That is the average amount of pitches per plate appearance for a top team in the mlb (stats from 2018) with the highest average this season being 4.57 by Rhys Hoskins.
I only mention this for the reason that in both online and offline modes, in this game, there is a inordinate amount of fouling balls off and extending out what clearly shouldn't be extended.
Maybe if pitching input mattered more and you could actually strike people out, this game would be the simulation that some people think it is.
Btw, I didn't just lose a game, I'm grinding conquest maps and I'm sick of constantly having at bats go nine, ten or even more pitches. Don't even get me started with online and the ridiculous out of fouled off balls.
That is all.
