Bae Ji-hwan played as a substitute for a great defense against Kansas City… Pittsburgh sweeps 3 games in a row

Bae Ji-hwan of the Pittsburgh Pirates stepped on the ground with great defense.

On the 31st (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan participated in an away game against the Kansas City Royals in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) held at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, as a substitute in the top of the 8th inning as a major defense. He played defense for two innings, never getting a chance to bat.

Bae Ji-hwan, who started and recorded hits in all three games from the Chicago Cubs game on the 28th to the Kansas City game on the 30th, but on this day, Pittsburgh seems to have Bae Ji-hwan waited on the bench in consideration of the fact that the Kansas City starter is left-handed Angel Serpa. .

Bae Ji-hwan, who passed the top of the 8th inning safely without any special circumstances, failed to catch the batted ball from lead batter Michael Garcia in the top of the 9th. He jumped to catch the ball flying over his head, but failed to catch it, and in the meantime, the batter-runner settled on third base.

However, Bae Ji-hwan blocked the run by tying up the runner on third base after catching the follow-up hitter Bobby Witt Jr.’s fly ball.스포츠토토

Pittsburgh, which overcame Kansas City on the 29th and also on the 30th, won 4-1 that day, sweeping the three-game series. After Brian Reynolds’ first solo shot in the top of the first inning, Vinnie Capra and Jack Swinsky’s RBIs in the top of the second inning made it 3-0.

Andre Jackson, who was in charge of the starting lineup that day, achieved his first win of the season with 2 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 7 strikeouts and 1 run in 5⅔ innings. The bullpen pitchers who came up behind them kept the lead with a scoreless relay, and closer David Bedner posted his 29th save.

After taking a day off, Pittsburgh will start a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals on September 2nd.
