Lee Ho-yeon (28, kt Wiz), an infielder who announced the start of the wizard corps. He saved the team from facing the 15th humiliation in KBO league history.
Lee Ho-yeon started as the 8th hitter and second baseman against the Doosan Bears in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Suwon kt Wiz Park on the 20th. On this day, Lee Ho-yeon made his debut as a kt player. After leaving his home team Lotte Giants on the 19th and transferring by trade, he immediately joined the first team and started playing.
Before the game, kt coach Kang-Cheol Lee expressed his anticipation for Ho-Yeon Lee. “They said that the batting average was 40% in the Futures League. I hope they will bomb here as well,” he said. He said he liked it since he was little.”
Lee Ho-yeon has strength in batting. His performance in the Futures League this season proved this. He appeared in 18 Futures League games and batted 0.433 (29-for-67), 3 home runs, 17 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.187, which was the best batting average, slugging percentage, and on-base percentage in both leagues. In the last 10 games, the batting average was 0.457 (16 hits in 35 bats), and the batting pace was not bad.
Lee Ho-yeon entered the first plate with high expectations. After 2 deaths at the end of the 2nd inning, he withdrew with a floating ball in center field against opponent 1 starter Raul Alcantara. After one out in the bottom of the fifth, he grounded to third base.
Lee Ho-yeon’s batting talent came out in the last at-bat. KT was overwhelmed by Alcantara’s pitch. In the bottom of the 1st inning, after 2 players went on base due to a walk, not a single runner could step on 1st base except for a catch error by opposing shortstop Park Gye-beom in the bottom of the 4th inning. In particular, until after one out in the bottom of the 8th inning on this day, not a single player was able to get a hit and went through a slump.
If Alcantara handles the remaining 5 out counts, he almost fell victim to the 15th no-hit no-run in KBO League history (formerly Samsung Lions Deck Maguire on April 21, 2019). The no-hit, no-run is to catch all outcounts in the game and block the opponent with no hits and no points. It’s an honorable record for a pitcher, but it’s like humiliation for the opponent’s batting line. It was a time when hits were needed to avoid falling victim to the record.카지노사이트
It was Lee Ho-yeon who appeared at that point. He hit a 132 km/h forkball on the second pitch and made a heavy hit, making the team’s first hit that day. Although the team lost 0-6, Lee Ho-yeon’s hit saved the mood.
Meanwhile, Lee Ho-yeon made his presence known to the home fans by hitting his first hit after transferring with this hit. In particular, it was a debut game worthy of making his name known to kt fans in that he opened the water with his first hit in the team’s batting line, which was blocked throughout the game.
