‘Was King Ha-seong too excited?’ Double explosion against former KBO ace! But, alas,

‘King Ha-seong’ Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) pulled out a perfect double against Brooks Rayleigh (35, New York Mets), who played an ace in the KBO League in the past. But was it too much excitement? After looking at the opponent’s gap for a while, he sprinted to third base, but was unfortunately out and shed tears. Even in the close match situation, he seemed to exquisitely avoid the tag, but in the end, his body fell off the base and he was out. The San Diego bench also did not apply for a separate video review.

Ha-seong Kim started as the first batter and second baseman in the 2023 MLB home game against the New York Mets at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA on the 8th (Korean time), and played an active part with 1 hit, 1 run and 1 walk in 3 at-bats. . Ha-seong Kim’s batting average for the season rose slightly from 0.254 to 0.255. His OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) was 0.757.

Kim Ha-seong took the first plate as the lead batter at the end of the first inning, with the team trailing 0-1. The opposing pitcher was Justin Verlander, a living legend who won the 2019 American League Cy Young Award. This was the first time Ha-seong Kim, who entered the major leagues in 2021, faced Verlander. And as soon as he stepped into the plate, he started playing snowballs. Conversely, Verlander showed a lack of control. The first ball was shot 93.7 miles (about 150.8 km), but it was a low ball. The second pitch is a high ball. He also picked out the high ball on the third pitch. Then, the 4th ball fell outside the strike zone, resulting in a straight walk. All four balls thrown against Kim Ha-seong were four-seam fastballs.

With Kim Ha-seong on base, the opposing infield team had no choice but to become more nervous. In the end, Ha-seong Kim ran. Juan Soto and Fernando Tatis Jr. left the outfield side by side with a fly ball, and Manny Machado entered the plate. And Verlander’s first pitch that followed. Here, Kim Ha-seong perfectly saw the timing of the pitch and went in standing at second base. The opposing catcher, Francisco Alvarez, even gave up throwing to second base. The timing of the start was amazing to the point that Ha-seong Kim stopped the start before Verlander pitched.

It was Kim Ha-sung’s 16th stolen base this season. Kim Ha-seong, who already surpassed his big league career record of steals (12) last year, is expected to break not only 20 bases, but also Shin-soo Choo’s record for the most stolen bases in a single season by a Korean major leaguer (22 in Cleveland in 2010). In addition, he is looking at the 30-base pace. Was it shaken by Kim Ha-seong’s stolen base? Machado called Kim Ha-seong home with a timely double that cut cleanly through the middle left of the outfield. After Ha-seong Kim entered the dugout, he raised both hands and gave high fives to his teammates.

Kim Ha-seong scored in the bottom of the second inning with his team leading 3-1. He stood in the second at-bat with a chance to get first out and second base. San Diego fans gathered at the home stadium shouted ‘Ha Sung-Kim’ hotly. The opposing pitcher is still Verlander. This time, he completely changed his ball mix to focus on breaking balls. The first pitch was a 79.8 mile (128.4 km) curve, and it became a low ball. Verlander induced a miss by throwing an 87.9 mile (141.4 km) slider on the second pitch. Ha-seong Kim then hit the 78.8 mile (126.8 km) curve properly on the third pitch, but the strong hit hit the third baseman in front of him. According to Game Day, it flew low and fast with an exit velocity of 101.5 miles (163.3 km) and a launch angle of 8 degrees.

Kim Ha-seong entered the third plate at the bottom of the 4th inning with the team leading 3-2, with no runners out and 2 out. This time, Verlander threw a mix of fastballs and breaking balls. The first pitch was a strike in the middle of 94.8 miles (152.5 km). The low changeup on the second pitch was picked out well without batting. The third pitch was a four-seam fastball that went outward. On the fourth pitch, the 85.7 mile (137.9 km) slider was exquisitely placed in the low zone. And in the 5th pitch, he threw a high-speed slider (144 km) lower on the same course and froze Ha-seong Kim.
◆ ‘Good double against Rayleigh’ Kim Ha-sung’s bold run to third base, with confidence firmly attached, the result was unfortunately outAnd after Ha-sung Kim hit well, there was a scene where he was unfortunately out. In the bottom of the 7th inning, the two teams were tied 3-3. The Mets selected Brooks Reilly as their second pitcher메이저사이트. Until this game, it was Rayleigh who was recording an average ERA of 2.35 with 1 win and 1 loss in 37 games this season. As soon as Rayleigh got on the mound, he guided Trent Grisham into a ground ball to first base. The next hitter was Kim Ha-seong. It was Rayleigh who played for Lotte for five seasons from 2015 to 2019. Against Rayleigh, Ha-seong Kim recorded a career batting average of 0.286 (12 hits in 42 at-bats), 2 homers, 6 RBIs, 3 walks, 4 strikeouts, an on-base percentage of 0.412, and a slugging percentage of 0.500 in the KBO League against Rayleigh. not bad grades. On top of that, in the major leagues, he went 2 at-bats, 1 hit and 1 walk, which was fine.

Kim Ha-seong swung the bat without delay toward Rayleigh’s 90-mile (144.8 km) sinker. The ball quickly passed the side of the third baseman and rolled into the left outfield. Exit velocity was 103.4 mph (166.4 km). It became a double hit with ease. However, Ha-seong Kim shot second base, touched his helmet for a while, and boldly started charging toward third base. It seemed that he saw the Mets left fielder Pam take a break and handle the batted ball. Seeing Kim Ha-seong run, Pam quickly spread the ball to third base. After all, he couldn’t be faster than the ball. Ha-seong Kim even tried to slide, but was tagged out. Still, looking at the slow screen, it seemed that he exquisitely avoided the glove at the moment of tagging, but in the end, his body fell off the base and was clearly out. Coincidentally, the follow-up Juan Soto hit a left-handed double, which was even more disappointing for San Diego. The scene where Xander Bogatz comforts Kim Ha-seong, who returned to the dugout, was captured. Rayleigh came down the mound after being hit by Soto. After that, Ha-seong Kim was replaced by Lougned Odor before the defense in the top of the 9th inning and finished his game that day.

Meanwhile, San Diego lost 5-7 after 10 overtime games. San Diego ended its three-game winning streak with a record of 41-47. The standings are 4th in the National League West Division. On the other hand, the Mets sprinted to a brisk six-game winning streak, recording 42 wins and 46 losses. The ranking is 4th in the National League East Division.

The Mets took advantage of Darvish’s shaking in the first inning to take a lead. However, in San Diego, Kim Ha-seong tied the score in the bottom of the first inning. When the follow-up Bogatz landed on third base, taking advantage of the opponent’s catch error, second base runner Machado overturned the game 2-1, home. Then, in the bottom of the second inning, Grisham hit a double at the right field with one out and second base, and ran away to 3-1. However, Darvish was shaken again. After two deaths in the top of the 3rd inning, he gave Lindor a left-handed solo gun. In the 5th inning, Vogelback was allowed a timely hit to tie the game with 2nd out and 3rd base. On this day, Darvish had 5 innings (58 strikes out of 100 pitches), 7 hits, 3 walks, 1 hit ball, 4 strikeouts and 3 runs, Verlander (54 strikes out of 98 pitches) was 6 innings, 5 hits, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts and 3 runs (2 earned) ) were marked respectively.

In the end, the game was decided in the 10th overtime game. Following leadoff hitter McNeil’s timely double in right field, second base runner McNeil scored on Alvarez’s infield hit. After two outs, Pam went on base with a ball that hit the body, and Lindor hit a timely hit with two RBIs and ran away to 7-3. In San Diego, Machado drew a two-run arch in the bottom of the 10th inning, but that was it. For the Mets that day, Alvarez had 4 hits and Lindor had 3 hits, respectively.
