Kim screams ‘Ugh!’ falls to ground, is immediately replaced ‘complaining of extreme pain’… Team’s ninth inning three-run drama.

San Diego Padres infielder Ha Sung Kim, 28, collapsed on the field after being struck on the inside of his knee by a foul ball. Kim screamed in pain several times after being hit by the pitch, which was especially disturbing because he had been playing through most of his injuries without complaining of any particular pain. Kim was immediately replaced and left the field, but the team still managed to complete the winning series in the top of the ninth inning when O’Dowd hit a dramatic come-from-behind three-run arch.

Kim started the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) game against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., on June 26 (KST) as the third baseman and seventh hitter, but was forced to leave the game in the top of the second inning due to an unexpected injury. Kim had been in top form the day before, hitting for the cycle in five straight games, including his fifth home run of the season against the Nats, which made his loss all the more devastating.
Kim Ha-sung’s painful injury replacement, I’ve never seen him in so much pain…

As he walked off the field, the San Diego fans applauded and wished him a speedy recovery. He didn’t even stay in the dugout, but was seen walking down the stairs toward the walkway.
