‘Byeongsal hit → Frustrated by 2 mistakes’ Kim Ha-sung and ‘Keystone combination’ saved… The team has won 3 consecutive games – 2nd place again

Kim Ha-sung (29, San Diego Padres) bowed his head after making a mistake for the first time in a long time, but he scored a hit.

Kim Ha-sung started as the eighth batter shortstop in the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Petco Park in San Diego, California on the 22nd (Korea time) and recorded one hit in four at-bats.

As a result, his batting average for this season slightly increased from 0.214 to 0.215. His on-base percentage and slugging percentage fell from 0.329 to 0.377 to 0.328 and 0.375, while his on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS) fell to 0.703. 토토사이트 순위

He got off to a bad start. Taking the batter’s box with runners on the first and second bases with one out in the bottom of the second inning when the San Diego Padres led 1-0, Kim watched the opponent team’s starting pitcher Colin Leah’s first pitch, fouled out the second pitch, and hit the ball with a four-seam fastball, but the ball headed toward the second base with a double play.

Kim Ha-sung, who took the batter’s box with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning when his team was being dragged 1-4, targeted the sweeper in the middle with a ball count of 0-2 this time, but the ball that emerged weakly was sucked into the glove of second baseman Bryce Turang.

Kim Ha-sung hit a 95.6-mile-per-hour (153.8km) sinker in the bottom of the sixth inning when his team came from behind 5-4 to create a clean right-handed hit. Kyle Higashioka also got a walk to fill the bases, but Araez grounded out to second base and failed to score.

There was a regrettable scene in the defense. Kim Ha-sung, who often made mistakes due to replacement of his gloves in the early days of the season, has since sought stability and been displaying defense worthy of the nickname “Awesome Kim.” He caught Churio’s tricky ground ball with runners on the second base with one out and threw the ball, but Luis Arraez failed to catch the one-bound ball. Meanwhile, the runner on the second base made his way to the third base. Originally, it was recorded as an infield hit, but in the meantime, the runner on the second base reached the third base and recorded it as an error.

The scene in the seventh inning was even more regrettable. Kim Ha-sung, who caught Frelik’s ground ball well with runners on first and second bases with two outs and runners on first and second bases with his team leading 5-4, stepped on the second base himself and sprayed the ball to the first base, but he was able to play a double play in timing, but the throw to the first base fell to the side and recorded an error. Meanwhile, the third baseman homered and tied the score at 5-5.

Kim Ha-sung, the winner of last season’s NL utility Gold Glove, has already committed 10 errors this season. He played an outstanding defense with eight in 2022 and seven last year, but this season it was painful that he couldn’t adapt after replacing his glove at the beginning of the season, and he made his first double-digit error since his big league debut.

He managed to turn the tables and hit defense in the top of the eighth inning. He made no mistake three times. Kim Ha-sung took over the ball to Cronenworth, who caught Contreras’ ball, touched the base on the second base, and lightly sprayed the ball to the first base to complete a double play.

San Diego, which scored the first run in the second inning, tied the game 1-1 in the top of the fifth inning with a stolen base following Tyler Black’s walk, an infield hit by Churio’s grounder and Kim Ha-sung’s throw, followed by Turang’s timely RBI.

Milwaukee continued to run to 4-1 with consecutive RBI timely hits by William Contreras and Christian Yelich and additional timely hits by Rhys Hoskins.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, the San Diego Padres trailed the game 3-4 with Kyle Higashioka’s walk and Araez’s superior two-run homerun (No. 2). In the bottom of the sixth inning, he hit a homerun (No. 12) to Cronenworth. Then, Manny Machado’s double and Donovan Solano’s timely RBI made a come-from-behind victory 5-4.

It was tied at 5-5 due to Kim Ha-sung’s throwing error. His teammates saved Kim Ha-sung. In the bottom of the seventh inning, with one out, Jurickson Profar hit a double and Cronenworth hit a left-handed hit, bringing the come-from-behind runner home. Machado and Merrill then hit consecutive hits, Solano’s walk gave a run,

In Kim Ha-sung’s at-bat, he ran away with one more point by making an error-prone play on a grounder toward second base with one out.
