April 10, 2024

Dong-kyoon Kim‘s consecutive-game hitting streak has now climbed to 20 games. The Seattle second baseman smacked 1 hit against the Houston Oilers in today’s game at Salty Park, but he expressed mixed emotions about the streak after watching the Salts drop the game, 8-6.

Dong-kyoon Kim flied out in the 3rd, hit a three-run double in the 4th, grounded out in the 6th and flied out in the 8th.
