This is because Kim Ha-seong will be Playing his First MLB Postseason Game with the Padres this season.
According to baseball betting news, yesterday the San Diego Padres got a nice surprise while playing against the White Sox.

Kim Ha-seong will be Playing his First MLB Postseason Game with the Padres
For Kiwoom heroes betting fans, seeing the former Korean shortstop, Kim Ha-seong, in the MLB playoffs is a momentous occasion. This is because since joining the Padres, this will be his first time playing in the MLB postseason. As a second-year rookie for the Padres, this is usually something that takes years before they can experience the playoffs.
The last time the San Diego Padres made it to the playoffs was in 2020 during the COVID pandemic. However, this time, it is their first time making it to the MLB Playoffs after full 162-game season since 2006.
Interestingly enough, the Padres lost 2-1 to the White Sox last Sunday as they heard the Wildcard spot news. According to betting odds websites, this is thanks to their current 87-72 record. This is because no other team has a good enough record to take their wildcard spot away. As for the remaining three games left in the regular season, they are just there for seeding purposes.
For KBO fans, Kim Ha-seong is probably better known for winning the Golden Glove Award in 2018, 2019 and 2020. He left the KBO in 2020 to join the San Diego Pirates for a 4-year deal worth $28 million.
