Choi Ji-man Becomes 1st Korean to Have Hit in World Series

Choi Ji-man of the Tampa Bay Rays has become the first Korean to have a hit in the World Series.

As the starting first baseman and clean-up hitter, Choi went one-for-three and scored twice in the second game of the seven-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on Wednesday.

The left-handed batter was designated a pinch hitter in the first game the previous day but did not bat, as the Dodgers brought in a left-handed pitcher.

Choi struck out at the top of the first inning, but in the fourth he got on base with a ground ball due to a fielding error, and scored on Joy Wendle’s two-run double. He led off the sixth inning with a single, his first World Series hit. He took third base on Manuel Margot’s single and scored again on Wendle’s sacrifice fly.

The Rays beat the Dodgers 6-4, tying the series at 1-1. The third game takes place on Friday.
