For the second straight day, Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball (MLB), echoed with cheers for two Korean big league hitters.

Kim Ha-seong and Choi Ji-man started the game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on June 6, batting second and seventh, respectively. It was Choi’s second start with the Dodgers since being traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates to San Diego.

Kim went 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored, extending his hitting streak to 11 games and his multi-hit streak to 13 games (one game with two or more hits).

After striking out on a wild pitch in the first inning, Kim lined a clean single up the middle with the bases loaded in the third. It was his 11th consecutive game with a hit since May 25 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Kim led off the sixth inning with a single and although he was removed on a fly ball to center field, he continued to show his true colors, ranking third in the majors in pitches per at-bat (4.37). He was relentless in his pursuit of every pitch in the strike zone, forcing opposing lefty Ryan Yarbrough to throw 10 pitches. With his pitch count approaching 60, Yarbrough was eventually pulled after facing just two more batters.

Kim set the stage for his big inning (four or more runs in one inning) when he singled off Dodgers’ fourth pitcher Yoenis Almonte with one out in the eighth inning with San Diego trailing 1-3. It was his 13-game multi-hit streak dating back to May 23 against the Detroit Tigers.

San Diego tied the game at 3-3 on a Fernando Tatis Jr. walk, an infield single by Juan Soto and a throwing error by the opposition. Manny Machado’s RBI double made it 5-3, but the Padres scored seven runs in the eighth inning on Jake Cronenweth’s RBI single and Trent Grisham’s RBI double to pull away for an 8-3 victory.카지노사이트

Kim is batting .286 (101-for-353) on the season, tied for eighth in the National League in hits, tied for fifth with 24 stolen bases and tied for eighth with a .383 on-base percentage, and is in the top 10 in three offensive categories.

Choi, who went 1-for-2 with a walk and two RBIs in his first appearance since being acquired from San Diego the day before, struck out in his first at-bat of the day and was replaced by right-handed-hitting Garrett Cooper. His season batting average dropped slightly from .203 to .200.

San Diego avenged a loss the day before and cut its lead over the third-place Cincinnati Reds for the National League wild card to three games at 55-56, the final postseason berth. The Dodgers had their four-game winning streak ended, but remained in first place in the National League West at 63-46, three games behind the San Francisco Giants.
