‘Hits made with lightning speed’…Bae Ji-hwan makes up for previous slump → ‘5 straight losses’ Pittsburgh ‘collapses’ at 5-to-1 odds

Pittsburgh Pirates’ Bae Ji-hwan made his presence felt with an infield hit, but it was overshadowed by his team’s loss.

Bae batted seventh and started in center field for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the Milwaukee Brewers at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, on April 18.

On the day, Bae went 1-for-4 with a walk, his first hit in two games. His season batting average remained unchanged from the previous day at .269.

After grounding out in his first at-bat, Bae attempted a surprise bunt in his second at-bat. He led off the fifth inning with a bunt on Wade Miley’s super-cut fastball and ran hard to first base. But Miley made a clean catch, and the ball reached first base for the out.

He made up for it in his third at-bat. Bae hit a three-pitch sinker from left-hander Hobey Milner with two outs in the top of the seventh inning with his team trailing 0-4. The pitch sailed past the pitcher’s glove, and Milner tried to make a quick throw, but Bae was quicker this time. The result was an infield hit.

However, after a Mark Matthias walk, Austin Hedges singled to load the bases.먹튀검증

Bae struck out in his final at-bat to end the game, and the Pirates, who struggled against Milwaukee all game, fell to 0-5. The loss snapped a five-game losing streak for Pittsburgh, which had fallen from first place in the division to third place the day before, and dropped to 34-35 (.493) on the season.

The team’s losing streak got even longer as “ace” Mitch Keller failed to live up to expectations, especially on the mound, giving up four runs on five hits (one home run) with three walks and seven strikeouts in five innings.
