카지노사이트For the third consecutive day, Korean major leaguer Kim Ha-seong (29-San Diego Padres) won the battle between Korean and Japanese big leaguers against Shohei Ohtani (29-LA Angels).

Kim Ha-seong started at first base and fulfilled his leadoff role by going 2-for-3 with two walks, two runs scored and one stolen base in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Los Angeles Angels at Petco Park in San Diego, California, U.S., on June 6. His batting average dropped from .257 to .254, but both of his runs scored to help the team to a 5-3 victory. Meanwhile, batting third for the Angels, Ohtani was silent in his four at-bats.

After reaching base on a grounder to shortstop in his first at-bat, Kim led off the bottom of the third inning with a 1-2 count and drew a full-count walk. He then stole second base, his 15th stolen base of the season, advanced to third on Juan Soto’s grounder and came home on Manny Machado’s single. The run tied the game at 2-2.

After being retired on a grounder to third in his third at-bat of the fifth inning, Kim struck out in his fourth at-bat of the seventh inning, leaving him without a hit. But in his fifth at-bat with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, he overcame an 0-2 count and drew four straight pitches to reach base. After advancing to second on a Fernando Tatis Jr. single, Kim scored on back-to-back walks by Soto and Machado. Closer Josh Hader pitched a scoreless ninth inning to give San Diego a three-game sweep of the Angels.

The three-game series was highlighted by the Korean-Japanese major league matchup between Kim Ha-seong and Ohtani, who won all three games. He went 1-for-5 in Game 4, the first game of the three-game series, and even had a hit against Ohtani in Game 5 (1-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI, 1 stolen base). Ohtani, on the other hand, went silent in the three games, totaling 10 at-bats without a hit, and his triple-digit batting average collapsed (.296). In his start, he gave up five runs on seven hits and two home runs in five innings, his worst outing of the season, and a blister on his right middle finger prevented him from pitching in the All-Star Game.
