‘Bae Ji-hwan 1-hit’ Pittsburgh loses big to SF, collapses 5-to-1 odds

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bae Ji-hwan had one hit, but it wasn’t enough to prevent his team from getting blown out.

Bae went 1-for-4 in his sixth career start at second base against the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, on Tuesday. He is now batting .275 on the season.

The team lost heavily, 4-14. The loss dropped them to 26-27, a five-game winning percentage. Only the first-place Milwaukee Brewers remain above .500 in the National League Central.

In the top of the seventh inning, with the bases loaded, he hit a line drive up the middle against starter Anthony Desclafani. The hit was short enough to bring home Conor Jo, who was on second base. Instead, the next batter, Rodolfo Castro, grounded out to first base, allowing Cho to cross the plate.

Pittsburgh tacked on two runs in the top of the seventh on a solo home run by Zack Suwinski. The score went from 1-6 to 3-6.

There was hope for a comeback, but that hope was shattered in the next inning. Cody Bolton, who took over on the mound for starter Rich Hill, gave up eight runs on six hits (one homer) and two walks with one out. The damage would have been worse if left fielder Brian Reynolds hadn’t thrown out Casey Schmidt at second and third base.

Hill also made things difficult for himself, allowing six runs on nine hits, one home run, one walk and three strikeouts in six innings. The second inning was disappointing. A leadoff walk to Mitch Hanniger led to five runs on five hits, including a single and three doubles.

메이저놀이터 After a big seventh inning that pushed the deficit to more than 10 runs, closer Chris Owings was brought in to pitch.

The Pittsburgh bats didn’t fare much better. They went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and stranded three.

Tukupita Makano, who started at shortstop, had three hits but didn’t reach base once. In the first inning, he was the cause of his own upset. He doubled on a line drive behind center field, then threw cold water on the play when he misjudged Andrew McCutchen’s grounder between the infield and outfield as a hit, rounding third base and running home.

Suwinski continued his multi-homer performance in the ninth inning. Both homers went over the right field fence and into the sea of water known as McCovey Cove.
