Bae Ji-hwan of the Pittsburgh Pirates of the Major League Baseball fell silent once again.

Bae went hitless in four at-bats during the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Chicago Cubs at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on April 22. The slump extended his hitting streak to four games and 12 consecutive at-bats.

Bae batted first and second on the day, but did not reach base once. He struggled to hit Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks.토토사이트

In his first at-bat to lead off the bottom of the first inning, he grounded out to shortstop. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the third inning and the team trailing 1-3, he grounded out to second base.

His third at-bat was a walk. In the bottom of the sixth inning, with Pittsburgh trailing 1-5, he hit another infield grounder off Hendricks’ changeup.

He also missed an RBI opportunity. In the bottom of the seventh, with runners on second and third, he hit an infield grounder to Mark Wright Jr.

He didn’t need his quick feet as he grounded out all four batters. Bae was then replaced by Jason Delay to start the eighth inning on defense. His batting average dropped to .254 for the season and he never found his groove, going hitless in four straight games.

Pittsburgh also fell to the Cubs at 3-8. They were swept in a doubleheader and dropped their ninth straight. They scored three runs but had just two hits. At 34-39 on the season, the Pirates remain in fourth place in the National League Central, making the race for a postseason berth even tougher.
