Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo’s amazing on-base percentage ‘0.532’… Evolving LG’s ‘Window’
The most different part in the lineup of the professional baseball LG Twins this year is the second batting order.
Moon Seong-joo hit number 2메이저사이트, and Park Hae-min, who frequently hit number 2 last year, went down in the batting order. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop considered Moon Seong-joo’s punching power first rather than Park Hae-min’s ability to carry out operations.
As of the 12th, after 10 games of the season, manager Yeom, who had 7 batting order in operation, only hired Moon Seong-joo for the second time.
That’s why Moon Sung-joo’s current batting sense is so good, and coach Yeom’s trust is strong.
In 2021, the momentum of the table setter Jin formed by Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo,’The King of On-Law’, is scary at the beginning of the season.
The two took the lead in the team’s reversal victory in the visiting game against the Lotte Giants, which ended at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 12th.
In the top of the 7th inning, which was trailing 3-4, lead Hong Chang-ki walked out, and Moon Seong-joo hit a double in mid-month to tie the score at 4-4.
Moon Seong-joo stepped home on Austin Dean’s sacrifice fly and scored 5-4, a come-from-behind score.
The performance of the duo Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo shined even more in the top of the ninth inning, when the mound gave up three points and overturned the score to 5-7.
In a situation where there was no runner in the first company, Hong Chang-ki opened the way for a reversal with a triple that split the middle right.
Moon Seong-joo immediately backed up with a timely hit, and LG caught up 6-7.
Kim Hyun-soo’s two-run home run, which immediately changed the flow to 8-7, broke out, and LG won 12-8 by adding 4 points with Seo Kun-chang’s 3 RBI double and Song Chan-eui’s wedge.
Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo opened the way to score properly, befitting the modifier ‘attack spearhead’.
Hong Chang-ki, who entered the pro in 2021 and had the best year, got out of last year’s slump and found his place this year.
Moon Seong-ju, who hit a batting average of 0.303 last year, 5 years after his professional debut, and emerged as a permanent candidate for the highly competitive LG outfield, is gaining momentum and boasts a more advanced batting this year.
Moon Seong-joo beats left and right pitchers with a short and fast swing.
Hong Chang-ki has a batting average of 0.353, and Moon Seong-joo has a higher batting average of 0.432.
When you look at the on-base percentage of 0.532 side by side, your mouth opens wide. With an on-base percentage of just over 40% being evaluated as great, the two go out to the base table at least once out of two at-bats to set a table.
In other words, LG-centered hitters are getting a lot of RBI production opportunities.
Thanks to the two, LG’s score also went up. LG’s average score per game is 5.8 points, more than twice that of Kiwoom Heroes (2.56 points) and Samsung Lions (2.78 points), which are struggling with the slump in other lines.
As they can see the ball well and feel good at hitting, Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo’s slugging rates are also rising.
Hong Chang-ki scored 0.500, and Moon Seong-ju, who said he gave up his long-shot desire, also posted 0.486.
Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo also run hard when they go to the ground in accordance with coach Yeom’s active baseball game. Hong Chang-ki has 5 stolen bases and Moon Seong-joo has 2.
Although the number of failed base steals is quite high, they make up for it with a significantly higher batting average, slugging percentage, and on-base percentage, so there is nothing to point out as weaknesses of Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo so far.
