Ah! Kim Ha-sung, 113m long distance, home run was stolen and a clothesline hit was caught, but the decisive RBI was avenged… SD 3-1 TEX

San Diego Padres Kim Ha-sung scored a decisive RBI in the team’s victory.

In the last of three consecutive away games against the Texas Rangers held at Globe Life Field on Saturday (Korea time), Kim had no hits and an RBI from three times at bat. The San Diego Padres won the game 3-1.

However, Kim Ha-sung showed off his best batting performance by recording three hard hits of 95 miles or more in four at-bats and hitting a home run-like hit that flew the furthest among the balls hit by hitters from both teams. Notably, he contributed to his team’s victory by scoring an RBI single with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning.

With this, Kim Ha-sung marked a batting average of 0.225 (67 hits in 298 at-bats), 10 homers, 39 RBIs, 46 points, 47 walks, 17 steals, a on-base percentage of 0.331, a slugging percentage of 0.379, and an OPS of 0.710.

Playing as the seventh shortstop, Kim made a sharp hit from his first at bat. After hitting a homerun-like hit after two outs in the second inning when the score was 0-0, Kim had to suffer from bad luck. With the count of 3B1S, Texas starter Max Scherzer’s 5th pitch of 92.3 miles toward his body seemed to go over the fence.

However, left fielder Wyatt Langford jumped and reached out his glove over the fence to snatch the ball. It was the longest flying ball in the game.

Statcast predicted that the hit would have been home runs in 27 of the 30 stadiums. Globe Life Field, however, was included in the three stadiums where no home runs are allowed. In other words, if Langford had failed to catch the ball, it would have jumped out after hitting the fence.

He also hit a well-hit ball in his second at-bat in the fifth inning with a 1-0 lead, but was blocked by his opponent’s defense again. He pulled an 81.4 mile changeup that fell to the lower course of Scherzer’s body with a ball count of 1B2S and hit a 103.8 mile-speed laundry line, but was sucked into the glove of third baseman Josh Smith.

In the seventh inning, when a tight 2-1 match continued. Kim Ha-sung scored a very valuable RBI.

Leading Donovan Solano made a chance for a third base with no outs with a double on the left field line and Scherzer’s wild pitch. David Peralta grounded out to shortstop, with one out and third base. With Texas replacing starter Scherzer with right-hander Jose Ureña, Kim Ha-sung entered the batter’s box.

Having sent two 96.7 miles of fastballs with consecutive strikes, Kim picked three balls that fell out, and drove them to full count. He then lightly pulled on the 89.3-mile slider that flew into the middle of the sixth pitch, and hit a line drive to the left. The ball, which flew at 17 degrees from the firing angle and 94.6 miles, was caught by left fielder Wyatt Langford through a jump catch at the 302 feet distance. Meanwhile, third baseman Solano rushed home with ease, widening the gap to 3-1.

It is the first time in four days that Kim Ha-sung added an RBI since the Boston Red Sox game on the 1st, and the sacrifice fly is the third of the season after the Oakland Athletics game on the 11th of last month.

Kim Ha-sung grounded out to shortstop in the final at-bat with one out and a runner on the second base in the ninth inning when his team was leading 3-1. He pulled a fastball well in the middle of Ureña’s sixth pitch of 96.9 miles, but he was out as it flowed quickly toward the shortstop. The speed of his hit was 104.5 miles, the fastest among his hits on the day. 먹튀검증

San Diego Padres starting pitcher Michael King gave up four hits and one run in five ⅓ innings to secure his seventh win (five losses) this season. Scherzer started the season with six hits, one walk, three strikeouts and three runs in six ⅓ innings, but ended up losing the game. He won one game and lost two games with an ERA of 2.70.

San Diego scored the first run in the top of the fourth inning with Solano hitting a double that fell inside the left foul line, and Jurickson Profar pulled Scherzer’s 85.9-mile slider and hit a solo shot slightly over the right fence to lead 2-0.

When Texas followed one point with Langford’s timely hit in the bottom of the sixth inning, Kim Ha-sung opened the score with a decisive sacrifice fly in the seventh inning to seal the victory.

San Diego, which finished the three consecutive away games in Texas with two wins and one loss and succeeded in the winning series for the fourth consecutive time, remained firmly in second place in the National League and second place in the wild card with 48 wins and 43 losses.
