On the mound, Kim Jae-yeol, who took the mound as the second pitcher, had a good pitching with 2 runs in 4 innings, and on the other line, there were three players who made multi-hits. Socrates Brito, Park Chan-ho, and Kim Do-young contributed greatly to the team’s victory with two hits.

Kim Do-young, who set the table with Choi Won-joon, recorded 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 1 run in 5 at-bats. In the beginning of the 8th inning, he succeeded in stealing the base after a surprise bunt from 1 out, and stepped home when Choi Hyung-woo hit left-handed at 2 out 2 base. In the beginning of the ninth inning, he solidified his winning streak with two RBIs and doubles that hit the right wall directly from the 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases. Half of the six points the team picked were points that Kim Do-young was involved in.

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk also praised Kim Do-young, saying, “It was good to see the team connect with points whenever needed, from Hyung-woo Choi’s valuable final RBI and Choi Won-joon’s additional RBI, followed by Kim Do-young’s wedge RBI.”

After the game, Kim Do-young said, “I think I recovered while resting. There were times when I wasn’t right, but I’m satisfied with reducing the period. Through last year’s experience, I was able to get out of the slump quickly while thinking a little.” I came, but I missed it, so I was grinding my teeth behind the scenes. However, it seems that the decisive moment came just in time and resolved it.”

Regarding the surprise bunt scene, “I saw something like a flow. I caught a hit that hit well, and it didn’t hit at bat, so I thought about it, but I got the feeling that the third baseman was a little behind, so I tried (surprise bunt) right away.” I looked back.

Kim Do-young, who joined the KIA as the first player last year, played in 103 games in the first year of his debut, scoring 53 hits in 224 at-bats with a batting average of 0.237, 3 homers, 19 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.674. He had hopes, such as receiving more than 100 games as a rookie, but he was not satisfied with both himself and the team.

Kim Do-young said, “I should have done it last year because I was a rookie, but I think I fell deeply into it because I was just thinking about doing well. Now, I don’t care about the annual leave, and I think good results come out by continuing to take the good parts of the second half of last year.”

In this season, ‘injury’ got in the way from the beginning. Kim Do-young was diagnosed with a fracture of the left metatarsal bone in the process of playing the opening two games against SSG Landers on April 1-2, and was away for more than two months. Kim Do-young, who quickly raised his sense of actual combat, has been batting hard with 17 hits in 46 at-bats, a batting average of 0.370, 2 home runs, 6 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.970 in 10 games after his return, but he still feels that he lacks a lot.

Kim Do-young said, “You shouldn’t be greedy. If you get greedy, you can’t care about the process.” I think I thought that way today because you said it.”

At the same time, the player Kim Do-young mentioned was Choi Hyeong-woo. Kim Do-young said, “(Choi) Hyung-woo said in an interview, ‘Nothing will change even if Do-young comes,’ and I think he understood his mind. I think he did it because he didn’t want to burden him. I thought that it would be okay to take it off,” he said with a smile.

Not only coach Kim Jong-guk, but the entire team have been waiting for Kim Do-young’s return to revitalize the infield. Kim Do-young, who wants to live up to expectations, said, “To be honest, I always thought of going up when I go back with (Na) Seong-beom and the team becomes a complete group.” promised to perform.
