Lee Jung-hoo (24), the core of the Kiwoom Heroes attack, is finding his place. The bat turns fiercely in July as well.
Last winter, Lee Jung-hoo modified his batting form. Ahead of the challenge in the Major League (MLB), changes were made for quick response to the ball and concise swing.
However, Lee Jung-hoo suffered from serious blow hunting throughout the month of April. He appeared in 22 games, and he had a batting average of 0.218, 3 homers, 13 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.678. Last year, Lee Jung-hoo, who won the MVP by winning 5 batting crowns (batting average, hits, RBIs, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage), did not show the dignity of Lee.메이저사이트
In the end, Lee Jung-hoo chose to return to batting form, and showed signs of revival in May. He appeared in 26 games and he had a batting average of 0.305 OPS and 0.784. Starting from May 27th, Lee Jeong-hoo raised the pace by making multi-hits in 4 consecutive games.
Last month, Lee Jung-hoo announced the return of a batting genius. In 24 games last month, he had a batting average of 0.374, 2 home runs and 14 RBIs. OPS broke through 1.0 at 1.046.
Here, Lee Jung-hoo succeeded in entering the 30% for the first time in his season and maintained a high-sensitivity hitting feeling, recording an accurate batting average of 0.300 on the last day of June. Recognized for his performance, Lee Jung-hoo was even nominated for the KBO League Monthly MVP in June.
In July, the water rose properly. On the 1st, against the SSG Landers in Gocheok, Lee Jung-hoo announced a fresh start by performing a batting show with 4 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats, and scored 3 hits in the home game against the NC Dinos on the 5th.
Lee Jung-hoo, who showed a good flow, hit 40% (4 hits in 10 at-bats) in 3 consecutive matches against the Doosan Bears last weekend, and recorded the highest batting average of this season, 0.315, ahead of the last 3 consecutive matches in the first half. Moreover, as of the 11th, he vomited up the spirit of becoming tied for second place (100 hits) in the hit category.
Lee Jung-hoo is about to end the first half with his hitting feeling perfectly restored. His second half is also a positive sign that we can expect his batting condition to improve. It is a valuable income for Kiwoom, who is fighting a bloody middle-ranking battle. Naturally, the gaze is focused on Lee Jung-hoo’s second half.
