Ha-seong Kim먹튀검증 (San Diego Padres), who missed a game due to an injury, reported a comeback with hits and hobbies.
Kim Ha-seong played as the 8th hitter and shortstop in an MLB (US Professional Baseball) away game against the New York Yankees on the 28th, recording 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats. The season batting average slightly increased from 0.237 to 0.239.
In his first at-bat against the Washington Nationals on the 26th, he was hit in the left knee by a ball he hit and was immediately substituted. He was in so much pain that he had to be supported by two trainers. There was concern about serious injuries, but the results of the examination showed that it was a simple bruise.
Kim Ha-seong, who returned from a game break on the 27th, got a hit in his third at-bat in a 1-1 match. He pulled Michael King’s first pitch sinker from the second out and 1-2 base and connected it with a timely hit that slipped between the third baseman and shortstop. It was his 17th RBI of the season. Ha-seong Kim went round 1st base and settled down to 2nd base while the opponent’s defense was relaying play at home, and then danced with a joyful expression.
Ha-sung Kim’s presence also shone in defense. He hit a double that Yankees DJ Le Mei-Yu fell into the left field line in the first inning situation with one out and 1-3. A runner on third base came in, and even Anthony Rizzo, who was a runner on first base, dug home. Ha-seong Kim ran to the left outfield line, received a throw from the left fielder, and threw a long ball home to catch the runner. It was a fast and accurate throw that the catcher waited for the sliding Rizzo and tagged out. In the 5th inning, Kim Ha-seong caught a ground ball that seemed to be heading toward the second base base and threw it to first base while spinning his body, putting the batter runner out.
The Padres lost 2-3. At the end of the 10th inning, with one out and 2nd and 3rd base, Yankees’ Isaiah Cainerpalepa hit a run-off hit.
