Kim went 0-for-2 with a walk and two strikeouts in the leadoff spot in the lineup for the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan, USA, on 24 June.

The day before (23), when he hit his career-high 12th home run, Kim went 3-for-4 with a home run, two walks, one RBI, and two runs scored. But the Padres struggled at the plate, falling 1-3 to Detroit.

Kim’s batting average dropped slightly to .267, but his on-base percentage rose to .359.

In the top of the first inning, Kim drew a leadoff walk, but Fernando Tatis Jr. struck out and Juan Soto singled to end the inning.

In the top of the third, Kim reached base on a throwing error by third baseman Jack McKinstry. But Tatis Jr. flied out to centre field to end the rally.

Kim drew another walk in the top of the sixth, this time to Tatis Jr. for a double.

The final at-bat was also disappointing. In the top of the eighth, Kim hit a slow grounder to shortstop and sprinted to first base, but was narrowly thrown out at the plate.

It was a lethargic performance by San Diego on the day.

Starting pitcher Joe Musgrove was tagged for three runs in the third inning, including two solo shots. A silent batting line-up managed just one run in the top of the seventh on a Gary Sanchez single. They had one last chance in the top of the ninth with runners on second and third, but Sanchez grounded out to end the game.

With a 48-52 record, the Padres sit in fourth place in the National League West. After a 10-game road trip, the Padres return home for a three-game series against Choi’s former team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, starting on the 25th.
