The bat of Joey Gallo (30, Minnesota Twins), who always showed a lack of hitting accuracy despite the strongest power, is exploding.
Minnesota had an away game against the Miami Marlins on the 4th (Korean time) at Londipo Park in Miami, Florida, USA. 안전놀이터
On this day, Gallo started as Minnesota’s 7th and 1st baseman and hit Miami starting pitcher Johnny Cueto with 3 runs over the right fence in the second inning with a 1-0 lead on 1st and 3rd base.
Gallo’s second match in a row and the third cannon of the season. Gallo boosted his momentum by hitting two homers and a double against the Kansas City Royals on the 3rd.
This broke the slump in the opening game on the 31st and the 2nd of last month. With a home run on the day, Gallo immediately took the lead in home runs and rose to the top.
Even with the best power in the major leagues, Gallo has always had an issue with accuracy. Even in a season in which he hit 41 home runs, his batting average remained at 0.209.
However, he is expected to show a different appearance this season. This is because the infield defensive shift was restricted. Gallo is expected to be the top beneficiary.
