Kim Ha-seong and Choi Ji-man, the second Korean major leaguers to start together.
Even before the game, the local reporters were interested in it.

“No matter how close we are, we became close quickly because we are abroad and we are major league players, so I didn’t care about that and became close quickly. I don’t have this!”
The first to open fire was Kim Ha-seong, who has recently been showing off his peak blow.
He broke a 10-game hitting streak with a technical hit starting in the first inning.
Then he stole second base right away, and succeeded in stealing the base by performing a witty running base play that only slightly took out his shoulder at the opponent’s tag.
Ha-seong Kim, who recorded his 23rd steal of the season as the Dodgers’ video readout kept the centrifuge, surpassed Shin-soo Choo’s 22 steals and set a new record for the most stolen bases by a Korean player in a single season.
Kim Ha-seong, who also picked up a hit in the third inning, achieved triple-digit hits for the season and added one more base with a sprint that caused his helmet to come off.
Choi Ji-man, who made his debut in San Diego amid warm welcome from home fans,
“Jiman choy! Jeon choy!”
He presented a unique and sophisticated pioneering plan.
After getting on base with a walk in the 4th inning, the opposing catcher missed the ball and succeeded in scoring, and after stepping on the home plate, Ha-sung Kim, who was at the plate, gave a high five.
Choi Ji-man, who scored after a walk in the 6th inning, once again enjoyed the joy of Kim Ha-seong.
Despite the great performance of the Korean duo, San Diego suffered a painful come-from-behind defeat due to lack of support.메이저사이트
After leading 3-2, they gave 5 points in the 8th inning and 3 points in the 9th inning, and Soto fired a chaser in the last attack, but could not turn the game around again.
