1st in on-base percentage, 1st in hits, 2nd in runs scored… Out-of-the-field batting champion. Standing tall as a treasure of LG
- on Apr 15, 2023
Off-field batting king’ is finally exploding in the hall.
LG Twins Moon Seong-joo has secured his place by occupying the top ranks in the batting division from the beginning.
On the 14th, against the Jamsil Doosan Bears, Moon Seong-joo started as right fielder and scored 1 hit, 1 walk and 2 runs in 5 at-bats, 4 at bats, leading the team to a 13-4 victory.
Moon Sung-joo, who continued his 8-game hitting streak with an infield hit by shortstop in the bottom of the 3rd inning, is also continuing to go on base in all 12 games this season.
He had no hits only against Kiwoom Heroes on the 5th, and hit all the other 11 games.
Moon Seong-joo, who started off as a pinch hitter in the game against KT Wiz on the 1st, the opening game, has continued to start and show off a good hitting feeling.
Through his 14th, he is batting 3.9 1 Lee (18-for-46) with 4 RBI and 10 runs scored. He is fourth in batting average, tied for first in hits, and tied for second in runs scored.
In particular, he ranks first overall with an on-base percentage of .491. He is a powerful table setter along with Hong Chang-ki, who is in third place with an on-base percentage of 4.7 and 4.
Even at the beginning of the season, Moon Seong-ju seemed to have no place. Since Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, and Austin Dean were given four positions, including outfielder and designated hitter, Sung-joo Moon was the backup.
But he quickly became a regular. The injury of Lee Jae-won, who was trying to start as the starting first baseman, became an opportunity for Moon Seong-joo.
Moon Seong-joo was on the bench in the opening match against KT Wiz on the 1st and played as a pinch hitter, but started playing from the 2nd match. Since Moon Seong-joo has a good sense of hitting, manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop of LG sent Austin as the first baseman to give Moon Seong-joo a spot. Since then, LG has exploded regardless of the top and bottom batting lines, and is running in second place, one game behind SSG Landers (8 wins and 2 losses) with 8 wins and 4 losses.
Moon Seong-joo played an active role as a backup at the beginning of the season last year as well, and then played well as a substitute player to secure a starting position. Since he did not play at the beginning of the season, he could not fill the required at-bats, but in August, he was also chosen as the opponent of Lee Jung-hoo as the ‘out-of-the-field batting king’. His performance declined due to physical deterioration at the end of the season, and he did not even fill the required number of at-bats.
This season, he has been the main player with his own skills from the beginning, and is running at the top, such as being ranked first in several batting categories.메이저사이트 It’s still early, but we can look at the title. How will Moon Seong-ju finish this season? His solid blows are gradually building trust.
