Two-hit, dizzying moment for Kim Ha-Sung, and Edman is the hero
After dancing with his teammates before the game, Kim had a giddy moment at third base.
When Machado hit a hard foul ball, he had to sweep his chest.
On closer inspection, it was a split-second moment when Kim, who had a huge lead, avoided the risk of injury by showing incredible quickness.
Kim continued his momentum, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in his first at-bat, and was a Gold Glove candidate on defense.
After catching Korean Tommy Hyun-Soo Edmon’s hard-hit grounder, he made a spectacular throw to end the game.
[Local play-by-play comment: “That’s good defense. Looks like he handles it really easily. Kim Ha-Sung is probably the best infield defender in the major leagues, not just the National League, but the American League as well.”]
But Tommy Edmon, whose hit was erased by Ha-Sung Kim, inevitably became the hero of the game.
With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, he took advantage of baseball’s proverbial “from the bottom of the ninth” and smashed a 156-mph fastball from the closer for a game-winning two-run shot.
For the second night in a row, Edman was the hero of a dramatic finish, throwing his helmet and celebrating with his teammates…
[Tommy Suspension Edman/St. Louis: “It’s crazy, it’s crazy, Heather threw the best fastball of the game, I think I got lucky, I hope I can keep this momentum going.”]
Kim, 먹튀검증 who has been impressive alongside WBC keystone duo Edmon, is a frontrunner for the Gold Glove at second base.
