Silence for Cy Young second-place ace… Ha-Seong Kim, humiliated by striking out 3 in a month → Batting average of .160 in September

Cy Young ace was silenced. He went hitless for two straight games and had three strikeouts for the first time in about a month. The disappointment of September continued.

Ha-seong Kim started as second baseman in the 2023 Major League game against the Philadelphia Phillies held at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA on the 7th (Korean time) and recorded no hits in 3 at-bats, 3 strikeouts, and 1 walk. 

Ha-seong Kim’s season batting average dropped to .271 and his OPS fell to .783. Due to the 3 strikeouts and silence on this day, Ha-seong Kim’s batting average in September also dropped to 1.66 (4 hits in 25 at-bats). September continues to be a difficult month.

Philadelphia’s starter was ace Jack Wheeler, who finished second in the 2021 National League Cy Young Award and is 10-6 with an ERA of 3.62 this year. 

Ha-seong Kim was helpless against Wheeler’s combination of fastball and curve in the first inning. With 2 balls and 2 strikes, he struck out on a 96.6 mph four-seamer on the 5th pitch. 

He appeared as the leadoff hitter in the 4th inning and continued the game tenaciously. It was an 8-ball game with 2 balls and 2 strikes. However, he struck out after swinging at a 94.9 mph sinker to the body. 

He got a walk in the bottom of the sixth inning and reached base. However, he could not advance further due to a missed follow-up hit. 

In the fourth at-bat in the bottom of the 8th inning, there was an opportunity to score. In the bottom of the 8th inning, leadoff hitter Gary Sanchez’s base hit and Trent Grisham’s walk gave Kim Ha-seong the opportunity to put runners on first and second base with one out. However, he faced Philadelphia’s third pitcher, Jeff Hoffman, for a full count, but struck out on a missed swing. He was dazzled by an 87.4 mph slider that came toward him on the 6th pitch, recording 3 strikeouts.

Kim Ha-seong’s 3 strikeouts in one game is the 7th time this season, and he has been silent for 3 strikeouts in about a month since the Seattle game on August 9th. 

On this day, the team suffered a complete loss of 1-5, remaining at 66 wins and 75 losses on the season. Starting pitcher Michael Waka collapsed with 7 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 6 strikeouts, and 3 runs in 4 innings. The entire batting lineup, including Ha-seong Kim, was helplessly silent with three hits. They only managed to score 1 run in the 9th inning.온라인카지노

He gave up the momentum by allowing a run from the first inning. He allowed a leadoff home run to leadoff hitter Kyle Schwarber in the first inning, and hit a two-run double from Bryce Harper in the fourth inning with two outs and first and second bases. And in the 5th inning, a solo shot by JT Realmuto and a timely hit by Jake Cave widened the gap to 0-5, and San Diego was unable to overcome it. 

Philadelphia Jack Wheeler earned his 11th win of the season with 6 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts, and no runs.
