Ha-seong Kim (28) of the San Diego Padres led the team to a great victory with a long drive.

Kim Ha-seong started as a 6th hitter and 2nd baseman in an away game against the Atlanta Braves held at True East Park on the 10th (Korean time). They won 10-2. His season batting average rose to 0.281 (9 hits in 32 at-bats).

Ha-seong Kim worked hard from the first at-bat. In the top of the second inning, he faced Dylan Dodd, the Atlanta left-hander starter, with second baseman without a hit, and hit the first pitch slider (132km/h) that was focused in the middle and hit the middle wall directly with an RBI double, giving the team the lead. This score eventually became the final score. In the second at-bat in the top of the third inning, he got a walk and succeeded in getting on base. 스포츠토토

The home run came in the third at-bat in the top of the 5th inning. With a 6-0 lead, Atlanta changed pitchers at the plate with Kim Ha-seong on first base and third base. Ha-seong Kim scooped up a low sweeper (122km/h) on the 5th pitch of left-hander Lucas Ludge on the ball count 2B-2S and connected it with a 2-run home run that went slightly over the left fence. It is the second gun of the season, fired in five games after the Arizona Diamondbacks match on the 4th. A sweeper is a pitch similar to a slider, but in the major leagues, it is marked as a pitch different from a slider.

In the remaining two at-bats, he withdrew with a hit and a strikeout.

Kim Ha-seong, who hit two long hits on this day alone, marked a slugging rate of 0.594 this season. He has a faster pace than the previous two seasons with two homers and four doubles in nine games. Kim Ha-seong recorded a slugging percentage of 0.383 with 11 home runs, 3 triples, and 29 doubles last year, his second year in the major leagues. His slugging percentage in his debut season was 0.352. At the current pace, it is expected that he will be able to pull out more long hits than last year.
