Pittsburgh’s Choi, who had been sidelined for three games because of his weakness against “left-handed pitchers,” erased both his weakness and disgrace with a loud, intense ceremonial roar.

Trailing by two runs, Pittsburgh had the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning.

A grounder in front of the shortstop appeared to be flying out for a double play, but it was the video review that changed the game.

The inning was over, runners on first and third with two outs, and then a walk to load the bases.

Choi didn’t miss.

He lined a huge two-run double to the right field fence.

[Local replay: this hit gives Pittsburgh the lead].

The roar was as loud as a blast for Seol, who had been benched for the last three games because he was stuck in the “platoon system,” where pitchers are dropped from the starting lineup based on their type.

The left-handed hitter proved that he could take advantage of left-handed pitchers, which was considered a ‘weakness’ of Choi’s.

Choi’s game-winning hit snapped a five-game losing streak for Pittsburgh.

Kim Ha-seong extended his hitting streak to 15 games with an acrobatic hit.

Replicating his spectacular home run three days earlier when he bent his right knee and became off-centre, he induced a false swing in the third inning and picked up a low pitch like a golf ball.

In the fifth inning, he stole a base with his quick feet after being hit by a pitch.

It was his 18th stolen base of the season, putting him within striking distance of his first 20 in his major league debut.
