Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bae Ji-hwan (24) is aiming for a .300 batting average and 30 stolen bases, the symbol of the Hotazun people. It’s not an impossible goal given his recent form.
Bae batted sixth in the lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on 5 May. He went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBIs and two stolen bases in the team’s 2-1 victory.
The multi-hit game raised his season batting average to .274. He is now in the mid-to-high double digits, putting him on pace for a triple-digit batting average. He also added two home runs, 14 RBIs, and 17 stolen bases.토토사이트
He’s been hitting well of late. Over his last seven games, he is 7-for-23 (.304) with two home runs, one RBI, and two doubles. His range is even better over his last 15 games. Bae is 17-for-48 with a .354 batting average. He added three doubles, nine runs scored, two walks and three stolen bases.
A triple slugging percentage is what separates good hitters from great ones. If you hit over 30% and conquer the 30-steal plateau, you can call yourself a hotshot. Bae is slowly improving his batting average and is expected to reach 30 stolen bases unless he suffers a major slump. Bae Ji-hwan is hitting harder and harder to reach his goal of 30+ stolen bases.
