“I have a star quality” Jun PO wedge gun → PO reverse gun → finish → reverse full gun… ‘Dormant Volcano’ baseball player 2, finally burst
“I think I have a star quality.”
Kiwoom Heroes Lim Ji-yeol’s face was bright during the interview.
In the third game of the weekend series against the Lotte Giants held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 28th, Lim Ji-yeol hit a come-from-behind home run in the bottom of the 8th inning, leading the team to a 7-5 score.
His blows, which had regained his lost sense, made a gear nose job. Until the 8th inning the previous day, Kiwoom was struggling without a score for 27 consecutive innings, but broke the chain by scoring 5 runs at the end of the 9th inning. Although frustrated in front of a 6-5 reversal, the dormant volcano pouring out smoke is bound to erupt.
It was also a difficult match today. Starter Jeong Chan-heon collapsed by giving up 5 runs in 4⅔innings, and only scored 1 run each in the 3rd and 7th innings. Despite many on-base runs, it rarely led to a score. A pitcher check error, a third baseman error, and a left fielder error shook the mound.
However, in the 8th inning when the score was 2-5, Russell Lim Byung-wook and Lee Won-seok scored three consecutive hits against veteran Kim Sang-soo, who was reborn as Lotte Pilseung-jo, and made the bases safe. Kim Dong-heon’s sacrifice fly made it 3-5, and Kim Hui-jip’s hit made the bases full again.
Then, in the third game of the playoffs against the LG Twins, he appeared as a pinch hitter at the bottom of the 7th inning, with 2 out and 1 base, when he was trailing 3 to 4, and LG Lee Jeong-yong’s first fastball was connected as a reverse two-run four. He was also honored with the Daily MVP in Game 3.
Although he lost in the Korean Series, he hit a two-run home run in the top of the third inning against SSG Landers Ace Font in Game 6 of the Korean Series. A player who had only one home run in his career hit three home runs in a single postseason. Kiwoom, who missed winning the Korean Series, had a gift left in regret.
He’s getting a lot of chances this year. Last year, 148 at-bats in 40 games was a career high, but this year, he has already hit 69 at-bats in 23 games.
Lim Ji-yeol, who was interviewed after the match, smiled humbly, saying, “The team was on a losing streak, so I focused on winning. I just did what I could. It feels good to help the team win.” It was different from the way he jumped and hugged his teammates with a burning heart right after a home run. Regarding his father, he said, “When he did well, he said he did well, and when he didn’t do well, he doesn’t talk about baseball as much as possible. I’m always grateful.”
Then, regarding his strong side in the match, he laughed at the audience with the answer, “I didn’t think of that, but (after hearing it) I seem to have a star quality.” Regarding director Hong Won-ki Kiwoom, he said, “He is always quiet. He just stroked it.”안전놀이터
“The moment I hit, I thought the minimum fence would be right. Because I kept losing, the atmosphere in the dugout was not good, but I hope my home run will give my teammates a chance to rebound with more strength.”
