San Diego Padres outfielder Ha-seong Kim has been silent for three consecutive games.
Kim went 0-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout while batting eighth and playing second base in the Padres’ home game against the Cleveland Indians at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on Thursday (June 14).
It didn’t start out well. He led off the second inning with a single, but was stranded by Cleveland starter Tanner Vivier.
His second at-bat in the fourth inning, third in the sixth inning, and final at-bat in the eighth inning ended with a grounder to shortstop.토토사이트
Kim went hitless in his third straight game, dropping his season average to .236. He is batting .212 for the month of June, seemingly slowing down after a strong May.
Meanwhile, San Diego defeated Cleveland 6-3 behind home run explosions from Gary Sanchez and Fernando Tatis Jr. The Padres improved to 32-34 on the season and took a step closer to getting back to .500.
