“I hope that not only (Hwang) Dae-in, but also Socrates will rise from yesterday.”
The commander’s wish became a reality. Socrates Brito (31, KIA Tigers) woke up. He fired cannons for two days in a row and showed signs of recovering his missing slugging power. It was an arch of hope like heavenly gold that came out in the absence of key hitters Na Seong-beom and Kim Do-young.
In the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League away match against the Samsung Lions held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 17th, Socrates started as the third hitter in center field and played 2 hits, 2 RBIs, and 2 runs in 5 at bats, including a solo home run, and led the team to a 7-6 victory. hugged
Socrates was somewhat disappointed. He wore a KIA uniform last season and he played a big role with a batting average of 0.311, 17 homers and 77 RBIs. He was a medium-long-distance hitter who boasted sophisticated hitting rather than a geopo type, but he was a foreign hitter who produced many doubles and recorded a slugging average of 0.494.
This is the reason why his performance this season was somewhat disappointing. Prior to this series, there were only two home runs. His slugging percentage also did not exceed 40%. This was the reason why director Kim Jong-kook wanted Hwang Dae-in to survive.
Socrates, who started happily with a heavy hit from the first at-bat in the first inning, hit the infield grounder toward the second baseman in the top of the third inning and called the runner on third base home. In the fifth inning, he hit a 139km/h fastball from opponent starter Albert Suarez and hit a solo home run that went over the right wall. Season 4 gun. After stealing a three-run home run from Lee Seung-hyun the previous day, he regained his confidence with a home run in two consecutive games.
After the game, Socrates said, “I ended my losing streak yesterday, and today I feel good because I played a game that continues my winning streak.”체스카지노
With Na Seong-beom leaving, the check on Socrates had to be concentrated. He was also blamed for doing a sharper analysis on the opposing team as a second-year outsider. However, Socrates took the lead in breaking the team’s five-game losing streak with his performance the previous day, and led the team’s winning streak by showing off his slugging power until today.
He continued, “Recently, the feeling of hitting has been revived, but nothing has changed technically. I will continue to help the team play fall baseball.”
Along with Socrates’ rebound, the KIA lineup also woke up. The team’s batting line, which only scored 12 points during the five-game losing streak, scored 15 points in only two games against Samsung. Socrates had 3 hits (2 homers) and 5 RBIs in 9 at-bats. With the revived Socrates, the KIA lineup can enjoy the umbrella effect. 16 wins, 17 losses,
