It’s not advice, it’s a nuance of virtue.
Bae Ji-hwan of the Pittsburgh Pirates batted as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning of the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Texas Rangers at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S., on May 25.
He continued his good hitting form from the previous day with a multi-hit game, but he was disappointed to see a repeat of his baserunning after a hit.
This proved fatal for Pittsburgh at the time.
Bae’s baserunning prevented the offense from scoring and led to a 6-1 blowout loss for Pittsburgh the previous day.
Not only that, but Bae’s stolen base attempts have also become a hot topic, as he leads the league in stolen bases to start the season.
Bae has attempted to steal 14 times this season, but has been thrown out five times.
On the same day, MLB.com wrote, “Pittsburgh’s stolen base gave the game away to Texas,” and said, “Bae has been stealing a lot lately. He has failed to steal four of his last five attempts.”
On the other hand, Pittsburgh manager Derek Shelton said, “He makes a lot of mistakes, but this will help him grow,” adding, “He needs to slow down. You have to be less greedy. I think it’s better to slow down.”
It may seem like a bit of advice, but it was meant for Bae. Bae has been getting consistent playing time this season.스포츠토토
In 44 games, he’s batting .264 (129-for-34) with two home runs, 12 doubles, 21 RBIs, 14 runs scored, and a .665 OPS.
As Bae is considered the future of Pittsburgh, manager Derek Shelton has expressed his sincere desire to help him improve his game and correct his mistakes.
“I wanted to help the team,” Bae said. I will look at the timing of my runs.”
On the other hand, Bae also played defense in center field in the ninth inning after appearing as a pinch hitter.
However, he did not appear at the plate as the batting order did not return. Pittsburgh lost 2-3.
