Goes 5-for-5, raises season batting average to .266
Returns from injury but remains on the bench
Ha-Sung Kim (28, San Diego Padres)
didn’t have a hit, 섯다 but he did reach base once and stole his 36th base of the season.
Kim went 1-for-5 with a walk and a stolen base in the leadoff spot against the Oakland
Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, U.S., on Saturday (June 16).
With his second straight game without a hit, following his last at-bat against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 14, Kim’s season batting average dropped from .268 to .266 (132-for-496).
In his first at-bat in the top of the first inning, 온라인섯다 Kim hit a fastball up the middle from Oakland starter Sean Newcomb, but retired on a fly to center field.
In the top of the second, he struck out swinging with the bases loaded. On a 2-ball-2-strike count,
he swung at Newcomb’s seven-pitch fastball outside the zone.
Kim had another disappointing at-bat in the top of the fourth inning when he singled with nobody out.
Kim led off the sixth inning with a walk. With the bases loaded, he drew a straight-up walk against right-handed reliever Adrian Martinez.
After stealing first base, Kim stole second on the next pitch to Fernando Tatis Jr. His 36th stolen base of the season.
While sliding into second base, Kim twisted his left ankle and was in pain. Manager Bob Melvin and a trainer examined the ankle, but Kim continued to play.
With three more home runs, Kim will become the first Asian infielder to reach 20 home runs and 30
doubles. With four more steals, he would become the second Asian player, after Ichiro Suzuki, to
reach 40 steals in a season.
Kim was unable to capitalize as the next at-bat didn’t go his way.
Kim struck out swinging with the bases loaded in the top of the eighth inning, then hit a grounder to
shortstop in the top of the ninth.
What he lacked at the plate, 카지노사이트랭크 he more than made up for with his defense at the plate.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, he made a quick diving catch of Ryan Noda’s hard-hit line drive and threw to first base to end the game.
South Korean infielder Choi Ji-Man, 32, who plays for San Diego alongside Kim, returned to the big
league roster but did not get a chance to play.
Choi was diagnosed with a left rib sprain and was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) last month.
He recovered from the left rib injury and made a rehab start at Triple-A on June 6, but was hit by a
pitch to the instep and suffered a bruise.
After taking two days off and rehabbing at Triple-A from Sept. 9 to the day before, Choi returned to
the big leagues for the first time in about a month.
