Bae Ji-hwan was silent. However, the team was able to take comfort in the fact that they had won six consecutive victories.
Bae Ji-hwan of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the US Major League had a no-hit game. On the 23rd (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan started as the 7th center fielder in the match against the Cincinnati Reds at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, USA. Bae Ji-hwan, who took off as a starting player with a surprise performance after the opening, has recently started playing from the bench more often. However, he ignited his fighting spirit by sortie again as a starter after two games. At that time, in the game against Cincinnati, he was silent with no hits in 3 at-bats, ending his three-game hitting streak. And in the game on the 22nd, he played as a large runner and could not enter the plate.
But no hits came. Bae Ji-hwan retired with a shortstop fly in the first at-bat in the second inning. In the absence of runners from the second company, Cincinnati was unable to overcome the starters.
In the 4th inning, the batting line could not continue to rise. Pittsburgh made the score 2-0 with Swinski’s timely hit in the 5th. With 2nd out and 3rd base, Bae Ji-hwan’s second at-bat returned. However, Bae Ji-hwan, who touched Sesa’s first ball, had to hit the ground with a fly in the first baseman’s infield this time.
Bae Ji-hwan re-entered as the lead batter in the bottom of the 7th inning when the team took a narrow 2-1 lead. But this time it was a strikeout. He struck out on three balls and swung wrong. 안전놀이터
The Pittsburgh line-up had 8 hits on the day, but only scored 2 runs. Therefore, Bae Ji-hwan, who was in the 7th batting order, did not return for the 4th at-bat. There was also an aftermath of not playing the bottom of the ninth. So Bae Ji-hwan went 3 at-bats with no hits and 1 strikeout.
But the team is on a huge upswing. Up to this day’s game, he caught 2-1 and ran a 6-game winning streak. At the beginning of the season, the ‘Last in 10,000 Years’ storm is strong, such as recording more than 100 losses for two consecutive years. Pittsburgh threw a winning move to sign a blitz contract renewal with manager Shelton ahead of this game. The result was a 6-game winning streak.
