LG’s ‘last puzzle’ Kim Hyun-soo finally laughed.
In the home game against KT held in Jamsil on the 17th, Kim Hyun-soo played as the designated hitter 3 times and recorded multiple hits.
Kim Hyun-soo, the center hitter of the twin corps, was experiencing the worst slump this season. Kim Hyun-soo, who played a big role in April with a batting average of 40%, suffered an extreme slump with no hits in 32 consecutive at-bats, starting with no hits in 4 at-bats in the Daegu Samsung game on the 13th. His batting average in May was just 6 punters.
Kim Hyun-soo contributed to the team’s 7-3 victory with 2 hits and 1 RBI in 5 at-bats that day. In the 1st and 3rd innings, he withdrew with a hit, but at the end of the 4th inning, when LG was leading 5-2, KT starter Schulser attacked the second pitch and made it a heavy hit.
In the 6th inning, an RBI was added. He hit a left-handed hit from 1st and 2nd base, widening the lead by 4 points.
Kim Hyun-soo, who must have suffered a lot in the meantime, smiled brightly after the game, saying, “I am satisfied that the team won. I will work hard to show the fans a good performance so that I can return to normal. Thank you to the fans who came to support me.”
On the mound, Lim Chan-gyu laughed.
Lim Chan-kyu started the season with a long relief after being pushed out of competition with Kang Hyo-jong and Lee Min-ho. While Lee Min-ho left due to an elbow injury and Kang Hyo-jong suffered a slump, Lim Chan-gyu had a chance to start.
Lim Chan-gyu,토토사이트 who made his first start against Doosan on the 16th of last month, raised expectations by digesting 3.1 innings. Afterwards, he pitched five or more innings in all three games. Against Kiwoom on the 11th, he pitched 6 scoreless innings and earned his second win.
Lim Chan-gyu pitched 8 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 2 runs in 5 innings that day. He threw 84 pitches, the most this season, and presented a pitch that was hardly called a ‘provisional starter’. Lim Chan-gyu came off the mound with a 5-2 lead, and the team was able to collect three wins by holding the lead to the end.
Starting pitcher Kim Yun-sik faltered by giving up 5 runs in 3 innings against KT the day before. If Kim Yun-sik continues to perform sluggishly, Lim Chan-gyu is emerging as a strong third starting alternative.
Lim Chan-kyu is proving his qualifications for the 3rd starter by showing his excellent crisis management ability and the appearance of an inning eater. Jamsil = Reporter Moonyoung Choi /2023.05.18/
