“Here’s the swing we’ve been seeing.” Lee Jung-hoo, the head coach, who was delighted with his two-hit performance, said, “Everything is green light.”


San Francisco Giants’ Lee Jung-hoo (26) hit a hit in two consecutive games, setting the stage for a rebound.

Lee Jung-hoo started the 2024 Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals game at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, on the 9th (Korea time) and scored two hits and one run in three at-bats.

As the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the first inning, Lee Jung-hoo garnered two strikes against Washington’s right-handed starter Trevor Williams, but he fouled out to make one ball and two strikes, and pushed an 80.5-mile (129.6 kilometers) changeup to the left field to get a hit. Afterwards, he advanced to the third base thanks to Ramonte Wade Jr. and took advantage of left fielder Jesse Winker’s bad pitch to hit the ball slightly missing, and dug into his home to score the first run. This is his fourth run of this season.

As the leadoff hitter in the third inning when San Francisco allowed its team to come from behind 1-3, Lee again pushed Williams’ 5th pitch, 88.9 miles (143.1 kilometers) outside four-seam. Left fielder Winker threw himself to catch Lee’s ball, but the ball came out of his glove and Lee made a double by going to second base. Wade Jr. later advanced to third base, but Jorge Soler was caught with a fly ball to the second base, which did not lead to a score.

Lee walked while watching Williams’ fifth pitch with one out in the fifth inning, when San Francisco was losing 1-6. However, he wasted the opportunity when Flores hit a 5-4-3 double play. Entering his fourth batter’s box with two outs in the seventh inning, Lee had a close game with right-handed relief pitcher Derek Law leading up to the full count, but was caught grounder to the second base after touching 87.9 miles (141.5 kilometers) slider with six pitches.

In defense in the top of the eighth inning, Lee showed off his strong shoulders. With one out and a runner on first base, Trae Lynscombe had a short hit, and first baseman Idemaro Vargas tried to advance to third base. Lee caught Vargas as a bodhisattva at third base, successfully making his first Bodhisattva debut.

Lee Jung-hoo, who signed a six-year, 113 million-dollar contract with San Francisco this season, had seven hits and one home run in his first six games since his debut. However, he had only one hit in the four games since then, and suffered a brief slump. However, he had a hit from his first at-bat on Saturday, escaping from no hit in three consecutive games, and strengthening his pace by posting two consecutive hits in the game. He has a batting average of 238 percent in 11 games (10 hits from 42 times at bat), four homers, four RBIs, four runs scored and an OPS of .639. 핑크알바

In an interview before the game, San Francisco Giants manager Bob Melvin said, “Lee Jung-hoo can swing, pick out pitches, and create contacts anywhere. However, the area in which he usually produces good pitches is inside the strike zone. Currently, he is hitting ground balls and needs some adjustments, but I don’t think that will affect him much.”
