“Why don’t you throw straight?” senior Jung Hoon kicked Han Dong-hee in the butt after the junior made a one-bound throw to first base despite a good catch.
When Han Dong-hee, who had a great game in the first inning that drew applause from starter Staley, made a one-base throw with plenty of time to spare in the fourth inning, first baseman Jung Hoon scolded the junior.
Third baseman Han Dong-hee, who was running toward the first base dugout, waved and made an apologetic gesture toward first baseman Jeong Hoon, who neatly prevented the situation that could have led to a throwing error, but the senior’s retribution was waiting.
The first game of a three-game weekend series between the Lotte Giants and KIA Tigers at Sajik Stadium on Feb. 2. In the top of the first inning, KIA’s Socrates hit a 134-kilometer slider from Lotte starter Stratley. The ball sailed high into the infield.
The ball sailed high in the infield. The ball caught the wind and sailed into the third-base bleachers. At the moment it was expected to be a foul ball, Lotte third baseman Han Dong-hee didn’t pay attention to the fence.
When she reached the fence, she grabbed it with her right hand, jumped up, and caught a Socratic pitch in her glove that would have been a foul. With Han at third base, Lakeview starter Streeley finished the first inning without allowing a run.
Unlike Streeley, who started the first inning with a no-hitter, the most difficult for a starting pitcher, Kia’s Yang Hyun-jong fell victim to Lotte’s “momentum. After giving up nine runs in the second inning, including a grand slam by Lee Hak-joo, Yang was pulled early, while Strillie pitched comfortably with plenty of run support.
Han Dong-hee, who hasn’t been hitting well lately and was dropped from the starting lineup, was moved to the bottom of the order. After drawing a walk in her first at-bat, she performed a “win” ceremony in her second at-bat, hitting a single against KIA’s Yang Hyun-jong in the second inning. It was a moment that broke the ice.
Lotte’s defense in the 4th inning with a 9-0 lead. In the second inning, KIA’s Lee Woo-sung pulled a hard grounder toward third baseman Han Dong-hee, who quickly judged the pitch with a “pop” and stretched out his glove in a dash.
After making a smooth, accurate catch on a tricky pitch, Han took a step and threw to first baseman Jung Hoon. The batter, Lee Woo-sung, didn’t have the quickest feet, so he had plenty of room. The ball left the third baseman’s fingertips and was one-bound in front of the first baseman.
In a situation where he could have fallen backwards, veteran first baseman Jeong Hoon stretched out his legs, lowered his stance, and caught the ball in the mitt.메이저사이트
As Han Dong-hee approached the dugout with a shrug, Jung-hoon kicked the junior on the butt to wake him up. The senior’s whip didn’t stop Han Dong-hee from smiling and demonstrating Lotte’s recent momentum.
In addition to her focused defense, third baseman Han Dong-hee was on fire at the plate. She went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBIs, two runs scored, and one walk. It was her first three-hit game of the season, signaling a resurgence.
