Pittsburgh Pirates Bae Ji-hwan boasted solid defensive basics.
On the 5th (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan started as a second baseman before the Tampa Bay Race in the ‘2023 Major League’ held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA.
On this day, Bae Ji-hwan also protected Pittsburgh’s center line with lake rain.
The moment Bae Ji-hwan shone the most was in episode 6. With Isaac Paredes at bat, Brandon Lowe, who was on first base, attempted to steal. Catcher Jason DeLay quickly ran the ball to second base, but Lowe’s hand was already on base.
However, Bae Ji-hwan tried to tag Low after the catch, and at that moment, Low’s hand, unable to overcome the running inertia, went off the base. The trial court was safe, but the verdict was overturned after a video review.메이저사이트
Bae Ji-hwan showed stable defense throughout the game. Even in the first and second base situations, Randy Arozarena’s shortstop tossed a ground ball, took second base, threw it to first base, and connected it with a double stroke. I threw it into the base and got an out count. In the 4th inning, he also handled Brandon Lowe’s tricky ball neatly and shot support from the mound.
In the game the previous day, Bae Ji-hwan played an active role with a multi-hit and two stolen bases, but he could not smile brightly because he made a throwing mistake in defense. However, he immediately recovered his mentality and showed a stable defense.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh lost 2-3 on the day and fell into a swamp of four straight losses.
