His batting average in the exhibition game went from 2.69 to 2.41 (7 hits in 29 at-bats). Ha-seong Kim made his first at-bat as the lead batter in the top of the 3rd inning when he was facing 0-0.
He retired with a fly ball to second baseman, and in the top of the fourth inning when his team was leading 3-2, he came back to the plate with a run on first base and sent the ball to the outfield, but it ended up being a fly ball to left fielder.
Even in the top of the seventh inning he came out as the leadoff batter, but he hit a grounder to third base. After the inning, he was replaced by Luis Aviles Jr. in the process of changing air and defense, and finished the game first. San Diego beat Seattle 4-2.
