Yang Eui-ji, 8th inning grand slam

Yang Eui-ji (37, Doosan Bears) held a ceremony pointing to the sky in front of home plate after hitting a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th inning that became the deciding factor.

It was a ‘nonsensical ceremony’ that could easily be overlooked if not paid close attention, but Yang Ui-ji smiled and said, “Isn’t it more extreme than my usual self?”

Yang Eui-ji, the ‘fox in bear’s clothing’, enjoyed the joy of victory in a ‘relatively extreme’ way.

Doosan won a comeback victory 13-8 in a home game against the Lotte Giants held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 3rd.

On this day, Yang Eui-ji had a great performance with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 6 RBIs, and 4 runs, and he had 6 RBIs with two home runs.

In the bottom of the third inning, with two outs and a runner on first base and the score 1-6, Yang Eui-ji hit a 121 km/h curveball from Lotte starting pitcher Park Se-woong for his 10th two-run homer of the season.

Yang Eui-ji became the 14th player in history to hit double-digit home runs in 11 consecutive seasons.

Yang Eui-ji is the fourth catcher to hit 10 or more home runs in 11 consecutive seasons, following Lee Man-soo, Park Kyung-wan, and Kang Min-ho.

Yang Eui-ji said, “I knew I was one home run away from achieving the record,” and added, “I think I hit a good home run in the third inning. I’ve been working with the hitting coaches to adjust my batting stance since last week, and I hit the home run today in just the right stance.”

Yang Eui-ji hit at least 10 home runs in each of his 11 seasons, and played at Jamsil Stadium, the largest stadium in Korea, for seven seasons. He played his home games at Changwon NC Park for the other four seasons as a member of the NC Dinos.

Yang Eui-ji said, “Even if we use Jamsil as our home, I thought we had to hit at least a few home runs,” and added, “I’m glad we hit 10 home runs before the end of the first half.”

In the bottom of the 8th inning, with Doosan slightly ahead 9-8 and bases loaded and no outs, Yang Eui-ji hit a 147 km/h fastball from Lotte right-handed pitcher Park Jin and hit a grand slam over the right field fence.

This is Yang Eui-ji’s ninth career grand slam.

Yang Eui-ji said, “I was lucky with the grand slam,” and “I think the ball went over because the Doosan fans encouraged me by saying, ‘Go for it,'” providing ‘fan service.

On this day, in the 5th inning, Yang Seok-hwan (Doosan) hit a grand slam, and with Yang Eui-ji’s grand slam, the unprecedented record of ‘two grand slams in one game’ was achieved for the first time in Jamsil, the ‘Mecca of Korean baseball.’ 슬롯사이트

Yang Eui-ji said, “I am honored to have my name recorded alongside my colleagues in the first KBO League record.”

Yang Seok-hwan also expressed his joy, saying, “I feel good whenever I achieve the first record,” and “It is even more meaningful because the record came in a game that is really important to the team.”

On this day, Yang Ui-ji wore a catcher’s mask on defense and was responsible for the 9 innings.

Starting pitcher Raul Alcantara collapsed, allowing 6 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks in 2 innings, but Yang Eui-ji combined with 7 bullpen pitchers to allow 2 runs in 7 innings.

When Doosan closer Kim Taek-yeon faltered in the 8th inning, Yang Ui-ji went up to the mound and changed the atmosphere.

Yang Eui-ji said, “I could see that Taecyeon’s body was very strong. I encouraged him by saying, ‘Your pitch is the best. Just be confident and throw it. ‘” He also said, “Taecyeon and all of our bullpen pitchers are pitching really well. We have many young pitchers, and I believe that they will grow into players who will represent Korean baseball in international competitions in the future.”

In the first half, Yang Eui-ji played well with a batting average of 0.344, 11 home runs, 68 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.895 despite suffering from minor injuries.

Yang Eui-ji praised his junior catcher, saying, “I had many days off due to illness here and there, but fortunately, my high school junior Kim Ki-yeon did well, which helped ease the burden. I’m glad that a great catcher from Gwangju Jinheung High School has appeared,” and promised, “The other juniors also did well. I will also take good care of my body in the second half of the season and help the team.” 파친코사이트
