Hwang Sung-bin, a tough opponent for pitchers

Lotte Giants outfielder Hwang Sung-bin (27).

He’s a tough opponent for pitchers. At the plate, he exudes survival instincts, whether he’s hitting or bunting, and when he advances, he’s all over the place with his motions. He fulfills the fate of a hitter who needs to scratch the pitcher to survive, but depending on how you look at it, he can be infuriating and considered a “hawkish” player.

Yang Hyeon-jong (36-KIA Tigers), a ‘big pitcher’ who has been through the wringer, was not immune to nerves.

On the 26th against Lotte. With the score tied 0-0 in the top of the fifth inning, Hwang Sung-bin came to the plate with the bases loaded and no outs. Hwang expressed his joy by pumping his right fist. 카지노사이트 Yang Hyun-jong was the next batter to face Ko Seung-min.

But Hwang’s survival instincts kicked in.

With the lead, Hwang began twitching his right leg as if to warn Yang, who was staring at him. As Yang Hyun-jong stared back at first base, ready to throw the third pitch in the 1B1S, Hwang’s “leg dance” continued. Yang stared straight ahead, seemingly uncomfortable, and didn’t move, until catcher Kim Tae-goon called time and took the mound. Hwang Sung-bin was thrown out at second base on Go Seung-min’s grounder to shortstop to end the inning. Yang Hyeon-jong gave up the tying run in the top of the sixth inning, but KIA rallied to win the game 2-1 thanks to Choi Hyung-woo’s tying run in the bottom of the sixth and Socrates Brito’s game-winning hit in the bottom of the eighth.

Speaking to the media after the game, Yang Hyun-jong said of the fifth inning, “It was a momentary ritual and it bothered me a little bit, but Hwang Sung-bin is the type of player who harasses the pitcher. It’s just his job,” he said, adding, “Being a human being, it’s bound to show a little bit on my face, but I tried to stay as calm as I could.” “It was the same last year and the year before, but if you talk to Lotte players, they say that Hwang thinks it’s his job,” he said, adding, “If you think negatively, it’s endless. It’s his trademark. I have to prepare myself to be as unflappable as possible,” he emphasized.

Commentator Lee Dae-hyung, who appeared on the TV broadcast, said, “When a runner moves his legs like that, it means he’s not running. 메이저사이트 If you’re really running, you don’t move like that,” Lee said. Hwang Sung-bin left a strong impression in the first match of the season, but how will Yang Hyun-jong respond in the next match?
