Pittsburgh’s Bae Ji-hwan goes 2-for-4

walk in his first MLB at-bat in a month

One month after shaking off an ankle injury, Bae Ji-hwan (24-Pittsburgh Pirates) returned to Major League Baseball (MLB) with a multi-hit performance.

Bae went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk in the leadoff spot in the lineup against the Minnesota Twins on Monday (July 19) at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, 토토 USA.

The multi-hit game raised Bae’s season batting average from .238 to .243.

The game marked Bae’s return to the big leagues after a one-month absence.

Bae injured his ankle against the Milwaukee Brewers on July 2 and was placed on the disabled list (IL) a day later.

After rehabbing, Bae played nine rehab games in the minors since the beginning of the month to prepare for his return to the majors. His Triple-A numbers were .344 with one home run, one RBI, nine runs scored, two doubles, and a .993 OPS.

Taking the leadoff spot in his return to the major leagues, Bae was up to the task.

In the top of the first inning, Bae took a 94.2-mph fastball from starter Pablo Lopez and lined it to left field. It was his first hit in 49 days, since going 1-for-1 against Milwaukee on July 1.

Bae stole second on a Brian Reynolds single and third on a Keeb Bryan Hayes sacrifice, 안전놀이터 but the next two batters, Zach Suwinski and Henry Davis, struck out to end the inning.

With two outs in the top of the third, Bae tried to lay down a sacrifice bunt on Lopez’s first-pitch changeup, but was thrown out at second on a fielder’s choice.

However, Bae made up for his mistake in his next at-bat. In the top of the fifth inning, he drew a walk to load the bases.

Then, with the bases loaded in the top of the seventh, he hit a two-run double to right-center field off veteran pitcher Caleb Tilba. Pittsburgh scored a run when Reynolds singled with runners on second and third after Bae’s double.

Bae had one last at-bat in the top of the ninth, but he struck out swinging on a full count against reliever Joan Duran.

Pittsburgh’s lack of cohesion at the plate led to a 1-5 loss to Minnesota. Bae’s performance was highlighted by the failure to capitalize on runners on first and third in the first inning, runners on second and third in the fifth, and runners on first and third with no outs in the seventh.

Pittsburgh is 54-68 and in fourth place in the National League Central. 스포츠토토 They are just a half-game behind the last-place St. Louis Cardinals (54-69).

American League Central Division leader Minnesota has 64 wins and 59 losses.
