It had to be evaluated as “the black hole of other ships.” The feeling of hitting was so low. Did this harsh criticism stimulate Bae Ji-hwan (24, Pittsburgh)? He wielded a strong blow and gave the team a great victory.
On the 20th (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan started as the 7th hitter and second baseman in the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) home game against Arizona held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and made a big success with 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 walk, 1 RBI, and 2 points. He led the team to a 13-3 victory.
The season batting average was raised from 0.237 to 0.254. The result is even more meaningful as it was against Jack Gallen, the pitcher who pitches the best in the National League (NL).
3 hits overturned sluggish, and the first 4 on-base game of his career
In the bottom of the second inning, the pitcher Bae Ji-hwan stepped down with a grounder in the first at-bat, and in the bottom of the fourth inning, when the two teams faced each other 1-1, with one out and one on first base, he hit the fence with a one-bound double that exceeded the height of the center fielder. With runners on second and third base, he dug home on Josh Palacios’ first hit of the season.
Starting with Bae Ji-hwan, the Pittsburgh line-up scored 7 runs in just the 4th inning, leading the NL with 6 wins this season and an ERA of 2.35.
In the bottom of the 5th inning, despite hitting a ground ball to first baseman, he produced an infield hit with lightning speed and scored again with Brian Reynolds’ home run. After walking out on a straight walk in the bottom of the 6th inning, he faced an interesting situation in the bottom of the 8th inning with no outs on 1st and 3rd base.
In particular, the pitcher he faced in the 8th inning was catcher Jose Arrera. Arizona lost more runs than expected and consumed a lot of pitchers, and eventually catcher Jose Arrera took the mound. In a situation where the game had already turned, he did not overdo it and threw the ball for 57.5 miles (92 km). Bae Ji-hwan hit the ball on an exquisite course and achieved a three-hit game. He also brought in a runner on third base and added an RBI.토토사이트

In the other lineup, Andrew McCutchen and Reynolds, who had 3 hits led by Bae Ji-hwan, posted 4 RBIs including a home run, while Ki-Brian Hayes and Palacios also showed a hot hitting feeling with 3 hits.
With this victory, Pittsburgh jumped into a tie for the lead with the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central Division with 24 wins and 20 losses.
