Kim Ha-seong (28), who plays for the San Diego Padres, continued his good mood with hits in three consecutive games.

Ha-seong Kim started as the fifth hitter and shortstop in the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) regular season visiting game against the Milwaukee Brewers held at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA on the 18th (Korean time) and hit 1 hit in 4 at-bats.

With this, he continued his streak of being on base for 7 consecutive games since the game against the Chicago Cubs on the 10th, along with hitting in the last 3 consecutive games.

Kim Ha-seong’s season batting average slightly increased from 0.225 to 0.227 (17 hits in 75 at-bats).

In Ha-seong Kim’s first at-bat after two outs in the second inning, he hit Milwaukee starter Bryce Wilson’s cutter near the body and was out with a fly ball.

In his second at-bat in the 4th inning with 2 outs and 1 base on base, he hit Wilson’s cutter without missing and got on base with a single to left.

It was a bullet-like ball with an exit speed of 102.5 miles per hour (about 165 km).

Kim Ha-seong’s hit put San Diego in scoring position, but the follow-up batter, Jackson Merrill, was out with an infield grounder and failed to score.

Kim Ha-seong, who took his third at-bat in the 7th inning with no outs and no outs in the game tied 0-0, was forced off with his second double play of the season.

Facing Milwaukee right-hand pitcher Elvis Peguero, Ha-seong Kim targeted a low slider on the second pitch, but the ball headed toward third baseman.

It was a double play that went from third baseman to second baseman to first baseman.

Kim Ha-seong, who took the last at-bat after two outs in the ninth inning when the game was tied 0-1, hit a well-hit ball toward center field, but it went straight toward center fielder Blake Perkins, becoming the last batter of the game.

San Diego lost 0-1 to Milwaukee.

San Diego starting pitcher Michael King continued his no-hit streak until the 7th inning with 2 outs, allowing 2 hits, 10 strikeouts, and 1 run in 7⅔ innings, but he did not receive support from the batting line and became the losing pitcher.

After two outs in the eighth inning, King left a runner on second base and handed the mound to Wandy Peralta.

However, Peralta allowed the final timely hit to Milwaukee’s ninth batter, Perkins.

San Diego, which ended its three-game winning streak, remained in second place in the National League West Division with 11 wins and 10 losses.

San Diego, who completed a six-game series during their visit, will rest for a day on the 19th and then play a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays at Petco Park, their home stadium, starting on the 20th. 고스톱
