“Kim is San Diego’s MVP” despite ‘Fury Kick’ freak injury
“He’s the MVP of the Padres (San Diego) this season. He’s played as hard as anyone.”
Despite his freak injury, local media highlighted his performance.
Kim was left out of the starting lineup for the Padres’ home game against the New York Mets on 9 September at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA.
온라인바카라This was due to an injury he sustained during the game the previous day (8 August). Kim suffered a toe injury the previous day against the Mets when he kicked a cooler near the dugout behind first base. He was trying to advance to third base after a double in the bottom of the seventh inning when he screamed down the third base line. After returning to the dugout, he kicked a nearby bucket of water in frustration, thinking it was empty. The problem was that the bucket, which he thought was empty, still had water in it. Feeling the pain, Kim was subbed out of the game, and an X-ray at the hospital revealed that there was no fracture. However, he was ruled out of the next day’s game. “We’ll see how it goes day by day,” said San Diego head coach Bob Melvin.
“I was trying to be aggressive at the plate, but it didn’t go the way I wanted,” Kim said in an interview. I think the third baseman pushed me a little bit with his glove, and I was angry.” “I take full responsibility for the play I made and the mistakes I made. It won’t happen again.”
Local media also lamented Kim’s injury. MLB.com’s AJ Casabell, who covers San Diego, wrote: “Kim’s decision to run cost the game (the loss). The injury could have cost San Diego even more. He is one of the most valuable players in San Diego,” and lamented his injury.Casabell wrote on social media, “Everyone makes mistakes and regrets them,” adding, “Kim is the undisputed Padres MVP this year. He’s played as hard as anyone this season. He (accidentally) got injured, but he vowed to never do it again,” and encouraged Kim.
Meanwhile, without Kim, San Diego started Matthew Batten at second base against the Mets on the 9th. The Padres avenged the previous day’s loss with a 3-1 victory, thanks to a two-run double in the bottom of the second inning. Starter Blake Snell also secured the win, striking out 11 in six innings.
