Pittsburgh Pirates Korean duo Choi Ji-man and Bae Ji-hwan’s bats were silent side by side.
On the 2nd (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan started as the 8th hitter in center field in an MLB visiting game against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio.
He went hitless in four at-bats, including three strikeouts.
Bae Ji-hwan, who led the team to victory with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 walk, 2 runs and 2 steals in the opening game of the big league for the first time in his career two days ago, showed off his multi-player qualities as a center fielder instead of a second baseman that day. 온라인바카라

In the top of the 9th inning, when the score was 2-6, Choi Ji-man came out as a pinch hitter and hit a sharp ball toward the right fielder, but was caught with a straight hit to the fielder.
The match also ended in Pittsburgh’s 2-6 loss.
