Among the words that refer to players who are not good at hitting, there is a ‘game progress agent’. It means that it reduces the game time because it is not good.
It is obviously an uncomfortable nickname for others to hear.메이저놀이터
At the beginning of the season, the KT Wiz showed a concentrated attack on batters 1 to 4.
In the 10 games played up to the 15th, KT’s No. 1 Kim Min-hyuk had a batting average of 30.68 (14 hits in 38 at-bats), No. 2 Kang Baek-ho had a batting average of 40.9 li (18 hits in 44 at-bats), and No. 3 Anthony Alford had a batting average of 40.00. 1 penny 5 li (17 hits in 41 bats) Park Byeong-ho recorded a batting average of 30% (12 hits in 40 bats). The batting average of these four players is 30.4 (61 hits in 163 at-bats). Accounted for 58% of the team’s total hits. The batting average of the rest of the batters was only .208 (44 hits in 212 at-bats).
KT’s RBIs are also concentrated on batters 1-4. Looking at the RBI rankings within the KT team until the 15th, Park Byung-ho (10 points), Kang Baek-ho (9 points), Alford (7 points), Kim Min-hyeok, Hwang Jae-gyun, and Kim Sang-soo (5 points). Batters 1-4 scored a total of 31 RBIs. Since the rest of the hitters scored 24 RBIs, it can be seen that the score depended heavily on batters 1 to 4.
As a result, the chances of winning increased when batters 1 to 4 hit well, and the chances of losing increased on days when they didn’t hit well. In other words, the batters numbered 5 through 9 were ‘game progress agents’.
However, the match against Suwon Hanwha Eagles on the 16th was different. Not only the 1st to 4th batters, but also the 5th to 9th hitters exploded, and the score exploded.
The total number of points scored by KT that day was 14, of which 11 RBIs came out, of which Kim Min-hyeok (1 hit in 3 at-bats, 1 point), Baek-ho Kang (no hit in 3 at-bats, 1 point), Alford (2 hits in 3 at-bats, 3 points), Byung-ho Park (1 hit in 2 at-bats, 2 points) 1 RBI) and 4 others only scored 2 RBIs. The rest was solved in lower order.
No. 5 Jang Seong-woo went 3 at-bats, 2 hits and 2 RBIs, No. 6 Kim Joon-tae went 4 at-bats, 1 hit and 1 RBI, No. 8 Ryu Hyun-in went 4 at-bats, 1 hit and 1 RBI, and No. 9 Kim Sang-soo went 3 at-bats, 2 hits and 3 RBIs. made 7 runs. In addition, Lee Sang-ho (2 at bats, 1 hit, 1 RBI) and Kang Hyeon-woo (1 at bat, 1 hit, 1 RBI), who entered as substitutes, also posted 1 RBI each.
In a way, it is natural that the team’s chances of winning increase when the bottom line hits badly.
In a situation where the power has weakened as injured players come out one after another, KT, who desperately needs a rebound in the bottom line, hopes that the explosion on the 16th will be the starting point.
