Lee Woo-seong (29) of the KIA Tigers, who looked for opportunities by going back and forth between selection and substitution. Now, I am used to starting sorties.
This season, both corner outfields of KIA have been reorganized. Right fielder Na Seong-beom left due to injury, and Lee Woo-seong is filling the void. Ko Jong-wook and Lee Chang-jin are competing for the left fielder position, but recently Ko Jong-wook has shown a high sensitivity and has increased the frequency of starting appearances.
The most eye-catching thing these days is Lee Woo-sung’s performance. He played in 20 games this season and has a batting average of 0.357토토사이트, 2 homers, 5 RBIs, 2 stolen bases, an OPS of 0.943, and a strong hit.
In April, Lee Woo-sung mainly played as a substitute. Nevertheless, he recorded a batting average of 0.292 OPS 0.792, showing off a good sense of hitting. Lee Woo-sung did not miss the opportunity that came in May. It was against the Lotte Giants on the 3rd that the firepower exploded. He showed his best performance of the season, going 3-for-3 with 1 home run, 1 RBI, 1 walk and wielding a fire bat.
Starting with the match against Lotte, Lee Woo-sung continued to make his name in the starting lineup. He started five consecutive games and produced a hit in every game.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk, who met ahead of the match against Doosan in Jamsil on the 12th, said, “(Lee) Woo-seong, (Lee) Chang-jin, (Lee) Jong-wook play their roles very well in the outfield, and (Na) Seong-beom is filling the missing spot. Now, Wooseong is playing his role better than last year,” he praised.
What is the secret to the uptrend? Coach Kim said, “I have accumulated real-life experience by consistently going to games, hitting hits, and playing base runs.”
Regarding Lee Woo-sung’s batting direction, manager Kim said, “Rather than one shot, I’m hoping for an average and an on-base rate like now.
Lee Woo-sung will challenge Doosan in Jamsil on the 13th to hit for 6 consecutive games. His opponent, starting pitcher Choi Seung-yong, will face off for the first time in his career.
