Doosan’s No. 4 hitter Kim Jae-hwan couldn’t smile after hitting the final home run. He was very sorry for his poor performance this season.

The Doosan Bears won the seventh game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Hanwha Eagles 4-1 at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on 6 June. The result snapped a two-game losing streak with a sweep of the three-game series and improved their record to 25 wins, one loss and 24 draws on the season.

Kim Jae-hwan started in the No. 6 spot in left field and went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs in the win. The game-winning home run came in his first at-bat. With two outs in the second inning and the score 0-0, he took a five-pitch fastball (137km) from Hanwha starter Jang Min-jae over the right field fence at 2B-2S. It was his fourth home run of the season and first in 14 games since 17 May against Gochuk Kiwoom.

After the game, Kim Jae-hwan said, “I felt sorry for the fans because I couldn’t contribute to the team’s victory as I had been hitting badly. That’s why I asked Coach Goto for a special at-bat before training today.”

Doosan’s 11.5 billion won slugger Kim Jae-hwan was in a 47-game batting slump before today. In 173 at-bats, he had hit just three home runs and a .374 on-base percentage. He was batting sixth in the batting order due to his lack of success at the top of the order. A combination of knee injuries and slugging struggles led to a rough two months after opening day.안전놀이터

Before the sixth game, the team’s manager identified Kim Jae-hwan as a key player for June. “The batting line-up should be centred on Kim Jae-hwan, but it’s going back to Yang Ji,” Lee said, adding, “In the end, he has to overcome himself. He showed his determination to get out of the slump by hitting more this morning with Coach Goto. Now we need to get results.”

Kim Jae-hwan, whose hard work paid off, said, “I could feel the coach’s consideration when I was in a slump. I want to get better as soon as possible.” “My only goal is to show my manager, the coaching staff, my teammates, and the fans. I will definitely repay the fans who came to the ballpark during the holidays,” he promised.
