Brandon Belt breaks Major League Baseball all-time record with 21-pitch at-bat

Brandon Belt reacts Sunday afternoon, after hitting on a ball during his 21-pitch at Bat that is first-inning.

Brandon Belt hung in for an epic 21-pitch at-bat before flying out, but later homered to lead Johnny Cueto and the San Francisco Giants over the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 on Sunday. He forced Barria, who finished the first inning with a whopping 49 pitches, to throw eight more pitches to him in the second inning before singling.

All told, his at-bat took 12 minutes.

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

I can't confirm anything, but I believe the REM song "Losing My Religion" was originally written about a 20-pitch At Bat that didn't end in a hit.

The left handed Belt peppered the crowd with abundant souvenirs including two prolonged fouls down the lineup.

Barria loaded the bases with no outs in the third before making way for Noe Ramirez.

Barria was taken out after the second inning and a 77-pitch count.

He is tied with Bryce Harper and Charlie Blackmon for the most homers in Major League Baseball behind Mike Trout.

The last Giant to hit a homer in four straight games was Hunter Pence in 2013.

Los Angeles had runners on the corners with two outs in the ninth before Hunter Strickland got Kinsler to fly out for his third save in five chances. Joe Panik scored on Buster Posey's double-play ball and Evan Longoria followed with a two-run homer, his fourth.

Monday will be Buehler's first major league start. Not after he fell behind 1-2 when swinging through a slider.
