Guillermo Heredia (32), a foreign hitter who makes the atmosphere of the SSG Landers clubhouse cheerful, played a role as an atmosphere maker in other lines.
Heredia started as the 4th batter left fielder in the home game against KT Wiz of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 3rd, and played 2 hits and 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats, including a 3-run home run in the reverse final, to improve the team’s performance. led to a 5-3 victory. SSG, who escaped from two consecutive losses, kept second place with 16 wins and 10 losses. KT stayed in 9th place with 8 wins, 2 draws and 15 losses.
SSG was going through a batting slump. Existing 4th hitter Han Yu-seom and geopo prospect Eui-san Jeon had a low monthly batting average of 10% last month, and players such as Choo Shin-soo and Park Seong-han, who were based on precise hitting and on-base, were in jagged conditions. On the 2nd, there were not a few players who voluntarily stayed on the ground for batting practice even after the game was over. On the 3rd, some players started batting training earlier than usual.
SSG was very happy to see Heredia’s performance. From the match against KT in Suwon on the 20th of last month to this day, Heredia started as the 4th hitter in 12 consecutive games and swung a hard hit. During this period, he recorded a batting average of 0.362, an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.809, one home run, and 14 RBIs. “It was a recruitment that did not put a lot of weight on long hits in the first place, and it is an activity that fully lives up to the eye level of SSG coach Kim Won-hyung, who praised him as a player with excellent contact and on-base ability.”
Even if the range is expanded to the entire season, it has long since exceeded coach Kim’s standards. Heredia, who played 107 at-bats before the game, already received a passing score with a batting average (0.357) in the mid-to-late 30% range and an OPS (0.896) close to 90%. Coach Kim said, “The criterion for a foreign hitter to think, ‘This is how you have adapted to the KBO league’ is around 100 at-bats.” .
On this day,온라인카지노 Heredia shined at the most important moment. At the end of the 7th inning, trailing 1-3, 2 out 1st and 2nd base, KT relief pitcher Son Dong-hyun’s forkball in the middle was not missed and passed over the left wall. It was a home run that turned the game around at once. At the end of the 8th inning, SSG tipped the pendulum for victory even more with Kim Min-sik’s 1 RBI double.
It is a more valuable victory by overturning the game that has been dragged all the way. SSG only scored 1 run in 5 innings for KT starting pitcher So-Jun Sohn, who returned from a forearm muscle injury that day. Ace Kim Gwang-hyun, who struggled with 2 runs in 5 innings (1 earned run) and was in danger of losing due to no support from the other line, was able to laugh at the late game due to the explosion of the other line.
