Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres), who has hit safely in five straight games as of late, hit safely in six straight games and homered for the first time in nine games.
San Diego hosted the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., on April 25.
Kim, who started at third base and batted eighth for San Diego on the day, hit a one-run shot over the right-center field fence off Washington starter Trevor Williams in the fifth inning with his team trailing 2-5.
Archie’s fifth of the season. It was Kim’s first home run in nine games since he hit one against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 14, and it extended his hitting streak to six games 스포츠토토.
Kim is the centerpiece of San Diego’s infield. Since the injury to Manny Machado (31), he has been playing third base instead of second. On top of that, he’s been hitting consistently.
