Pittsburgh Pirates coach Derek Shelton covered Bae Ji-hwan, who made a defensive error in the top of the 9th inning the previous day.
카지노사이트Ahead of the home game against the New York Yankees held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on the 17th (Korean time), Shelton expressed his thoughts about Bae Ji-hwan, who was added to the lineup as the number one second baseman.
Bae Ji-hwan tried to complete a double play defense with one out and bases loaded in the top of the 9th inning of the first game of the series against the Yankees the previous day, but missed an opportunity to end the game by throwing a bad throw to first base.
Shelton, who placed him in the same position today despite the error, said, “It’s part of the path to becoming a big leaguer. “Baseball is a difficult game,” he said.
He said, “Bae Ji-hwan made a mistake late in the game. However, at the same time, although it was an unfortunate hit that hit the opposing pitcher’s head, it was a timely hit to tie the game. “It was thanks to his at bat that we were able to keep the game going until the last minute,” he said, showing his ability to cover up for Bae Ji-hwan’s mistake.
He continued, “I don’t think we lost yesterday’s game because of that one mistake. There were many other reasons. “When the opportunity came, I couldn’t save it, and I walked a runner who shouldn’t have been sent out,” he said, emphasizing the unfairness of blaming a single error for the loss of the previous day’s game.
He reiterated that “the big leagues are a difficult place,” and added, “It’s very important for him to be back there again today. He’s done well so far. “I will continue to watch,” he said, expressing his faith in the player.
The director had something else to worry about about Bae Ji-hwan.
He said, “It’s emotionally very difficult to see another player fall to the ground,” and said he was more worried about hitting opposing pitcher Anthony Misiewicz’s head while at bat in the bottom of the sixth inning than about making a defensive error.
He said, “I made a mistake, but I showed good defense at both second base and center field, so there were games where I won thanks to that. Mistakes are part of the game, just forget about them. “But I’m worried about other things,” he said, again showing concern about the player’s mental impact.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh will face right-hander Luke Weaver today. They had previously faced Weaver twice when he was with the Cincinnati Reds, a team from the same district.
Shelton said, “It feels strange to face a pitcher from the same district against a team from a different district,” and expressed confidence in the opponent’s selection and matchup, saying, “It will be easier than before because I have batted in real situations.” .
