The season batting average slightly increased from 0.214 to 0.216 (25 hits in 116 at-bats).

Kim Ha-seong, who had been suffering from a no-hitter for four consecutive games since the Philadelphia Phillies game held on the 27th of last month, started the game in the 8th batting order that day.

Kim Ha-seong, who batted first last year and was very active in the central batting order at the beginning of this season, was pushed to the bottom of the batting order due to a recent slump.

Ha-Seong Kim continued to perform poorly in the early part of the day. He struck out on a swing in his first at-bat in the bottom of the second inning.

Ha-seong Kim, who came to bat with 1 out, missed the bat on the 5th pitch high fastball against Cincinnati starter Nick Martinez with a ball count of 2 balls and 2 strikes.

In the bottom of the 4th inning with a 1-0 lead, he was out with a hit in his second at-bat.

With 2 outs, he touched Martinez’s low changeup and hit a fly ball in the second baseman’s infield.

The hit came in the bottom of the sixth inning with a 5-2 lead.

Kim Ha-seong, who appeared as the leadoff hitter, attacked Cincinnati’s second pitcher Buck Palmer’s first pitch sinking fastball in the middle and hit a hit to right.

Ha-seong Kim stepped on third base when the follow-up batter, Jurickson Profar, hit a double, then rushed home and scored when Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a ground ball to second base.

Cincinnati, who was playing forward defense, threw the ball home, but was unable to stop Kim Ha-seong, who started quickly.

The fourth at-bat in the bottom of the 7th inning was disappointing. Ha-seong Kim tolerated three balls from Emilio Pagan.

Pagan threw three cut fastballs in succession that hit the boundary line below the strike zone, and the referee ruled them all as balls.

The referee’s decision on the ball was somewhat ambiguous. The fourth fastball thrown deep into Kim Ha-seong’s body was ruled a strike.

According to data from Game Day,’s text broadcast service, the first three balls were all within the strike zone, and the fourth ball was far outside the strike zone.

It was a decision that could cause confusion for both batters and pitchers.

Ha-seong Kim played a full count game in a chaotic atmosphere and struck out a looking fastball in the middle of the 7th pitch.

Cincinnati coach David Bell protested harshly regarding the decision.

Coach Bell, who came to the ground during the offense and defense changeover, protested to the referee for a long time before being ordered to leave, and also kicked a water bottle as he entered the dugout.

San Diego won 6-4, breaking a five-game losing streak.

Japanese San Diego starting pitcher Yu Darubish, who returned from injury, became the winning pitcher after five innings, allowing three hits, no walks, three strikeouts, and no runs. 한국야동
