Pittsburgh Pirates’ Bae Ji-hwan (24) gets a hit, but fails to steal a base.
Bae Ji-hwan went 1-for-4 in the first inning of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the Milwaukee Brewers at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S., on June 6. Bae’s season batting average increased slightly from 0.240 to 0.241.
Bae drew a walk in his first at-bat in the first inning. After a full-count battle with Milwaukee starter Brandon Woodruff, he took a seven-pitch fastball up the middle for a single.
He then attempted to steal second base on the next pitch from Brian Reynolds. Milwaukee catcher William Contreras attempted to “sit and shoot,” as if he hadn’t already seen Bae’s steal, but Bae’s left foot touched the base first on a bent-leg slide. The second base umpire called the save.
However, it was overturned as an out when the Milwaukee bench requested a video review.
Bae pushed off after touching the base with his left foot, and opposing shortstop Willy Adames tagged him before his right foot touched the base. It was his seventh stolen base of the season (22 on the year). Bae’s concentration was a little off, and his opponent didn’t let up.스포츠토토
Bae walked to the dugout with a disappointed look on his face, but he was later retired on a grounder to second, a swinging strikeout, and a grounder to second.
Pittsburgh fell to Milwaukee, 3-7.
