The Samsung Lions have been on a three-game winning streak since the game against the Daegu NC Dinosaurs on the 14th. He hit 11 home runs among the three consecutive wins, beating the opponent team’s mound. He has not been able to take full advantage of the batter-friendly stadium so far, but he has finally started to enjoy the game.

“As one or two players started to hit (homerun), everyone gained confidence. I think I’m getting good results as I swing properly at the batter’s box,” he added.

Starting pitcher Danny Reyes earned his third win of the season by allowing one run in five innings. “I feel like I’ve regained stability now. I got some mental space from the beginning of the game thanks to the scoring support. I hope you continue to throw me like that,” he said. Of course, he is not without regrets. “It would have been better if I played until the sixth inning, but I’m a little disappointed,” he said.안전놀이터
