MVP worries were useless.
April was cold for Lee Jung-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes).
Lee Jung-hoo, who became the batting champion for two consecutive years with a batting average of .349 last year, took first place in on-base percentage (0.421), slugging percentage (0.575), runs batted in (113), and hits (193), winning five gold medals in batting.
If the 2023 season is completed normally, it is possible to advance overseas by posting. That much, he made important and thorough preparations, but the start was not very good.
He swung a hard hit with a batting average of 4.2 9 Lee (6 hits in 14 at-bats) in the WBC (World Baseball Classic), but his batting average was only .2 1 8 during the month of April after the opening.
It was the first terrible slump he faced since his debut. There were many concerns about Lee Jung-hoo, but Lee Jung-hoo began to show a rebound in earnest from May.
Even during the slump, his batting speed and angle were not bad. Recently, his hit rate has started to rise, and he has continued his hit streak in all eight recent games. Homeruns also started to come out well.
After hitting a home run against the Hanwha Eagles on the 31st of last month, he drew an arch when he needed it most against the SSG Landers on the 4th. He struck out in the first inning, but hit each in the fourth and sixth innings, and in the top of the eighth, when he was losing 2-3, he came out as the lead batter and hit a home run against Choi Min-joon to turn the game around. After that, Kim Hye-sung’s home run continued, and Kiwoom won 4-3. Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki smiled, saying, “Lee Jung-hoo and Kim Hye-sung’s home runs are decisive.” Kiwoom was able to have its first win after losing 8 matches against SSG this season.토토사이트
Kiwoom, who was considered a strong candidate for the championship this season as the runner-up in the Korean Series last year, is staying in 8th place with 22 wins and 32 losses.
Lee Jung-hoo’s batting average, which was once in the 10% range, has risen to 208 percent. As Lee Jung-hoo revives in the other line, overall synergy can be expected. Kiwoom can also dream of a rebound.
