After a 15-game hiatus, Kim hits his 14th double of the season against DET

San Diego Padres infielder Ha-seong Kim resumed his hitting streak, which was interrupted the day before.

Kim went 1-for-5 at the plate in the leadoff spot against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., on 22 June. The team won the game 5-4.

The previous day (21st), Kim was dropped from the starting lineup as the team went with a left-handed batting lineup, and came in to pinch-hit in the seventh inning, only to have his streak of 15 consecutive games with a hit snapped when he grounded out to first base. Kim was undeterred and got another hit on the day. His season batting average dropped slightly from 0.263 to 0.262.

San Diego’s starting lineup on the 22nd was Ha-Sung Kim (second base), Fernando Tatis Jr. (right field), Juan Soto (left field), Manny Machado (third base), Zander Bogaerts (shortstop), Jake Cronenweth (first base), Luis Camposano (catcher), Taylor Callaway (designated hitter), and Trent Grisham (centre field).

Detroit started Zach McKinstry (third base)-Riley Greene (designated hitter)-Spencer Thorkelson (first base)-Kerry Carpenter (right field)-Javier Baez (shortstop)-Nick Meyton (second base)-Akil Badu (left field)-Jake Rogers (catcher).

Kim Ha-Sung led off the first inning with a single and was retired on a fielder’s choice off Detroit starter Reece Olson. Two innings later, Juan Soto led off the inning with a single up the middle. With runners on first and second, Cronenweth hit a two-run triple to centre field to make it 3-0.카지노

Kim Ha-seong was out on a fly ball to left field two batters later. Soto’s two-run homer with one out in the top of the third made it 5-0. Two batters later in the fourth inning, Kim was caught stealing second.

With two outs in the top of the sixth to make it 5-1, Kim hit a lucky double off the left fielder’s glove for his first hit of the day and 14th double of the season. San Diego had runners on second and third with one out, but failed to score on Tatis Jr.’s fly ball to right field.

Detroit cut the deficit to one run in the bottom of the sixth on Meyton’s RBI single with runners on first and third and then in the top of the seventh on Green’s two-run double to right-centre field. Kim was retired on a grounder to shortstop with two outs in the top of the ninth with the score 5-4. San Diego closed out the game in the bottom of the ninth, with Josh Hader pitching a scoreless inning to preserve the win.
