‘Tie score + 3 points in the final’… ‘Awesome’ Ha-seong Kim breaks through 100 RBIs in his MLB career
Ha-seong Kim (San Diego Padres) hit his third home run of the season in 19 games.
Ha-seong Kim hit a 3-run home run at the end of the 5th inning when the score was tight 3-3 in the 2023 MLB home game against the Cincinnati Reds held at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA on the 2nd (Korean time).
Kim Ha-seong, who was in his third at-bat with two outs on first and second base, caught Cincinnati left-handed pitcher Alex Young’s changeup on 2 strikes and 2 balls, and pulled it over the left wall without hesitation. The batting speed was measured at 101.2 miles per hour (about 163 km) and the flight distance was 108 m.
Ha-seong Kim hit his third home run of the season on the 22nd, 19 games after the home run against the Atlanta Braves on the 10th of last month. Kim Ha-seong, who recorded 99 RBIs in his career until the previous day after three years in the big leagues, increased his RBIs to 102 with a home run that day.
Kim Ha-seong, who was silent in two MLB World Tour matches against the San Francisco Giants in Mexico City, played as the 7th hitter and 2nd baseman earlier that day. He broke the silence of the bat by hitting the top double, and stepped on home on Trent Grisham’s double that followed to tie the game.
Kim Ha-seong, who finished the game with 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 3 RBIs and 2 runs, including a multi-hit record in 4 games since the match against the Chicago Cubs on the 27th of last month, raised his batting average from .209 to .222 (20 hits in 90 at-bats). By adding two extra hits in one game, the OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) rose vertically from 0.625 to 0.685.
