The main character who broke the balance of the game, which was tight 2-2, is KIA Tigers second-year infielder Kim Do-young (19).

In an away game against kt wiz held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 7th, Kim Do-young opened the door with a surprise bunt infield hit in the top of the 8th inning with no runners.

Kim Do-young, who we met after the game, explained the situation at the time, saying, “I got a good hit in the previous at-bat, and I felt like I didn’t want to hit it at bat, so I was preparing (a surprise bunt). I tried it because the third baseman seemed to be a little behind.”

Kim Do-young, who settled on first base with his quick feet and baseball sense, immediately began to scratch the nerves of the kt battery.

He strode toward second base, and after being ruled out for a check ball, he even shot himself out by video review.

Not shrinking from this, he succeeded in stealing second base, and after two outs, Choi Hyung-woo’s timely hit hit home and became the protagonist of the final score.

Kim Do-young, who has already managed to steal 6 bases in 12 games after returning to the first team, advances towards his goal of “stealing one base a day”.

In fact, on the KIA bench, he signed Kim Do-young’s ‘Don’t run’.

This is because the kt catcher was sitting sideways to throw to second base, and the second hitter Kim Do-young’s on-base led to a cleanup trio opportunity.

Kim Do-young confessed, “In fact, coach Jae-young Cho (Juru) gave me a signal not to run, but I didn’t see it and ran excitedly. I was slightly scolded.”

As a result, it is pointed out that even if the goal is successfully stolen, the mistake of missing the sign during the game should not be repeated.

Kim Do-young, who returned to the first team only on the 23rd of last month after suffering a serious injury at the beginning of the season, immediately became the hottest hitter in the KIA.

His performance in 12 games was a batting average of 0.389, 2 homers, 7 RBIs, 6 stolen bases and 10 runs scored, showing off his appearance as a successor to Lee Jong-beom, who is literally ‘hota-junjok’.

Kim Do-young, who continued his 10-game hitting streak after returning to the game that day, said, “There was a time when I didn’t get hit for a while, but I’m satisfied with reducing that period. It’s thanks to the memory of last year.”

The ‘time that wasn’t right’ that Kim Do-young said was last week’s Kiwoom Heroes and LG Twins match.

At this time, Kim Do-young had hits in 5 consecutive games, except for one game in which a non-game was declared, but he hit only one a day and only had a weekly batting average of 0.227 (5 hits in 22 at-bats).

Even when he’s not feeling well, he produces at least one hit,

Having a hitting technique that can send batted balls to all corners of the field is also an advantage in managing a slump.메이저토토사이트

Kim Do-young, who is good at ‘push’, took the lead in a 6-2 victory by producing 2 RBIs and 2 bases with a direct hit to the fence with a 9th inning push on the same day when he had 2 hits in 5 at-bats.

He said, “I’ve been confident since I was in high school to push and hit the original decision,” and “so I’m confident in the outside ball. However, I haven’t set a clear zone yet, so I want to supplement that part.”

Until Kim Do-young returned, KIA struggled with frustrating offensive power.

Treating Kim Do-young, who has not even secured a starting position, as a ‘savior’ who will save the team is burdensome for him, who is still young.

It was Choi Hyeong-woo, the best member of the team, who helped Kim Do-young’s heart melt.

Choi Hyung-woo said in an interview ahead of Kim Do-young’s return, “Do-young was not the main player last season, but a backup. Even if he returns, there will be no big difference from the current situation.”

Kim Do-young said, “I felt comfortable after the interview with senior Hyung-woo. Even if I was puzzled at first, I think I know how seniors don’t want to burden me.”
