‘AVG 0.148’ Bae Ji-hwan’s NL 3rd place fall is natural… 173.5 billion won special rookie ‘Akuna Nawa’

Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh Pirates) has been suffering from a batting slump since mid-June. He couldn’t even hold on to second place in the National League in stolen bases because he couldn’t get on base.

Bae Ji-hwan started as second baseman in the 2023 major league home game against the Chicago Cubs held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on the 22nd (hereinafter Korean time), but only had no hits in 4 at-bats. Season 197 at-bats, 50 hits, batting average 0.254, 2 homers, 18 RBIs, 35 runs, 20 stolen bases, on-base percentage, 0.318 slugging percentage, 0.330 OPS, 0.648.온라인카지노

Bae Ji-hwan’s batting pace has not been good since June. He had a batting average of 0.234 with 2 homers, 9 RBIs, 15 points and 9 stolen bases in April with an OPS of 0.605 and an OPS of 0.304 with 3 RBIs, 9 runs and 4 stolen bases in May with an OPS of 0.751. In June, batting average 0.188, 6 RBIs, 9 runs scored, 5 stolen bases, OPS 0.494.

His on-base percentage in June was 0.286, but he stole one more base than in May, which was 0.360. However, after successfully stealing 20 bases for the season against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 17th, he failed to even attempt 5 games in a row. In these 5 games, his hitting feeling was atrocious. He was 1-for-15 with two walks. He was on base only three times, so it is true that he had a hard time running. The team also fell into a shocking 9-game losing streak until this day, and there were not many close games with 1 or 2 points.

While Bae Ji-hwan struggled to add stolen bases due to his lack of hitting, his competitors ran vigorously. Corbin Carroll (Arizona Diamondbacks), the first candidate for the National League Rookie of the Year this season, stole two bases against the Milwaukee Brewers that day. It was his first steal in 10 games since the match against the Detroit Tigers on the 12th.

Carroll was third in the National League with 19 stolen bases through the previous day. On this day, he added two more, beating Bae Ji-hwan to third place and rising to second place alone. He is 10 behind Ronald Acuna Jr. (Atlanta Braves, 31 stolen bases), who is leading the National League in stolen bases.

Carroll also ranks fifth in the major league all-time stealing base rankings. Bae Ji-hwan was pushed down to 6th place. In 72 games this season, Carroll batted .298 with 16 homers, 40 RBIs, 55 runs scored, 21 stolen bases, 0.381 slugging percentage, 0.581 OPS and 0.962 OPS. He has a solo system for the Rookie of the Year race, and has also been named in the National League MVP race.

In fact, Carroll is also not at a very good pace, going 9 hits in 37 at-bats with a batting average of 0.243 in the last 10 games. Still, looking at his overall performance in June, he is formidable with a batting average of 0.320, 7 homers, 18 RBIs, 20 points, 5 steals, and an OPS of 1.126. It’s natural for Carol, an outfielder with good athletic ability, to stand out in stealing.

Bae Ji-hwan is also in jeopardy for third place in the National League in steals. This is because veteran Starling Marte (New York Mets) also succeeded in stealing 20 bases this season against the Houston Astros. It is in danger of being pushed out of the 4th place. Behind Marte, Tyro Estrada (San Francisco Giants, 17 stolen bases), Nico Horner (Chicago Cubs), and Christian Yelich (Milwaukee Brewers, more than 16 stolen bases) aim to rise in the rankings.
