The water rose properly. Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) really flew up. It is worth aiming for 20 homers and 20 stolen bases for the first time as an Asian infielder.아톰카지노

Kim Ha-seong started as second baseman and first batter in the 2023 major league Philadelphia Phillies home match held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on the 17th (hereinafter Korean time), 2 hits in 5 at-bats (1 home run), 1 RBI, 2 was active in scoring. His 0.260 batting average rose to 0.263.

His performance was at its peak. It may be that he has finished adapting to the extent that he can finally show off his KBO league days in the major leagues. The previous day (16th), Kim Ha-seong exploded three hits in the first game of the double header with Philadelphia, but failed to produce a hit in the second game, but got two walks and succeeded in getting on base twice.

A good flow continued into the match today. Ha-seong Kim hit his 11th home run of the season in his first at-bat, a record he set last year in 150 games and produced in just 89 games this year. Based on the home run in his first at-bat, Kim Ha-seong continued his 13 consecutive on-base streak, starting against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the 30th of last month.

From the first at-bat, Kim Ha-seong showed off his climax of hitting. Kim Ha-seong, who started as the lead batter in the first inning, scooped up a sweeper that dropped low, out of the 86.1 mile (approximately 138.6 km) strike zone on the 5th pitch of Philadelphia “ace” Jack Wheeler. The launch angle was very high at 32 degrees, but the ball hit by Kim Ha-seong flew quickly at a speed of 93.3 miles (about 150.2 km) and led to a solo home run that slightly crossed the left wall.

Ha-sung Kim’s first home run in the second half and his 11th home run of the season tied with the most home runs in a season recorded last year. And this home run was the second leadoff home run in his personal career, 21 days after the game against the Washington Nationals on June 26. The flight distance is 352 feet (about 107.3 m).

In the second at-bat, Ha-seong Kim could not hide his regretful feelings. Kim Ha-seong, who entered the plate with a chance to score with one company and second base in the top of the 3rd inning with a 1-0 lead, played Wheeler and 5 pitches again this time. And on the fifth pitch, Wheeler’s 95.6-mile (about 153.9 km) sinker was stuck on the outside course. The referee’s decision is a strike.

After Kim Ha-seong struck out, he shook his head and protested to the referee, but the result did not change. Ha-seong Kim expressed his regret, but Wheeler’s 5th pitch was a very light outside strike. Although there is a difference in height, the fact that the 96 mile (approximately 154.5 km) four-seam fastball in the second pitch, which was formed on a relatively similar course, was judged to be a ball, seems to have influenced Ha-seong Kim’s pioneering plan.

The result of the third at-bat was also disappointing. Ha-seong Kim once again entered the plate at the start of the 5th inning, leading 3-1, with 1 company and 2nd base. The batted ball Kim Ha-seong hit was a very good hit with a whopping 107 miles (approximately 172.2 km), but it was sucked into the glove of Philadelphia third baseman Drew Ellis and withdrew with a straight hit.

On this day’s defense, Kim Ha-seong’s performance did not stand out much until the middle and second half of the game. The reason I had to do that was because of Jake Cronenworth. Cronenworth defended the infield by demonstrating a solid defense that caught every ball that Ha-seong Kim could handle based on a wide range of defense. Kim Ha-seong only started catching the ball at the end of the game and showed off a neat defense.

Kim Ha-seong, who had been producing good batting balls all along, caught fire once again. In the top of the 8th inning, trailing by 3-5, there were no runners from two outs. Kim Ha-seong hit Philadelphia’s changed pitcher Gregory Soto’s 89.3 mile (approximately 143.7 km) slider on the second pitch and produced a sharp batted ball with an exit velocity of 102.6 mph (approximately 165.1 km).

The batted ball hit by Ha-seong Kim led to a 357-foot (approximately 108.8m) batted ball that stretched farther than the home run in the first at-bat. However, because the launch angle was slightly low at 19 degrees, it became a double that hit the left wall directly. Starting with Kim Ha-sung’s double, San Diego had a chance to load the bases, and pinch hitter Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a timely hit with 2 RBIs to tie the game.

The game was decided in the bottom of the 12th inning. Philadelphia created a chance for third base with a successful sacrifice bunt by Yohan Rojas from second base. San Diego infielders such as Kim Ha-seong and Manny Machado moved swiftly, but were unable to process the sacrifice bunt ball as a no-bound. In the end, San Diego was driven to a crisis with one out and third base, and lost 6-7 while allowing a sacrifice fly to end.
