HOU’s first-ever ‘hansamdu’ + super catch… Former KIA foreigner brother’s crazy performance buries Kim Ha-seong’s hit record

Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker hit a pair of three-run homers and made a super catch to erase Ha-Sung Kim’s hit in the first inning to lead the Astros to a 12-2 victory. Ha-Sung Kim (San Diego Padres) added a single to set a new big league single-season record for hits, but he never saw the light of day.

Tucker started in right field and went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBIs, one walk, two runs scored and two stolen bases in a 12-2 victory over San Diego at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, on Monday (Nov. 11).

After warming up with an infield single in the second inning, Tucker led off the fourth with a walk and quickly moved to third on back-to-back stolen bases to make it 3-0. His 27th and 28th stolen bases of the season. He then scored on a throwing error by third baseman Egui Rosario that allowed Jose Abreu to score.

The icing on the cake came in the sixth inning with a 4-1 lead. With the bases loaded and two outs, Tucker hit a run-scoring triple off left-hander Tim Hill. On a 1B-1S count, he took Hill’s three-pitch slider and sent it into the right-center field warning track for his first triple of the season.카지노

Tucker came to the plate again in the bottom of the sixth inning with the bases loaded and the score 11-1, this time off Rich Hill, who smashed an RBI triple to the wall in right-center field. Spurred on by Tucker’s two triples in the inning, Houston exploded for eight runs in the sixth inning alone.

Tucker also made his presence felt defensively. In the top of the fifth inning, he made a diving catch of Kim Ha-Sung’s hard-hit line drive to right field, drawing an ovation from the home fans.

Tucker, who is also the younger brother of Preston Tucker, who played for the KIA Tigers in the KBO from 2019 to 2021, became the first player in Houston franchise history to hit two triples in an inning, according to MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball.

Tucker said, “It’s cool. I was able to get two hits in one inning because my teammates did a great job. I was just trying to hit the ball into the ground. (Two triples in one inning) is pretty cool, and I think it’s something that can happen at the same time,” he said of making history.

Meanwhile, Kim Ha-seong, who started at first base for San Diego, went 1-for-4 and reached base for the fourth straight game. With his 131st hit of the season, he broke the major league record for hits in a single season, surpassing last year’s 130, but he was unable to celebrate in the team’s 10-run loss.
