Pirates Fall to 3rd place in 5 consecutive losses, Bae Ji-hwan’s infield hit, MLB’s highest number of 17

The Pittsburgh Pirates, which fell into a five-game losing streak, fell to third place. It is the first fall since being tied for third place with two wins and two losses on April 4 at the beginning of the season.

Pittsburgh was shut out 0-5 in the second 안전놀이터 game of the series against its rival Brewers at American Family Field in Milwaukee on the 18th (Korea Standard Time), falling into a five-game losing streak. 34 wins and 35 losses in the season.

Pittsburgh, which had already lost its lead to Milwaukee due to a 4-5, one-point loss the previous day, fell to third place with seven consecutive wins by the Cincinnati Reds (36 wins and 35 losses), who were considered the bottom of the season. Cincinnati extended its winning streak to seven at defending world series champion Houston Astros enemy territory.

For Pittsburgh, it is serious that it was also defeated by ace Mitch Keller. There is no guarantee that Lewis Otis, who has one win, three losses and a 4.64 ERA on the 19th because Caller failed to act as a stopper, will end his losing streak. We have no choice but to rely on attacks. Keller had five hits, three walks, seven strikeouts and four runs, including one home run in five innings, making it 8 wins, 3 losses, and 3.62.

Milwaukee took the lead with a two-run double by Rudy Therese in the fifth inning after George Wimmer took the lead with a two-run home run (10th). The number of hits was the same at 6-6. Milwaukee veteran left-hander Wade Miley led the victory with two hits, two walks and four strikeouts in five innings. Season 4 wins, 2 losses, 3.28.

During their five-game losing streak, Pittsburgh scored 15 points. Three points per game. However, the loss is 38 points. It’s -23 points difference. The mound didn’t hold out. In particular, it is painful that all five consecutive losses were lost to the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers.

Bae Ji-hwan, who played as a center fielder, had only one hit and one strikeout in four at-bats with one bunt hit. His batting average also dropped to 0.269. He had no hits in two at-bats in the previous day’s game, but succeeded in stealing one base and led the National League Rookie with 20.
