San Diego’s Kim Ha-sung adds a hit in three games…Two mistakes are a disappointment

San Diego Padres’ main shortstop Kim Ha-sung added a hit in three games.

In a home game against the Milwaukee Brewers of the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) at Petco Park in San Diego, California on the 22nd (Korea time), Kim Ha-sung started as the eighth batter and recorded one hit in four at-bats. His batting average for this season rose slightly from 0.212 to 0.215.

Kim Ha-sung, who had not been able to hit since the match against the Philadelphia Phillies on the 18th, continued his frustrating appearance by hitting a double play in his first at-bat of the day.

At the bottom of the second inning with a 1-0 lead, he was withdrawn due to a double play leading to second baseman-striker-first baseman. 사설 토토사이트

With one out in the bottom of the fifth inning, trailing 1-4, Milwaukee starter Colin Ray touched the sweeper in the middle of the third pitch and was out with a fly ball on the second base.

The hit came in the bottom of the sixth inning when his team came from behind to end the game 5-4. With two outs and a runner on the first base, Kim made a clean right-handed hit by hitting a sinking fastball outside of Milwaukee’s Jared Keynick.

Due to silence from subsequent batters, he failed to make it to the first base. With the bases loaded with one outs in the bottom of the seventh inning with the team leading 7-5, he hit a grounder to the second base, but Bryce Turang, the opponent team’s second baseman, spilled the ball backward to settle on the first base. Meanwhile, the third baserunner homered, widening the gap to 8-5.

San Diego held off the rest of the inning well to win 9-5.

Kim Ha-sung also showed regret by committing two errors in defense. In the top of the fifth inning, he caught Jackson Shrio’s ball well with a backhand with one out and second base, but his throw missed and recorded an error.

In the top of the seventh inning, with two outs and runners on the first and second bases, he caught Sal Frelik’s double play ball, stepped on the second base and threw it to the first base, but the ball flew to the wrong place, resulting in an error. Meanwhile, a runner on the third base homered and allowed a tie.

Kim Ha-sung’s errors this season have increased to 12. He had five errors in 2021, eight in 2022, and seven in 2023, and he had double-digit errors even before finishing the first half this season when he was the main shortstop.
