The Yankees want to avoid Choi Ji-man, too Multi-hit, intentional 4 pitches, and 3rd batter’s qualification

In the bottom of the third inning, when Tampa Bay led 3-0 with no outs and first base, Choi Ji-man, who also hit a left-handed hit against Montgomery, went back to the dugout as he was forced out of second base with a grounder to second base, and Tampa Bay finished the inning without scoring.
Choi Ji-man, who came out as the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning, failed to get on base due to a shortstop line drive out. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Tampa Bay led 4-3 with two outs and a third base chance, but Choi Ji-man filled the empty first base as he ordered four automatic pitches from the Yankees bench.
