LG Kim Hyun-soo’s no-hit silence is getting longer. Hitless in 32 consecutive at-bats.
LG won 7-4 in the match against Samsung held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 13th. The batting line drove in 12 hits, but Kim Hyun-soo did not hit any. Kim Hyun-soo started as the third left fielder and recorded 5 at-bats, 4 at-bats, no hits and 1 walk.
In the first inning, he went on base with one out and first base after picking a walk against Samsung starter Heo Yoon-dong. The inning ended with Austin’s second baseman straight hit out and the second base runner’s overrun run.
In the 3rd inning, with 1 out and 1 base, Heo Yun-dong tried to hit his first pitch, but it missed and went high, and the center fielder rushed forward and caught it. Kim Hyun-soo tilted his head as he returned to the dugout. He seemed to mean that something was not going his way.
He came out as the lead hitter in the 5th inning and swung the bat for the second fastball (147km) against Choi Choong-yeon, but the center fielder was out of the ball. He was a batted ball similar to the 3rd inning that floated high.
In the 6th inning, Lee Seung-hyun’s first fastball (145km) in the scoring position with 2nd out and 1st and 2nd bases left the right fielder with a floating ball. After one shot in the 8th inning, I tried a surprise bunt on the first pitch, but it was a miss. He aimed for a loophole in the defensive shift shifted to the right, but even this did not go as planned. In the second pitch, the first baseman stepped back with a ground ball.
On this day, with no hits in 5 at-bats, 32 consecutive at-bats have been hitless since the NC game on the 2nd. In the span, he only had one walk and one RBI on a sacrifice fly. He lost close to 10% of his batting average. His batting average for the season fell from 40% to 30%.
Kim Hyun-soo, who finished April with a batting average of 40% and a high sense of hitting, fell into a slump in May. LG had a sweet break with the cancellation of 3 consecutive rainy days due to spring rain on the 4th to 6th, but did Kim Hyun-soo’s good hitting feel go wrong due to the spring rain? After going hitless in the last seven games, his batting average for May is 6 p.m. (2 hits in 33 at-bats).
On the 13th, Samsung pitchers all focused on Kim Hyun-soo’s body course. Kim Hyun-soo aggressively hit the inside ball from the first pitch, but all got out of the hitting point. 토스카지노
Kim Hyun-soo has been hitless for over a week, but continues to appear in the starting lineup. LG’s outfield depth is thick. In addition to Kim Hyun-soo, Hong Chang-ki, Park Hae-min, Moon Seong-joo, and Lee Jae-won, who recovered from an injury, joined the first team. Even if you use the designated hitter position, there are bench resources.
Manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop said of the thick outfield depth, “If it’s sluggish and doesn’t hit, you can subtract it. Resting when it’s not good can also manage batting average.” However, Moon Seong-joo was absent for two consecutive days on the 12th and 13th due to mild phlegm. If Moon Sung-joo’s condition improves, Kim Hyun-soo may be removed from the starting lineup.
