‘2G in a row without a hit’ Kim drops batting average to .276…SD falls to 4-5, loses second straight game

San Diego Padres’ Ha-Sung Kim (28) went hitless for the second straight game.

Starting at first base against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday (July 27) at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he went 1-for-3 with one run scored and one walk.

Kim led off the first inning with a single and scooped up a five-pitch 82.6-mile-per-hour (132.9-kilometer) slider from Milwaukee starter Freddy Peralta, but it was caught at third base. San Diego opened the scoring in the second inning on a solo homer by Xander Bogaerts.

Kim hit Peralta’s six-pitch 79.3 mph (127.6 km/h) changeup with one out in the third, but it was caught on a grounder to third base.

Milwaukee broke the game open in the bottom of the fifth with five runs on Mark Canha’s single, Bryce Trang’s single, Andrew Monasterio’s RBI single, Tron Taylor’s walk, scoring on a stolen base and a throwing error by the catcher, Christian Yelich’s RBI single, William Contreras’ RBI double, and Carlos Santana’s RBI double.

Kim Ha-seong led off the sixth inning with a double off Peralta. Juan Soto followed with a walk to put runners on first and second, and Manny Machado followed with an RBI single. Ha-Sung Kim also scored.

With runners on first and second in the seventh, Kim hit a two-pitch 97.3 mph (156.6 km/h) sinker from reliever Elvis Peguero but was thrown out at second on a fielder’s choice. San Diego cut the deficit to 5-4 in the eighth on a Fernando Tatis single and a two-run homer by Soto. But no more runs would come.카지노
