Kim Ha-seong and Choi Ji-man’s matchup was ‘highly anticipated’

The game was headlined by the Korean derby between Kim Ha-seong and Choi Ji-man. After failing to produce a hit the previous day, Kim had two walks and three strikeouts, and he’s been on a roll lately, hitting a career-high 12 home runs in Detroit on April 23.

Choi hasn’t been bad either. He has already hit four home runs since returning from injury, including a home run on April 22. However, he has missed a lot of time recently and was left out of the lineup for this game.

He led off the first inning with a walk and took a four-pitch fastball from Pittsburgh’s Frister for a solo home run over the left-center field fence.

It was Kim’s 13th home run of the season. It traveled 387 feet (118 meters) and had a bat speed of 100.5 mph (161.7 km/h).

However, San Diego was unable to capitalize on the momentum.

After Tatis Jr. grounded out to shortstop, Bogaerts was forced out at second.

In the bottom of the inning, Kim led off with a three-ball, two-strike, full-count pitch, but he fouled off a six-pitch sinker to shortstop.
