Kim Ha-sung (San Diego Padres) achieved multi-hits in two consecutive games.
Kim Ha-sung started as a second baseman and first batter in an away game against the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2023 Major League Baseball at Bush Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, on the 31st, and scored two hits and one RBI in four at-bats.
Kim Ha-sung, who recorded multi-hits for two consecutive games, raised his season batting average to 0.278.
Kim Ha-sung, who entered his first at-bat as the leadoff hitter in the top of the first inning, succeeded in getting on base with a heavy hit against St. Louis right-hander Miles Mikolas. He then stepped on second base during Juan Soto’s sacrifice bunt and scored when Manny Machado hit a timely hit.
Kim Ha-sung, who gained momentum, faced his second at-bat in the top of the second inning with two outs and runners on first and second base. Once again, Kim Ha-sung, who faced Mikolas, even reported an RBI by bringing the runner on second base home with a hit that fell in front of the left fielder.
However, Kim Ha-sung later stepped down with a fly ball to left field in his third at-bat in the top of the fifth inning and a grounder to third base in his fourth at-bat in the top of the seventh inning with one out and a runner on second base.
Meanwhile, despite Kim Ha-sung’s performance, San Diego suffered a 4-5 walk-off defeat by St. Louis.
St. Louis’ Tommy Edman hit a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning and became the main character of the game. Edman, who also led St. Louis to victory with a walk-off hit in the previous day’s game, showed off his performance of finishing two consecutive games. 토토사이트
