Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Hyo-Jun Park (26) made a multi-hit (more than two hits in a game), including the second home run of the season.
Hyo-Jun Park started as a ninth batter third baseman in the match against the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball (MLB) 2022 held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA on the 25th (Korean time).
Hyo-Jun Park, who entered the second at-bat in the fifth inning, when the team was leading 2-3, drew a solo arch that turned the game around against Tampa Bay starter Jeffrey Springs.
The 89.7 mph (about 144 km) four-seam fastball skimmed over the right-center fence without missing the sight of the four-seam fastball coming into the high strike zone.
It is a large home run with a distance of 125 meters.
Park Hyo-jun resumed production of cannons five days after he saw the season’s beast in the San Francisco Giants game on the 20th.
Hyo-jun Park hit a home run in front of senior Korean big leaguer Choi Ji-man (31), who started as the second batter in Tampa Bay on the same day.
Hyo-Jun Park, who tied the score with his own home run, started hitting again in the 10th inning of extra time.
Hyo-Jun Park appeared as the lead hitter in the match-match game, which started with a runner on second base, and completed the season’s first multi-hit by hitting an infield hit with a shortstop.
He stole second base and recorded his first stolen base of the season in the continuous two-off first and third bases.
However, Pittsburgh failed to score despite Park Hyo-jun’s performance as all other batters withdrew by hitting.
In the end, Tampa Bay won 4-3 in the bottom of the 10th inning with Harold Ramirez’s finish-off hit in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Hyo-jun Park, who boasted of his presence with two hits in four at-bats, one home run, one run, one run and one stolen base, rose from 0.194 to 0.229 (eight hits in 35).
Tampa Bay’s Choi Ji-man was silent with no hits in four at-bats, and his batting average fell from 0.293 to 0.286 (46 hits in 161).
Also, on the 29th of last month, the 20-game on-base streak that he had continued since the New York Yankees game ended.
