‘Multi-Man’ Ha-seong Kim, ‘Flame’ again

‘Multi-Man’ Ha-seong Kim, ‘Flame’ again

The bat of San Diego infielder Kim Ha-seong (28) is heating up again.

Kim Ha-seong started as the first hitter and second baseman in an away game against the Major League (MLB) St. Louis held at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, USA on the 30th, and made a big success with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 walk, 1 RBI and 1 run.

Kim Ha-seong, who wrote a’multi-hit’ in 7 games after the match against Miami on the 22nd, also continued the 11-game on-base streak. He also increased his season batting average to 0.276.

Ha-seong Kim produced a hit from his first at-bat in the top of the first inning. He hit St. Louis starter Jack Thompson’s 150.8km/h body fastball on the second pitch and connected it to a heavy hit.

Kim Ha-seong went to second base with a surprise bunt by Juan Soto, the follow-up hitter, and took advantage of the opportunity for the ball thrown by the opposing catcher to first base to fall back and ran to third base.

He then scored the first goal on a sacrifice fly by Fernando Tatis. Kim Ha-seong, who stepped back with a third baseman grounder in the top of the 3rd inning, calmly chose a walk in the top of the 4th inning and succeeded in ‘multi-on-base’.

Ha-sung Kim’s second hit came in the 6th inning with 1 out and 2 base. After a full-count match with a pitcher whose opponent had changed, Kim Ha-seong touched a high ball on the body side, which rolled into an ambiguous course toward third base and led to an infield hit.

In the top of the 8th inning, leading 4-3, he hit a sacrifice fly with one out and 1st and 3rd base, giving the team a runaway score. With this RBI, Ha-seong Kim stepped on the ’50 RBI’ for the second consecutive year. He posted 59 RBIs last year.

Despite Kim Ha-seong’s performance, San Diego tied the game with a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning, leading 5-3, and in the bottom of the 10th, Tommy Hyeon-soo Edmon, who appeared as a pinch hitter, hit a finishing hit and lost 5-6.메이저놀이터

Edmund played as a keystone combination with Kim Ha-seong and the Korean national team at the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) held in March of this year.
