Kim Ha-seong, no hits in 4 consecutive games… Tatis Jr. is silent before returning
San Diego Padres infielder Kim Ha-seong was silent for four consecutive games.
Kim Ha-seong played as second baseman in the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) visiting game played against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on the 21st (Korean time), and only had no hits in 4 at-bats.
On the 17th, Kim Ha-seong broke a no-hitter in three consecutive games and hit multiple hits (two or more hits in one game), but fell silent again for the fourth day.
Kim Ha-seong missed an opportunity to score an RBI by swinging three times at Nelson’s four-seam fastball from the starting lineup at the start of the second inning, with one company on first and second base, with the score 0-0.
Instead, follow-up hitter Trent Grisham took charge of the lead with a timely double in the middle right.
Ha-seong Kim tried to hit the first fastball even without a safe runner in the top of the 4th inning, leading 5-1, but withdrew due to a fly ball from center fielder.
In the 6th inning when the score was 5-5, 1 out 1 and 2 base, the second baseman had to turn around with a fly ball.
And at this time, the next batter, Grisham, hit a heavy double to widen the score to 7-5.
Ha-seong Kim played a full count game, hitting 6 fouls in the 8th inning with 2nd out and 3rd base, but was eventually caught with a strikeout. 스포츠토토

Meanwhile, Fernando Tatis Jr., San Diego’s next-generation leading hitter, made a comeback after 565 days.
Tatis Jr. injured his wrist in a motorcycle accident in March of last year and completely missed the first half, and in August of that year, he was suspended for 80 games after being found to be taking a banned substance.
On October 4, 2021, the last game against the San Francisco Giants, which was the final game of the regular season, was the last game.
Tatis Jr., who entered his first at-bat amid cheers and booing, struck out on a swing. On this day, he recorded a total of 5 at-bats without a hit, leaving homework to improve his sense of practice.
