“I’m sorry for Alcantara” Yang
Eui-ji of the Doosan Bears was selected as the catcher and the third hitter in the 6th home match between the teams in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League KIA Tigers held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 14th. He played an active role with 1 hit in 5 at-bats (1 home run), 2 RBIs and 1 run.
Yang Eui-ji, who returned to Doosan through a 4+2 year total of 15.2 billion won through the second FA (free agent) qualification after the 2022 season, failed to draw a single arch until the 12th. The value as a catcher is obviously excellent, but as Yang Eui-ui’s greatest strength is the power to cross the fence at any time, his performance so far has been a bit disappointing.
However, the previous day (13th), the blood was properly pierced. Yang Eui-ji led the team’s winning streak by hitting the first home run of the season against KIA in Jamsil on the 13th. And he succeeded in continuing the good flow on the 14th. In particular, he widened the score gap amidst an uneasy lead of 1 point, paving the way for the team to win.
On this day, Yang Eui-ji could not show any significant activity until the beginning and middle of the game. In the first at-bat, he struck out against KIA’Ace’ Yang Hyeon-jong, and in the second at-bat, he bowed his head with a double stroke. And in his third at-bat, he retreated with a fly ball to center field and hardly produced a hit. In addition, Yang Eui-ji’s bat did not respond even in the process of accumulating 3 points in the 6th inning.
However, at the most important moment, Yang Eui-ji’s bat shone. In the bottom of the 8th, Doosan regained the lead, 5-4. Yang Eui-ji pulled KIA Jang Hyun-sik’s 3rd 146km fastball from 1st base and 1st base, leading to a two-run home run that went over the left fence. Yang Eui-ji’s home run was very important considering that the game, which was leading 4-0, was evenly balanced at 4-4. And Doosan won 8-4 with Yang Eui-ji’s running gun and Yang Chan-yeol’s timely wedge.
Yang Eui-ji, who contributed a lot to the first ‘sweep victory’ since manager Lee Seung-yeop took office as Doosan’s command tower, said, “The home run situation was lucky. said. There is a reason Yang Eui-ji’s impressions were short. It was because of his poor play as the master of his bedroom.
Yang Eui-ji sent a runner out in the second inning when lead batter Choi Hyung-woo retired due to a strike not out. Both the catch and the throw were a little disappointing. Yang Eui-ji did not forget this scene and expressed her sorry feelings to Alcantara. He blamed himself, saying, “I’m sorry for Alcantara. I missed two catches in a game where I could throw longer while saving pitches. Next time, I’ll prepare well and help Alcantara and the team 먹튀검증.”
It was clear that he helped the team to win, but Yang Eui-ji gave the victory to his juniors. He added, “Today, I was able to win because my younger siblings were so good, not me.”
