“I got a terrible call all night,” Bae Ji-hwan’s outrage sparks local outrage

“Bae received horrible calls all night.” “Don’t blame Bae (for protesting the call).”

The US media was also outraged by Bae’s (Pittsburgh Pirates) unfair ejection.

Bae started at second base in the seventh inning of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ home game against the San Diego Padres at 메이저사이트 PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S., on Aug. 28 (KST) and went 0-for-2 with a walk and an RBI. Bae started the game on a high note with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the second inning, but after being called out on questionable calls in the third and fifth innings, he was ejected in the bottom of the sixth inning for protesting a call.

It happened in the bottom of the sixth inning. With two outs and two runners on base, Bae appealed to the umpire when a two-pitch fastball to the body from Adrian Moren was called a strike. The umpire immediately ordered Bae to leave the game, and an irate Bae stretched out three fingers in protest, saying, “This is the third time already.

According to MLB.com’s Gameday, the second pitch of the sixth inning was outside the strike zone. The second high pitch in the third inning and the third high pitch in the fifth inning were both called strikes. The pitch was slightly outside the strike zone, but the umpire called it a strike. After striking out in both at-bats, Bae made his way to the dugout without much of an appeal, only to explode in his fourth at-bat.

Reporters from the local media were also vocal about Bae’s unfair exit. Justice Santos, a Pittsburgh reporter for MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, wrote on social media, “Umpire Jeremy Lehak ejected Bae Ji-hwan for disputing a strike call. It was a rather quick ejection. Bae probably only said one word (before the ejection).”

Another Pittsburgh reporter, Cody Duncan, wrote on social media, “Honestly, Bae has been getting terrible calls all night. His patience must be wearing thin.” DK Pittsburgh Sports’ Dejan Kovacevic also pointed to the gameday pitch list and said, “Don’t blame Bae, he’s been getting hit for a while (during the game). Rookie or not, he could have lost his cool,” he wrote in defense of Bae.

With his ejection in the sixth inning, Bae ended up finishing the game with a hit and two strikeouts. His streak of consecutive games without a hit stretched to nine, and his season batting average dropped to .239 (50-for-209).
