The game started about two and a half hours later than scheduled due to rain. Kim Ha-sung, who appeared at-bat after a long wait, started his first at-bat with a ground ball to shortstop in the first inning. He was pushed to an unfavorable count of 1B-2S against Colorado starter Austin Gomber and hit a slider that was driven to the center for the fourth pitch, but headed straight to shortstop.
The second at-bat was different. In the third inning when it was 0-0, he succeeded in getting on base for 10 consecutive games by picking up a walk with two outs and a runner on second base. Later, Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a hit to the center warning track, but was blocked by center fielder Brenton Doyle’s good defense.
With a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning with one out and a runner on first base, he only flew to the right field. In the 1B-1S, he hit the third slider that was driven to Gomber’s center, but the ball missed.
The next at-bat was also a hit. He hit a grounder to shortstop in the seventh inning with two outs and a runner on first base, trailing 2-3. With his appearance, he hit Jake Bird’s first pitch cutter and hit an infield ground ball and sprinted to make his helmet come off, but shortstop Ezekiel Toba’s throw was faster.
The hit came in the final at-bat. After two outs in the ninth inning, trailing 2-3, Trent Grisham’s dramatic solo home run tied the score 3-3. After watching Justin Lawrence’s two shaky balls, Kim Ha-sung pulled a 94.2 mile (151km) sinker into the third pitch and connected it with a double heading deep to the left. It was the seventh consecutive hit. However, Tatis Jr. struck out and failed to score.
Kim Ha-sung’s season batting average, which added one hit, remained the same at .279. San Diego, ranked fourth in the National League West, suffered a 3-4 walk-off defeat to Colorado, the lowest in the 10th inning of extra time, failing to win four consecutive games. 52 wins and 55 losses in the season. After missing a chance to full base with no outs in the top of the 10th inning of extra time, he dedicated a walk-off sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th inning with one out and full base.
Starter Seth Lugo failed to win due to a lack of support for the lineup despite five hits one home run, three walks, nine strikeouts, and three runs (two earned runs) in seven innings. The losing pitcher is Nick Martinez. Juan Soto and Matthew Batten’s three hits also faded from defeat.
On the other hand, Colorado won two consecutive games with three consecutive wins, recording 42 wins and 64 losses. Starter Gomber consoled the team’s victory despite six hits, two walks, five strikeouts and two runs in six innings. In the batting line, Ryan McMahon and Elefuryth Montero led the victory with multi-hit.
