Samjin → fly ball → ground ball → net → steal…Kim Ha-sung’s batting average dropped by .213 after two consecutive days of hitless silence

In the 2024 Major League Milwaukee Brewers home game held at Petco Park in San Diego, California on the 21st (Korea time), Kim Ha-sung started as the ninth shortstop and remained silent with no hits in three times at bat. He walked and stole a base in his last at-bat, but failed to produce a hit in two consecutive games.

He is experiencing poor batting performance. He has posted a batting average of 91.1 percent, or less than 100 percent, with two hits in 22 times at bat in the recent seven games. Kim had no hit in four times at bat in an away match against the Philadelphia Phillies on the previous day (on Tuesday), but fell further in his batting average for this season from 217 percent to 214 percent. The San Diego Padres won the game 7-6. 토토사이트 순위

On the day, San Diego Padres started batting in the order of Luis Arraez (first baseman), Fernando Tatis Jr. (right fielder), Jurickson Profar (designated hitter), Jake Cronenworth (second baseman), Manny Machado (third baseman), Jackson Merrill (center fielder), David Peralta (left fielder), Luis Campusano (catcher), and Kim Ha-sung (striker). Adam Mazur started the game as the starting pitcher.

Kim Ha-sung struck out as the leadoff hitter in the second inning with his team leading 4-1. He was stuck by Milwaukee starter Bryce Wilson’s curveball of 78.9 miles per hour on the fourth pitch. In the fourth inning with two outs and no runners, he was out with a fly ball to left field. In defense, he was stable by running quickly to catch a ground ball and making a running throw to catch a batter, but he rarely produced results at bat.

Kim Ha-sung was caught with a grounder in front of the shortstop in the third at-bat, with no runners in the sixth inning with two outs. In the eighth inning, when his team was leading 6-4, he walked and stole a base in the absence of two outs, but the inning ended when Arraez hit a ground ball. Meanwhile, San Diego’s starting pitcher Mazur failed to fill the fifth inning and the bullpen collapsed in the ninth inning. The center hitters did their part, but the mound was shaken.

Tatis Jr. had four hits (one home run) and one RBI, Profar had one hit and one RBI, Machado had two hits (one home run) and three RBIs, and Merrill had one hit (home run) and one RBI. Cronenworth led the team to the victory by garnering two hits, one RBI and two runs, including a walk-off home run.

The first run was taken away by one run in the first inning, but Machado’s three-run homerun hit the game to turn the game around. Merrill’s solo shot went up. With Machado and Merrill’s back-to-back home runs, San Diego was chased after with one run in the fifth inning. However, Tatis Jr. hit a solo home run over the left fence in the bottom of the fifth inning.

In the seventh inning, Tatis Jr. hit a left-handed hit with one out and no runner, and Profar hit a timely double to make the game 6-3. However, one more run was lost in the top of the eighth inning, and in the top of the ninth inning, Jeremiah Estrada committed a wild pitch with one out and runners on the first and third bases, and the game was tied 6-6. However, after Tatis Jr. and Profar struck out one after another in the bottom of the ninth inning, Cronenworth hit a walk-off solo home run over the right fence.
