2 minutes, 18 seconds Read

Bae Ji-hwan (24, Pittsburgh Pirates) became a team solver with multiple hits.

Bae Ji-hwan started as the 6th hitter and center fielder in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) St. Louis Cardinals match held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on the 5th (Korean time) and recorded 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 steals in 4 at-bats. One of the two hits was a timely hit with two RBIs at the end of the first inning, and Pittsburgh kept that score and won 2-1, recording the final hit for the day. After scoring the final goal as a large runner the previous day, he became the solver two days in a row. The batting average for the season also rose to 0.274.

He got a hit in his first at-bat. After one out in the first inning, Pittsburgh created opportunities for first and second base with consecutive hits by Brian Reynolds and Jack Swinsky, and then took a chance at the base with Brian Hayes’ hit after two outs.

Bae Ji-hwan saved the table prepared by the top line. After entering the plate, Bae Ji-hwan attacked the inside fastball that came in on the 4th pitch in a match against St. Louis starter Miles Micholas, and made it a heavy hit that brought in two runners.

He also saved his fast feet. He stole second base when the subsequent batter, Rodolfo Castro, was at bat. It was the 16th steal of the season, which came out in 7 games since the match against the Seattle Mariners on May 28th.

Bae Ji-hwan, who only hit a base hit at the end of the 3rd inning, sprinted again at the end of the 5th inning. Entering the plate with 2nd out and 1st base, he completed a multi-hit game with a heavy hit. Then, he succeeded in stealing second base in the situation of first and third base, and succeeded in stealing the 17th base of the season.

By recording two stolen bases after a long time, the competition for the king of stolen bases was rekindled. His 17 steals is tied for second with Sterling Marte (New York Mets) following Ronald Acuña Jr. (Atlanta Braves, 24), the national league leader in stolen bases. 

Bae Ji-hwan finished the day at bat with a shortstop ground ball in the last at-bat at the end of the 8th inning.토토사이트

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has recently won five games in a row with this victory. The April uptrend seems to be repeating itself. The season record was also out of the period of fighting around 50% win rate, and maintained second place in the National League Central Division with 31 wins and 27 losses. It is only half a game away from the leading Milwaukee Brewers (32-27).
