Kim Ha-seong recorded a hit in five consecutive games, and the San Diego Padres succeeded in escaping their three-game losing streak.
San Diego won 7-3 in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the San Francisco Giants held at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA on the 2nd (Korean time).
Michael Waka, who took the mound as a starter, earned his 11th win (2 losses) of the season with 6 hits (1 home run), 6 strikeouts, 2 walks, and 2 runs allowed in 6 innings.
Kim Ha-seong, who started as a second baseman and first hitter, recorded hits in five consecutive games with one hit and one run in five at-bats. His season batting average remained at .277. He has been on a hit streak since the trip to the St. Louis Cardinals on the 29th of last month.
The first point belonged to San Francisco. San Diego starting pitcher Waka hit a solo home run from Wilmer Flores with one out. But the game quickly turned around. It started with Kim Ha-seong.
In Ha-seong Kim’s first at-bat in the first inning, he targeted San Francisco starter Tristan Beck’s four-seam fastball with a speed of 94.6 miles per hour on the fourth pitch and hit a heavy hit. In the next at-bat, Fernando Tatis Jr. attacked Beck’s first pitch and hit a two-run home run over the right field wall, allowing Ha-seong Kim to hit home.
The game ended 2-1. Afterwards, back-to-back home runs were completed, including Juan Soto’s solo shot in mid-month, putting San Diego ahead 3-1.
San Diego ran away with one more run in the second inning. The first batter, Luis Campusano, hit a double. After Matthew Batten retired with a fly ball to center field, Trent Grisham hit a timely hit to right-center.
Kim Ha-seong, who entered his second at-bat with the team leading by two runs, retired with a fly ball to right field. He swung his bat at Beck’s 6th pitch sweeper at 79.3 miles per hour, but it was caught as a fly ball to right field.
San Diego scored 2 points in the 3rd inning. Every inning scored from the first inning, and Ha-seong Kim took his third at-bat in the third inning. But the result was a ground ball in front of the second baseman.
San Diego lost one point in the top of the fourth inning when they were ahead 6-1 thanks to timely hitting by Campusano and Batton. Waka allowed a sacrifice fly to Brandon Crawford with one out and runners on second and third base.
However, he stayed on the mound without allowing any additional runs, and the bullpen also allowed one run to close the remaining inning.
Ha-seong Kim hit a double play at the plate after Grisham, the first batter, hit a heavy hit in the bottom of the sixth inning with the team leading 6-1. In the 8th inning at bat, he retired with a ground ball in front of the third baseman.온라인바카라
In the top of the 9th inning, the third pitcher, Scott Barlow, took the mound and was in danger of having the bases loaded with one out. He gave up a well-struck ball to Blake Sabol. He then gave up a ball to Lamonte Wade Jr. and gave up one run by pushing it away.
However, Flores was guided to a ground ball in front of the shortstop, and shortstops Xander Bogaerts and Kim Ha-seong’s stable throws resulted in a double play, resulting in a 4-point victory.
