Ha-seong Kim of the San Diego Padres, who led the team to victory by hitting the final stroke the day before, could not continue the upward trend.
Ha-seong Kim started as a 7th hitter and second baseman in an away game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on the 24th (Korean time).
Kim Ha-seong, who got a walk in his first at-bat in the first inning, went hitless in the next three at-bats. In his second at-bat, he retired with a fly ball to right field and finished the other two at-bats with a fly ball and strikeout. The final result is a no-hit in 3 at-bats. His batting average dropped from 0.203 to 0.194. He dropped to the 10th level a day after raising it to the 20th level.
The team won two straight against Arizona and finished their four-game series against Arizona with a record of 3 wins and 1 loss. Starting pitcher Darvish Yu became the winning pitcher with 2 hits, 5 walks, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 5⅔innings, and Matt Carpenter led the team victory with 3 hits and 5 RBIs in the other line.
Meanwhile, Bae Ji-hwan of the Pittsburgh Pirates started as the 8th hitter and center fielder in the home game against the Cincinnati Reds, and was sluggish with no hits in 3 at-bats. His season batting average dropped from 0.217 to 0.206. 메이저놀이터
In the third at-bat, there was also a decision that was difficult to understand. At the end of the 7th inning, Bae Ji-hwan, who had a ball count of 0-2 on 1st and 2nd base, judged the slider on the 3rd pitch to be high, but the referee declared a strike and struck out as it was.
Despite Bae Ji-hwan’s sluggish performance, Pittsburgh won 7 consecutive victories, taking down the Milwaukee Brewers and rising to the sole lead in the Central Division of the National League.
