you just won't get enough good pitches to hit.

SDS

That’s it, 80% of the time you don’t have a real chance in that moment.....

The other moments have been pretty easy for me. Beat Rivera second or third time, beat Pearson first try, got the strike outs with no homer win second try ( and luckily that homer was in second inning so easy non rage start over ). I don’t expect the Legend win will be bad, so once I get the 4 XBH, pretty much done as Showdown complete and Conquest 80% done.

I got Yelich done in 2 tries. I've stopped counting the Gehrig moment...

SDS

Finally beat it I would sit high and outside and just track the ball down and in, hit 4 bombs

Yep. Be early and bounce it off that wall.

SDS

I just beat this tonight. I think I spent about 2 hours on it..... I must of had 3 XBH like 12 times couldn’t get that 4th one until I was dog tired and pissed off apparently....

SDS

The first pitcher you face in that mission is easy to hit. The next 2 are a little tougher and Trevino was the hardest to me.
I sat middle up, stay away from the low stuff especially with runners on, unless your sure you can get lift on ball. Don't take walks, swing to foul off bad pitches on 3-0 counts.

SDS

Finally got it to finish moments. Almost done with conquest than I can stick a pin in Extreme

SDS

I’m stuck on this right now. My two gripes other than the terrible pitches are how easy it seems to pop up when I can clearly see pci coverage around the entire ball. It’s basically exactly where SDS said to have your pci with power hitters but there I am with a good/pop up.

Second and I will admit it’s tick tack but I’ve hit SO MANY singles up the middle or borderline liners in the gap that are singles and the CF will throw a perfect strike to 2b every time. Not once can you get lucky with an inaccurate throw to second. Yet my diamond fielders with better accuracy will misfire a good amount when a guy is pushing for two. Hmmm

SDS

The only time ive ever seen fielding urgency in this game is specifically in this Gehrig moment. The outfielders sure do seem like they are all aware you need extra base hits.....yet in regular games they are just there to collect their paycheck.

Last year a Middle low offspeed pitch was almost a guarantee no doubter. I would say almost all of my HR with him came by this.

Bro Laurino in CF is a diamond fielder out there. This fool snatches the ball and launches it to 2nd in .1 seconds every single time.....

Ok. Tried this just now for the first time and did it lol. Only one thing. I GOT 7 AB TO DO IT!!! My team put up like 22 runs, and after failing in the 8th to get it I got another AB in the 9th to get it done.
