Lee Jeong-hoo (26, San Francisco Giants), who entered the MLB (American Professional Baseball) stage ahead of the 2024 season and hit hard in the opening game, was silent for three consecutive games. The team also lost 0-4.

Lee Jung-hoo started as the number one hitter and center fielder in the 2024 MLB regular season home game against the San Diego Padres held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California on the 7th and recorded no hits in four at-bats. Jeong-hoo Lee’s batting average, who had not hit a hit in three consecutive games since the game against the Los Angeles (LA) Dodgers on the 4th, fell to 0.200 (7 hits in 35 at-bats, 1 home run, 4 RBIs).

On this day, Lee Jeong-hoo was retired by infield ground balls in both his first and second at-bats. In the bottom of the 6th inning, he hit a ball in his third at-bat, but it headed straight toward left field. In the bottom of the 8th inning, he had to swallow his disappointment again with a ground ball to first base in his last at-bat.

Kim Ha-seong (29, Padres), who worked with Jeong-hoo Lee in Korea for four years (Nexen, Kiwoom), also had no hits in three at-bats. Kim Ha-seong’s season batting average also dropped to 0.200 (8 hits in 40 at-bats, 1 home run, 4 RBI). However, Ha-seong Kim walked in the top of the first inning and then scored by hitting home when Jurickson Profar (31) hit with the bases loaded.

The Padres won 4-0 thanks to Profar’s grand slam in the top of the first inning, avenging their 2-3 loss the previous day. The two teams will play the final game of the three-game series at 5:05 a.m. on the 8th, Korean time.

Meanwhile, on the same day, Dodgers’ Yoshinobu Yamamoto (26) took the mound in an away game against the MLB Chicago Cubs held at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, and pitched 80 pitches over 5 innings, allowing 3 hits, 2 walks, 8 strikeouts, and no runs.

Yamamoto, who retired when the team was ahead 3-0 in the 3rd to 5th innings, became the winning pitcher as the Dodgers won 4-1. He earned his first win in just his third appearance in his MLB debut. Yamamoto signed a large 12-year contract worth $325 million (about 439.7 billion won) with the Dodgers in December last year and wore the Dodgers uniform.

Shohei Otani (30), who hit his second shot of the season the day before, provided support by going 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 run, and 1 walk. He had hits in the top of the first and fifth inning. Ohtani’s season batting average, who hit multiple hits in three consecutive games, rose from 0.286 to 0.304 (14 hits in 46 at-bats, 2 home runs, 6 RBIs).
