Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) solved it alone. Bob Melvin (62), despite the bitter criticism of the San Diego Padres manager, the batting line for the sweet potato did not change.
San Diego lost 2-4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 13th (Korean time).
After losing the last game (against the Minnesota Twins on the 12th) San Diego 3-5, a meeting was called by the manager. At this meeting, coach Melvin threw an unusually strong message to the squad.
In an interview with local media after the match, coach Melvin said, “We have to do better. It’s what we have to do. There are players on the team who can do better, and we will do that.” had another disappointing performance. Performance was also poor,” he demanded a rebound.
Fernando Tatis Jr. (24) said, “Today (12th) I agree with the coach’s words 100%,” and Zander Bogatz (31) also said, “We have to play better,” and promised to do well.
Resolutely determined, the day after (13th), San Diego played the first game of a three-game road trip against rivals in the National League West, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In the bottom of the third inning, San Diego gave up the first run. In the 1st and 2nd bases, Freddy Freeman hit a 2-RBI double, leading to 0-2.
San Diego tied the game in the top of the seventh. In the 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases, Kim Ha-seong hit a double with 2 RBIs to balance the 2-2 game. The joy was short-lived, but in the bottom of the 7th, relief pitcher Tim Hill hit two consecutive home runs from Mookie Betts and Freeman, widening the score to 2-4.
Since then, San Diego failed to score by missing the chance to safely run first and second bases in the top of the 8th inning, and eventually knelt down without narrowing the gap.
This season, San Diego has been struggling with scoring emptiness. Prior to this day, the team’s scoring position batting average was 0.203 (64 hits in 315 at-bats), 9 homers, 102 RBIs, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.648, which was the lowest in the league in major offensive indicators.
And in this match, that weakness was highlighted. San Diego did not score until Kim Ha-seong made two RBI doubles in the top of the 7th inning, and gave the Dodgers the atmosphere by not being able to take advantage of the chance to get 2nd base without a run in the 5th inning and 1st and 2nd base without a run in the top of the 8th inning. 카지노사이트
Major league hitters such as Manny Machado (31) and Bogarts are on the San Diego lineup. However, all of them failed to take advantage of the scoring opportunity, and only Kim Ha-seong produced the desired result of coach Melvin.
After the game, MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League, praised Ha-sung Kim for the tie-breaking double, which was the swing that San Diego expected.
