Bae had an eight-game hitting streak from the Milwaukee Brewers on the 6th to the Nats on the 14th, but he was thoroughly dominated by Nats right-hander Zosia Gray. However, there were some questionable calls. The first at-bat in the top of the first inning was 0-0.
Bae fouled off a five-pitch cutter from Gray at 3B1S. Full count. A six-pitch, 88-mph cutter came in high. It was high at first glance, and even on MLB.com Gameday, it was above the top of the strike zone, but umpire Angel Hernandez called it a wild pitch.
Bae’s second at-bat came in the bottom of the third inning with a 1-0 lead and two runners on base. He struck out swinging on a 2B2S 87-mph cutter. His third at-bat came in the bottom of the sixth inning with the bases loaded and the score 2-0. Another bad call. At 2B2S, Gray’s 81-mph sweeper dropped outside the strike zone but was called out again for a wild pitch.
Bae had his final at-bat of the night in the bottom of the eighth inning with the bases loaded and the score 2-0. He faced left-hander Jordan Weems. He fouled off an 89-mph changeup for a grounder to short. His eight-game hitting streak came to an end.
By the way, umpire Angel Hernandez made a big splash with Korean Major League Baseball fans when he made back-to-back blown calls against Ryu Hyun-jin and Chris Flexen in the Toronto Blue Jays-Colorado Rockies game on April 2. Even local fans said, “He must be half blind”.
Pittsburgh scored two runs in the second inning on Zack Swinski’s solo shot to right and Alfredo Rivas’ solo shot to center in the fifth. It was their third straight win. Tied for seventh in the National League wild-card race at 69-78. Starter Mitch Keller improved to 12-9 on the season with eight innings of two-hit ball, striking out seven and walking one.
