Bae Ji-hwan (24) of the Pittsburgh Pirates showed off his explosive base run today.
On the 15th (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan batted first in a major league game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates held at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, USA.
Bae Ji-hwan, who boasts utility skills in both the infield and outfield, was named in the starting lineup as a shortstop in today’s game.
On this day, Bae Ji-hwan succeeded in getting on base with a ball that hit his body in the first inning, his first at-bat. He grazed lightly enough to be hard to see even on a slow screen, but the referee’s decision was that he was definitely hit. After that, the follow-up hit failed, so the first inning ended without scoring.
Bae Ji-hwan, who started as the lead batter in the 3rd inning, returned the 4th pitch, but it ended up being a ground ball to the 2nd baseman. And in the top of the 5th inning, Bae Ji-hwan, who had his third at-bat in a safe second base situation, was struck out on a foul tip and withdrew. 카지노사이트
Later, Bae Ji-hwan, who entered the plate with two outs in the top of the 7th inning when the team was trailing 0-1, hit the 5th pitch and made a left-handed hit. Left fielder O’Neal threw himself and almost caught it, but the ball came out of the glove and was recognized as a hit by Bae Ji-hwan.
It was a scene that could have been his own revenge if Bae Ji-hwan and O’Neill had caught O’Neill’s big batted ball at the warning track in the previous day’s game.
Bae Ji-hwan, who reached first base, succeeded in stealing second base with his quick feet. With season 4 stolen base, Bae Ji-hwan’s speed was confirmed once again by successfully stealing the base even though the catcher’s throw was accurate.
Bae Ji-hwan’s performance on this day was 3 at-bats, 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 stolen base, and he succeeded in getting on base twice, and he played his role perfectly as a leadoff player.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh failed to hit the right time at the right moment and lost 0-3.
