A return to the big leagues… Choi Ji-man, ‘multi-hit’ bang in Triple A

Choi Ji-man (32, Pittsburgh Pirates), who is aiming to return to the Major League (MLB), is steadily raising the sense of hitting.

Choi Ji-man, who hit his first hit in the first inning with one company and first base, retreated with a looking strikeout. The next at-bat completed the on-base. He singled out a walk after a full count on seven pitches in the third inning with two outs. Afterwards, Carl Mitchell hit a home run and Choi Ji-man scored.

Choi Ji-man, who appeared as the lead batter in the 5th inning, hit a right-handed hit, and also produced a left-handed hit in the 6th inning with 2 outs and 1st base. However, the follow-up batters were silent on the chance and no additional points were scored. In the last hit in the ninth inning, he struck out on a swing.토토사이트
