Kim Hye-sung (24), the main infielder of the Kiwoom Heroes, was substituted on the 8th of this month during a game against the Lotte Giants in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul after being hit by a foul ball and feeling intense pain. Ki was worried because he usually played without being substituted.
It was unclear if she would be able to play on the 9th. But Kim was determined to play. Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki suggested resting her, but Kim insisted on playing. However, after checking her leg again, she was switched from second base to designated hitter.
He has always been a responsible player, but now his responsibilities will be even greater. Lee Jung-hoo, the “genius hitter,” was out with an injury, and the team was on a nine-game losing streak, tied for the longest in the franchise. If they had lost the ninth game, it would have been their 10th straight loss and they would have fallen to the bottom of the table as ninth-placed Samsung won just before the end of the game.
Kim Hye-sung, who battled back, went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored. She battled back from a broken leg to help her team win 10-8. Her bases-loaded single in the third inning proved to be the game-winning hit. The win snapped a nine-game losing streak and kept Kiwoom out of the bottom of the standings.
Kim’s last three-hit game was against the Samsung Lions in Gochuk on the 28th of last month. It was her first three-hit game in August. She maintained her high batting average of 0.345 in August and raised her season batting average to 0.319, which puts her in the top five in the league.먹튀검증
Kim has played in 102 of the team’s 103 games this season, batting .319 with 129 hits, five home runs, 39 RBI, 76 runs scored and 21 stolen bases. She has played the most games of any player on the team, and ranks first in the league in hits and runs scored and third in stolen bases. He is irreplaceable.
“It’s hard to break a losing streak,” Kim Hye-sung told the host broadcasters after the game. It was a tough game until the end.” “My legs are fine. I’m healthy. I can play tomorrow. I’m not sick enough to be left out,” he said, showing responsibility. “I think I’m just sleeping well, eating good food cooked by my mum, and replenishing my stamina,” he said.
