Samsung Lions captain Oh Jae-il (37)’s bat exploded. He is interested in whether he will be able to escape from his slump.
On the 13th, Jae-il Oh started as the first baseman, batting 5, against SSG Landers held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu. On this day, he recorded 2 hits, 1 home run and 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats, including the final hit. Samsung won 11-9 against SSG amid Oh Jae-il’s performance, who boasted a long-awaited hot blow, and escaped from a 6-game losing streak.
Oh Jae-il’s bat exploded three times. A 5-3 lead. Samsung took a chance to first base safely with Lee Won-seok’s walk. At this time, Oh Jae-il’s two-run gun exploded. Oh Jae-il pushed opponent pitcher Park Jong-hoon’s 127km fastball over the left wall.
And at the most important moment, Oh Jae-il’s bat danced. In the 8th inning, with 2 outs and 1st base, with a score of 9-9, Oh Jae-il pulled opponent pitcher Choi Min-joon’s 139 km cut fastball and hit a 1 RBI double that fell in the middle right.

It is Oh Jae-il who has shaken off the sluggishness with a home run and a final hit. At the beginning of the season, the batting pace did not rise. He should have centered the batting line, but he couldn’t. Amid Oh Jae-il’s silence, the entire Samsung lineup failed to rebound.
Oh Jae-il fell into extreme sluggishness with a batting average of 0.172 (5 hits in 29 bats) and a slugging percentage of 0.207 in the preceding 9 games. Manager Park Jin-man put Oh Jae-il in the lower batting order to ease the burden, but it did not have much effect. Coach Park said, “Both the individual and the team are not performing well. As captain, I feel a sense of responsibility.” Oh Jae-il passed through a long sluggish tunnel. He showed off his presence by hitting a home run.
After the game, Oh Jae-il said,카지노사이트 “I felt that the feeling of hitting improved from a few days ago. I think that a good hitting ball will give me confidence. I think.” He smiled brightly.
In fact, Oh Jae-il had a bad pace at the beginning of the season. He has made the jump to a starter and has been since 2016. Until last season, his batting average was 0.253 in April, but he gradually raised the pace, hitting 0.276 in May, 0.302 in June, 0.301 in July and August, and 0.313 after September. He is, in effect, a ‘slow starter’.
He has laid the foundation for a rebound. Oh Jae-il also buffered his confidence. Now, the key is to keep a good flow with the players.
