: "I'm two-for-two"
: Could someone please explain the meaning? I don't have more context, but when I Google I find this phrase used this way (yet the meaning still does not become clear).

It's from baseball jargon. You got two hits in two at-bats. You've had two opportunities, and succeeded both times.

In baseball, you could be one-for-one, three-for-five, and so on. One could also "pull an oafer" (that is, go oh-for-whatever in a game.)
