Splitsville: Eric Nielsen in HWBL
Whether he is facing southpaws or right-handed pitchers, Nielsen has not been affected. Most of his at bats, however, have come against left-handed pitching. He has 13 total at bats against southpaws, and is hitting .308 off them. The right-handed batter is hitting 2-for-6 against right-handed pitching. Both of his strikeouts have come against lefties.
As expected in such a league, Nielsen has been batting in different spots of the lineup. He has seen four games in the sixth hole, and is batting .444 in 9 at bats during those games. In two games in the cleanup hole he's batting 0-for-5. He also has been at bats in the seventh and ninth holes.
Most of his damage has come with runners on base, or runners in scoring position. When leading off an inning, Nielsen is just 1-for-6, and with the bases empty he's just 1-for-10. With runners in scoring position, Nielsen is having lots of success accumulating four hits in six at bats. With the same situation, but two outs, he has recorded two hits in three at bats, and with runners on base he is hitting 5-for-9.
In conclussion, Nielsen is having success very early in Hawaii, and is among the league leaders in several stats.
