In the bottom of the second inning, with his team leading 1-0, Bae pulled a five-pitch slider from Texas starter Dane Dunning for a double. With a 1-2 count, the odds were stacked against him, but he remained focused.
However, he didn’t get a hit in his next three at-bats.
In the fourth and sixth innings, Bae Bae-hwan had a chance to score, but he struck out and grounded out, respectively.
With the score tied 1-1 heading into the top of the seventh, Pittsburgh exploded for five runs in the bottom of the inning and held off a late Texas rally to win 6-4. The Pirates were led by Tucupita Marcano, who had a four-hit game, and starter Luis Ortiz, who went 7⅔ innings.
