Kim Ha-Sung-Bae Ji-Hwan ‘What Happened at the First Korean Derby’

Kim Ha-seong ‘bitter’ over team’s 4-9 loss despite 2-hit performance…Bae Bae-hwan ejected for protesting umpire’s strike call at bat ‘yoke’

Major League Baseball’s Kim Ha-seong (28) of San Diego had three hits against Pittsburgh’s Bae Ji-hwan (24) of Korea. Bae drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, but was ejected for protesting an umpire’s strike call. Bae’s Pittsburgh won the game 9-4.

Kim Ha-seong started at second base and batted leadoff on the 28th at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and went 3-for-5 with two RBIs. He raised his batting average to 0.258 and his OPS to 0.748. Kim struck first in his first at-bat. He pulled an outside curveball off Pittsburgh starter Rich Hill in a seven-pitch at-bat, but was unable to score as Fernando Tatis Jr. immediately followed with a single.카지노사이트

In the second inning, the San Diego bats came out swinging, and Kim was right there in the second at-bat. Kim hit a line drive to center field with the bases loaded. The runners on second and third quickly crossed the plate.

Kim struck out in the fifth, but came back to lead off the seventh with his third hit of the day. He was retired on an infield grounder in the ninth.

San Diego jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the second inning on Kim’s RBI double, but the lead didn’t last long. With scheduled starter Darvish Yu not feeling well, Reese Canier, who started in his place, gave up three runs in the second. Bae Ji-hwan, batting seventh in the Pittsburgh order, gave the Pirates their first run in the second inning with a sacrifice fly to center field. Pittsburgh answered with two runs in the bottom of the third. They added two runs in the sixth and one in the seventh to make it 9-4.

In the bottom of the sixth, Bae was ejected for protesting a strike call in his fourth at-bat. After a fastball was called a strike on the second pitch, Bae stuck out three fingers to show his displeasure with the umpire. It was the third questionable call of the day. Earlier, in Bae’s second at-bat in the third inning, the umpire called two high balls for strikes. In his third at-bat of the fifth inning, the umpire called a third high pitch a strike. In both at-bats, Bae was forced to swing at pitches that were out of the zone. He struck out swinging in the third inning and was called out on a foul tip in the fifth. When Bae complained, the umpire ordered him out of the game. Pittsburgh manager Derek Shelton came out of the dugout to console Bae.
