Silent Bae, ’14 at-bats without a hit’, is 0-for-7 in his last four…PIT loses 10th straight in ‘Through’s 8th inning’
It’s a downward spiral. Pittsburgh and Bae Ji-hwan are struggling.
Bae Ji-hwan went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts while starting in the eighth inning at second base against the Miami Marlins in the 2023 Major League Baseball game at Marlins Park on Sunday, April 23, 2018, in Miami, Florida.
With one out in the third inning, Bae hit a three-pitch slider from Miami starter Breston Garrett and grounded out to second base.
Henry Davis, who had led off the inning, was forced out at second base, and Bae was lucky to survive at first.
The rally continued with one out. Pittsburgh’s next batter, Austin Hedges, hit a grounder to shortstop that ended up being a double play, stranding Bae.
The fifth inning was no different. Two batters later, he struck out swinging on Garrett’s four-pitch low slider outside.
In his third at-bat of the eighth inning with a 3-1 lead after Davis’ homer, Bae reached on a high fastball after a five-pitch battle with reliever Andrew Nardi and struck out swinging.
Bae, who has gone 14 at-bats without a hit in his last five games, has seen his season batting average drop to .250 from .254.
Especially for Bae, whose slump is getting deeper and deeper. Zooming in on his last seven games, he’s batting just .050 (1-for-20) with an OPS of .258.바카라사이트
Pittsburgh’s offense is just as bad.
They got a multi-hit day from leadoff man Hayes and starter Mitch Keller pitched seven innings of five-hit, one-run ball.
But in the eighth inning, through. RBI singles by George Slaughter and Brian De La Cruz, along with a three-run homer by Kurt Cooper, sent the Pirates to their 10th straight loss.
Pittsburgh is now 34-40 on the season. They remained in fourth place in the National League Central.
