"I can't lie that I wasn't looking for [a home run], but I was mainly focused on making a good hit with good contact and hit the ball as hard as possible," Kim said through interpreter Danny Lee. "That was my main focus. …I was really excited to have my first home run to make a contribution to the team win. That was the main thing that made me happy. I would have been still been happy if the home run came in the situation that doesn't decide the win or loss, but because it actually helped the team to win, it really made me happy."
