‘King of Patience’ Kim Ha-seong also explodes annoyed… Unsatisfactory ball judgment stopped 15G consecutive on-base… SD also loses the honor

Ha-seong Kim appeared as a pinch hitter in the top of the 7th inning in the 2023 Major League away game against the Toronto Blue Jays held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 21st (Korean time) and recorded no hits in one at-bat.

At the same time, the consecutive on-base record that continued from the Pittsburgh Pirates expedition on the 30th of last month to the Toronto game the previous day (20th) was also broken at ’15’. It was the longest personal record, increasing one more from the previous 14 consecutive games. Both season batting average and on-base percentage fell from 0.264 and 0.352 to 0.263 and 0.351, respectively. San Diego, which had two consecutive victories, also lost 0-4, recording 46 wins and 51 losses, maintaining 4th place in the National League West Division.

When Toronto selected right-hander Chris Bassett as the starting pitcher, San Diego gave Kim Ha-seong (right-hander batting average 0.249) a break. However, when the team ended up with 4 hits by the end of the 7th inning, Ha-seong Kim was put in instead of Alfonso Rivas at 1 out 1 base.

Before the game, Kim Ha-seong was the most patient hitter in the major leagues with 4.41 pitches per at-bat. The San Diego Union Tribune, a leading newspaper in the San Diego area, also said on the 20th, “Padres second baseman’s growth can be seen in patience, poise at plate.”

However, Ha-seong Kim, the ‘King of Endurance’, also exploded annoyed feelings at the difficult ball judgment. Team Maya’s first pitch sinker, Ha-seong Kim, also nodded in agreement. The second ball was disappointing. Meiza threw an 85.2 mph slider at a position about two balls higher than the first pitch, and the ball was also judged a strike by the referee.

Then, Kim Ha-seong made a gesture that said a little higher with a hand gesture and did not hide the expression of regret. According to the ballot chart printed on MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, Mayza’s second pitch was a ball that was slightly above the strike zone. Depending on the referee, it was a position where the ball could be given enough, so Kim Ha-seong’s regret was not something that could not be understood.

The bad luck didn’t stop there. Ha-seong Kim scooped up a low-dropping slider from Maya. The ball made it out of the infield and into the glove of first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. However, first base runner Trent Grisham completely misjudged the batted ball, so he was late to return base, and Kim Ha-seong’s ordinary infield fly turned into the worst hit that caused a double play that ended the inning in an instant.

Even after that, the frustrating appearance of the San Diego batting line continued. In the 8th and 9th innings, he reached base with a single hit, but both times he suffered the humiliation of a 0-4 loss as subsequent hitters recorded double hits.

San Diego starter Blake Snell suffered 8 losses (6 wins) in the season, suffering from a difficult pitching game with 5 hits, 7 walks, 4 strikeouts and 1 run in 5 innings. Zander Bogatz, who started as the fourth hitter and shortstop, recorded 3 hits in 4 at-bats, but the remaining 10 batters, including pinch hitters, produced only 3 hits. 4 double strokes cut off the flow of batting lines.

Toronto starter Bassett succeeded in 10 wins (5 losses) in the season with a quality start with 4 hits, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings. Guerrero Jr. and Alejandro Kirk helped Bassett win with superior solo shots and left-handed two-run shots, respectively.
