Kim went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run, an RBI and two runs scored against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 12 (KST). This tied the record set by Shin-Soo Choo in 2013 while playing for the Cincinnati Reds.
After a fielder’s choice in the first inning, a grounder to third base in the third inning and a grounder to right field in the fourth inning, Kim lined a two-run single to left off Arizona’s fourth pitcher, Luis Frias, with two outs in the sixth inning for a 6-1 lead.
In the ninth inning, Kim led off with a double to left-center. He ran so hard that his helmet came off and he reached second base, then scored on Fernando Tatis Jr.’s double. San Diego snapped a four-game losing streak with a 10-5 victory over Arizona.
San Diego posted a poster congratulating Kim on tying the record for the most consecutive hits by a Korean big leaguer on the team’s official social media accounts, along with the message, “The H in HSK stands for hit.”
“Since signing with San Diego in December 2020, Kim has established himself as one of the Padres’ most reliable hitters,” said MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball. “He hit a sharp shot off Luis Frias to drive in Trent Grisham,” it said.
“He led off the ninth inning with a double, raising his season batting average to 2-for-9 with five RBIs.”
