Doosan’s Park Jun-young hit his first home run since joining the club.
Park started at third base on the ninth inning against Kiwoom at Jamsil Stadium and went 3-for-3 with a home run, one walk, and three RBIs. After hitting a double, triple, and home run, Park’s cycling hit was thwarted by a missing second base.
He led off the second inning with a single to left. In the fourth inning, with runners on first and second, he doubled down the left field line. The score went from 2-0 to 4-0.
In the sixth inning, hit a solo home run over the left field fence off Kiwoom bullpen pitcher Young Min Ha. His first home run of the season. He made a funny scene in the dugout with the “indifference ceremony” while his teammates were intentionally ignoring him.
Walked with one out in the seventh inning. He was unable to add a second base hit, and his cycling hit was canceled out. After the game, Park Jun-young said, “The cycling hit is not a big disappointment. I’m proud to have contributed to the team’s winning streak.” To the Doosan fans, he said, “I hope we can win the remaining three games of the first half and make it 11 in a row.” The following is a one-on-one interview.
-Is the cycling hit disappointing?
Honestly, I didn’t think about it much. I’m just happy that I was able to help the team get on a winning streak.
-Did you know you had two outs in your last at-bat?
I knew, but my brothers and coaches kept telling me beforehand. Going into the at-bat, I wasn’t thinking about that at all, I was just thinking about getting a hit. 메이저토토사이트
-(Last at-bat) I didn’t hit the ball, I picked it off.
If I had hit that pitch, I would have broken my bat. It was too deep.
-How was the no-hitter ceremony?
I’ve always thought that if I hit a home run, that’s what my brothers would do. I was trying to make it as casual and fun as possible.
-How was the home run hit?
As soon as I hit it, it was too high and it didn’t feel right. I thought it was an out, but I kept seeing the fielder go backwards, so I thought I might get away with it.
