Major League Baseball (MLB) Pittsburgh Pirates broke the chain of seven consecutive losses with ace Mitch Keller’s shutout. Bae Ji-hwan shared the joy of escaping from a losing streak with his teammates by playing as a great defender.

Pittsburgh won 2-0 in a home game against the 2023 Major League Colorado Rockies held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on the 9th (hereinafter Korean time).

Pittsburgh won안전놀이터 9 days after the 16-1 win in the second game of the double header against the Washington Nationals on April 30th. Pittsburgh, which escaped from 7 consecutive losses, won 21 wins (15 losses) and maintained its lead in the Central Division of the National League.

Keller, a starting pitcher in his fifth year in the big leagues, had his first shutout in his debut. In 9 innings, he struck out 8 while giving up only 4 hits and 1 walk while holding a scoreless run. Keller, who won 4 wins (1 loss) this season, also lowered his ERA to 2.72.

The Pittsburgh pitcher’s shutout victory is about 5 years since Jamison Tyone (Chicago Cubs), who pitched 9 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts, and no runs against the Cincinnati Reds on April 9, 2018.

Colorado, which was at the bottom of the National League, suffered a scoreless loss as the batting line was tied with 4 hits. The season record was 14 wins and 22 losses. Kyle Freeland suffered his 4th loss of the season despite fighting hard with 7 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 4 strikeouts and 2 runs in 7 innings.

The tight zero balance that had continued amid good pitching by the starting pitchers of the two teams was broken at the end of the 7th inning.

When Pittsburgh’s lead hitter, Connor Joe, went to base with a right-handed hit, Rodolfo Castro immediately fired a two-run four with a distance of about 123.7m that crossed the middle fence.

Bae Ji-hwan, who was excluded from the starting lineup that day, replaced Connor Joe in the top of the ninth inning when the team was leading 2-0. There were no hits to him during the defense, and the game ended as it was, so he was not given a chance to stand at bat.
