Ji-man Choi of Pittsburgh Major League Baseball hit his first home run after transferring.
Could it be a signal to escape from sluggishness?
Choi Ji-man, who had a long-awaited chance to start against left-handed pitcher Valdez.
He turned his bat on the 7th pitch after a full-count engagement in his first at-bat.
He jumps right over the middle fence.
First home run since moving to Pittsburgh.
This is the first home run against a left-handed pitcher in 2 years and 9 months.
In addition, it was more meaningful because the opposing pitcher was a left-handed hitter, Killer Valdez, who only gave up one home run to a left-handed hitter last year.
Choi Ji-man, who has not yet been given enough opportunities.
Could this home run be a turning point?
San Diego’s Ha-Sung Kim stopped Max Scherzer’s no-hit streak.
He pulled out a clean heavy hit for Scherzer, who was fighting hard without a hit until the fifth inning with one out.
3 consecutive hits.
Ha-seong Kim did his part in defense as well.
