Pittsburgh lost 2-6 in an away game against Cincinnati held at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio on the 2nd.
On this day, Bae Ji-hwan started and Choi Ji-man started off the bench.
Bae Ji-hwan started in the opening game of the major league for the first time in his life against Cincinnati on March 31. He led the team to victory with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 walk, 2 runs scored and 2 stolen bases. Bae Ji-hwan, who played as second baseman, started as center fielder that day. He was recognized for his talent as a versatile defender capable of both infield and outfield.
However, this day was silent from the blow. He retired by striking out consecutively in the second and third innings, then grounded to third base in the sixth and struck out again in the ninth, remaining hitless in four at-bats.
Choi Ji-man played as a pinch hitter after two deaths in the beginning of the 9th inning when he was trailing 2-6. He hit a sharp ball to the right field, but the game ended as it was caught with a straight hit in front of the fielder. Choi Ji-man, who did not play in the opening game, opened the season with a pinch hit.
Bae Ji-hwan joined Pittsburgh in 2018 after graduating from high school and made his big league debut at the end of last season. After last season, Choi Ji-man was traded from Tampa Bay to Pittsburgh, and the two Korean batters started the season as teammates in Pittsburgh.
