Cold Choi’s bat, no hits in 3 at-bats → 0.053 batting average… Bae Ji-hwan replaced

Choi Ji-man of the Pittsburgh Pirates started, but was silent.

In the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Chicago White Sox held on the 10th (Korean time) at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, Choi Ji-man started as the 5th batter and first baseman, striking out 1 in 3 at-bats. His season batting average fell to 0.053.

Choi Ji-man, who started as the lead batter at the end of the second inning, hit Michael Kopek’s 6-pitch 85.5 mile (approximately 137km/h) slider in a 2B2S situation, but withdrew with a ground ball to the first baseman. In the bottom of the 4th inning, with no runners out, Choi Ji-man hit Kopek’s slider again. But this time, the batted ball flew high and was out with a floating ball to the center fielder.메이저놀이터

At the end of the 6th inning, Choi Ji-man entered the third at-bat with a chance to get 2 out, 1st and 3rd base. Kopek’s first and second pitches fell out of the strike zone. Following this, he received and hit the 3rd and 4th pitches, but they all became fouls. In the 2B2S situation, Kopek chose the slider and induced only Choi to miss. Only Choi could not save the chance to score.

Bae Ji-hwan, who was excluded from the starting lineup, was replaced in the top of the 7th due to O’Neill Cruise’s injury. Cruz, who came out as the lead batter in the bottom of the 6th inning, walked on base and then succeeded in stealing. With a hit by Brian Reynolds, it was safe to go to first and third base. Then came Kibrian Hayes at bat.

Hayes sent a ground ball to third baseman Yoann Moncada. Cruz sprinted home and Moncada threw home. After receiving the ball, Sevi Zavala tagged Cruz out. However, during the home game, Cruz suffered an ankle injury and both teams cleared the bench.

American ‘’ said, “Zabala seemed to be screaming at Cruz after the collision. Carlos Santana also came out excitedly. In the end, the bench cleared.” “Cruz left the field after lying on the ground for several minutes. He seemed to be having trouble putting strength into his left leg.”

Bae Ji-hwan, who came to the game instead of Cruz, came out as the lead batter in the bottom of the 8th inning, but was struck out and withdrew.

The game was a tight pitching battle. Pittsburgh scored 1 run on Jack Swinsky’s sacrifice fly with 1 out on 1st and 3rd base at the end of the 2nd inning, and this score was the only run in the game. Pittsburgh beat the White Sox 1-0 to go 6-3.
