Wouldn’t KIA be full just by looking at Kim Do-young?

KIA is doing surprisingly well in the 9-game series in the metropolitan area. They have already won 4 wins (2 losses) in a series of meetings between LG and SSG in the ‘2nd round’ and KT, which has the 1st place win rate in June. It beat Hanwha and returned to 8th place, and if it plays well in the remaining two games, it can also bring down 6th and 7th place Kiwoom and KT.아톰카지노

Basically, the aspect that the front creates a good atmosphere is big. With the simultaneous replacement of two foreign pitchers in the Kim Tae-gun trade, an atmosphere was formed to try something. Manager Kim Jong-guk and the coaching staff have been working hard, and the players are also working hard.

On the ground, along with Kim Tae-goon’s effect, Kim Do-young’s performance as an airlifter definitely stands out. The efficiency of the triple setter from No. 9 Park Chan-ho to No. 1 Choi Won-jun to No. 2 Kim Do-young is good. When Park Chan-ho and Choi Won-joon set the table, Kim Do-young solves the problem, and even if only one of Park Chan-ho and Choi Won-joon goes to the base table, Kim Do-young plays the role of a link between the center batting lines.

His athletic ability and talent make him know why he is called the second Lee Jong-beom. He’s quick on his feet, has clutch power, and even has one-hit power. He makes mistakes on defense, but also makes a lot of flashy plays. While recovering from instep surgery, he succeeded in bulking up his upper body with the help of Na Seong-beom, and his hitting has the effect of bringing the hitting point a little further forward by lowering the arm holding the bat to the chest. Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom) tried a similar change and failed, but Kim Do-young is fine so far.

In 12 games, 21 hits in 54 at-bats, batting average 0.389, 2 home runs, 7 RBIs, 10 runs scored, 6 stolen bases, on-base percentage, 0.400, slugging percentage, 0.574 OPS, 0.974, scoring strike percentage, 0.333. Although the sample is small, it is a jaw-dropping result. After Kim Do-young joined, the KIA top batting line definitely gained strength.

On the 7th, against Suwon KT, Kim Do-young also shone. With no runners out in the eighth inning, he made a bunt hit to third base. Actually, he didn’t bunt very well. It didn’t completely kill his speed. However, he solved this with his unique athletic ability. He was safe with an explosive run. The defense was not smooth, but Kim Do-young’s main power was more explosive.

Afterwards, Kim Do-young overcame the crisis of the checker in Na Seong-beom’s at-bat and succeeded in stealing second base. Because he is confident in his main power, he appears to have gone half a step to second base more than others. In the end, Choi Hyung-woo’s one-shot raised the finish line. A scene where the advantage of being able to reach the scoring position on its own even with just one single hit combined with the clutch ability of the center hitter. It is a feature that KIA should enjoy for a long time in the future. And in the 9th inning, with 2 out, 1st and 3rd basemen, he finished the game himself with a 2 RBI double hitting the right wall neatly.

There is still little practice. With the Incheon SSG match on the 4th canceled, he explained that taking two days off from the 3rd in a row helped him manage his physical strength. It means that his game stamina has not improved yet, but there is a possibility that he will gain more strength from the second half after going through the All-Star break.

KIA can make full use of Kim Do-young’s athletic ability and sense, and KIA fans can enjoy it. The variable is also how to overcome when the performance cycle declines. When it’s good, it looks infinitely good, but Kim Do-young is also a human being, so there will always be a time when the feeling of hitting is low. At that time, if he overcomes well, he will prove his qualifications as a full-time starter. The change in the hitting mechanic must be watched until then to discuss success or failure.
