His only hit of the day was a double, his 14th of the season. It extended his hitting streak to three games and kept his season average at .241.
Bae produced a long ball in his first at-bat. He took an 89.6 mph (144.2 km/h) sinker from starter Bryce Elder that landed just inside the left field foul line. Bae ran straight to second base and slid in for the out. However, he was unable to score on the follow-up hit.
He was silent in the next at-bat. In the third inning, Bae was stranded at second base on a grounder to shortstop, and in the sixth inning, he led off with a single to left field.
Bae reached on a grounder to shortstop with one out in the eighth inning. He stole second on a Brian Reynolds single, but was stranded at third when Keeb Bryan Hayes’ throw to the plate went straight to the second baseman.
Pittsburgh (65-76), which had its two-game winning streak snapped, fell to 2-8 after starter Mitch Keller was tagged for eight runs on 12 hits (two homers) in 5 1/3 innings.
