LG all-around player Kim Min-seong did his part in the center hitter challenge following shortstop.
Kim Min-seong started as the third hitter shortstop in the match against the NC Dinos of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 20th. It has been 1048 days since Kim Min-seong was in the starting lineup as the third hitter. The last was on June 6, 2020 at Gocheok Kiwoom. At the time, he went 0-for-2 with 2 walks.
In the meantime, LG has entrusted Kim Hyun-soo as the third hitter. However, in the training before the match, Kim Hyun-soo suddenly felt uncomfortable around his waist, and the lineup changed. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop’s choice was Kim Min-seong.
Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop said in a briefing, “Kim Hyun-soo has a slightly bad back, so he’s missing. I think he’ll be a pinch hitter. He told me to rest because he didn’t feel well.” I think it will be better. There should be one behind, and Minseong doesn’t have a bad feeling.” Before this game, Kim Min-seong had appeared in 15 games and recorded a batting average of 0.325.
Kim Min-seong entered the first at-bat in the first and second base opportunity in the first inning. Here, he struck a right-handed hit against ‘LG Killer’ Myeong-ki Song. The missed ball became a lucky hit and led to an RBI. In the third inning, he went to base with a left-handed hit from first base safely and completed a multi-hit in two at-bats.카지노
If you add a little bit of exaggeration, Oh Ji-hwan is serving as the starting shortstop to the point where he has to be nervous. Kim Min-seong is serving as shortstop in place of Oh Ji-hwan before Jamsil Samsung on the 7th, and he performed more than expected in both offense and defense. His fielding range is incomparable to Oh Ji-Hwan’s, but his smooth batting ability is still the same at shortstop. His blows are even more amazing. Including the game on the 20th, there are 5 multi-hits.
Looking at Kim Min-seong, who is playing every day without a chance to rest, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop laughed, saying, “I must have been exhausted right now.” After Oh Ji-hwan returns, he intends to give Kim Min-seong a break for the time being. Oh Ji-hwan will join the first team in Daejeon on the 22nd at the earliest after playing against Doosan in Icheon in the Futures League on the 21st.
