If Fernando Tatis Jr. and Juan Soto are excited, San Diego is a team with a good chance of winning. But on the 12th (Korean time), the team lost. The bullpen didn’t hold a lead, and cohesion on chances was still lacking.
San Diego lost 3-5 against Minnesota on the 12th at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The attack flow was not bad at the beginning of the game, but it was caught in the opponent’s defense several times and couldn’t escape when running away, and eventually the bullpen allowed a turnaround. Darvish Yu’s victory also flew away. San Diego, which recorded two consecutive losses, remained in third place in the National League West with a record of 19-19 (.500).토토사이트
The start was good. In the first inning, lead batter Tatis Jr. hit a solo home run over the left wall. He hit the first ball, but the ball flew like a clothesline and hit the left side of the crowd. It was Tatis Jr.’s 10th career leadoff home run. He gave up a run in the second inning, but went ahead again in the fourth. When the leader Machado hit a double, Soto backed up with a timely double. It was Soto’s second double of the day.
In the 5th inning, when the score was 2-2, Odor hit a home run to take the lead again. Darvish also endured well with 4 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs until the 6th inning, and passed the mound in the 7th inning, leading 3-2. However, the bullpen collapsed in the 7th inning.
Honeywell took over Barton, but was hit by Gallo after one out, followed by a ball hit by Jeffers and a walk by Buxton, driving the bases loaded with one out. Here, Kepler’s grounder was unable to continue with a double play and allowed a tie, and in the following two-out bases, the third pitcher Wilson was hit by Correa with two RBIs in a timely manner, making him 2 points inferior.
San Diego opened the door again in the eighth on a counterattack by leadoff Tatis Jr.’s walk. However, Cronenworth retreated with a fly ball to center fielder, and Machado’s well-hit ball also hit the ground as it was caught in center fielder Taylor’s lake rain. Taylor stole several hits from San Diego batters that day.
▲ Juan Soto recorded two doubles
Then, Soto’s walk and Bogatz’s ball hit the bases, but Grisham struck out and failed to call in runners. The team with the lowest batting average in the scoring range this season, and in the last 7 games, the batting average in the scoring range went down to 0.133, the chronic disease of San Diego was revealed again. San Diego remained 1 hit in 7 at-bats in scoring position that day as well.
On the other hand, Kim Ha-seong, who started as a third baseman on the 7th, failed to hit. In the first at-bat in the second inning, he struck out with a miss on a high fastball from the opponent’s starting over. In the second at-bat in the third inning, he stayed with a floating ball in center field, and in the third at-bat in the sixth inning, he left a disappointment with a looking strikeout.
In the 9th inning, trailing by 3-5, the last at-bat remained, but San Diego put Carpenter, a left-handed hitter, as a pinch hitter, so Kim Ha-seong had no chance to hit. The batting average for the season slightly decreased from 0.229 to 0.223. OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) fell from 0.686 to 0.668.
In San Diego, Tatis Jr. played an active role with 2 hits in 3 at-bats (1 home run), 1 walk and 1 RBI, and Soto played an active role with 2 hits and 1 RBI, but the cohesion was poor.
