‘Long at bat+5G batting average of 0.350’ The batting machine is ‘clicking’ again…’greasing’ is done.

The ‘oiling’ is over. It’s back to running smoothly. It’s bottomed out, and it’s going up again. This is the story of LG’s “hitting machine” Kim Hyun-soo (35).

Through 21 games, Kim is batting .308 with one home run, 21 RBIs, 17 runs scored, a .383 on-base percentage, a .398 slugging percentage, and a .781 OPS. He has a .395 on-base percentage with runners in scoring position.

Despite his lack of home runs and other long balls, his numbers look very much like Hyun-Soo Kim. However, there is a slight difference. April and May are very different.안전놀이터

April was the month of “crazy hitting. In 23 games, he batted .400 with one home run, 17 RBIs, 14 runs scored, a .485 slugging percentage, a .538 on-base percentage, and a 1.023 OPS.

Now, through 21 games in May, he’s batting .170 with four doubles, three RBIs, a .211 on-base percentage, a .189 slugging percentage, and a .400 OPS. His on-base percentage has dropped from .400 to .308. His slugging percentage with runners in scoring position dropped from 0.581 in April to 0.176 in May.

However, May needs to be viewed in context. There were eight games from the 2nd to the 13th and five games from the 17th to the 21st. In the first eight games, he went just 2-for-33 with a .061 batting average. His OPS was 0.147.

After hitting a single to left in his third at-bat of the fifth inning against the Changwon NC on May 2, he suffered the humiliation of going 32 consecutive at-bats without a hit until the Samsung Electronics game on May 13. My back became a problem. I couldn’t use my heart properly. That’s why his record was not good.

On the 17th, he broke the streak at home against KT. His first two at-bats were a fly ball and a strikeout. It was 34 consecutive at-bats without a hit. In the fourth inning, he broke the streak with a single to center. In the sixth inning, he completed his multi-hit game with a single to left-center.

This was the starting point. On the 18th, he had one hit and one run against KT at home, and in the three-game series against Hanwha at home on the 19th-21st, he had one hit, one RBI, one walk, one hit, two walks, one RBI, and one run.

It’s a five-game hitting streak. In total, he’s 7-for-20 with a .350 batting average and an .809 OPS. It’s safe to say that he’s hit rock bottom.

On April 21, he hit a game-winning double against Hanwha. It had been 22 days since he hit a double against the KIA on April 29 in Jamsil. This is almost as good as the multi-hit game.

After breaking out of a 34 at-bat hitless slump, Kim Hyun-soo said, “I need to train a lot, but my back is not good, so I couldn’t train. It seems like my slump has been long. I have to endure the pain and train,” he said, adding, “I will try harder to get back on track.” He joined the professional ranks in 2006.

He joined the professional baseball team in 2006. He is a sophisticated hitter with a career batting average of .316 in 16 seasons in the KBO. He ranks eighth all-time in batting average (over 3000 at-bats). Fourth among active players.

He had a roughly 10-day slump, but that’s because he’s Kim Hyun-soo. He’s back on track. There’s a good chance he’ll get even better. They don’t call him a “hitting machine” for nothing. LG is also gaining momentum.
