Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) added only 1 RBI and no hits in the final game of the major league season. Choi Ji-man (32), who came on as a substitute, walked one.
Ha-seong Kim started as the second hitter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Chicago White Sox held at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois, USA on the 2nd (Korean time), going 4-for-5, no hits, and one RBI.
With this, Ha-seong Kim finished this season, his third year in the major league, with a batting average of 0.260, 17 home runs, 60 RBIs, 38 stolen bases, and 84 runs scored in 152 appearances. His on-base percentage was 0.351 and his slugging percentage was 0.398, his best personal season in most metrics. However, he was unable to become the first Asian infielder to join the 20 (home run) and 20 (steal base) club, which seemed possible.
Ha-seong Kim was retired by a fly ball to center field in his first at-bat in the first inning. He was then out with a ground ball to shortstop in the top of the 4th inning, a fly ball to left field in the top of the 6th, and a fly ball to first base in the top of the 8th.
Ha-seong Kim entered the fifth at-bat in the top of the 10th inning with one out and 1st and 3rd bases, with the score tied 0-0. He hit a sacrifice fly with a fly ball to right field, and the runner on third base came home, resulting in an RBI.
However, Ha-seong Kim’s RBI did not become the winning hit as San Diego allowed one run in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Ji-Man Choi appeared as a pinch hitter in Juan Soto’s at-bat on this day, recording no hits and one walk in 3 at-bats in 4 at-bats.
Choi Ji-man hit a ground ball to first base in his first at-bat in the top of the 4th inning, a fly ball to left field in his second at-bat in the top of the 6th, struck out in his third at-bat in the top of the 8th, and walked in his last at-bat in the top of the 10th.토토사이트
As a result, Choi Ji-man finished the season with a batting average of 0.163, 6 home runs, and 13 RBIs in 39 games this season. He started the season with the Pittsburgh Pirates and attempted to rebound by being traded to San Diego before the trade deadline, but had the worst season since his debut due to injuries.
Meanwhile, San Diego won 2-1 thanks to Jurickson Profar’s winning hit in the top of the 11th overtime.
San Diego, which was thwarted from advancing to the postseason, finished the season in 3rd place in the National League West Division with a season record of 82 wins and 80 losses, exceeding the .500 winning percentage. Before this season, they invested a lot of money and aimed to win, but were disappointed as they did not achieve the results they invested.
The White Sox ended the season with 61 wins, 101 losses, and 4th place in the American League Central Division.
