Bae Ji-hwan, another ‘main demonstration’… As a fielder, a throw error and a blot

Bae Ji-hwan of the Major League Pittsburgh Pirates, who returned to the starting lineup after one game, left a shadow. In the offense, he made a splash by recording the season’s 5th multi-hit and 4th multi-steal, but as a fielder, he made a decisive throwing error, providing an excuse for the team’s defeat.

Bae Ji-hwan started 먹튀검증 as the 8th hitter and second baseman in the match against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on the 3rd (hereafter local time). At bat, his season batting average, which went 2 hits and 1 walk in 3 at-bats, rose to 0.262.

His offensive contribution was perfect. After being used as a pinch hitter the previous day and striking out, he walked the first time at bat in the second inning that day and got on base and adjusted the score. Hit production resumed from the second at-bat. He came out alive with a surprise bunt in the 4th inning when he was trailing 3 to 1 with no runners and two outs.

He also showed his presence as a runner. Bae Ji-hwan, who stole second base and recorded his 12th stolen base of the season, went all the way to third base during a pitcher’s wild throw, but failed to score due to a missed follow-up hit. A similar scene was repeated in episode 7. He stepped in as the leadoff batter, hit left-handed, and then stole second base again. In a week since the 27th of last month, he recorded multiple hits and multiple steals.

What was disappointing was the defense. In the bottom of the 5th inning, it was perfect until Yandi Diaz’s heavy hitting hit was kicked off with a diving catch at second base, and the run was prevented. The problem came from Wander Franco at bat with second out and third base. He committed a bad throw to first base while running to the mound and dealing with a missed ground ball. Not only did the runner on third base score, but the batter runner also went all the way to third base after missing the ball.

Allowing an extra point, Pittsburgh failed in the half and lost 8-1. Although he left a blemish in defense, Bae Ji-hwan made it known that he was a special attacking option through his performance at bat and on base. In the stolen base category, he chased Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves, who ranked first overall, by one car.

On the same day, San Diego Padres Kim Ha-seong contributed to the team’s victory with a walk. In a game against the Cincinnati Reds, he started as a 7th hitter and third baseman, and recorded no hits, 1 walk and 1 run in 3 at-bats. The team won 7-1.
