San Francisco Giants’ Jung-Hoo Lee (26) and San Diego Padres’ Ha-Sung Kim (29) successfully completed their opening four-game series.

Lee went 2-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts in the first game of the 2024 Major League Baseball season against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA, on Monday. He drew a walk for the first time in his major league career and had his first three-strikeout game.

Ha-Sung Kim started at shortstop in the No. 5 spot and went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs, two runs scored and one walk. He hit his first home run of the season and was solid defensively in San Diego’s 13-4 win.

The opening four-game series between San Francisco and San Diego was highlighted by Lee’s major league debut. During the opening series, Lee was reunited with his former teammate and best friend Kim Ha-seong, who he played with in the KBO’s Kiwoom Heroes. “I think it’s a little bit more meaningful psychologically than playing against a different team because I have (Kim) Ha-seong-hyung. I hope to have a good game with Ha Sung-hyung,” Lee said of meeting Kim in his debut.

Lee made his major league debut last month, going 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.

He became the 27th Korean major leaguer in history, the fifth Korean hitter to record a hit in his debut and the second Korean to record a RBI in his debut.

He had an even better showing in his second game on May 30th. Lee went 2-for-5 with two doubles and one RBI for his first career multi-hit game and became the first Korean hitter in history to record a hit in each of his first two games.

In the third game, Lee capped off the opening four-game series. With San Francisco leading 3-1 in the top of the eighth inning, Lee hit a three-pitch, 77.8-mph (125.2-kilometer) sweeper off left-handed reliever Tom Cosgrove for a solo home run over the right-field wall. It was the first home run of his major league career. The home run hit 104.4 mph (168.0 km/h) and traveled 406 feet (124 meters),카지노사이트 making it a home run in all 30 major league parks.

“I haven’t felt bad hitting lately,” Lee said. I’ve been hitting line drives. I knew that if the ball was up, I could hit a home run. But I wasn’t aiming for a home run. I don’t think I’ve shown anything yet. I think home runs come from trying to get on base. I need to work harder at my game,” he said of his debut home run.

Kim Ha-seong also praised Lee Jung-hoo’s home run.

“(Lee) Jung-hoo hit his first home run in the major leagues. I’m so happy for him and he’s off to a great start,” Kim said, adding, “He’s showing good form as I thought he would. It’s just the beginning of his major league career, so I’m sure he’ll do better once he gets used to the league a little bit more,” said Kim, who was confident of Lee’s success.

After celebrating Lee’s first home run of the season, Kim Hae-sung became the star of the game with his first home run of the season. In the second inning, with San Diego leading 5-0 and runners on first and third, Kim took Jeffress’ 87.5-mph changeup over the left-field fence for a three-run homer. The home run, which hit 98.8 mph (159.0 km/h) and traveled 357 feet (109 meters), went straight into the building in left field.

“I’m just glad the team won,” Kim said. I don’t think I had a bad at-bat, so it’s good. I tried to hit the first pitch aggressively, but the pitcher threw a bad pitch. With two outs and runners in scoring position, I wanted to get a hit, so it was nice to get a home run,” he said of his home run.

Kim, who went 0-for-4 in his last game, bounced back immediately with a big day.

“I think this is baseball,” said Kim, who added, “I’m trying not to get carried away because I have a lot of games.”

“I didn’t get a hit, but I’m glad Ha Sung-hyung hit a home run, and I hope he doesn’t get hurt and doesn’t get sick because it’s an important season for him again this year. I haven’t seen him for a while since we met in San Francisco. I hope we all do well until we meet again,” said Kim, congratulating Ha on his home run.
