Kim Ha-Sung ‘breaks the silence’ with 1 hit, 1 walk…Choi Ji-Man returns after 36 days, strikes out 1

September 17, 2023 | by pondokslot.com

After a “fire bat” month of August, San Diego Padres outfielder Ha-seong Kim broke his two-game silence with a multi-hit performance.

On Sunday (July 17), Kim started at first base and batted second against the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, USA.

He went 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored, dropping his season batting average from .266 to .265.

After leading off the top of the first inning, Kim drew a full-count walk against Oakland starter Mason Miller and advanced to second on a wild pitch. He then stole second on Fernando Tatis Jr.’s double and moved to third on Juan Soto’s single to right. 메이저놀이터

After a grounder to shortstop with one out in the second inning, Kim crushed a 94.3 mph (151.8 km/h) three-seam sinker from reliever Luis Medina to right field in the fourth inning. He retired the side in order in the fifth and eighth innings to end his day.

Joining Kim in San Diego was Choi Ji-Man, who returned to the big leagues after a 36-day absence and started at first base in the sixth spot. Choi drew a walk in the first inning, but a grounder to first base in the third and a swinging strikeout in the fifth left him 0-for-2 with a walk before he was replaced by pinch-hitter Garrett Cooper in the seventh.

Meanwhile, San Diego, which beat Oakland 5-2, won its 71st game (78 losses) and remained in fourth place in the West.
