Thank you, Flexen.’

Ha-seong Kim of the San Diego Padres in the American Major League added a hit with difficulty. He met a pitcher with whom he had formed a ‘nemesis’ relationship since his days in Korea and hit a hit in the United States as well.메이저놀이터

On the 8th (Korean time), Ha-seong Kim started as shortstop at number 7 in the home game against the Seattle Mariners held at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA.

On this day, the San Diego team played well, but Kim Ha-seong was the opposite. San Diego scored 4 consecutive innings from the 2nd to the 5th, leading 8-0 until the 5th.

However, Ha-seong Kim did not contribute to the team’s score at all. This is because he only struck out three by the fifth inning.

Kim Ha-seong struck out on a swing in the bottom of the second inning when the team was leading 1-0, meeting opponent starter Kirby with one out and one on first base. In the bottom of the 3rd inning, when the score widened to 4-0, and the 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base chance, he once again dedicated a strikeout on a swing to Kirby.

The 5th chance was better. It was a 5-0 lead, and after Cronenworth’s hit and Carpenter’s walk, Kim Ha-seong stepped into the plate. Even pitcher Bresh’s wild pitch came out. 2nd and 3rd bases unscathed, a thousand gold RBI chances. However, Kim Ha-seong struck out again on a swing in the 2B2S situation and blew his own chance.

Still, he was able to laugh once in a while. Kim Ha-seong appeared in the 4th at-bat at the end of the 7th inning when the team was leading 8-0. Coincidentally, Chris Flexen was standing on the mound in Seattle. Flexen played an active role in the 2020 season Doosan Bears uniform, transferred to Seattle and wrote a ‘KBO reverse export myth’. Recently, he has been throwing from the bullpen after being pushed out of the competition, and he met Kim Ha-seong, whom he played against in Korea.

During the 2020 season, Kim Ha-seong showed a strong side with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 home run and 2 RBIs against Flexen as a member of Kiwoom Heroes. And on this day, he hit Flexen’s first pitch and connected it with a hit that relieved the sadness of three consecutive strikeouts.

Kim Ha-seong advanced to third base when a follow-up hitter hit and Flexen’s wild throw, and came home when Fernando Tatis Jr. grounded and scored with difficulty.

Meanwhile, Kim Ha-seong, who withdrew from the infield grounder in the last at-bat in the 8th inning, finished the game with 1 hit in 5 at-bats. His season batting average fell from 24/7 to 2/46. San Diego kept the wide open score from the beginning and won 10-3.
