Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh Pirates) and Ronald Acuna Jr. (Atlanta Braves), who are competing for the National League stealing king, were replaced after being hit in the shoulder by a ball.

Acuña Jr. started as the first batter in right field in the second leg of the double header against the New York Mets in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) held at Citi Field in New York, New York, USA on the 2nd (Korean time), but left as the game started.

Acuña Jr., who started as the lead batter in the first inning, hit a ball that hit his body. In the second strike situation, the third pitch, 93.4 mile (approximately 151km) fastball thrown by opponent starting pitcher Tyler Megill, hit Acuna Jr.’s left shoulder.

Acuña Jr., who sat on the ground, complained of pain and was eventually replaced by runner Kevin Pilar. “Acuña Jr. was replaced with a left shoulder bruise,” the Atlanta club explained.토토사이트

Local media mentioned the possibility of retaliatory deaths. This is because Atlanta pitchers allowed four balls to three Mets batters, including Jeff McNeil, Francisco Lindor, and Pete Alonso, in the first game of the doubleheader held earlier.

Acuña Jr. was unable to add a stolen base due to an early substitution. In the first game of the doubleheader, he went 3-for-5 (1 home run), 1 RBI, 1 run, and led the team to a 9-8 victory, but did not record a stolen base.

Acuña Jr., who became the National League stealing king (37) in 2019, succeeded in stealing 13 bases this season as well, ranking first in this category. Bae Ji-hwan is closely chasing Acuña Junior with a tie for second place (11).
