Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh), who took a day off, came back with a ‘strong look’.
In the home game against the Oakland Athletics held at PNC Park on the 8th (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan started as the 8th hitter and center fielder. He went 3-for-1 with 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 run, slightly improving his batting average from .275 to 0.276 and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) from 0.692 to 0.695.
Bae Ji-hwan ran out of breath from the beginning of the first inning. Pittsburgh starter Roanzi Contreras was busy catching the ball that flowed into center field, allowing Oakland six hits. Contreras, who gave up 5 runs in ⅓ innings, was eventually demolished, and Rob Jastrini came to the rescue, but he allowed 2 more runs as the bases were already full. The score is 0-7. I completely gave up the atmosphere.
In the bottom of the second inning, Bae Ji-hwan tried to turn things around by using Rodolfo Castro’s solo shot as a stepping stone. He made his first at-bat in the bottom of the third inning and hit an infield hit to settle on first base. However, subsequent batters were put out and had to end the inning.
Bae Ji-hwan, who withdrew with a grounder at the bottom of the 4th and a straight hit at the bottom of the 7th, took the bat again in the bottom of the 9th. He walked, got on base, and stepped on home plate on a timely hit by Brian Reynolds. Bae Ji-hwan added one point, but he could not turn the game around.
Pittsburgh,먹튀검증 which lost a lot from the start of the game, lost 5-9 to Oakland for the second consecutive time. Bae Ji-hwan played in 2 games and recorded 2 hits in 6 at-bats, 2 walks, 1 stolen base and 2 runs.
