Lee Chang-jin, the hero of the fourth inning of the counterattack, “Prepares by training for batting even during the game”

It was a rather quick substitution, but the game-winning hit turned the tide. KIA’s Lee Chang-jin hit a two-run double in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Lee came in as a pinch hitter on the 27th against the Gwangju LG. With runners on first and second in the bottom of the fourth inning, Byun Woo-hyuk singled to 스포츠토토 right to start KIA’s rally, and with Han Seung-taek batting with runners on first and second, KIA manager Kim Jong-kook pulled out his pinch-hit card for Lee Chang-jin.

Lee took advantage of a three-pitch fastball from pitcher Kim Yoon-sik and hit a two-run double to right-center field to bring in both runners. KIA took a 4-3 lead and later scored two more runs to win 6-3.

After the game, Lee Chang-jin said, “I hadn’t played much lately, but I tried to find my hitting touch by remembering when I was hitting well last year. During the game, I was preparing by practicing batting practice, so I didn’t feel any pressure to bat as a substitute in the early innings.”

“Coach Lee Bum-ho gave me some advice before I came up to bat, which was to get a good timing. I was able to take advantage of the opposing pitcher’s mistake and hit the ball well, which led to a good result.” He added, “I will continue to do well in future games. There were a lot of fans here today, and I’m grateful for their great support.”

With Lee’s game-winning hit, starting pitcher Yang Hyun-jong became the all-time wins leader. He now has 162 career wins.
