KIA Tigers outfielder Lee Woo-sung turned the game around with his first career grand slam.
Lee, who started as the sixth outfielder and right fielder, hit a grounder to third base in the bottom of the second inning, and a throwing error by third baseman Heo Kyung-min brought in Choi Hyung-woo. However, while running to second base, Lee collided with first base umpire Na Kwang-nam and went down, and since it was an “in-play” situation, he was tagged out. Lee couldn’t smile after scoring the team’s first run.
However, Lee made up for it in his next at-bat. In the bottom of the fourth inning, with his team trailing 1-2, leadoff hitter Na Sung-bum doubled, Choi Hyung-woo walked, and Kim Sun-bin singled to load the bases with nobody out. On a 2-2 count, Lee hit a seven-pitch slider from Doosan starter Brandon Waddell for a grand slam over the left field fence. It was Lee’s seventh home run of the season, 27 days after his last against the Daegu Samsung Lions on March 19.토토사이트
After being selected by Doosan with the 15th pick in the second round of the 2013 rookie draft, Lee put on a KIA uniform after playing for the NC Dinos, and was happy to hit his first grand slam since entering the professional ranks.
Meanwhile, KIA took a 5-2 lead in the fifth inning thanks to Lee Woo-sung’s grand slam.
