Odubel Herrera Gives A New Meaning To The Phrase ‘The Golden Sombrero’

uspresswire-phillies-odubel-herrera

I believe it was the great Rickey Henderson who came up with the term “The Golden Sombrero” to refer to a player striking out four times in one game. Well yesterday Philadelphia Phillies Odubel Herrera one upped that by going 0 for 5 and striking out all five times. This feat doesn’t happen too often but it has happened enough times to be coined “The Platinum Sombrero.”

Let’s see what Twitter thought of Herrera’s tough day at the plate.

 

The last time a Phillies player did it was when Pat 'The Bat' Burrell struck out five times in September 2008. The Phillies won the World Series that year, of course, so maybe this is an omen. Judging by how the current Phillies team looks and where they are at in the standings, I'm going to say that 2008 was just a coincidence.
