I’m missing… Kim Ha-seong, who bowed his head to the ‘strikeout call’, ended with 16 consecutive hits, no hits in 4 at bats
Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres)’s streak of hits was cut in 16 games. I challenged for the top spot in the Korean major leagues alone, but it ended unfortunately.메이저놀이터
Kim Ha-seong played as second baseman in the 2023 major league match against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, on the 13th (Korean time), recording no hits and 1 strikeout in 4 at bats.
San Diego has Kim Ha-seong (2nd baseman) – Fernando Tatis Jr. (designated hitter) – Juan Soto (left fielder) – Manny Machado (3rd baseman) – Xander Bogatz (shortstop) – Jake Cronenworth (1st baseman) – Luis Campusano (catcher) ) – Jose Asocar (right fielder) – Trent Grisham (center fielder). The starting pitcher is Rich Hill.
Zach Gallen’s starting pitching for Arizona was Kettel Marte (2nd base), Corbin Carroll (center field), Tommy Pham (left field), Christian Walker (1st base), Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (designated hitter), Buddy Kennedy (3 base). – Jake McCarthy (right fielder) – Nick Ahmed (shortstop) – Carson Kelly (catcher)
Kim Ha-seong struck out looking in his first at-bat in the top of the first inning. He expressed regret about the strike zone. In the 2B2S situation, Galen’s six-pitch four-seam fastball came toward him. Ha-seong Kim thought it was a ball, but a strikeout call came out. Looking at the Game Day graphic on the MLB.com official website, the 6th ball is out of the strike zone. Rather, the first pitch is a look across the border line. However, the two judgments were different.
In the bottom of the first inning, Arizona scored the first run. In a situation where there was no runner in the first company, Carroll hit a conceded double and went out. After that, Palm scored easily with 1 RBI and a timely double. Walker’s infield hit created a chance for one out and first and second base. However, as Gurriel struck out and Kennedy struck out, he was unable to score an extra point.
Kim Ha-seong came out in the second at-bat in the top of the 3rd inning without a runner, but withdrew due to a floating ball from center fielder. In the third at-bat in the top of the 5th inning, he hit Gallon’s 81.2 mph (approximately 130 km/h) knuckle curve, but was blocked by third baseman Kennedy’s lake rain and retreated with a third baseman ground ball.
Arizona added a score in the bottom of the third. Marte hit a fly ball to left field, Carroll struck out, and Pham hit a double. Then, Walker, who came out to bat, pushed Hill’s 85.8 mile (approximately 138 km/h) cutter driven into the middle and crossed the right fence.
Kim Ha-seong came out in the fourth at-bat in the top of the 8th inning. He had a tenacious fight with Kevin Jinkel that went all the way to the ninth pitch. He hit a low-incoming 86.5 mph (about 139 km/h) slider, but it headed forward for third baseman Kennedy and backed off on a third baseman grounder. San Diego did not score a single point until the ninth inning and lost to Arizona 0-3.
The previous day (12th), Kim Ha-seong recorded 2 hits in 5 at-bats, recording a 16-game hitting streak. In 2010, with the Cincinnati Reds, Shin-soo Choo (SSG Landers) tied for the record for the most consecutive hits in a Korean major league. However, he was silent in the game that day and was unable to rise to the top spot alone. His on-base streak also ended at 19 games.
San Diego starter Hill made his second appearance after the trade transfer, but became the losing pitcher in two consecutive games with 3 runs (3 earned), 7 hits (1 home run), 1 walk and 4 strikeouts in 3⅓ innings. Arizona’s Galen broke the team’s 9-game losing streak by fighting hard with 4 hits, 1 walk and 8 strikeouts over 6 innings.
