He bridged the gap between the home run king and a genius hitter. It would not be wrong to say that it is no longer LG’s treasure, but Korean baseball’s treasure.
The Korean baseball team, led by coach Ryu Joong-il, won a cold game in the 8th inning with a score of 10-0 against Hong Kong in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games baseball group B group stage held at the first baseball stadium of Shaoxing Baseball-Softball Center in Shaoxing, Zhejiang, China on the 1st.온라인바카라
Korea’s starting lineup includes starting pitcher Won Tae-in, Kim Hye-seong (second baseman), Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder), Noh Si-hwan (third baseman), Kang Baek-ho (designated hitter), Moon Bo-kyung (first baseman), Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder), Park Seong-han (shortstop) – It was a batting lineup consisting of Kim Hyeong-jun (catcher) and Kim Seong-yoon (left fielder).
Moon Bo-kyung’s name stands out as he is included in the main batting lineup along with Noh Si-hwan, who is currently ranked first in home runs in the KBO league, and Kang Baek-ho, nicknamed the ‘genius hitter.’
Moon Bo-kyung is a player who plays as the starting third baseman for LG. Moon Bo-kyung, who completely established himself as LG’s starting third baseman last year with a batting average of .315, 9 home runs, 56 RBI, and 7 stolen bases in 126 games, appeared in 126 games this year as well and maintained his batting average. 304 with 10 home runs, 71 RBIs, and 9 stolen bases, he was proudly named to the national team for the Asian Games.
The national team’s coaching staff, including coach Ryu Joong-il, could not ignore Moon Bo-kyung, who boasts a hot batting ability. He even declared early on that Moon Bo-kyung would be used as the central batting line-up. Coach Ryu Joong-il said at Gocheok Sky Dome, where the national team’s official training took place last month, that “the main batting lineup will be Noh Si-hwan, Kang Baek-ho, and Moon Bo-kyung.”
The national team played an evaluation match against Sangmu at Gocheok Dome last month. It was the national team’s only practice game. The national team won the game 2-0. The person who hit the winning shot was none other than Moon Bo-kyung.
It was his first time playing for the adult national team, but he couldn’t be seen looking nervous. Before leaving Hangzhou, Moon Bo-kyung said, “I am training as usual. I will do my best in the given situation,” and added, “I will always be confident and try not to be intimidated.”
Moon Bo-kyung’s hot hitting continues in Hangzhou. Bo-Kyung Moon hit the first, winning hit against Hong Kong and proved why he has no choice but to be included in the main batting lineup. Bottom of 1st inning, 2 outs, 1st and 2nd bases. Earlier, Kang Baek-ho struck out on a missed swing, leaving 2 outs, but Moon Bo-kyung paid no heed and hit a timely hit to the right. Second base runner Choi Ji-hoon scored, giving Korea the first point. It was a pleasant start. On this day, Moon Bo-kyung recorded 1 hit, 2 walks, 2 RBI, and 1 run in 2 at-bats.
Surprisingly, Moon Bo-kyung has no record of playing as a first baseman in the league this year. Of course, he often played as a first baseman in the past, but this year he only played as a third baseman in the league, and he was a player who was increasingly moving away from first base. The national team’s coaching staff came up with a clever plan: appointing Noh Si-hwan as a built-in third baseman while sending Moon Bo-kyung out as first baseman even though Kang Baek-ho could be used at first base. It was such a waste to let his bat rot on the bench. There was great concern in the national team that Lee Jeong-hoo was out of action due to an ankle injury, leaving a huge gap in the central batting lineup, but Moon Bo-kyung is emerging as a savior.
