Samsung Lions ‘163 cm little giant’ outfielder Kim Seong-yoon (24)’s second half is unusual.
Kim Seong-yoon, who joined Samsung in the 39th place in the 2nd 4th round in 2017, only played 110 games until last year. Even last season, when he played the most games, he was not a player who showed off his presence with 8 hits, 2 RBIs and 14 points in 48 games.
But this season is different. Kim Seong-yoon, who played 52 games in the first half alone, is putting vitality into Samsung by playing mainly as a major runner and great defense. Although he played most of the game as a substitute, he recorded 15 hits, 7 RBI, 11 points and 6 stolen bases.
And then the second half began. Kim Seong-yoon is a new force in the Samsung outfield. After 7 games in the second half, he is very active with a batting average of 0.500, 9 hits (1 home run), 5 RBIs and 3 runs scored.먹튀검증
In particular, on the 28th and 29th, in the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes game, the three letters of the name Kim Seong-yoon were properly announced to fans. In the game on the 28th, although he was not the main character in the final with a 5-5 draw, he scored a valuable RBI that gave the team a lead in the top of the 12th inning. At that time, Kim Seong-yoon played an active role with 3 hits, 1 RBI and 1 run in 6 at-bats.
In the game on the 29th, he also shone. He was very active with 3 hits and 3 RBI in 5 at-bats. Samsung recorded 7 points that day, so Kim Seong-yoon was responsible for nearly half. The hitting course was also diverse, including center, left, and left-middle. Samsung went on a winning streak with a 7-2 win.
Kim Seong-yoon got three hits in two consecutive games for the first time since his professional debut. He is blowing a new wind by seizing the opportunity given by Samsung coach Park Jin-man. Thanks to this, Jose Pirella and Koo Ja-wook relieved the burden of defense and alternately appear as designated hitters. His attack power doubled.
After the game, Kim Seong-yoon said in an interview with the host broadcaster, “I always go in to achieve the goal I set at bat with confidence.”
Regarding the 8th inning, 2 RBIs and 3 bases, “Before I went to bat, hitting coach Tachibana said something good, and coach Young-seop Bae also talked about fastballs. I prepared not to leave late, so good results came out.”
Kim Seong-yoon was a hitter with a career batting average of only 0.173 until last season. He is blowing a new wind into the Samsung outfield, foreshadowing a great performance in the second half.
