A new hero is born every day.
The epitome of a well-to-do family. A warm wind is blowing in the young Samsung Lions baseball. It is a warm spring breeze that has endured the cold winter and greeted it.
On the 18th, Samsung ran a 4-game winning streak against Daegu KT, and with 6 wins and 2 losses, it rose to the joint first place in the demonstration game with LG.
It is not a fuss in advance, considering that it is an exhibition game to win four consecutive victories or come first.메이저놀이터
However, it is encouraging that a new face of a hero appears every day.
The hero against KT on the 18th was Kim Tae-hoon, a transfer student outfielder.
He led a 5-4 come-from-behind victory with 2 hits and 4 RBIs, including a two-run home run and a come-from-behind final hit.
On the 19th at KT, Lee Seong-gyu was the hero. He took the place of Kim Hyeon-jun, who suffered a fracture of the right hand bone during the first swing, and led the team to a 4-1 victory with 3 hits in 4 at-bats including a home run for two days in a row. It was a cycling hit without a triple. Since then, he has established himself as a top hitter in center field and is filling the void left by Kim Hyun-joon.
From the 20th, it was Kim Dong-yeop’s time. On the 19th, the previous day, he replaced KT and reported the first hit in the demonstration game with a double in the rain in the 6th inning, and the seal was released. In the match against Lotte on the 20th, he led a 5-2 victory with 2 hits and 1 RBI in 4 at-bats, including a double. Driven by momentum, he hit a two-run home run against Lotte Choi Jun-yong on the 21st. Demonstration game match-up home run and long-running show in 3 consecutive games.
Another new face appeared in the match against Lotte on the 21st. It was Gong Min-gyu, a promising left-hander.
He recorded his first hit in the demonstration game with a double in right field in his first at-bat in the second inning. In the fourth inning, he hit a two-run home run over the right fence against starter Na Kyun-an. In the 5th inning, he recorded a cycling hit that missed a triple with a left-handed hit. 3 hits in 5 at-bats, 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored.
The effects of the 1st and 2nd Army joint camp in Okinawa after going through an intensive finishing camp from last fall are starting to materialize. Silent competition continues fiercely. It is a synergistic effect that produces results by being stimulated by the performance of other players and focusing more.
Regarding the recent streak, Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “It is positive that the players who played as substitutes in the second half of the game are doing well,” and “It was also good that they made long hits with confident swings.”
As the situation is like this, a positive atmosphere is read that the bleeding caused by the vacancy of Kim Hyun-joon, the nucleus of the center line, can be minimized through a competitive structure. Coach Park said, “It’s unfortunate, but it can be an opportunity and motivation for other players.” He then interpreted the birth of a new hero positively, saying, “The players have prepared a lot in the competitive landscape. That’s how the team’s player base is getting thicker.”
Due to the relatively weak external recruitment, the view that Samsung is in the lower ranks is dominant. Will this prediction become a reality? Or should I write an anti-war drama amidst the back-up members returning from hell training?
Spring is coming to Samsung, which has endured the cold winter.
