Kim’s multi-hit game helps team win, OPS 1.115 in June

Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) helped his team win with a multi-hit game.

Starting in the eighth spot in the batting order against the Chicago Cubs at Petco Park on 6 June, Kim went 2-for-3 with a double, one walk, one RBI and one strikeout. He and No. 4 Manny Machado (4-for-4, three RBIs, three runs scored) were the only other San Diego batters with multiple hits on the day. San Diego won its 28th game of the season (32nd overall) with a 5-0 shutout.

The big hits came in the first inning. With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the first inning, Kim pulled a five-pitch sinker from Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks for a two-run double to left field (his 10th of the season). On a 3-ball-1 strike count, the ball was in the middle of the plate. Cubs third baseman Patrick Wisdom tried to make a dynamic catch, but it slipped through. His second at-bat in the fourth inning was a swinging strike.

In the bottom of the seventh, Kim reached first on an infield single in front of the pitcher. With the score 5-0 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Kim singled to put runners on second and third. However, he was unable to score as he was stranded on second base in both at-bats.먹튀검증

His monthly batting average in June is also well above his season average at 0.385 (13-for-5). His on-base percentage (0.500) and slugging percentage (0.615) combined for an OPS of 1.115.
