Tuchman started as the designated hitter in the 2023 major league match against the Milwaukee Brewers held on the 6th (Korean time) at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, recording 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 2 RBIs, 2 runs, 2 walks, and the team contributed to the 4-3 win.
Tuchman came out as the lead hitter in the top of the first inning and withdrew with a fly ball to center fielder. However, in the top of the 3rd inning, he came out as the lead batter and reached base with a hit ball. Then, when Seiya Suzuki was at bat, he advanced to second base due to a catch error by first baseman Owen Miller. After that, Suzuki and Ian Happ’s consecutive hits broke out, and Tuchman homered.
Tuchman got on base with a walk in the top of the fifth. Afterwards, Nico Horner struck out, but with a Suzuki hit and a Hep walk, the bases were loaded with one out. However, Dansby Swanson scored a double hit and failed to score. In the top of the 7th inning, he was out on a ground ball to the third baseman.
An opportunity came to Tuchman in the top of the ninth inning when he was trailing 1-3. He came to bat in a 2nd out 2nd and 3rd base situation. He had a game with Devin Williams that went all the way to eight pitches and pushed a four-seam fastball to hit a timely double that tied the game with two RBIs. Tuchman, who had tied the score, roared. Then, in Horner’s at-bat, third baseman Brian Anderson made a catch error. Tuchman managed to turn around third base and come home.
In the bottom of the ninth, Adbert Alzoray got on the mound and took care of three batters with one hit to secure the victory.
Tim Stebbins of Major League Baseball’s official homepage’MLB.com’ said on social media (SNS), “At the beginning of the ninth inning, Milwaukee’s chance of winning was 92.9%.”
“The Cubs went on base with two missed hits and Tuchman was good at the plate. Then when the ball came in play, we made a mistake. That’s all,” Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said.
“It was thrilling,” said Alzoray, who recorded his fifth save of the season, about the comeback in the top of the ninth. “It got my adrenaline going from 0 to 200,” he said.
Tuchman played for the Hwanhwa Eagles last season. He appeared in all 144 games and had 166 hits, 12 home runs, 43 RBIs, 88 runs scored, and 19 stolen bases for a batting average of 0.289 and 0.795 OPS. However, he failed to renew his contract with Hanwha and signed a minor contract with the Cubs.
Tuchman was called up as a replacement for Cody Bellinger, who was sidelined with a knee injury in May. He is posting 31 hits, 2 homers, 19 RBIs, 23 runs, 0.250 OPS and 0.706 OPS this season. He has established himself in the first team and continues to play consistently even after Bellinger returns.
