Kim Ha-sung exploded with three hits in ‘Korean Derby’…Bae Jihwan is out
In the first major league match of the season, San Diego’s Kim Ha-sung played three hits and was very active.
Kim Ha-sung started as the first batter and second baseman in an away game against Pittsburgh and recorded three hits and two RBIs in five at-bats.
The season’s batting average was raised to 0.258, and the number of RBIs was increased to 28.
Pittsburgh’s Bae Ji-hwan, the seventh batter and second baseman, scored an RBI with a sacrifice fly in his first at-bat, but struck out in his second and third at-bats.
In the fourth at-bat in the sixth inning, he was sent off while protesting the referee’s strike decision.
Pittsburgh came from behind to win a 9-4 victory over San Diego and escaped its losing streak.
