Cant Hit

The graphics are incredible. However, I can't hit or score runs. I had a couple of games in which I scored 7 runs but other than that I either lose 7 - 1 or I win 2 - 1. I don't know how many times I hit the ball hard and thought that I timed it right only to hit a slow grounder and roll into a double play to stop a rally. The worst part is that when I would push L3 to see if I had timed my swing right it would say that my timing was perfect and that the my contact was in my wheelhouse. I don't know what the problem is but I think that problem needs to be fixed for next years game. I am not asking to score 15 runs a game or anything but if I time my swing right and hit the ball on the sweet part of the bat that should NEVER result in a slow ground ball to second base. Also I have read the directions over and over again to see if I have read them wrong and still can not figure out to control the accuracy of my pitches. The pitchers almost never hit their spots. Espcially with back door sliders. For some reason they always hang. They never break. The just look like slower fastballs.

This game has great controls. I like the ease of hitting and pitching. It has auto fielding so you don't have to worry about your fielders like in a real game you can be the pitcher. Graphics have a wonderful look to them. Take this over 2k.
