Kim Ha-seong (27, San Diego Padres) opened the door to the chase with a decisive hit in the ninth, but there was no follow-up hit.
Kim Ha-seong played the ninth batter shortstop in the 2022 MLB visit against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA on the 19th (Korean time) and hit 1 in 4 at-bat.
His batting average for the season was 0.222.
San Diego lost 4-5 to the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the National League West and moved down to second place.
Kim Ha-seong, who struck out in the 2nd inning, hit second base in the 4th, and hit shortstop in the 6th inning, came out as the lead batter in the 9th, which was led 4-5.
Kim Ha-seong pulled a high-mounted slider in the middle of Colorado closing pitcher Daniel Bard and went on base with a double that cut through the left center.
It was Kim Ha-seong’s 11th double of the season, which broke in four days.
It was a tie for one hit, but there was no just-time hit.
Ha-seong Kim was unable to advance and was tied to second base because the batted ball of Yurixson Propar was deflected by the pitcher and went straight to second base.
San Diego continued their one-on-one and second-base chances with Jake Cronenworth’s walk, but Manny Machado struck out and Luke Voight turned to a second-base ground ball and knelt by one point.
