After the game, Seongbin decided to have a meal with his brother…”
Min-seok Kim (19), a large rookie at Lotte, felt the high wall of a pro in the process of his team’s winning streak. Through the last 27 days, his batting average was down to 1/6 and 3 li. Kim Min-seok blamed himself, saying, “I think I’ve become a defensive player.” And he tried to overcome his slump while being with his ‘soul mate’ Hwang Seong-bin (26) and received advice.
Kim Min-seok played the role of a solver once again at the most important moment and when the team was needed. On the 28th, Kim Min-seok, who started as center fielder No. 9 in the Sajik Kiwoom match, hit Kiwoom starter Choi Won-tae at the end of the 2nd inning with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases when he was leading 1-0, and pulled out a double hit at the right time. Even after two outs, Lotte, which continued the atmosphere by Kim크크크벳 Min-seok knocking out a shot, later scored 4 points with Ahn Kwon-soo’s 2 RBIs and timely hits. It was Kim Min-seok’s shot that raised Lotte’s concentration.
In the end, Lotte won 5-2, blocking Kiwoom’s pursuit after 4 points in the 2nd inning. Pajuk’s 7th consecutive win. Lotte’s previous seven consecutive wins were achieved from June 21 to 28, 2012. It’s been about 3956 days.
After the game, Kim Min-seok said, “The team won consecutively, but personally, it was very disappointing. . The senior also received a bat today, but it was a bit different. So I think it hit,” he laughed. However, this bat is no longer usable. It was broken in the process of hitting a second baseman grounder in the second at-bat in the 4th inning.
He had been thinking about why he hadn’t been right, but he solved it while having a meal with Seongbin Hwang and received advice. Kim Min-seok said, “(Hwang) Seongbin said that he gets very angry in front of hyung, but Seongbin hyung also said a lot of good and strong words. So, since Seongbin is the older brother, he ate meat two days ago and helped me a lot mentally.”
However, on this day, Seongbin Hwang suffered an injury that broke his left ankle while attempting to steal second base in the first inning. Upon examination, he was diagnosed with a 2nd torn ligament of the anterior anterior aspect of his left ankle. First of all, it is estimated that it will take about 4 weeks to recover.
Regarding the situation at the time, Min-seok Kim said, “The atmosphere in the dugout was chaotic. Still, I tried to focus on the game until the end.”
