“Socrates’ sense of hitting is getting better and better.”
SPOTV commentator Oh Jae-won, who was in charge of commenting on the LG-KIA game in Jamsil on the 28th and 30th, said this every time Socrates Brito (KIA) entered the plate. In fact, Socrates significantly improved his sense of hitting with 5 hits in 12 at-bats, 1 home run and 4 RBIs in the 3 consecutive matches. Looking back on the last 10 games, he has a batting average of 0.306 with 1 home run and 8 RBIs.
It was indirectly proven in the game on the 30th that Socrates’ sense of hitting was completely revived. It was relatively quiet until the middle of the day. However, in the 8th inning with no runners and a ball count of 2S, LG sidearm Jung Woo-young’s slider floated lightly without effort, creating a double on the right. It entered the body, but the timing was not too late.
In the end, at the beginning of the 9th inning, when he was leading 9-8, LG finisher Woo-seok Koh’s low-falling 144km fastball was lifted and a decisive three-run four was pulled out. Commissioner Oh Jae-won said that it would be better for LG to send Ko Woo-seok an intentional ball and face Lee Chang-jin given that Ko Woo-seok is already multi-inning and Socrates has a good hitting feel. As soon as these words were spoken, a shot from Socrates came out.
In fact, Socrates failed to handle Austin Dean’s batted ball with 2 bases loaded in the bottom of the 6th inning, leading 4-3. It wasn’t an easy hit. He quickly moved to the middle right, hit the glove and threw himself, but the ball grazed the glove and fell to the ground. It was the moment when LG overturned the game.
Austin produced a good hitting ball, but Socrates could have been left with regret. He made up for that disappointment perfectly in the 8th and 9th innings, leading the team to 5 consecutive victories. As Socrates revived, the KIA centerline was also hit harder.카지노사이트
Socrates said, “Until now, the sense of hitting was a bit stagnant, but through this three-game series, I regained a lot of confidence. I think the team played well too. (During the home run at bat) I went to bat with the idea that I should bring in a runner on third base, and I tried to send the ball to the outfield as much as possible, which led to good results. Since my opponent is a pitcher who throws a fastball well, I swing with the fastball in mind. In order to keep a good feeling going forward, I will always go into the at-bat with the number of goals. If I wait for the ball I want and hit it instead of just hitting it as the pitcher throws it, I will be able to keep making good hits.”
Now is the promised month of May. Last year, Socrates had a batting average of 0.227 in April, but in May he hit hard with a batting average of 0.415, raising his batting average to 0.325. Afterwards, he went down slowly, and suffered an unexpected injury after being hit by Kim Gwang-hyeon (SSG)’s pitch, but it was thanks to the promotion in May that he was able to be reborn as a filial foreign hitter.
Unfortunately, he was sluggish throughout April this year, but finished his last 3 consecutive matches well and was ready to run in May. Even this season it is already 0.278. It is also in a state of adaptation to the KBO league. KIA is excited again. Socrates started to burst.
