Mike Tuckman (33, Chicago Cubs), who played for the Hanwha Eagles in the KBO League last year, reported a hit in the Major League (MLB) in two years.
Tuckman participated in the 2023 MLB Philadelphia Phillies match at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on the 21st (Korean time) as a major defense at the bottom of the 6th inning.
In the top of the 8th inning, with the Cubs trailing 3-11, Tuchman had a chance to get to the plate.
Tuchman, who entered the at-bat with no runners in the second company, aimed for the opponent’s right-handed bullpen pitcher Conor Brogdon’s changeup and connected it with a left-handed hit.
The follow-up hitter grounded shortstop and Tuchman could not advance.
It’s been about a year and 10 months since Tuchman hit in the big leagues on July 29, 2021, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was his 135th hit in his personal big league career.스포츠토토
Ahead of the 2022 season, Tuckman, wearing a Hanwha uniform, played in all games (144 games) and scored 88 points with a batting average of 0.289, 12 home runs, 43 RBIs, and 19 stolen bases.
However, he could not renew his contract with Hanwha and returned to the United States. Tuchman signed a minor league contract with the Cubs in January of this year.
Tuchman, who started the season in the minor leagues, had a chance to make it to the big leagues when Cody Bellinger was placed on the disabled list with a knee injury.
Tuckman, who joined the big league roster on the 20th, entered the at-bat as a pinch hitter against Philadelphia on the day of registration. In the top of the 9th inning, he hit a fly ball to right field from 2nd out, 1st and 2nd base.
At the time, Philadelphia trailed 1-10 and put Cody Clemmons, who plays first base, on the mound. Clemens is the son of MLB legend Roger Clemens.
Clemmons threw a slow ball at 75 km/h, and Tuchman only hit.
However, in his second at-bat opportunity that day, he succeeded in producing a hit.
