Lee Jeong-hoo, no hit in 18 at-bats… Kim Ha-seong’s first ‘2 errors in one game’ since debut – Chosun Ilbo VRESP

Lee Jeong-hoo (26, San Francisco Giants) recorded a hit in 18 at-bats on the 8th (Korean time), breaking his silence at the plate for the first time in 4 games. Kim Ha-seong, who played in the same game, recorded 2 errors in defense, marking the first time since his debut that he allowed 2 errors in one game.

This morning, in the game between the San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, Lee Jung-hoo started as the number one hitter and center fielder.

The hit came in the first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning. He hit five pitches against San Diego starting right-hander Matt Waldron and became a heavy hit that passed near second base.

This was the first hit in 4 games and 18 at-bats since the game against the Dodgers on the 3rd. Lee Jeong-hoo advanced to third base on a double by third hitter Jorge Soler, but was unable to score due to a lack of timely hits.

In the second at-bat of the third inning, Waldron’s outside sinker was hit, but Padres shortstop Kim Ha-seong quickly ran out and handled it, putting him out. In the 6th inning, when the Giants were down 0-2, Lee Jeong-hoo hit an ordinary grounder to Kim Ha-seong again in his third at-bat. However, Ha-seong Kim advanced to first base with a bad throw to first base. Lee Jung-hoo reached third base on walks by Lamonte Wade Jr. and Michael Conforto, then came home on Matt Chapman’s infield ground ball and succeeded in scoring.

Jeong-hoo Lee was out as the leadoff hitter in the 8th inning when he hit a low first pitch from Padres’ Japanese left-hander Yuki Matsui in his fourth at-bat, which ended up being a catcher’s fly. On this day, he had 1 hit and 1 run in 4 at-bats. His season batting average rose slightly from .200 to .205 (8-for-38).

The Giants came from behind to win the game 3-2. After Lee Jeong-hoo was out in the 8th inning, 2 more runs were scored due to hits by subsequent batters and Kim Ha-seong’s error, turning the game around 3-2.

Ha-seong Kim recorded 1 hit and 1 RBI in 4 at-bats. He recorded his first hit in three games with a timely hit to left in the 6th inning when the team was ahead 1-0 with one out and runners on first and third base. His season batting average is 0.205 (9 hits in 44 at-bats), the same as Lee Jeong-hoo.

With this victory, the Giants ended their three-game home series against the Padres with a 2-1 win. The two teams, who faced each other back to back at the beginning of the season, will face each other again in September, five months later.
