Even the player who gave up the home run recognized Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres).
The San Diego local media outlet Union Tribune published an interview with Miami Marlins pitcher Ryan Weathers, 토토사이트 who gave up a grand slam to Kim on March 23 (KST).
Weathers was selected by San Diego with the seventh overall pick in the first round of the 2018 draft. He made his big league debut with San Diego in 2021.
He left San Diego earlier this month when he was traded to Miami.
On April 22, he made his first start against his hometown team. His former teammates were no match for him.
Weathers was pulled early after giving up five runs in 3 1/3 innings, and took the loss as the team fell to 2-6.
It was Kim who delivered the game-winning blow to Weathers, who was down 0-1 with three strikeouts in the second inning. Kim saw two strikes before taking a 96.6-mph (155.5-kilometer) fastball on the third pitch of the at-bat for a grand slam over the left-center field fence.

“I wish I could have been a little more aggressive,” he said of his pitching. If I hadn’t walked three batters, I would have gotten a solo shot instead of a walk-off home run,” he reflected.
Still, he gave a nod to Kim’s hitting ability.
“I threw it where I wanted to throw it,” Weathers said, adding, “He’s a good player. He’s got a good swing.”

In his third year in the big leagues, Kim has become an even more dominant presence with his bat.
“He walks, he hits, he steals bases,” said San Diego manager Bob Melvin. “He understands what’s expected of him in the leadoff spot. He plays defense as good as anybody. He’s become a great player.”
“The better he performs, 스포츠토토맨 the more he believes in himself in the major leagues,” he added.
