The San Diego Padres’ Kim Ha-seong hasn’t been able to continue his good hitting form. One bad pitch cost him last year’s Gold Glove.

Kim went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the 2024 Major League Baseball World Series at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, on Friday.

Kim has been hitting well in his last five games. The previous day (April 4), he had a multi-hit game against the Angels with two doubles.

However, his no-hit silence dropped his season batting average to 2.2-for-4 from 2.2-for-7. The team fell to 2-4. It was the second consecutive day they came from behind to lose.

Kim struck out swinging with the bases loaded in the second inning with the score tied 0-0. He swung at a five-pitch, 바카라사이트 83.9-mile-per-hour changeup from Angels starter Patrick Sandoval and missed, sending him back to the dugout.

In his second at-bat of the fourth inning, with the score tied 1-1, he hit Sandoval’s 82.1-mph changeup with two outs, but it was hit straight to the third baseman.

In the seventh, he led off with a walk.

But Merrill flied out to center, Campusano flied out to left and Araez flied out to center.

Kim came up short in the bottom of the seventh. San Diego’s second pitcher, Yuki Matsui, walked the first batter, Willie Calhoun. He then induced Logan Ohoff to fly out to shortstop.

Shortstop Kim Ha-seong rushed forward, caught the grounder, and threw to first base, but the throw was high. Solano’s foot came off the base for the out.

The initial call was an out. But after video review, it was overturned to a save. Matsui, who hadn’t gotten an out, then gave up a walk to Adel to load the bases.

Santosu came on in relief and induced Moniak to ground out in front of the first baseman to get Tucker at third base, but gave up an RBI double to Neto with the bases loaded. A wild pitch later scored another run.

After the seventh inning, San Diego made it 4-2 in the top of the eighth on a Jake Cronenworth RBI single, but that was as close as they would get.

With runners on second and third in the eighth, 카지노사이트 추천 Kim hit a six-seam slider from the Angels’ fourth pitcher, Strickland, and retired on a grounder to shortstop. When he realized the pitch had become an infield fly ball, he slammed his bat down.
