Lee Jung-hoo, the main hitter of Kiwoom Heroes, broke the silence. Although the team lost, it hit a home run that could signal a rebound.
Kiwoom lost 1-3 in the first match of the season against SSG Landers in the 2023 KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 21st. Ariel Furado, who started the game, was okay with 6⅓ innings and 3 runs, but the other line’s scoring support was lacking.
The starting lineup for the day was Kim Hye-seong (2nd baseman) Lee Yong-gyu (left fielder) Lee Jung-hoo (center fielder) Lee Hyeong-jong (right fielder) Russell (shortstop) Kim Hwi-jip (3rd baseman) Jeon Byung-woo (1st baseman) Kim Dong-heon (catcher) Kim Soo-hwan (designated hitter).온라인카지노
One point was Lee Jung-hoo’s solo home run. There were only 4 hits. Lee Jeong-hoo’s solo home run, Yong-gyu Lee’s two hits, and Kim Hui-jip’s double were all.
Nevertheless, Lee Jung-hoo’s home run was a welcome day. Until the match against Samsung on the 20th, Lee Jung-hoo’s batting average was only 20%. 11 hits in 55 at-bats in 14 games. Although he has 2 home runs and 10 RBIs, it was an awkward figure for Lee Jung-hoo, the “MVP” who won 5 batting crowns last year.
On the 19th against Samsung, Lee Jung-hoo was silent with no hits in 6 at-bats and 3 at-bats against Samsung on the 20th. On this day, against SSG Kim Kwang-Hyun, there was no result with no hits in 11 at-bats until the second at-bat in the 4th inning.
Before the game, manager Hong Won-ki cautiously said, “You have to keep things simple at bat to get results.”
However, Lee Jung-hoo hit his third home run of the season against Kim Kwang-hyeon in the third at-bat in the sixth inning. He attacked Kim Gwang-hyun’s 6th fastball and passed the batted ball over the right wall.
Although the team lost, it was the first hit in 12 at-bats and the first home run in 4 games. Attention is focusing on whether it will signal a rebound.
