The actions of Bravos de Margarita and Navegantes del Magallanes are very positive during the fourth week of actions in the 2021-2022 tournament of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League (LVBP).
In the journey that goes from November 9 to 14, both teams played for the same mark of 4 wins by 2 losses, which allows the islands to maintain first place in the standings (13-7) already the Turks move up to third place (11-7).
They were the only ones who played for the winning record, being much better than the rest of the six teams, Tigres, Cardenales, Águilas and Tiburones with 3-3 played for .500, while Caracas and Anzoátegui closed on a negative note, 2-4.
Margarita and Magellan in numbers
When detailing the elemental statistics of the ball, we found that both Braves and Navigators based their success on the success of their offenses.
The Islanders hit .261 (207-54) with 8 homers, 32 RBIs and 43 scoring lines; For its part, the blue team was even more productive, hitting 220-66 for a .300 team average, with 11 homers, 45 RBIs and 47 hits from the plate.
This excellent production comes to represent a balm for them, because their pitching corps (like the rest of the league) was inefficient.
Margarita had a group ERA of 5.56, as a result of the 34 clean annotations that were given to them in 55 stages, in total they allowed 38 runs, they also yielded 25 passports and prescribed 38 chocolates; those of the Magellan were only slightly better, allowing 30 well-deserved lines (32 in total), in 53 innings for an ERA of 5.09. Similarly, they walked 21 and struck out 36.
Despite this obviously unstable performance of the arms, Neo-Spartans and Carabobeños manage to stay in the third and fourth box of collective effectiveness among the eight teams with 5.08 and 5.11 respectively.
The League’s ERA is 5.15.
