Kiwoom Heroes outfielder Lim Byung-wook (28), who has been in his 10th year of debut, is showing a hot blow. After being discharged, he forgot the pain of his injuries.
Kiwoom won 6-1 in the second game of the season against the 2023 KBO League KIA Tigers held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 15th.
Ariel Furado, a foreign starter, won the first game with a good pitching of 6 innings and 1 run. Lim Byung-wook contributed to the team’s victory with a valuable two-run home run that ran away one more time.
After the game, Lim Byung-wook said, “I hit it accidentally. The timing was still out of whack. I asked for time because I couldn’t get the timing with the opposing pitcher, but the pitch continued and I hit it. I didn’t know the batted ball would go that far. Also, he didn’t know he had hit a home run in a long time.”
At the bottom of the first inning, Lee Hyung-jong’s timely hit, Kim Hye-seong’s timely hit, and Park Ju-hong’s sacrifice fly led 3-0. Lim Byeong-wook hit the 4th pitch slider of KIA left-hander rookie Yoon Young-chul in the first at-bat with 2nd base and 2nd base, and hit a 2-run homer that went over the right wall.
With the ball count 2 strikes and 1 ball ahead of the 4th pitch, Yoon Young-chul’s pitching tempo slowed down, so Lim Byeong-wook asked for time. However, it became a pitch for Yoon Young-chul and Byeong-wook Lim’s time was not accepted. However, Byeong-wook Lim connected with an accurate hit and a home run was made.
It is the first home run of this season and the first home run in 1658 days since the NC game on September 30, 2018.
Lim Byung-wook said, “I thought it would be good to do my best consistently and diligently as the director appointed me. I did that, and the results came out so good,” he said.
He’s batting . 36 in eight games this season. 1 home run, 5 RBIs. In September of last year, right before he was discharged from the military, he suffered a hand injury and even had surgery, but he prepared diligently from the camp, and the results are coming out.
“The goal set before the camp was ‘diligence’. He faithfully continues on. Lim Byung-wook, who said, “I am just doing it silently,” said, “I am still satisfied with the camp and now. The result is to keep the belief that ‘I’m going in the right direction’. I think that makes me feel more comfortable.” 메이저사이트
He added, “Actually, getting injured is hard for everyone. I need to find the sensitivity again. You have to put in constant effort. As I continued to fill that part with a sense of stability, it seems that the thought of injury gradually disappeared.”
