At this rate, it seems that there will be no problem with the opening entry. This is the story of Pittsburgh Korean duo Choi Ji-man (32) and Bae Ji-hwan (24).
Pittsburgh drew 6-6 in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) exhibition game against the Detroit Tigers held at Polix Stadium in Florida, USA on the 25th (Korean time).
On this day, Choi Ji-man and Bae Ji-hwan sortied side by side and played an active part. Choi Ji-man, who played as the designated hitter No. 5, recorded his second multi-hit in the demonstration game with 2 hits and 2 strikeouts in 4 at-bats.
Bae Ji-hwan played as a substitute and contributed to the victory with 1 hit, 2 steals and 2 runs in 1 at-bat.
Choi Ji-man, who went out first, pulled Eduardo Rodriguez’s slider on the second pitch and scored a right-handed hit in the first inning when the team was leading 2-0 with no runners. The good feeling continued in the beginning of the 3rd inning, which was 3-0. Rodriguez hit the sinker on the third pitch and hit a double extra-base hit.
However, in the top of the 6th inning when the team turned 3-4, Rodriguez struck out, and in the top of the 7th, bullpen Bob Briskie struck out again, failing to add a hit. 토토사이트

And at the end of the game, it flashed. He saved a team from the brink of defeat. In the top of the ninth inning when the team was trailing 5-6, Bae Ji-hwan, who came out as the lead batter, stepped on first base with a right-handed hit and stole second base to connect the scoring situation. Bae Ji-hwan, who went to third base as the opponent’s foil, stormed home when Ernie Ordones grounded in the infield, making the score 6-6.
In this way, Pittsburgh ended the game in a draw thanks to Bae Ji-hwan’s quick feet.
