‘Doping Positive → 80G Discipline’ 451.6 Billion Man Silent before return, Ha-seong Kim also 4G consecutive no hits… San Diego wins 7-5

Fernando Tanis Jr. (24, San Diego Padres) of ‘Love and Hate’ returned to the Major League (MLB) stage after 1 year and 6 months. In the long hiatus, the bat continued to spin as if he had not yet found a sense of the game.

Tatis Jr. started as the first hitter in right field in the 2023 MLB visiting game against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, and bowed his head with 2 strikeouts in 5 at-bats.

The reaction of many spectators was mixed before Tatis Jr.’s return, which was held on an away field rather than at home. There were cheers, but fierce booing was unavoidable.

Tatis Jr., who entered the big leagues in 2019, has hit more than 20 homers with a .300 batting average since his first season. San Diego signed a 14-year, $340 million (451.6 billion won) contract with him ahead of the 2021 season.

That year, Tatis Jr. recorded 42 home runs and 97 RBIs, becoming the National League (NL) home run king. He was evaluated as a superstar who will be responsible for the present and future of San Diego.

However, that expectation did not last long. Ahead of the 2020 season, he underwent surgery on his left wrist following a motorcycle accident. He, who had his long-awaited return on the verge of his return, was once again frustrated by San Diego fans when the banned drug clostebol was detected in a doping test in August of last year. Ultimately, he was forced to accept an 80-game suspension.

The disciplinary period expired after the Atlanta Braves game on the 20th, and San Diego immediately included Tatis Jr. in the starting lineup that day.

His physical condition appears to have fully recovered. He tuned his game sense in 8 minor league triple-A games, hitting 0.515 (17 hits in 33 at-bats), 7 homers, and 15 RBIs.

His first team stage was different. He stood at bat five times that day, but the bat only cut through the air and postponed his first hit report of the season to the next game.

In defense, he showed a good performance at the end of the 8th inning, but at the end of the 9th he failed to properly catch Kim Ha-seong’s call sign, creating a scene where he almost crashed.

Kim Ha-seong, who played as second baseman with the 7th batter, also went silent in 4 at-bats. No hits in 4 games. His batting average also declined slightly, from 0.217 to 0.203 (13 hits in 64 at-bats).

Despite the silence of the two, the San Diego batting line gained strength. In the top of the 2nd inning, Trent Grisham took the lead with a 2-RBI double, and as the opponent caught up with a run, Zander Bogaerts hit a 2-run homer in the 3rd inning and Matt Carpenter hit a solo shot in the 4th inning and ran away again.

Arizona did not back down easily either.메이저놀이터 At the end of the 4th inning, the batting line showed concentration and tied the score at 5-5, but Grisham turned the tide once again. In the top of the 6th inning, he hit a final double with 2 RBIs from 2nd, 1st and 2nd bases, giving the team victory.

Tatis Jr. played as a shortstop before his injury and was initially classified as a competitor threatening Kim Ha-sung’s position.
