      As the second baseman and lead-off hitter, Kim went one-for-three with an RBI and two walks in the home game.
      In the bottom of the seventh inning with his team losing 8-1, Kim crushed a fastball from reliever Jordan Weems over the left fence. It was his eighth homer of the season.
      Despite his home run, the Padres lost the game 8-3, suffering their second consecutive loss against the Nationals.

      The Padres are currently sitting in fourth place in the National League West with 37 wins and 41 losses.
      After his fifth home run of the season about a month ago, Kim hit a homer on June 23 and another the next day.
      He is expected to set a new career high for home runs in a single season since his debut in Major League Baseball in 2021.
      He hit eight homers with 34 RBIs and a 0.202 batting average in 117 games in his debut season, and 11 homers with 59 RBIs and a 0.251 batting average in 150 games last year. This season he has already hit eight homers with 26 RBIs and a 0.251 batting average in 74 games.
