Pittsburgh sweeps away KC… Bae Ji-hwan replaced
The Pittsburgh Pirates swept three consecutive Kansas City away games.
On the 31st (Korean time), Pittsburgh defeated the Kansas City Royals in the final game of the away series held at Coffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, USA 4-1.
With this victory, he swept three consecutive matches and recorded 61 wins and 73 losses. If only one win is added, it is equal to the number of wins last season.
Bae Ji-hwan, who was excluded from the start, played the rest of the game by replacing him with center fielder ahead of the defense in the bottom of the 8th inning. He didn’t take the plate.
In the bottom of the ninth, he followed Michael Garcia’s well-hit ball to the end and extended his glove, but missed the ball by a narrow margin. The ball rolled to the fence and became a triple hit. Had it been captured, it would have been a scene worthy of today’s highlight.
Pittsburgh finisher David Bednar was unmoved by this and finished the game without conceding. Bae Ji-hwan rushed out and caught the shallow floating ball of the next hitter, Bobby Whit Jr., and tied the runner on third base.
Pittsburgh created the atmosphere by scoring early. In the first inning, Brian Reynolds took the lead with a solo home run that went over the left-center fence, and in the second inning, Lee over Peguero, Vinnie Capra’s doubles, and Jack Swinski’s right-handed hit added two runs.
When Kansas City made up for one run with Bobby Whit Jr.’s solo home run at the bottom of the fourth inning, Jack Suwinsky responded with a home run that went over the wall in the top of the seventh inning.메이저사이트
Starter Andre Jackson pitched 5 2/3 innings with 2 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts and 1 run, recording his first win in his big league debut.
Ryan Boruki made a relief mound with second out and first base in the bottom of the sixth inning, and was responsible for the remaining out, while Thomas Hatch, Colin Holderman, and David Bednar threw one inning each.
Kansas City starter Angel Zerpa became the losing pitcher with 5 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 3 runs in 5 2/3 innings.
After a day off, Pittsburgh will move to St. Louis, on the other side of Missouri, and play three straight away games against the St. Louis Cardinals.
