“I did that” SD, who subdued LAD after 17 years, why director Roberts is more bitter

The San Diego Padres once again achieved a dramatic come-from-behind victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In the 2023 Major League Baseball match against the Los Angeles Dodgers held on the 6th (Korean time) at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA, San Diego scored a whopping 7 points at the end of the 8th inning, trailing 1-3, and won 8-3 come-from-behind. San Diego blocked the Dodgers’ 4-game winning streak.스포츠토토

San Diego was trailing 1-3 at the end of the 8th inning, when lead hitter Gary Sanchez went on base with a hit, then Trent Grisham was out and went to first base with one out, but Kim Ha-seong walked on base and Fernando Tatis Jr. also got a walk and took a chance with one out and loaded bases. Juan Soto rolled a batted ball in front of the second baseman, and second baseman Kike Hernandez’s throw from first base, which was running and dashing forward, fell into the dugout.

In the meantime, third base runner Sanchez and second base runner Kim Ha-seong hit the home ground, and the score was tied 3-3. In the ensuing 1st out, 2nd and 3rd bases, Manny Machado turned 5-3 with 2 RBIs and a timely hit to the left. Luck followed again. Machado was caught in the pitcher check, but as the pitcher’s throw exceeded the height of the first baseman, Machado headed from first base to third base, and Jake Cronenworth hit a timely one RBI. Grisham hit a timely hit with 2 RBIs in the second bases loaded that followed.

Until this day, San Diego was absolutely inferior to the Dodgers with a record of 1 win and 6 losses. However, despite winning the most wins (111 wins) in the major leagues last year, the Dodgers, who were knocked out of the league division series by San Diego, held back once again. It reminded me of the day on November 4, last year, in Game 4 of the Division Series, when they were trailing 0-3, they scored 5 runs in the 7th inning to win 5-3 and eliminate the Dodgers.

Major League Baseball’s official website said, “The Padres produced the best inning of the season. They spent most of the game waiting for the game, then drove in 7 runs with 6 outs remaining and 2 runs behind. I went crazy with the -3 victory,” he said, conveying the mood of the day.

After arguing with the umpire in the 6th inning that day, Machado, who hit a timely hit in the 8th inning and refused to be replaced while limping on his hamstring, couldn’t hide his excitement, saying, “This is our baseball.” “We know how strong we are. We are capable people. We have to keep competing and win every game,” said former starter Blake Snell.

“If we continue to play baseball like today, we will be able to see further,” Soto hoped. With this victory, San Diego caught up with the Chicago Cubs, who ranked 5th in the National League wild card, by two games. It is three games behind the third-place Cincinnati Reds, who are given a wild card ticket. “We got the confidence to do something late in the game against good teams,” said San Diego manager Bob Melvin.

Interestingly, it is the first time since September 17, 2006 (8 runs in 3 innings) that San Diego scored more than 7 runs against the Dodgers. And it is true that one of the San Diego players who hit the right time and contributed 8 points was the current Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who was humiliated by a come-from-behind defeat that day. Manager Roberts had no choice but to look bitterly at San Diego’s heated 8th inning.

Meanwhile, Kim Ha-seong, one of San Diego’s hot hitters, got a hit in the 3rd inning and a walk that tied the team in the 8th inning, increasing the number of games with two or more bases to 13 consecutive games since the match against the Detroit Tigers on the 23rd of last month. Kim Ha-seong is breaking the record of the longest consecutive two-base run by a Korean major leaguer, surpassing Choo Shin-soo (10 games), every day.
