Yoon Dong-hee, the spearhead of the offense, was all smiles.

The Lotte Giants of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) have finally rebounded. Leadoff hitter Yoon Dong-hee, 21, the spearhead of the offense, was all smiles.

Yoon hit a grand slam with one out in the seventh inning against the Doosan Bears at Sajik Stadium in Busan, South Korea, trailing 0-2. It was her first grand slam of the season and her first career home run.

In the top of the seventh inning, Lee Hak-joo singled to right, pinch-hitter Yoo Kang-nam walked, and Choi Hang-hang singled to left to load the bases. With the bases loaded in the first inning, Lee Jeong-hoon’s bases-loaded walk ruined the chance. Yoon Dong-hee, who hadn’t been hitting well, stepped up to the plate.

But that’s when Yoon’s star power came into play.

He faced Choi Ji-kang, who was serving as Doosan’s closer, and with two strikes and three pitches, he lifted a 148-kilometer pitch that curved exquisitely down the body and over the left field wall. The score was 4-2, and the Sajik Stadium was ablaze with excitement.
However, they gave up another run in the top of the eighth inning and fell behind 4-6, but tied the game again at 6-6 in the bottom of the eighth, 토토사이트 and eventually won the game with a pinch-hit RBI single by Lee Joo-chan in the 10th inning of extra innings.Before this game, Yoon was batting just 2-for-39 (1-for-9) with two doubles, seven RBIs and a .619 OPS. His bat just wasn’t clicking. Manager Kim Tae-hyung raised expectations by saying, “There’s no need to worry,” as he watched Yoon Dong-hee’s training posture after his arrival, and declared him a permanent starter. By entrusting him with the leadoff and center field positions, he hoped that Yoon would take the initiative and play a central role in the team.

However, at the plate, Yoon’s timing was late and he was unable to produce quality at-bats. This was something that worried and frustrated him. “My pace hasn’t been good lately, so I was personally worried. I felt like I had to play well for the team to win. I was also worried because I felt like I was to blame for our team’s poor performance, but I feel like I made a contribution today, so I feel good,” he smiled.

“I’m proud that I was able to hit it again at a crucial moment, and I think it will help the team if I hit it again in this situation, so I’m personally happy about it,” she added.

In fact, Yoon went 0-for-13 with the bases loaded last year.

In 18 at-bats, he had nine hits, including three walks and two sacrifice flies, but he was never able to become a “bases-loaded solution”. However, in 19 at-bats and 14 at-bats with the bases loaded this year, he got his first hit, a walk-off home run.

He had a close call with a walk-off home run. On June 3 last year, he hit a huge foul ball off Jang Hyun-sik with the bases loaded and the score tied 5-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning against Sasik KIA. The pitch was headed to the same left field line as his home run, but the ball sailed just outside the foul pole, leaving him with no chance of a game-winning home run. In the end, Yoon struck out. Noh Jin-hyuk came in to close out the game and Lotte won 6-5.

“After I received the cheers, I thought to myself and remembered last year. I was really disappointed last year, but this year, I think I did what I couldn’t do last year, so I looked back and thought, ‘I’ve improved a bit more than last year,'” she said encouragingly.

Last year,

He was called up to the first team out of the blue and played full-time without much preparation, but this year he has been playing full-time since the start of the season. He’s also taking on the pressure of playing center field and batting first. “The physical aspect is something I have to deal with,” he said, adding, “It’s my first full-time role and I’m batting first, so I knew I had to do better. Today, I was able to put it down a little bit and it paid off. I think I’ll have to keep that mindset going forward,” he laughed.

After a sluggish start to the season, the team picked up its first back-to-back wins and first winless series of the season. It was dramatic, too. He vowed to set the tone for the team as leadoff. “It was disappointing because not only me, 파워볼실시간 but all the guys really gave it their all and didn’t give up until the end. “It was the last game of the week, but there’s always a first after the last,” he said, adding, “We prepared well and it paid off. I think it will be important to carry this momentum into the first match next week and I think it will be good for us.”
