Pittsburgh Pirates Bae Ji-hwan (24) recorded a hit in two games.
On the 16th (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan started as the 8th hitter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League Chicago Cubs away game held at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, USA, and recorded 1 hit and 1 run in 2 at-bats. Bae Ji-hwan, who played as a pinch hitter the previous day and recorded no hits in one at-bat, increased his batting average from 0.270 to 0.272 with a hit that day.
The hit came from the first at-bat. Bae Ji-hwan, who started as the lead batter in the top of the third inning, scored a hit to the left against Cubs starter Marcus Stroman. Bae Ji-hwan, who advanced to third base when Jason DeLay hit, scored the first point when Tucupita Makano hit at the right time.
In the top of the 4th inning, Bae Ji-hwan, who was hit for the second time at bat with no runners out, pushed Strowman’s slider and hit the ball to left-center. However, the multi-hit was canceled due to Cubs left fielder Ian Happ’s diving catch.토토사이트
Bae Ji-hwan was replaced by pinch hitter Rodolfo Castro in the 7th inning when Pittsburgh trailed 2-7, and finished the game.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh lost 2-7 to the Cubs, giving up five big innings in the fifth inning. Pittsburgh, which recorded three consecutive losses, recorded 34 wins and 33 losses in the season, maintaining first place in the National League Central Division, but the 50% win rate (0.507) was in danger of collapsing. The Milwaukee Brewers (34-34, win rate 0.500), second in the same district, was allowed to chase by 0.5 games.
