Kim Ha-seong (27, San Diego) scored three hits and three RBIs, leading the team’s three-game winning streak.
Kim Ha-seong started as the ninth third baseman in the away game against Cincinnati held at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio on the 29th (Korea time), and made an outstanding performance with 3 hits and 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats. He climbed to a .250 batting average for the season (10 hits in 40). His RBI is eight. San Diego went on to win 3 in a row with a 7-5 win.
This is the first time Kim Ha-sung hit three hits in one game since entering the big leagues last year. It is the second RBI game since last year’s game against Colorado. Kim Ha-seong, who went on a right-handed hit in the first at bat in the 2nd inning, backed out with a strikeout in the 5th, and hit a sweeping double in the 3rd at-bat in the 6th, which was 2-2. Kim Ha-seong pulled a 152 km/h fast ball from Cincinnati right-handed pitcher Tony Santyan and sent a batted ball forward to left fielder. Cincinnati left fielder Tommy Pam attempted a dive catch to get a straight hit, but misplaced the fall and the ball bounced and rolled to the fence. Meanwhile, all three runners hit the home, breaking the balance 5-2. Kim Ha-seong hit a double in the left in the 8th inning, leading 6-4, and then stepped into the home when Manny Machado’s right-handed hit was just right.
