Ha-seong Kim entered the game as a pinch hitter and even scored a goal that broke the balance, but the San Diego Padres ended up losing after an underwater battle.
Kim Ha-seong appeared as a pinch hitter in an away game against the Colorado Rockies held at Coors Field on the 12th (Korean time) and recorded 1 at-bat, 1 walk and 1 run.메이저놀이터
In the top of the 6th inning, trailing 3-1, Ha-seong Kim, who came in as a pinch hitter from Lougned Odor at bat, was out with a floating ball to center fielder. In the ball count 1B2S, Colorado left-hander Brad Hand’s 80.7 mile slider in the middle of the 4th pitch was well received and flew to the front of the fence, but was caught by the center fielder.

Kim Ha-seong, who entered second base during the defense at the end of the 6th inning, went on base with a walk in the second at-bat in the top of the 9th inning when the score was tied 3-3, then hit home with a wild throw from the opponent. After one death, Kim Ha-seong, who picked out the inside sinker of Colorado right-hander Justin Lawrence’s 5th pitch at 94.3 mph and walked away, took advantage of an error by opponent right fielder Randall Grichick when Matt Carpenter hit right-handed and ran to third base.
Trent Grisham withdrew due to a foul fly by the catcher, and 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base. Ha-seong Kim dug home while Lawrence’s outer 96.0 mile sinker fell back on the 4th pitch in Fernando Tatis Jr.’s at-bat. San Diego, who took a 4-3 lead with Kim Ha-sung’s score, could continue their 4-game winning streak if they defended well in the bottom of the 9th inning.

Colorado’s attack started in the bottom of the 9th inning with heavy raindrops. San Diego put left-hander Tom Cosgrove, who took the mound after one out in the eighth inning, to the mound again in the ninth inning. Cosgrove gave up a solo home run to left-handed hitter Ryan McMahon to tie the game 4-4.
The Colorado dugout, which turned the game to the starting point, was in a frenzy. However, at this time, as the heavy rain became more intense, the match was stopped when the Coors Field ground turned into a sea of water. And after 1 hour and 25 minutes, Colorado’s attack in the bottom of the ninth continued.
San Diego’s right-hander Brent Honeywell came to the mound and caught both batters well, but left-hander Nolan Jones hit a solo shot in the right middle. In the ball count 1B1S, the 86.9 mile changeup on the 3rd pitch accurately fell right in the middle, and it was properly caught by Jones’ bat. The batted ball was a large arch that flew 472 feet (144 m) and landed on the second deck of the middle-right spectators.
In the bottom of the 8th inning with San Diego leading 3-1, it was painful that setup man Luis Garcia, whom they trusted, gave up a two-run home run to Coco Montes to tie the game. San Diego starter Blake Snell gave up 3 hits, 12 strikeouts and 1 run in 7 innings, but missed the victory due to bullpen hunting.
San Diego, whose three-game winning streak was suspended, marked 31-34 and maintained 4th place in the NL West, falling away from the leader Arizona Diamondbacks by 9 games. In the NL Wild Card, they maintained a 2.5 game gap over the third-place Milwaukee Brewers.
Kim Ha-seong, who failed to add a hit in the last two games, dropped his batting average to 0.241 (46 hits in 191 bats), and marked 5 homers, 20 RBIs, 26 runs, and an OPS of 0.713.
