Hanyu Island’s good batting performance continued in the KT Wiz three-game series held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon from the 8th to the 10th. He swung the bat with fire, going 8-for-13 with 1 RBI and 3 runs scored with a batting average of .615 and an OPS of 1.307. He is the player who showed the best hitting sense in this three-game series.
After the game on the 10th, Han Yu-seom said, “In this three-game series, my personal results were good. There were a lot of lucky hits,” and “In fact, in baseball, even if you hit well, it goes straight, and even if you miss, it is a hit because the course is good.”
Han Yu-seom said that although he had a poor performance in the first half of the season, putting his mind down and stepping into the batter’s box led to good results.
Han Yu-seom said, “It was very difficult mentally in the beginning. I felt like I wasn’t helping the team and I often thought, ‘Aren’t my individual achievements too shabby?’ “Let’s just fight the pitcher,” he said. “As I went to bat, I started hitting good balls one by one. Looking back on this week, I think I felt good at bat.”
He continued, “I only have a short amount of time to hit in the batting cage before the game, so I try to focus a lot on hitting. I believe in what I practiced back then. During the game, I don’t think much and go out,” adding, “I think I can use my swing because I’m not being chased. That’s why. “I think the results are good,” he added.
In the second half, Hanyu Island succeeded in rebounding, but SSG’s situation is not good. In the second half of the season, they recorded 16 wins, 1 draw, and 22 losses, with a winning percentage of 0.421. Considering only the second half performance, they are in 8th place. In the end, I fell from 2nd to 5th place. However, in the game against KT on the 10th, Park Seong-han’s 2-run home run in the top of the 9th inning resulted in a dramatic comeback victory. Hanyu Island believed that this game could be used as a turning point.
He said, “I think the players are very sensitive as the team’s ranking is falling and the results are not good. But I believe they know what’s not working and what to do in this situation. It’s important to trust each other now,” and “There are still games left.” That’s why this game could be a turning point. In baseball, you always don’t know what’s ahead. If everyone does their best in their respective positions, I think we can rise again.”
