held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on the 7th (Korean time) and played with 1 hit in 4 at-bats, 1 RBI, and 1 run.
The person who hit the game-winning hit that day was Bae Ji-hwan.
Bae Ji-hwan hit a 142 km/h slider from Milwaukee right-handed bullpen Elvis Figuero with one out and runner on first base in the bottom of the 7th inning with the score 3-3.
A fast ball hitting 177 km/h flew all the way to the center fence. 카지노사이트위키
Milwaukee’s center fielder was also fortunate to play defense that was biased toward left field.
First base runner Jace DeLay reached home with ease, and Bae Ji-hwan increased his speed and ran to third base.
It was Bae Ji-hwan’s first triple in the major league.
In the minor league, Ji-Hwan Bae hit 18 triples.
Bae Ji-hwan also scored by hitting home on Miguel Andujar’s heavy hit.
He did not achieve multiple hits (more than 2 hits in a game).
Bae Ji-hwan only hit a ground ball to third base in the 1st inning, a ground ball to shortstop in the 3rd, and a fly ball to shortstop in the 6th.
However, he hit the game-winning hit in his last at-bat.
He maintained a season batting average of 0.241 (65 hits in 270 at-bats).
Pittsburgh won 5-4.
Although they achieved victory, Pittsburgh Pirates also received unfortunate news.
‘Captain’ Andrew McCutcheon was diagnosed with a ‘6-week diagnosis’ due to an Achilles tendon injury, making it impossible for him to participate in the remaining games of this season.
McCutcheon was replaced after hitting a double in the 5th inning against Milwaukee on the 5th due to discomfort in his left foot.
As a result of a detailed examination, damage to the Achilles tendon was discovered.
Andrew McCutcheon, who is only one hit away from his personal Major League record of 300 home runs,
said in an interview with MLB, “It’s unfortunate that I suffered an unexpected injury.
It’s disappointing, but something like this can happen at any time.
I will definitely come back.”
