‘I finally missed the KBO record’ Lotte 23-year-old top prospect candid confession “Thinking about the record…”
“It took a little effort.”
Koh Seung-min (23), who is considered one of Lotte’s top-class prospects, was unable to face the record. In the match against KT in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 13th, Koh Seung-min started as the right fielder as the 7th hitter, and played an active part with 3 hits, 1 RBI, and 2 points in 4 at-bats.
In the beginning of the 2nd inning, Koh Seung-min scored a heavy hit in a timely manner with a chance for 1 company, 2nd and 3rd base, and left an RBI that gave the team a lead. Starting with Go Seung-min’s timely hit, Lotte scored 4 points in only the second attack and took a 4-0 lead, succeeding in overcoming the baseline early.
Here, Ko Seung-min even played a role in driving a wedge into the game. Koh Seung-min, who came out as the lead batter in the top of the 4th inning and hit a superior triple, scored on a sacrifice fly by Yoo Kang-nam to right field. It was the moment when Lotte took a 5-0 lead.
Ko Seung-min’s hard-hitting streak continued in the 6th episode. Ko Seung-min, who came out as the lead batter, hit a double into the right outfield. He had a three-hit game for the first time since his resignation against LG on the 13th of last month.
It was the 8th inning. Ko Seung-min was given the opportunity to write a great record. That is, he left only one home run in ‘Hit For The Cycle’. Previously, single, double, and triple were all written. All that was left was a home run.
However, in the end, the great record did not come true. Koh Seung-min suffered a loss as the first baseman grounded out. Lotte won 5-0, and Koh Seung-min had no more chances to step into the plate.
Ko Seung-min was honest. After the 토스카지노 game, Koh Seung-min said, “It was a pity that I seemed to have a little bit of energy thinking about the record in the last at-bat.” Usually, players use the phrase “I wasn’t conscious of the record” as a custom (?), but Koh Seung-min honestly expressed his feelings.
Still, it was a game with clear gains. His season batting average also rose from .228 to .250 as he had a three-hit game in a long time. It provided an opportunity to get out of his sluggishness. “Recently, I didn’t fit too well, so I tried to hit with the idea of maximizing my strength and hitting the ball, but it led to good results,” said Koh Seung-min, “I will try to raise the feeling of hitting again.”
