Technical support issues
Son Ah-seop and Hong Chang-ki were also active in NC-Doosan, the professional baseball of the '2023 Shinhan Bank SOL' held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 20th.
NC Son Ah-seop appeared as a leadoff hitter in the top of the first inning and started with a heavy hit, and walked in the top of the second inning, his second at-bat. He led NC to a 5-4 victory with a double in the top of the fifth inning, a right-handed hit in the top of the seventh inning, and a left-field fly in the fifth inning.
LG's Hong Chang-ki is also formidable. He appeared as a leadoff hitter in the bottom of the first inning, his first at-bat, and made a good start by hitting a left-handed double. He got on base with a walk in the bottom of the third inning, the second at-bat, a hit to the right in the bottom of the fourth inning, and a walk again in the fourth at-bat. In the last fifth at-bat, he grounded out in front of the second baseman.
On this day, Hong Chang-ki showed good performance, scoring two hits, one walk, and two points in three at-bats.
Son Ah-seop, who started his professional career in 2007 wearing Lotte's uniform, ranked second in batting twice in 2013 and 2020, while Hong Chang-ki, who wore LG's uniform in 2016, ranked fourth with a batting average of 0.328 in 2021.
Son is known as the most difficult hitter among pitchers. Although he has a rather small physique, the point of contact while watching the ball to the end is accurate. He also hit 150 hits for the first time in eight consecutive years.
Hong Chang-ki, who is tall and has a good physique, is known as a good pioneer. He has the ability to make good hits based on good pioneering skills. He ranks first in the league in walks this year with 4.27 pitches per at-bat.
The batting champion war, which is more intense than ever before, is expected to be fierce until the end of the game. Whoever it is, he is the first batting champion in his life.
NC-LG's game was up and down, and NC won by one point due to Austin's throwing error that caught Seo Ho-chul's ball in the top of the ninth inning with two outs and a runner on second base, which was tied 4-4.
