The Lotte Giants, which started the last-minute quenching ahead of the season’s opening, have table setters Yoon Dong-hee and Ko Seung-min with long balls hitting home runs.

Manager Kim Tae-hyung looked pleased with the thunderous swing of No. 2 hitter Ko Seung-min, who hit the first solo shot with a bold swing from his first at-bat, and No. 1 hitter Yoon Dong-hee, who hit a solo shot running away from his second at-bat.

At an exhibition game between Samsung and Lotte in the KBO League held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on Saturday, manager Kim Tae-hyung set up a table setter with Yoon Dong-hee and Ko Seung-min.

Kim Min-seok, who was the most likely leadoff candidate this season, was injured during defensive training on the 7th, and Han Dong-hee, who had to take charge of the central lineup, left the exhibition game due to injury. Kim Min-seok and Han Dong-hee need about a month to rehabilitate.

Although the vacancy of the two is large, Lotte’s batting line-up is forming with Yoon Dong-hee and Ko Seung-min, who are showing off their hot hitting feeling in exhibition games.

Manager Kim Tae-hyung praised Ko, who had a batting average of 0.545 to 11 times at bat, one RBI, four runs scored and two steals before the game. “He is currently hitting the best pace. He is excellent in both speed and power,” Kim said of Ko’s batting sense.

Go Seung-min, who started as the second batter at manager Kim Tae-hyung’s compliment, responded with a home run from his first at bat. With one out in the first inning, Lotte’s Go Seung-min had a showdown with left-hander Lee Seung-hyun. After picking the first ball well, Go confidently turned the bat in the count of two strikes at a disadvantage.

Lotte’s Ko Seung-min did not miss a mistake when Samsung Lee Seung-hyun’s 132km slider was thrown in the middle after three foul cuts.

The batter hit the center of the bat flew over the right fence and hit his first homerun in an exhibition game. Ko Seung-min, who impressed manager Kim Tae-hyung with his strong batting sense, was also hot on the day.

Commentator Lee Taek-geun praised Ko Seung-min’s home run, saying, “The swing is light and soft.”

Leadoff Yoon Dong-hee, who watched the first solo shot of the second batter Ko Seung-min in the first inning, also did not stay put.

Yoon Dong-hee, who entered the batter’s box as a lead-off hitter in the third inning when he was 1-0 ahead of Samsung left-hander Lee Seung-hyun, pulled as hard as he could when the 115km curve of the 2B 2S fifth pitch entered the strike zone with a real shot, and sent the ball over the left fence.

Commentator Lee Taek-geun was also surprised to see the table setter lead the game with two home runs in one game. Commentator Lee Taek-geun said, “I think Lotte batters definitely come to bat with data. It is impressive to see them attack so boldly.”

With Kim Min-seok and Han Dong-hee, who have to take charge of the leadoff and the central lineup ahead of the season’s opening, missing due to injuries during the exhibition game, Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung is pleased with the hot hitting feeling of table setter Yoon Dong-hee and Ko Seung-min. 안전놀이터
