English term or phrase: a straight (in baseball)
The ball is a straight if the pitcher hits any...

¿Es una bola directa o qué nombre podría tener esto en el béisbol?

Gracias,

Carmen

Spanish translation:Strike
Explanation:
This is the right spelling. It's a ball thrown by the pitcher which crosses over the plate at a certain height. Three of them before you hit the ball or get first base via four "balls", and you're "out" for that turn at bat...

more info. needed


Explanation:
I have been a baseball fan and scorekeeper for many years and have never heard the word "straight" used as a noun. I believe the "línea" in the previous answer refers to what is called a "line drive" in English.

What kind of context is this? Is it maybe a game about baseball? Maybe more information would help; the reference you've included really doesn't make much sense in and of itself.
