Choi hits 2 home runs since returning…but ‘hides’ bases loaded walk against SF

Choi Ji-Man (Pittsburgh Pirates), who had been starting since returning from injury, came off the bench. He continued his streak of consecutive games.

Ji-Man Choi drew a walk as a pinch-hitter during the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the San Francisco Giants at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on Sunday (July 17).

Choi entered the game in the bottom of the 10th inning of extra innings with the bases loaded and his team trailing 4-8. Facing Scott Alexander, Choi picked off a sinker on a full-count pitch, sending Jared Triolo from first base to second. The next batter, Nick Gonzalez, was hit by a pitch and advanced to second on a wild pitch. 메이저토토사이트

However, Pittsburgh was unable to score as Gonzalez was retired on a grounder, and the game remained scoreless.

Choi, who was sidelined with a left Achilles injury in April, returned to the lineup eight days after the end of the first half and showed signs of life with four hits in five games, including two home runs. He was left out of the starting lineup for the first time since his return, but he drew a walk to get on base and contribute to the team’s offense.

Choi’s batting average remains at .176 for the season. His on-base percentage is up slightly to .189. Pittsburgh lost its third straight game, dropping its 52nd game of the season (41).
