San Diego Padres outfielder Ha-Sung Kim (28), who has been struggling at the plate this month, had his first multi-hit game in five games and his first multi-RBI game in 13 games.
San Diego hosted the Philadelphia Phillies at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on April 5 (ET).
Kim, who started at first and third base for the Padres, went 2-for-6 with a double and three RBIs for a multi-hit game. However, San Diego lost the game 7-9.
Kim had an infield fly in the first inning and a grounder to shortstop in the third inning, but he hit an RBI double off Taijuan Walker in the fourth inning when the Padres were down 2-8.
Then, with runners on first and third in the sixth inning, down 4-9, Kim hit an RBI single to center field off Andrew Bellatti. A multi-hit, three-RBI game.
He then flied out to right field in the eighth inning, trailing 7-9, and struck out in his final at-bat in the ninth. He would be the final San Diego batter of the night.
With the win, Kim is now batting .275 with 17 home runs, 55 RBIs, 77 runs scored, 128 hits, a .365 OPS and a .793 slugging percentage in 134 games this season. 온라인카지노
San Diego rallied after the midway point of the game, led by Kim’s RBI triple, but couldn’t overcome an eight-run third inning.
Philadelphia starter Walker earned the win with five innings of four-run ball, while Rich Hill took the loss after allowing six runs in 1 1/3 innings.
