Xfinity X1 Report: Brandon Belt Snaps MLB Record Of Longest At-Bat

In a west coast a match up between the Los Angeles Angels and San Francisco Giants, bay area slugger Brandon Belt had the longest at bat in Major League Baseball history, seeing 21 pitches in all.

APIt took Angels starter Jaime Barria 21 pitches to finally retire Giants infielder Brandon Belt for the first out of Sunday's game.

Before the epic showdown Sunday, the longest plate appearance took place at Jacobs Field on June 26, 1998, when Bartolo Colon bested Rickey Gutierrez in a 20-pitch at-bat, eventually striking him out on a fastball. "I was really exhausted after that", Simmons said.

"I wasn't going to give it up and the pitcher wasn't either", Belt said after.

It did not. Barria threw a changeup that Belt stroked into right field for a hit. "It made for a good battle".

N Korea promises no more nuclear or missile tests
Moon said he saw the possibility of a peace agreement, or even global aid for the North's economy, if it denuclearizes. President Trump tweeted that progress is being made for all - as North Korea said it will stop all nuclear tests.

Belt fouled off 11 straight pitches before flying out. When a tacit acknowledgment just is between them, Belt did acknowledge he knew how he sensed. Belt finished the game 3-5 with two runs scored in a 4-2 victory for the Giants. In fact, as the at-bat unfolded, they seemed to become even more resolute. Again, in one at bat. Barria was then removed from the game after he had thrown 77 pitches. "Like, this can't be happening", Maldonado said.

Barria was charged with two runs on five hits and a walk in two-plus innings.

Belt also homered in the fifth inning in a nine-pitch at-bat versus Blake Parker and singled on the first pitch from Jim Johnson in the seventh.

The Angels' Shohei Ohtani was the DH and had a single in four trips, and struck out twice.
