Motor, who had a batting average of 0.176 this season (13 hits in 74 at-bats) and 2 RBIs. Each game and each at-bat was really precious, but luck didn’t follow at the beginning of the game.
Motor hit a foul home run against starting pitcher Hill in his first at-bat, causing the stadium to riot. Afterwards, he hit a powerful straight hit, but was blocked by shortstop Bo Gatz’s fantastic diving catch and had to return to the dugout.
After that, the motor retreated with a bum hit and recorded no hits in 3 at-bats.
◆Two at-bats are enough for a multi-hit, Kim Ha-seong showing off his presence with 3G consecutive hits Ha-seong Kim, who
was recording hits in 2 consecutive games, showed off his presence by playing an active role from the beginning of the game.

In the top of the 5th inning, he stepped up as the lead batter and retired with a fly ball to left field. In the fourth at-bat, in the top of the 7th inning, 1st out and 2nd base, he turned to a third baseman ground ball against relief pitcher John King.
◆Age difference of 22 years… 21-year-old rookie Walker and 43-year-old oldest hill gave a shot.
San Diego took the lead with Kim Ha-seong at the beginning of the game. At the beginning of the first inning, Kim Ha-seong opened the fire with a heavy hit, then stepped on home to Machado’s 1 RBI and timely hit to score the first run with a score of 1-0. In the beginning of the second inning, Kim Ha-sung and Soto’s 1 RBI and timely hit made it 3-0.
San Diego led by 3 points. However, it was overtaken by a single swing. In the bottom of the 4th inning, Hill hit Walker with a 3-run home run from 1st and 3rd base, and the score was tied 3-3.
◆Ha-sung ran away in the middle of the game, but Hyeon-soo’s St. Louis was stronger.
In the middle of the game, in the top of the 7th inning, San Diego once again took the lead. Leading batter Campusano’s right-handed hit and Grisham’s sacrifice bunt made it one out and second base. Ha-seong Kim stepped back with a grounder from third baseman and the flow seemed to be cut off, but Soto hit a timely RBI and ran away to 4-3.
In the bottom of the 9th inning, San Diego put closer Josh Hader up and got 2 outs. But after that, the flow went strangely. After being hit with a double by Wynn, he allowed Edmon a walk-off home run that went over the right wall and fell to his knees at 4-5. In particular, following the last game (against St. Louis on the 30th), it was the second consecutive loss that was even more painful as the same player gave the end to the same player for two consecutive games.
