It’s a crazy star. There was only one hit, but a thousand-gold final that made the San Diego Padres’ chances of a sweep zero 카지노사이트. Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres)’s clutch ability was praised as “San Diego MVP” by the reporter in charge of San Diego.
Ha-seong Kim started as 1st and 3rd baseman in the 2023 Major League home game against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Petco Park in San Diego, California on the 19th (Korean time), San Diego’s 4-0 with 4 at-bats, 1 hit, 2 RBIs and 1 run. led to victory
The season batting average was maintained at 0.281, and only the OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) was slightly reduced from 0.813 to 0.810.
The day before (18th), ESPN, an American media outlet, conducted an interim check of MVP candidates in both major leagues (MLB) this season through ‘AXE (Award Index)’. AXE is an index developed by ESPN columnist Bradford Doolittle, and is a standard for evaluating players through several formulas. Kim Ha-seong ranked 5th in the National League (NL) MVP with an AX of 133.8. It was possible to guess Kim Ha-seong’s performance this year as he placed 5th, just 0.1 behind Matt Olsen (Atlanta Braves), who had topped the major league home run record with 43 home runs before the game on the 19th.
In this game, Kim Ha-seong hit the final blow in the bottom of the 8th inning, proving why he was mentioned as an MVP candidate. San Diego recorded 59-64 and maintained a 5-game gap with the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins for third place on the wild card.
Kim Ha-seong was lucky to get on base in his first at-bat. In the top of the first inning, Brandon Pott’s 5th pitch sweeper hit the shortstop. However, as the throw to first base was so high that it was difficult for the first baseman to catch it, Ha-seong Kim sprinted and reached first base first. However, Fernando Tatis Jr.’s run-and-hit at bat failed, and he was put out at second base.
Both teams continued a tight game amid good pitching from their starting pitchers. San Diego starter Seth Lugo gave up no runs with 5 hits, 3 walks, 9 strikeouts in 6 innings, and Arizona starter Pot had more than a quality start, with 1 hit, 3 walks, 5 strikeouts and no runs in 7 innings in 7 innings.
The biggest opportunity for Arizona was 1st and 2nd bases without a hit in the top of the 5th inning. However, San Diego’s infield defense, including Kim Ha-seong, shone. First, Ha-seong Kim caught Corbin Carroll’s ground ball and put the runner out on first base. Xander Bogatz’s throw to first base was slow, so he couldn’t create a double play, but Lugo’s check on first base worked in Ketel Marte’s at-bat. San Diego first baseman Garrett Cooper was trying to catch the runner on first base, but found Perdomo, the runner on third base, who overran, and threw it to Ha-sung Kim. Kim Ha-seong earned an outcount by catching a slightly deviated throw and exquisitely tagging it. Afterwards, the base came out due to Marte’s walk and wild throw, but Tommy Pam struck out on a swing and the balance was maintained at 0-0. However, Kim Ha-seong also failed to create any chances as he withdrew from the bat with a left fielder’s ball in the 4th inning and a shortstop’s ball in the 6th inning.
San Diego staggeredly saved a golden opportunity that came only once. And the main character was Kim Ha-seong. In the bottom of the eighth, Miguel Castro, who came up instead of the pot, hit Gary Sanchez, Ben Gamel bunt, and Trent Grisham’s sacrifice bunt to make it 1 out, 2nd and 3rd base.
Ha-seong Kim, who entered the plate here, attacked Castro’s third pitch slider, which fell outside, and hit an exquisite ball that brushed the side of the shortstop. It was a weak hit with an expected batting average of only 0.150 at 88.5 miles per hour, but it broke through the gap between the Arizona infield and became a timely hit with two RBIs in the middle game.
Petco Park instantly resounded with the slogan “Ha Sung Kim”, and Fernando Tatis Jr. took advantage of this atmosphere and hit a wedge with a two-run four in the middle of the month. Petco Park goes wild with Tatis Jr.’s spectacular bat flip. San Diego Union-Tribune reporter Tom Krasovich, who saw this scene, posted on his social media account, “San Diego Padres MVP Kim Ha-seong hit 2 RBIs in a timely situation in a situation where he was driven with 2 strikes. Tatis Jr. followed with a two-run gun.” paid tribute
Closer Josh Hader, who came up next, blocked it perfectly with no walks, three strikeouts, and no runs in one inning, giving San Diego a 4-0 victory.
