There are also days like this. Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) played a disappointing game, unable to carry on the hot hitting feeling from the beginning to the end of the game. When the leadoff was quiet, San Diego also failed to keep the 3 points they posted in the first inning and lost.

Kim Ha-seong started as the first batter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League away game against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on the 14th (Korean time), recording 1 hit in 4 at-bats, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and 1 run. did. His batting average for the season rose from 0.286 to 0.287 as he ran a multi-hit in two games.스포츠토토

It was a game that left a lot of regret for San Diego and Kim Ha-seong. From the first at-bat, Kim Ha-seong succeeded in scoring first with a bullet-like double at 100.4 miles per hour (about 161.6 km), showing a ‘Awesome Kim’ look. After that, it was good that he walked multiple times, but in the next three at-bats, he failed to take advantage of every chance. Other hitters also had five chances to score after the first inning, but only scored in the seventh. At the same time, San Diego recorded 56-62, 4th place, rather than 1 game away from Arizona (59-59), 3rd place in the National League district. The gap between the two teams is 3 games. Starter Seth Lugo recorded 6 hits (1 home run), 4 strikeouts and 2 runs in 5 innings, but was unable to secure a win. Cronenworth played an active role with 3 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats, but the team’s defeat faded.

Arizona’s starter Brandon Padat gradually took control, and even with 3 runs in the first half, he did his part with 9 hits, 2 walks, 8 strikeouts and 3 runs in 5⅔ innings. The Arizona batting line recorded fewer hits than San Diego (11 hits) with 10 hits for the team, but showed a concentration in the second half and achieved a winning series after 7 series since the game against the Atlanta Braves last month.

It was Kim Ha-seong, who had no room for mismatch. Kim Ha-seong, who started as the lead batter in the top of the first inning, swung his bat fiercely and produced a double into left field when Arizona starting pitcher Chris Padat’s 5th fastball was driven to the center. He was batting at 100.4 miles per hour (about 161.6 km). Soon after, Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a hit that slightly exceeded the height of the second baseman, and Ha-seong Kim sprinted home and made the first point. Afterwards, Manny Machado and Jake Cronenworth each added 1 RBI, and San Diego ran away early, 3-0.

Could it be because he gave Kim Ha-seong a double due to a mistake in the previous at-bat? In the second confrontation with Ha-sung Kim in the beginning of the second inning, Padat was careful about the ball. I spread 5 balls to the boundary of the strike zone. However, only the 4th fastball was slightly outside and was judged as a strike, and Kim Ha-seong succeeded in multi-on base in 2 games with a walk. He failed to score on a follow-up hit.

Ha-seong Kim was finally stopped by Padat. Padat met again at 1st and 2nd base at the beginning of the 4th inning, threw a ball to the bottom of the strike zone after one ball, and struck out while watching Kim Ha-sung’s three balls. It was a knife-like control that was not seen in the previous two at-bats.

As Padat gradually revived, Arizona also started a counterattack. Arizona, unable to score after one point in the first inning, pursued a point in the bottom of the fifth inning with Gerardo Ferdomo’s superior solo shot. It was fortunate that Kim Ha-seong and Sanchez stopped José Herrera from stealing second base.

Ha-seong Kim went back to bat in the top of the 6th inning with 2 outs on 1st and 2nd base, but this time he struck out 3 pitches from Miguel Castro, who had changed, leaving him with regret. At the beginning of the 7th inning, San Diego added a point with Cronenworth’s timely double with 2 out on 1st and 2nd base, but in the very next inning, 1 out and 2nd base in the bottom of the 7th inning, San Diego allowed Laudes Gurriel Jr. to run four in the left center to make the score 4-4 It became a tie.

On this day, Ha-seong Kim, unlike his usual bullying of pitchers with the number of pitches per at-bat (4.37), actively stepped forward, but the result was not good. In the top of the 8th inning, he aimed for Luis Frias’ first ball cutter, but it was only a ground ball to the third baseman.

On the other hand, Arizona showed concentration at the end of the game. In the bottom of the eighth inning, with one out, Christian Walker and Gabriel Moreno reached base with consecutive hits, and Jace Peterson walked out on an intentional fourth pitch. Here, Arizona succeeded in a 5-4 comeback as Alec Thomas scored an RBI on a sacrifice fly by center fielder.

San Diego went on base with Cronenworth walking in the ninth inning with two outs, but Sanchez struck out on a swing and lost two games in a row.
