Bae Ji-hwan of the MLB has gone 0-for-4, snapping a nine-game hitting run.
Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh Pirates) saw his hitting streak come to an end at eight games.
Bae went hitless in four at-bats, starting at first base and batting second, against the Washington Nationals in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States, on Friday.
The failure to produce a hit on the day halted Bae’s longest individual big league hitting streak at eight games.
The previous record was a six-game hitting streak from May 18 against the Detroit Tigers to May 27 against the Seattle Mariners this year.
Bae’s season batting average dropped slightly from .245 to .242 (72 for 298).
Bae left the game in the first inning after a high cut-past ball on a full count was called a strike.
In the third inning, he swung at an even higher pitch, and in the sixth, he was left stranded on a sweeper outside the strike zone.
In the bottom of the eighth, with the bases loaded, he tried a fastball, but it was grounded to the pitcher.
Pittsburgh got two solo shots from Zack Swinski in the second and Alfonso Rivas 카지노사이트킴 in the fifth to win 2-0 and extend its winning streak to three games.
