Proving that he’s an all-around SD man Kim Ha-sung came from behind and hit the winning ball, and the defense to third base is perfect
Kim Ha-sung (27), the all-around man of the San Diego Padres, has been reborn as the main character of the winning hit. The third base defense, which was taken over by Manny Machado’s injury, also received a pass.
Kim Ha-sung started as the ninth third baseman in Game 1 of the 2022 Major League Baseball’s third consecutive home game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on the 21st (Korea Standard Time), and played with one hit, two RBIs and one walk.
The hit came from his first at-bat. He hit a timely two-run come-from-behind hit in the second inning with two outs and runners on second and third bases. He met Arizona starter Jack Davis and hit a 92.1 mile (148 km) sinker after a seven-ball game in the 2B-2S to lead to a heavy hit. It was the moment of the day’s winning hit.
In the fourth inning with a 3-1 lead, he ended the inning with a grounder to shortstop with two outs and runners on first base. He didn’t hit Davis’ change-up well in a 2B-1S advantageous count.
He got on base again in his third at-bat. In the seventh inning with a 4-1 lead, there was no runner with one out, and Kyle Nelson picked up a straight walk to complete the multi-base. However, the pitcher saw through the stolen base attempt and ran out between first and second base.
Thanks to the winning hit, Kim Ha-sung slightly raised his batting average for the season from .222 to .225.
His third base defense was also stable. Fernando Tatis Jr.’s departure kept him in charge of shortstop, but Manny Machado was injured and took third base, but he contributed to the victory with his easy defense.
San Diego, ranked second in the National League West, beat Arizona 4-1 on the back of Kim Ha-sung’s winning hit and erased the lead LA Dodgers with a three-game losing streak. 42 wins and 27 losses in the season.
Japanese major leaguer Darvish Yu, who started as a starting pitcher, won his seventh win of the season (3 losses) with four hits, two walks, five strikeouts and one run in seven innings 파워볼사이트
On the other hand, fourth-place Arizona, which failed to win two consecutive games, had 32 wins and 37 losses. Starter Davis was defeated with four runs in six innings.
