Yang Eui-ji (Doosan), the number one FA conglomerate, had a comeback match with Doosan. He appeared as a pinch hitter and hit a missed ball, but it was blocked by KIA center fielder Kim Ho-ryeong’s lake rain.
Yang Eui-ji returned home after completing the WBC schedule on the 14th. After taking a break, he joined the Doosan team in Gwangju on the 18th along with his juniors Cheolwon Jeong and Bin Bin Kwak. Coach Lee Seung-yeop predicted that it would not be easy to put Yang Eui-ji ahead of the Gwangju KIA match on the 18th and 19th. He made remarks that put rest in mind rather than actual combat.
However, at the end of the briefing on the 19th, coach Lee said, “I can see the situation and let him go as a pinch hitter.” It was as it was said. Kwak Bin went out as a starting pitcher in one of the two consecutive matches against Hanwha on the 23rd and 24th, and Jeong Cheol-won has yet to be caught. However, Yang Eui-ji, who is not in bad condition, was decided to put in the actual battle.메이저사이트
In the beginning of the 7th inning, with KIA leading 4-1, the situation with 2 companies on 1st and 2nd base. The flow leaned toward KIA, but when Yang Eui-ji fired a shot here, the direction was unknown. On the mound was Eui-ri Lee, the next-generation ace of KIA who worked with the WBC. Yang Eui-ji attacked 4 balls in the ball count 2B1S.
The high-flying ball flew vaguely. He missed the ball, and it flew slightly toward left-center, but it was difficult for the shortstop to catch. Then center fielder Kim Ho-ryeong jumped forward like lightning. He was conscious of a long hit and stepped back a bit, but with his unique fast ball judgment and speed, he quickly caught the point of the falling ball, stretched out his arm, and held out his glove.
As expected, the ball came into Kim Ho-ryeong’s glove, and 5,000 fans gathered at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju were enthusiastic. It was not a good hit for Yang Eui-ji, but he missed the opportunity to produce a lucky hit, and KIA let fans know that the ‘Horyeong Zone’ is still alive this season.
For Kim Ho-ryung, batting is key this season as well. On this day, including 1 hit in 4 at-bats, 5 hits in 20 at-bats in this demonstration game, a batting average of 0.250, 1 RBI, 2 runs and 1 steal. 6 hits in 20 at-bats, 0.300 batting average, 3 RBIs, 3 runs, 2 steals in 5 games during the spring camp practice game.
In KIA, it is difficult for Na Seong-beom to participate in demonstration games for the time being due to calf pain. Therefore, at this point, outfield backup agents such as Kim Ho-ryeong and Lee Woo-seong can seize many opportunities. When Na Seong-beom returns and Choi Won-joon returns in June, the outfield is expected to be full. Until then, Kim Ho-ryeong should appeal to coach Kim Jong-guk as much as possible.
