‘Is this a strike?’ RYU’s worst umpire harassed Bae Ji-hwan…Shock’s 3-game hitting streak snapped, 9-game hitting streak frustrated

Bae Ji-hwan (24-Pittsburgh Pirates) went hitless and struck out three times amid a questionable ball call.

In the third inning with a 1-0 lead, he struck out for the second time with the bases loaded. This time, he swung and missed on a five-pitch high cutter at 2B-2S. Gray put on a KKK strikeout show in the third inning against Jared Triolo, Jason Delay and Bae Ji-Hwan.

His third at-bat was also a strikeout. With a 2-0 lead, the bases were loaded in the sixth inning. After picking off a 1B-2S pitch, he swung at a five-pitch sweeper that fell just outside the zone, but the umpire called another strike. This one was also out of the strike zone on game day.

Still leading 2-0 in the eighth inning, Bae grounded out to first base to end the at-bat. His hitting streak was snapped at eight games, and his season batting average dropped from 2-for-4 to 2-for-5.
