Kim Ha Sung let’s eat more Your home run got stolen SD won 2-1
Kim Ha-sung (27, San Diego Padres) missed his fourth home run of the season. This is due to the opponent’s outfielder’s good defense.
Kim Ha-sung started as the sixth batter shortstop in the 2022 Major League Baseball game against the Miami Marlins at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on the 6th (Korea Standard Time), and struck out two strikeouts without hitting in three at-bats. His batting average for the season fell to 0.246 from the previous 0.259. San Diego won 2–1.
Maimaei starter Hesus Rujardo rarely gave San Diego hitters a chance except Manny Machado. Except for giving up the first shot to Machado in the bottom of the first inning and giving up the left-center winning goal in the bottom of the fourth inning when they faced 1-1, he pitched flawless. He allowed three hits, two home runs, three walks, seven strikeouts and two runs in six innings.
Kim Ha-sung faced Lujardo for the first time after one out in the bottom of the second inning with a 1-0 lead. He was at a disadvantage with a ball count of 1-2 and struck out a foul tip on a fastball of 97.7 miles per hour, swallowing his disappointment.
In the bottom of the fifth inning with a 2-1 lead, he hit a big ball in his second at-bat. He hit a 96-mile-per-hour fastball for the fourth ball count 2-1. However, the ball was sucked into the glove of left fielder Jorge Soler right in front of the fence. It was a line-drive hit, but Soler chased it well and snatched it. Luzardo, who thought he would give up a home run or a double on the fence, took off his hat and thanked Soler.
Kim Ha-sung, who reached second base, returned to the dugout with a look of regret. It was a joke that Kim Ha-sung said, “I’ll eat more rice” after hitting a double that fell off the top of the left fence against the Cincinnati Reds on the 29th of last month. If the ball had reached out a little more forcefully, it might have fallen out of the fence before it touched Soler’s glove.
Kim Ha-sung faced the changed pitcher Anthony Bath in his third at-bat with no outs and runners on first base in the bottom of the seventh inning. He held out well until the ball count 2-2, but he struck out a foul tip with a big swing on the fifth slider 토토추천
Meanwhile, San Diego starter Nick Martinez pitched well with four hits, one walk, four strikeouts and one run in seven innings, earning his second win of the season (two losses).
