I started off 14-0, made it to Wild Card and have went 6-6 since entering WC. I can't hit for some reason, and the difficulty doesn't go up until the next round. I'm massively late on everything it seems like. The only dude I am getting hits with are Ichiro or Machado. In my final game for the night I struck out 18 times...tonight I plan on getting into batting practice on hall of fame for 15-20 minutes before entering online. But Jesus last night was a tough.

Pretty much the same for me lol, I lost a game because I had 2 fly balls in a row where my fielder stood under that ball and it went through him. Plus I’m not sure what’s going on, but hitting wise I’ve struggled the last 2 days hitting XBH, just weak singles.

Yeah man they really need to fix the problem of outfielders not locking on to fly balls. By chance, do you pre-load your throws with outfielders? I literally do on every flyball even if no one is on and I have not run into this problem as often. 

I've also read others stating that pre-loading throws may somehow lock outfielders on to the ball...but could also be confirmation bias lol.

But yeah, the most frustrating aspect so far is the RNG in good/good "squared up" hit results resulting in continuous lineouts. Meanwhile, buddy over here would swing at a ball in the dugout and when he does make contact, the game says "here's a bloop hit for your struggles".

Yeah agreed on the last part haha. This same guy used directional and lunged at every pitch but somehow every swing was a check swing. I stil struck him out like 15 times, but he literally got 3 runs because of check swing walks, and 2 fly balls that my fielders were standing under and missed. Then I’m sitting here trying to figure out signature kershaw, and every time I load the bases, I hit a line drive at someone or a missile groundball double play. Super frustrating lol.

Slowly learning to roll with the punches and not let a tough defeat impact how I play the next RS game. I still think 19 is awesome and will play up until the launch of 20.

My goal this year is to end with a .300+ online average....oh, and to get Griffey
