“It’s too stressful.”
Ha-seong Kim of the San Diego Padres could not hide his anger and regret.

The 5th inning was disappointing. He had a tenacious battle with opposing starter Tony Gonsolin that went all the way to the 11th pitch, but was retracted after striking out looking.
Gonsolin’s 94.3 mph four-seam fastball on the 11th pitch was an obvious ball that went to the body. Even so, referee Bill Miller’s hand went up.
Ha-seong Kim,토토사이트 who jumped up and protested the decision after the looking strikeout decision, said, “I thought, ‘Today will be okay’ because the first at-bat feeling was good. (In the 5th inning) he was the leadoff hitter and was trying to get on base somehow. Even if only one (failure) came out in one at-bat, it would be disadvantageous, but all three (strikes) were balls,” he expressed regret about the strike ball judgment.
“I had to fight the pitcher, but I fought the umpire. It’s not a bad feeling, but if you go like this, you might feel bad again. I can’t help it.” He swallowed regret.
He, who had a hard time with the referees’ generous strike zone in 2021 when he was a rookie, said, “The first year was bad, but last year it was fine. But this year, I don’t know if it’s because it’s the beginning, but I keep hitting the ball, so the count is going up and the results are getting worse.”
What advice would coaches give in this situation? “The ball is called a strike, but I have no advice. He said he had no specific advice.
The team continues to be frustrated. With this defeat, they fell into a 5-game losing streak. 3 wins, 7 losses in last 10 matches. The season ended with a record of 19 wins and 22 losses. It is 7 games behind the Dodgers.
Ha-seong Kim “There is nothing special about the Dodgers, but it is true that they lost. After admitting defeat, saying, “I can’t help it,” he said, “Because the team atmosphere is not good, (games like this) continue.”
It was a day when the team lost and the at-bat didn’t work out. The fact that the force of power he could not deny was at work is making it harder for him. “It’s the worst stress ever,” he said, shaking his head.
