‘Sense Team’ Kim Ha-seong, enthusiasm for Korea and the US for his outstanding performance in air defense
‘Luxurious defense’ Kim Ha-seong’s defense is just a little better. Ha-sung Kim’s sensible offense led the San Diego Padres to a 5-3 victory.
Kim Ha-seong started as a 7th hitter and second baseman in an away game held at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, on the 27th (Korean time). He went 2 at bats, scored 2 runs, walked 2 and stole 2 bases, and was active in both offense and defense.
Kim Ha-seong, who entered his first at-bat in the top of the third inning, successfully hit Chicago starter Smiley’s 91 mph ball. However, he was forced to withdraw to a fly ball to center field due to strong winds blowing into the field.
Kim Ha-seong played 13 pitches with Smiley in the top of the 4th inning and went on base with a walk. Smiley continued to throw fastballs, probably targeting the weak point of the fast ball, and Kim Ha-seong picked it out well. Smiley, who seemed uncomfortable with this, threw a check ball against Kim Ha-seong. Kim Ha-seong, who seemed to have already noticed, ran all of a sudden and stole the second base, and Cronenworth, who was on second base토토사이트, also made a clever play by running to third base at the same time. It was the moment Ha-sung Kim recorded 20 stolen bases in his major league career. However, the follow-up hitter retired with a ground ball out and could not score.
In the beginning of the 7th inning, Kim Ha-sung hit his 200th major league hit. He pushed the outside slider to produce a clean hit. After that, Kim Ha-seong headed to third base with Grisham’s walk and Ajoka’s sacrifice bunt. Tatis’ two timely RBIs succeeded in scoring and overturned the score to 4-3.
Kim Ha-sung’s performance continued to the end. In the top of the ninth inning, he received a 98 mph (157 km) fast ball and hit the right-hander, scoring a multi-hit. Kim Ha-seong showed a strong appearance even with a fast ball. Then, he stole second base again, and made a sensible game by boldly running to third base on Sullivan’s high-flying ball. Afterwards, he scored another goal by Tatis’ timely hit, contributing to the team’s 5-3 victory.
The defense also shone ‘as expected’. At the end of the 8th inning, with one out and one on first base, Suzuki hit a ball that cut through the center. However, Kim Ha-seong caught it with a sliding catch and erased the preceding runner with a stable toss. If this ball had escaped, he could have fallen into a scoring position crisis, but Kim Ha-seong changed the atmosphere with a fantastic lake fee. In response, SPOTV caster Jeong Se-hyun praised him, saying, “It is undoubtedly Kim Ha-sung’s luxury defense.”
Fans are also cheering for Kim Ha-seong, who showed not only defense but also a sensible attack and a sense of hitting.
