Bae Ji-hwan and the Pittsburgh Pirates soared at the same time.
메이저사이트Pittsburgh’s Bae Ji-hwan started in the middle of the order against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, on March 3 (KST). Bae, who has been hitting well since returning from injury, had another multi-hit game to lead the team to victory. He went 2-for-4 with a double, one RBI, and one run scored.
Bae led off the top of the third inning with a single, trailing 0-3. The next at-bat didn’t result in a run, but Bae’s hit started the rally for Pittsburgh.
Bae stepped to the plate for the second time in the top of the fifth inning with the bases loaded and the Pirates trailing 1-3. It was going to be hell, but quick feet saved him. He hit a hard pitch, but sprinted to first base and made the catch. It would have been cold water if it had been a double play, but Bae survived to keep Pittsburgh in the game. The next batter, Reynolds, singled home the tying run.
The decisive play came in the sixth inning. The game was tied 4-4 in the top of the sixth. It could have been the game-winning hit, but it wasn’t, as the game went back to the drawing board. But it was a game-winning hit.
Bae hit an outfield fly in his final at-bat in the eighth inning, but Pittsburgh scored two runs in the seventh and two more in the ninth to end the game 7-6. The game continued the recent upswing. A five-game hitting streak. Bae raised his season batting average to 2-for-4.
