Although it is a successful conclusion three hits, including a home run exploded on the last day of the regular season
Choi Ji-man of the Tampa Bay Rays shot three hits, including his 11th home run of the season, in the final game of the regular season, signaling his performance in the postseason.
In an away game against the Boston Red Sox in the 2022 Major League Baseball at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, on the 6th (Korea Standard Time), Choi Ji-man started as the third batter and first baseman and scored three hits, two RBIs, one walk, and one run in four at-bats.
Choi Ji-man ended the regular season with a .234 on-base percentage of .34 (83 hits in 355 at-bats) and a .389 slugging percentage of .341. Choi Ji-man, who once hit hard at the beginning of the season and was close to .300, fell into a slump after the start of the second half. However, he has batted .500 in four games since October, revealing his prospects for the postseason.
On this day, Choi Ji-man pulled a pitch from Boston starter Nick Pivetta from the first at-bat in the top of the first inning and connected it with a hit. He then hit a two-run home run in the top of the third inning, trailing 0-3, pushing Piveta’s sixth fastball over Fenway Park’s left fence “Green Monster.”
Since then, Choi Ji-man’s instinct to attack has not rested. Choi Ji-man, who stood at the batter’s box with no outs and runners on first base in the top of the fifth inning, hit a double that crossed the right fielder’s height without being shaken even when the first baseman was out as a checker. Choi Ji-man, who succeeded in getting on base with a walk in the seventh inning, stepped down with a fly ball to center field in the last at-bat in the ninth inning 토토추천
Despite Choi Ji-man’s hard blow, Tampa Bay lost to Boston 3-6. However, Tampa Bay, which confirmed the third place in the American League wild card game early on the 8th (Saturday), will play a wild card game (best-of-three) against the Cleveland Guardians
