Kim Hyun-soo’s bat, which had been silent after the first at-bat walk, produced the result in the second half of the game. At the end of the 8th inning, where the game was tight 3-3, with the ball count at 3-1 with 1 out and 2nd base, he pulled the slider of opposing reliever Moon Seong-hyun and hit a 2-run homer (season 4) that went over the right fence.

Kim Hyun-soo, whom I met after the game, smiled at the home run gun. He said, “I was waiting for a mistake to come, but it seems that it came because the count was crowded. Also, I knew that Sung-hyun Moon was aggressive, so I thought he would not give up walks easily. So I think he was not driven.”

Thanks to Kim Hyun-soo’s final shot on the day, LG is not giving up the lead easily with a record of 59 wins, 2 draws and 35 losses (0.628 win rate) this season. The difference between SSG Landers (53 wins, 1 draw and 41 losses/win rate of 0.564) in second place widened to ‘6’. With 48 games left in the regular season, the chances of winning are growing.

When asked about the possibility of winning, Kim Hyun-soo said, “The coach said, ‘It’s still a crisis.’ Let’s see and go, and let’s hope (victory) will follow.’ I don’t need to see anyone. The players think so.

He added, “I want to win the unified championship the most, but (opportunity) has to come. As I said before, I will only watch one game a day.”

This season, Kim Hyun-soo is recording a batting average of 0.290 (97 hits in 335 bats), 4 homers, 57 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.745 in 88 games. Until this day, he had recently hit multi-hits in three consecutive games, and in the game that day, he hit the final four, proving his sense of hitting.

However, the season as a whole has not been consistently successful. Last May, the monthly batting average was 0.148 (12 hits in 81 at-bats), and last month, the monthly batting average was 0.259 (15 hits in 58 at-bats).

Kim Hyun-soo said, “It seems that there are bad years. Players have to overcome it, so I try to practice a lot. And then, I think it will be solved someday. I have come this far, but I hope it will work out even now.” , It seems to have improved. Thinking of the hip turn and shifting of the center of gravity, it has improved.”

Lastly, Kim Hyun-soo left a message to the team, saying, “As the coach said, every game is a place to win. I don’t think it’s time for difficult things to come. It would be nice if there were many players who could compete in the game.
