In his seventh leadoff start of the season, Ha-Sung Kim (28, San Diego Padres) hit his second of the series and eighth of the season.
San Diego hosted the Washington Nationals at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on April 26.
Kim started at first and second base for San Diego, and in the seventh inning, with the Padres trailing 8-1, he hit a solo home run over the left field fence off Jordan Weems.
The home run was hit off a 97-mph fastball. He had been struggling against fastballs in the past, but this home run reached a whopping 104.6 mph.메이저사이트
