San Diego Padres outfielder Ha-Sung Kim (27) reached base in 14 consecutive games. However, his streak of consecutive multi-hit games was snapped and he failed to surpass Ichiro Suzuki (Japan) to become the most prolific Asian-born major leaguer.
Kim went 1-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts in the leadoff spot in the lineup against the Seattle Mariners in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) game at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, USA, on Sept. 9. Kim maintained his season batting average at .288.
With the hit, Kim extended his hitting streak to 14 games, 토토 dating back to last month’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
However, it was a disappointing end to his multi-hit streak. The day before, Kim had tied Ichiro for the most consecutive multi-hit games by an Asian major leaguer with 15, but he was unable to make history with just one hit.
There were also some unfair calls. After striking out in the first and third innings, Kim struck out in his third at-bat of the sixth inning on a splitter that dug into his body after a seven-pitch at-bat.
Believing that the ball was outside the strike zone because it stuck to his body, Kim appealed the umpire’s call, gesturing that he was unhappy with the call. However, 안전놀이터 the call was not overturned, and Kim returned to the dugout with a disappointed look on his face.
Still, Kim managed to get a hit in his final at-bat in the ninth inning. Facing Seattle closer Andres Muñoz, Kim took a three-pitch slider and lined it up the middle.
San Diego, meanwhile, was held in check by seven scoreless innings from opposing starter Logan Gilbert, who fell to 0-2. The Padres, who have lost three straight, remain in fourth place in the National League West with a 55-59 record.
Choi Man-ji, the other Korean big leaguer who recently moved to San Diego, 스포츠토토 came in as a pinch-hitter in the top of the eighth and drew a walk.
