KIA Tigers transfer student Byun Woo-hyuk (23) wrote multi-hits for three days in a row. At this rate, he is poised to take over first base.
Byun Woo-hyuk scored another two hits in the 2023 exhibition game against the LG Twins held at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 20th. The result was 4 at-bats, 3 at-bats, 2 hits, 1 RBI and 1 walk. He also included a valuable timely hit to lead his team to a 3-1 victory.
In the bottom of the first inning, with 2nd out and 3rd base, he struck a timely hit against LG rookie Park Myung-geun, which fell to the side of the shortstop. Oh Ji-hwan could not catch a strong batted ball. The third base runner was called in. In the 3rd inning, he had a right-handed hit with 2nd out and 1st base.
He recorded 2 hits each in 3 games at home in Gwangju. He had two heavy hits against Doosan on the 18th, a double and a two-run home run against Doosan on the 19th, and recorded two singles on this day as well.
Byun Woo-hyeok also raised his batting average in the demonstration game to .429. He holds the highest batting average on the team, beating Kim Do-young (. 417). Expectations for him are also rising greatly due to his performance in exhibition games. 토토사이트
In addition, he ignited the competition for the position by mainly playing as a first baseman. He is showing a sense of stability more and more even in the first baseman’s rain.
Relatively, the starting first baseman Hwang Dae-in is only 105 pun9. Even in an exhibition game in which pitchers do not throw 100% of the pitch, there is no choice but to give a chance to a player with superior performance.
Manager Kim Jong-guk praised the team before the game, saying, “As expected, he is showing good condition at batting. The first base defense is also better than expected. He is confident and well prepared.”
