Is this because Bae Ji-hwan, who had been on a three-game hitting streak, was excluded? Pittsburgh ended its winning streak and was eliminated from the postseason.
Ji-Hwan Bae did not appear in the 2023 MLB away game against the Cincinnati Reds held at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 25th (Korean time) as he was excluded from the starting lineup and replaced in the second half of the game.
The fact that Cincinnati’s starting pitcher is left-hander Brandon Williams appears to have had an impact on his exclusion. Also known as Platoon. Due to the Pittsburgh team’s situation of selectively using batters depending on the opposing team’s pitcher, Bae Ji-hwan did not come forward.
However, it is a somewhat disappointing result. Bae Ji-hwan has been hitting in three consecutive games since the game against the Chicago Cubs on the 22nd, going 4 hits in 11 at-bats and 4 RBIs.
Pittsburgh took the lead in the game that day. Pittsburgh scored two runs in the 5th inning with Jack Swinsky’s go-ahead solo home run, and starter Quinn Priester also pitched a no-hitter until the 5th inning to take a 2-0 lead.먹튀검증
However, Cincinnati’s counterattack began in the 6th inning. Jonathan India’s hit was followed by TJ Friedle’s two-run shot to right-center to tie the game at 2-2, and after two outs in the 7th inning, India’s double and Friedle’s timely hit led to a 3-2 comeback. In the 8th inning, Christian Encarnacion-Stand scored his 11th solo home run of the season.
In the end, Pittsburgh lost 2-4 without being able to close the gap, ending its last four consecutive wins. They were also confirmed to be eliminated from the postseason with a season record of 74 wins and 82 losses.
On the other hand, Cincinnati, which broke its four-game losing streak, posted 80 wins and 77 losses.
