Kiwoom Heroes rookie catcher Kim Dong-heon (19) recorded his first three hits since his debut. Thanks to Kim Dong-heon’s performance, Kiwoom defeated the Doosan Bears 7-3 and escaped from a three-game losing streak.
Kim Dong-heon started as the ninth batter catcher in the match against Doosan held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 18th. On this day, he also worked with the league’s leading ace and starting pitcher An Woo-jin as a battery.
Ahn Woo-jin-Kim Dong-heon’s battery allowed a total of 2 runs in 6 innings. In particular, the process of giving up one run in the first inning was regrettable. After the game, Kim Dong-heon looked back on this situation and said, “Before today’s game, (Ahn) Woo-jin and I made a plan for the batter in advance, and we decided on the seating position and course in advance.” I played with the ball, but I was hit by LOHAS. It’s a conclusion theory, but I think the batter hit well.”토토사이트
However, Kiwoom won as a result by blocking it with two runs. Kim Dong-heon said, “If there are a lot of fouls, it is very difficult from the point of view of ball mixing. In such a situation, he seems to be fortunate to have blocked it with the least number of runs,” he added.
On this day, he pulled out his first personal three hits. Kim Dong-heon said, “Before the game, batting coach Oh Yun told me a lot of good things. He tried to hit hard from practice, but I got a hit and it feels good,” he said with a smile.
In particular, at the end of the 8th inning, with 1 out and 1 base, he went to bat and scored a left-handed hit against Doosan Ko Bong-jae. With this hit, the flow came to Kiwoom, Lee Jung-hoo and Kim Tae-jin hit consecutive hits, and Kim Hye-seong hit a sacrifice fly to complete a big inning.
Kim Dong-heon said, “Before entering the at-bat at the end of the 8th inning, (Lee) Jung-hoo asked me to go forward a little, so I did as I did, and the best hit came out today.” Thanks to his big success on this day, Kim Dong-heon’s batting average rose slightly to 0.255.
