‘Korean Big Leaguers’ Kim Ha-seong and Bae Ji-hwan made a long-awaited hit on the same day. In particular, Kim Ha-seong hit base four times in one game for the sixth time after advancing to the U.S. and hit the ground all over the place. However, he could not prevent the team from losing.
On the 18th (Korean time), Kim Ha-seong started as a 6th hitter and third baseman in the game against the Kansas City Royals held at Petco Park in San Diego, USA, and recorded 2 hits and 1 run in 3 at-bats. He also picked off two walks. The season’s batting average rose to 0.235. This is the first time Ha-seong Kim has been on base more than four times in a game this season. He made 3 on-base appearances 5 times. Last season he had 4 or more bases in 5 games.먹튀검증
From his first at-bat in the second inning, the feeling of hitting was good. Kim Ha-seong, who entered the plate without a runner on the first run, attacked the second pitch of Kansas City opener Carlos Hernandez and made a left-handed hit.
Kim Ha-seong, who walked out in the 4th inning, pulled left-hander Josh Taylor’s slider in the 6th inning safely on first base and scored another hit, sending 1st base runner Matt Carpenter to 2nd base. After that, an infield hit and a balk broke out and stepped on home plate. He got his second walk in the seventh to complete the game on four bases.
He also produced impressive scenes on defense. In the 5th inning, trailing by 1 point, Kansas City had a chance to get 1 out and 2nd base. Instead of catching eighth hitter Nate Eaton’s slow ball and throwing it to first base, he chose to play against the runner on second base from third base. Gambling worked. The runner initially slipped into the base avoiding the tag, but failed to apply the brakes in time and fell off his hand.
However, it had nothing to do with victory. Again, the stuffy batting line was a problem. In the 4th and 7th innings, he had many scoring opportunities with 1 out and 1 bases loaded, but both times were scoreless. While Manny Machado, the “350 million dollar man,” was sluggish and even suffered a fracture, leaving the front row, Fernando Tatis Jr. and Juan Soto, who were in the third and fourth positions, also went silent with no hits.
Pittsburgh Pirates Bae Ji-hwan also reported a hit on the same day. Starting as the 7th hitter in center field against the Detroit Tigers, he recorded 1 hit and 1 run in 5 at-bats. Pittsburgh won 8-0.
