Even doing this is too much. Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) had to reduce his anger with three unfair ball judgments.
Ha-seong Kim started as a 7th hitter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League Baseball away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 15th (hereinafter Korean time), and was silent with no hits and 2 strikeouts in 3 at bats.
Kim Ha-seong, who showed the appearance of a Dodgers killer with a tied score, 2 RBIs, and a double in the 7th inning on the 13th and a solo home run in the pursuit in the 2nd inning on the 14th, but he withdrew this day with no hits. San Diego was also swept by the Dodgers, losing 0-4 amid silence on the batting line. The last 5 consecutive losses.
In the first at-bat in the second inning, a well-hit hit was caught with a straight hit to second base, and Ha-seong Kim swallowed regret. He persistently harassed Dodgers right-hander Tony Gonsolin with a full count match that went up to 11 pitches.
The ball count was 2-2 and was cut with 5 consecutive fouls. Kim Ha-seong, who hit the foul regardless of pitch type and course, picked out the 10th pitch curve and made a full count. Then, on the 11th pitch, a four-seam fastball came in low outside.
Thinking it was a walk with a ball out of the zone, Ha-seong Kim was about to go to first base when referee Bill Miller called for a strikeout. Ha-seong Kim, who turned around in surprise, put down his bat and jumped up and looked at the referee Miller. However, the ball decision could not be changed as long as the decision was made once it was the referee’s own domain. Kim Ha-seong had to go back to the dugout in anger.
The reason why Kim Ha-seong is angry is not because of this ball. Balls that were judged as strikes on the 2nd and 3rd pitches were all out of the zone according to the MLB.com Game Day graph. The 3rd pitch four-seam fastball slightly crossed the edge of the outer high zone, but the 2nd pitch slider was completely out of the outer low zone. 안전놀이터
The ball on the last 11th ball also went off the same course, but it was judged as a strike again. All three strikes were balls, so Ha-seong Kim was about to jump crazy.
Kim Ha-seong, who even lost a walk due to an unfair strikeout, was struck out by left-hander Victor Gonzalez in the last at-bat in the 7th inning. He got up to six pitches, but the bat went wrong on the outside high sinker. It was an uneventful day in many ways. /firstname.lastname@example.org
