The brakes were put on the good flow of Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres), who was showing off a high hitting feeling by continuing his recent 4-game hitting streak.
Ha-seong Kim started as second baseman and batsman 7 in the 2023 Major League Milwaukee Brewers home match held at Petco Park in San Diego, California on the 14th (hereinafter Korean time), and was silent with no hits in 4 at-bats.
Starting with the game against the Atlanta Braves on the 9th, Kim Ha-seong continued a good trend, raising his batting average from 0.250 to 0.289 by picking up hits in 4 consecutive games, starting with the game against the New York Mets on the 13th. However, he did not produce a single hit against Milwaukee that day, and his batting average fell to 0.262.
In the first at-bat without a runner at the bottom of the second inning, trailing 1-2, Kim Ha-seong played a game with Colin Leah to 5 pitches, but struck out on a swing at the sinker at 93.4 miles (approximately 150.3 km). And in the second at-bat at the end of the 5th inning, Leah hit a low fastball on the outside of the 6th pitch, but withdrew with a floating ball in right field.
On this day, San Diego’s batting line did not perform well as a whole, and Kim Ha-seong only entered the third at-bat at the end of the 8th inning. However, Ha-seong Kim failed to produce a hit in his third at-bat as well. Ha-seong Kim sent a ball deep into the third baseman and ran so fast that his helmet came off, but Brian Anderson’s throw reached first base’s mitt.
Kim Ha-seong made a good hit in the last at-bat with 1 out and 1 base at the end of the 10th inning, behind 3-4. However, this hit led to a straight hit to center field, ending the game without a hit.
San Diego took a knee in the first game of a three-game series against Milwaukee. The first priority was Milwaukee’s share. In Milwaukee’s first inning, lead hitter Christian Yelich walked, Rowdy Telles pulled the low-dropping curve of San Diego starter Nick Martinez, and fired a first two-run home run over the right fence. 스포츠토토
San Diego immediately followed suit. In the bottom of the first inning, with no runners and no runners, Manny Machado turned the bat without hesitation when a 93.6 mile (approximately 150.6 km) four-seam fastball was driven into the middle of the strike zone after an 8-pitch match against Milwaukee starter Leah. And the ball that left Machado’s bat led to a solo home run that went over the right wall.
Both teams showed off a tight pitching battle after exchanging one home run each. It was Milwaukee that broke the trend first. Milwaukee widened the gap to 1-3 in the top of the 5th inning when leading batter Mike Brosso hit San Diego Martinez’s 2nd high sinker and overcame the wall in the deepest middle of Petco Park.
The game, which was losing heavily, flowed in an unknown direction in the second half. In the bottom of the 8th inning, Trent Grisham hit a dramatic two-run four with 2 out and 1 base, and San Diego leveled the score at 3-3. In the end, both teams were unable to decide the game within the regular innings, and went into overtime.
It was Milwaukee who had the last laugh. In the top of the 10th inning of overtime, Milwaukee regained the lead with Tellz’s sacrifice fly from 1st out, 2nd and 3rd base. San Diego also attacked from second base safely in the bottom of the 10th inning, but could not score, and San Diego lost 3-4 and fell into a swamp of 2 consecutive losses.
