Choi Jeong (SSG Landers) fired a signal of a rebound.

Choi Jeong-eun did not have a good hitting feeling in the beginning of this season. In the opening game against the KIA Tigers, he started silently, going 0-for-3. He recorded his first multi-hit of the season against the Hanwha Eagles on the 7th, raising his batting average to 0.250, but his hitting feeling did not improve after that.

When the KT Wiz match ended on the 19th, Choi Jeong-eun was sluggish with 12 hits, 1 home run, 8 RBIs, 8 runs, 6 walks, 14 strikeouts, and a batting average of 0.218 OPS of 0.636. Even during SSG’s 4-game losing streak, he was 2-for-14 and not strong enough.

However, Choi Jeong-eun showed a different side in the match against KT on the 20th. He started as third baseman, hitting third and contributing to the team’s breakout streak by going 3-for-5 with 3 RBI, 1 run and 1 strikeout.

The beginning of Choi Jung was not good. In the first at-bat in the top of the first inning, in a 2B2S situation, he struck out looking for Wes Benjamin’s 148km/h four-seam fastball. In the second at-bat in the top of the 4th inning, he withdrew with a fly ball to right field.

However, from the third at bat, Choi Jeong’s bat spewed fire. In the top of the 5th inning, with 1 runner on 2nd and 3rd base, he hit Benjamin’s first pitch and scored 2 RBIs on time. Then, in the 7th inning, against Kim Young-Hyun, with a safe first base situation, he hit a 1-run double that split the right middle, bringing the victory to SSG. In the last at-bat in the top of the ninth inning, he sent a ball to a place similar to the second at-bat, and this time it was a hit. Choi Jung-eun made a three-hit game by going to second base with an aggressive run.

Thanks to Choi Jeong-ui’s 3 hits and 3 RBIs, SSG ended their losing streak. After the match, Choi Jeong-eun said, “Today was a bit of a tough game. It’s always hard to break a losing streak. It wasn’t an easy game.” It feels good to be able to help,” he said.

Choi Jeong-eun thought that there were more ground balls than high balls this season. He is working on improving this problem, but he believes it is still lacking. He said, “It seems that there have been a few more tangball hits this season. Even if it hits well, the trajectory seems to be low. So I practice giving the ball a lot of spin.” I still don’t like it. I’m still working on it.”메이저사이트

SSG has been active for the first time in a while and escaped from a 4-game losing streak. Choi Jeong-eun said, “During the losing streak, all the players were a little bad. Especially the batters were bad. The atmosphere was bad, but we talked a lot to make it fun without showing off. “The atmosphere was heavy, but there was a bit of room because of the influence of last season’s championship. The players seem to be doing well with confidence. If you try to do well individually, it becomes a team play. I’m working hard.”

[SSG Choi Jeong-i is delighted after hitting a timely hit with 1 company, 2.3 bases and 2 RBIs in the beginning of the 5th inning of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ match between SSG Landers and KT Wiz held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the afternoon of the 20th.
