Suddenly, the Tigers scored 1 point.

The flow that KIA had been good since the end of April was completely broken this week. Following the SSG game in Gwangju on the 10th and 11th, they played against Doosan in Jamsil on the 12th and 13th. In particular, the batting line was somewhat sluggish during the 4-game losing streak. Against SSG, I only scored 3 points two days in a row, then came up to Jamsil and scored only one point two days in a row.

On this day, the KIA lineup consisted of Park Chan-ho, Lee Chang-jin, Kim Sun-bin, Choi Hyung-woo, Hwang Dae-in, Socrates Brito, Lee Woo-sung, Byun Woo-hyuk, Joo Hyo-sang, and Han Seung-taek. Recently, Ryu Ji-hyeok and Ko Jong-wook, who are the most compatible, have been left out. Ryu Ji-hyeok had a batting average of 0.319 this season with 8 RBIs and 9 points, and a batting average of 0.306 in the last 10 games was okay. Ko Jong-wook has a batting average of 0.367 this season with 3 RBIs and 10 points. Batting average in the last 10 games is 0.344.

Ryu Ji-hyeok suffered an ankle injury from his foul hit in the 8th inning against Doosan in Jamsil on the 12th. He was immediately replaced, which turned out to be a simple bruise. On this day, he was omitted from the starting lineup for protection reasons. He played one at-bat as a pinch hitter in the second half of the game, but did not hit.

Ko Jong-wook was left out because Doosan starting pitcher Choi Seung-yong, left-hander. Head coach Kim Jong-guk set up a table setter for Park Chan-ho and Lee Chang-jin with right-handed hitter Lee Chang-jin in the face of Choi Seung-yong. As a result, the two only had 1 hit in 8 at-bats. I couldn’t cook at all.먹튀검증

It is true that Ko Jong-wook is weak against left-handed pitchers this season with a batting average of 0.143. It is highly likely that this data was referenced. However, it is regrettable that we did not find the timing to appoint the current best hitter as a pinch hitter in the second half of the game. As much as that, the game was not solved for KIA.

On this day, KIA only scored 1 point in 6 hits in 34 at-bats. At the beginning of the season, Choi Hyung-woo, who hit the best in the team, recorded multiple hits including one RBI and a double, but that was practically all. In the game on the 11th, it was 6 hits and 1 point in 32 at-bats. The team’s batting average over the two days was only 0.182.

As the two best hitters in the team were left out, the KIA batting line became the ‘Hyungwoo Tigers’. Socrates Brito, Kim Seon-bin, Hwang Dae-in, and Byeon Woo-hyuk, etc., did not show a different impact. Big pitcher Yang Hyeon-jong, who will start on the 14th, has a heavy burden on his shoulders.
