Kim Ha-seong, today as well… 14-game multi-on-base streak, 12-game hitting streak
Standing tall at the top of hitting performance…
9th in batting average, 7th in on-base percentage
Should I aim for the Silver Slugger as well as the Gold Glove now?
Ha-seong Kim (27), the main infielder of the San Diego Padres,
is literally showing off his improved hitting. 카지노사이트
Kim Ha-seong started as the first batter and third baseman
in the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) Los Angeles Dodgers home game
held at Petco Park in San Diego, California,
on the 7th (Korean time) and played an active role with 1 hit and 1 walk in 3 at-bats.
He continued his multi-on-base record (two or more on-base in one game)
in 14 consecutive games starting against the Detroit Tigers on the 23rd of last month,
and hit in 12 consecutive games starting against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the 25th of last month.
Ha-seong Kim’s batting performance is already on the way to the top.
He posted a batting average of 0.287 for the season,
ranking ninth in the National League.
On-base percentage (0.384) is 8th, OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage 0.839)
is 14th, and stolen bases (24) are tied for 6th.
At this point, there are even jokes about whether he should challenge the Silver Slugger (selected only based on batting performance).
Ha-seong Kim was evaluated as a ‘professional defender’ until last season.
He was recognized as a good defender enough to be nominated for the Gold Glove Award last year
in the National League short stop category (selected only for defensive skills),
but evaluations continued that he had limitations in hitting.
However, Kim Ha-seong grew through batting intensive training last winter
and is emerging as a top-class hitter in the league.
Ha-seong Kim showed a dazzling sense of hitting on this day as well.
In the bottom of the first inning, he hit a ground ball to third base against Dodgers starter Lin Shi-Lin,
but at the end of the third inning, which was behind 1-6,
with two outs on first base, he walked on base after a full count.
The hit came during an attack in the bottom of the 5th inning.
Kim Ha-seong lightly scooped up Lynn’s 3rd low curve on 2 out 2 strikes
produced a left-handed hit rolling forward to the left fielder.
Ha-seong Kim has often been seen connecting low-falling In-gu Yoo with hits this season.
On this day, too, he completed multiple hits with his unique hitting technique.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, which he pursued 2-6,
he bowed his head with a strikeout knockout.
Meanwhile, Choi Ji-man, who recently moved to San Diego,
started as the 7th hitter and first baseman and played with Kim Ha-seong.
Choi Ji-man was silent with no hits in 4 at-bats,
and his batting average for the season fell to 0.192.
San Diego lost 2-8 as veteran starting pitcher Rich Hill,
who recently transferred, shook with 4 hits and 6 runs in 3 innings.
