“Well, I didn’t come through for the team when I had the opportunities,” Gregorius admitted after the game. “Most of the game is on me. I was the one who failed, not the whole team.”
Sir Didi has only two hits in his final 22 at-bats including a walk and five strikeouts during a six-game span.
Most of his struggles may be attributed to the multiple surgeries he has endured over the previous seasons including Tommy John and also a finger injury, and a shoulder contusion suffered against the Dodgers back in August from a Clayton Kershaw pitch that drilled him.
One bright spot came in the ALDS against the Minnesota Twins during Game 2 when he found a pitch he liked and swatted a grand slam, essentially sealing a trip to the ALCS in the 8-2 rout of the Twins. But so far against the Astros, Didi only has been on base with a hit once in 12 total trips to the plate for an average of .083.
Game 4 of the ALCS is scheduled for Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.
