It is a losing streak that failed to prevent Bae Ji-hwan’s good hitting feeling.
Bae Ji-hwan started as a center fielder in the 2023 MLB home game against the Oakland Athletics held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on the 8th (Korean time) and recorded 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 run in 3 at-bats.메이저놀이터
Bae Ji-hwan produced a hit in his first at-bat.
Bae Ji-hwan, who started as the lead batter in the third inning, hit a low-cut fastball from Oakland starter Hogan Harris and sent a slow ball to the shortstop. Afterwards, he sprinted and recorded an infield hit.
However, he retired after two outs as he was out at second base when Brian Reynolds grounded second baseman.
In the bottom of the 4th inning, he was 2nd out and 2nd base on the second at-bat, shortstop grounded, and in the bottom of the 7th, as the lead batter, the shortstop hit only a straight hit.
In the bottom of the ninth, his last at-bat, he came out as the lead batter and picked out a walk.
He then reached third base when Andrew McCutchen’s third baseman grounded, and scored on Reynolds’ timely hit.
Bae Ji-hwan’s season batting average, which had a three-game hitting streak, rose slightly from 0.275 to 0.276.
Despite Bae Ji-hwan’s performance, Pittsburgh suffered a 5-9 loss to Oakland.
Pittsburgh starting pitcher Roanzi Contreras gave up 7 runs to Oakland’s batting line from the first inning, which was the factor in the loss.
In addition, Pittsburgh, which recently fell into the swamp of two consecutive losses, recorded a season record of 32 wins and 29 losses.
