PIT outfielder goes 5-for-5 against brother: “It’s like a bucket list game” [Field Interview]
While his family watched, he faced off against his younger brother and led the team to a great victory. It was a dream day for Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Josh Palacios.
On the 22nd (Korean time), Palacios 바카라 started in right field for 6 home games against St. Louis at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and recorded 2 hits and 5 RBIs in 4 at-bats, leading the team to an 11-1 victory.
He showed remarkable performance in the karate. He featured a three-run home run in the fourth inning, a two-run double in the eighth, and a game-ending diving catch in the top of the ninth.
On this day, he faced his younger brother Richie Palacios for the first time in the big leagues. They faced each other several times in the minor leagues, but this is the first time in the big leagues. For this monumental moment, his parents and other family members came to the stadium.
Having an interview after the game, he said, “It is a day to remember for the rest of my life. It was like a bucket list game. It has always been my wish to play with his brother,” he said. The expression on his face when he said, “I still can’t believe it,” was recalled.
He knew his family was at the stadium that day, but he didn’t know where they were sitting. “I just pointed anywhere around the base. I wish I was in one of them. Or maybe the other spectators were in a good mood,” he laughs.
After hitting a home run that day, he shouted ‘I’m the older brother!’ I think I definitely informed you today.” He smiled.
He followed up with a walk-off home run on his last birthday, and this time he went head-to-head with his brother and had 5 RBIs. “My birthday match is a special match for me, but today’s match is a special match for my family and parents. So, I’m going to put this game at number 1. My parents deserve that kind of treatment,” he said, saying that the match was the most special match for him.
Manager Derek Shelton said: “Overall, it was a really good game. It was great,” he said, highly appreciating Palacios’ performance. He also joked, “I’ll have to look for other players to see if they don’t have brothers.”
Palacios did not leave a deep impression with a batting average of 0.212, on-base percentage, 0.252 slugging percentage, 0.363, 4 homers and 18 RBIs in 57 games until the game. I also tasted the sadness of being demoted to the minor leagues in the middle. The third season of the big leagues. He is still a player with room for improvement.
“I think he can be a more consistent player,” he said, revealing his belief that he can grow into a better player. He said, “It is true that he has not been consistent lately. He puts in a lot of effort and has the belief that he can consistently play an active role. He is practicing the basics. He’s still working hard to hit a good ball,” he said of his efforts.
Coach Shelton also pointed out that he needs to show steady performance in order to get more opportunities, saying, “To become a key player in the big leagues, you need to show steady performance at bat.”
