‘How to hit this?’ Ha-seong Kim cried at an incomprehensible strikeout… 5 consecutive losses in San Diego

Two balls that completely escaped to the outside were judged as strikes. Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego), who played 11 pitches, eventually bowed his head.

Kim Ha-seong started as second baseman in the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) visiting game against the LA Dodgers held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 15th (Korean time) and recorded no hits and two strikeouts in three at-bats. .

The team lost 0-4. San Diego’s losing streak extended to 5 games, with a record of 19-22, and the gap with the Dodgers, the leader in the National League (NL) West, widened to 7 games.

It is regrettable that the team lost, but it became a victim of an inconclusive decision. It was a more regrettable scene because he was making hits and RBIs two days in a row, including a home run the day before. His season batting average dropped from 0.227 to 0.221.

In the top of the second inning, the well-hit ball was sucked into the second baseman’s glove. In the fifth inning, he stood at bat once again. Kim Ha-seong, who appeared as the lead batter, harassed Dodgers starting pitcher Tony Gonslin. He singled out the first pitch, but the second pitch was ruled a strike. It was a ball that escaped outside Kim Ha-sung’s body for a long time. Looking at the pitching record on the MLB official website, the second ball is formed outside the zone.

The high 3 pitch also became a strike. Kim Ha-seong had a puzzled expression on his face, but it came out as slightly over his face. Since then, Kim Ha-seong has shown amazing concentration. He fouled off five more balls.

In the full count, the 11th pitch went to the bottom outside, and Kim Ha-seong moved to first base as if he intuitively sensed a walk. Then the referee’s strikeout call was heard. Kim Ha-seong jumped up and couldn’t hide his regret. He couldn’t protest directly, but he stood for a while with his hands on his hips.

Even in the top of the 7th inning, he struck out again against Victor Gonzalez, the third pitcher of the Dodgers, and ended the game without a hit on the day.

San Diego was crushed by the Dodgers’ long drive. In the bottom of the third, San Diego starter Ryan Weathers gave up two runs to Mookie Betts after being hit by a double by Miguel Rojas. In the bottom of the 6th inning, 2nd pitcher Brent Honeywell hit a 2 RBI double from Miguel Vargas with 2 out on 1st and 2nd base, and eventually lost 0-4.토스카지노

The slump is getting longer. In particular, after capturing the first game against the local rival Dodgers, they have lost five games in a row. Even if you expand the range to the last 10 games, it is a clear decline with 3 wins and 7 losses. The main reason is the serious slump in the batting line, with only Juan Soto (0.886) having an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) exceeding 0.8 among key hitters. On this day, he also recorded 6 left bases.
