Oriole Kim Hyun-soo marks his sixth consecutive game

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Kim Hyun-soo stepped on base for the sixth consecutive game.

In an MLB game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, Kim batted second and went 0-for-4, marking his third straight game without any hits. But, he still got on the base with a base-on-ball. His batting average as of Monday decreased to .333.

Flying out at his first at-bat in the first inning, Kim walked to the first base during his second at-bat at the top of third. Although Kim got on the base, he couldn’t score a run as he was tagged out during the next play in the Blue Jays’ double-play attempt.

The Orioles lost to the Blue Jays 10-9, their third straight loss in the American League.
