Bae Ji-hwan (24-Pittsburgh Pirates) hit for the cycle for the second straight game, but it wasn’t enough to prevent his team from losing.
Bae went 1-for-4 with a double in the sixth spot in the batting order against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, USA.
Bae followed up his multi-hit game the day before (Sept. 29) with another hit to keep his season average at .275.
After being hit by a pitch in his first at-bat in the second inning, Bae grounded out to second base in his second at-bat in the top of the fifth.
Then, trailing 6-2 in the top of the seventh, he got a hit in his third at-bat. After back-to-back singles by leadoff hitter Zach Swinski and Connor Cho, Bae stepped to the plate and singled up the middle to put runners on first and third.
Pittsburgh then added a run when Rodolf Castro’s grounder to the first baseman allowed the runner from third to score. Bae advanced to third on the play. However, the Pirates were unable to capitalize as they were unable to get a hit.토토사이트
