Technical support issues
After a harrowing experience the day before, Bae Ji-hwan (24-Pittsburgh Pirates) was silenced with a no-hitter.
Bae went 1-for-3 with a walk, a strikeout and a run scored in the first inning of the Pittsburgh Pirates' 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the New York Yankees at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S., on Sunday (July 17).
His season batting average dropped from 0.242 to 0.239.
Bae was hit by a 161.8-mile-per-hour pitch in the bottom of the sixth inning the previous day that struck Yankees pitcher Anthony Mizevich in the right side of the head.
Misiewicz fell to the field and was carted off the field in pain.
Due to the impact, Bae Ji-hwan made an error at first base in the top of the ninth inning that led to the loss.
Bae also had a subdued performance in the game. A walk in the top of the first inning was the only bright spot.
The next batter, Brian Reynolds, hit a home run to center field.
He was silent the rest of the at-bat. He struck out swinging in the second, flied out to center field in the fifth, and grounded out to second base in the eighth. Pittsburgh lost 3-6.
Meanwhile, Mizevich was placed on the one-week disabled list (IL) as a concussion protective measure and traveled to New York after being examined on Sunday.
"He's got some lingering symptoms, but overall, it's not too bad," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.
