Grounder → Grounder → Grounder → Grounder… Bae Ji-hwan, ‘4 at bats no hit’ + 12 consecutive at bats no hits… PIT 9-game losing streak

 Bae Ji-hwan’s bat of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the US Major League fell silent once again.

On the 22nd (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan had no hits in 4 at-bats in a home game against the 2023 Major League Chicago Cubs held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Bae Ji-hwan continued his record of 4 consecutive games and no hits in 12 at-bats due to his sluggish performance that day.아톰카지노

Bae Ji-hwan started as the first batter and second baseman that day, but he never stepped on the first base. Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks had a hard time targeting.

In the first at-bat as the lead batter in the bottom of the first inning, he retreated with a shortstop ground ball. In the bottom of the 3rd inning, where the team trailed 1-3, with no runners out, the second baseman grounded.

The third at-bat was also a bum hit. In the bottom of the 6th inning, when Pittsburgh trailed 1-5, Hendrix’s changeup lost timing, and he swallowed his regret with another infield grounder.

It was also regrettable that he missed an RBI opportunity. In the bottom of the 7th inning, with 2 out 1 and 3 base, he lowered his head with an infield grounder to pitcher Mark Lighter Jr., who had changed.

Since all four at-bats were grounded out, there was no need for quick feet. Bae Ji-hwan was later replaced by Jason DeLay when the defense started in the top of the 8th inning. His batting average for the season fell to 0.254, and he could not recover the sense of hitting as he went hitless in four consecutive games.

Pittsburgh also knelt down to the Cubs, 3-8. He was swept in the homeroom and fell into a 9-game losing streak. He gave up three runs but had only two hits. With 34 wins and 39 losses in the season, they stayed in 4th place in the Central Division of the National League, and the competition to advance to the postseason became more difficult.
