While the Pittsburgh Pirates suffered a crushing defeat, Korean major leaguer Bae Ji-hwan (24) continued to hit for two consecutive games.
Bae Ji-hwan started as the 6th hitter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) away game against the San Francisco Giants held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California on the 30th (Korean time) and recorded 1 hit in 4 at-bats. After the game against the Colorado Rockies on the 10th, the batting order, which had only played 7 or less batters, rose to 6th, and also hit in 2 consecutive games following the match against the Seattle Mariners the previous day (2 hits in 4 at bats). The season batting average remained at 0.275 (39 hits in 142 at-bats).
His first two at-bats came off as bum-hitters. Bae Ji-hwan, who entered the first at-bat in the top of the second inning when there were no runners out, stepped back with a grounder from the pitcher, and then grounded to second base in the second at-bat in the top of the fifth inning as the lead batter.
He only added a hit in his third at-bat. In the beginning of the 7th inning, when the team chased 2-6, Bae Ji-hwan had a third chance with second base unharmed and scored a heavy hit. He attacked and hit opponent starter Anthony Desclafani’s low slider.토토사이트
Bae Ji-hwan’s hit became the link that led to the score. 1 company and 1st and 3rd base opportunities continued, and when Rodolfo Castro’s follow-up hitter grounded in the infield, 3rd base runner Connor Joe stepped on the home and added a run. Bae Ji-hwan advanced to third base on an infield grounder by Josh Palacios, but failed to score a follow-up hit.
Pittsburgh, which seemed to be chasing, soon gave up a large number of runs and collapsed. Pittsburgh, who had been chasing 2 points at the beginning of the 7th, gave up 8 points at the end of the 7th. Cody Bolton, who took the mound at the start of the inning, gave up five runs with five consecutive hits, including Patrick Bailey’s two-run home run. After two outs, he allowed 3 walks and 2 doubles, giving up three more points and collapsing. Pittsburgh only chased one run with Jack Suwinsky’s home run in the ninth inning, but could not narrow the score any more and lost. Bae Ji-hwan also finished the at-bat on the day by withdrawing with a ground ball to first base in the ninth inning without a runner.
