Lee Jeong-hoo (24), Kiwoom’s leading hitter and captain, surpassed his father, LG coach Lee Jong-beom, again.

In the 2023 Professional Baseball SSG home game held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 5th, Lee Jung-hoo started as a center fielder with the first batter and hit a double that fell to the right of the right fielder in the 2nd out of the 8th inning, which was behind 1-2.

Lee Jung-hoo,스포츠토토 who had 199 hits until the previous day, set a record of 1,100 hits for the 102nd time in the KBO league. With this hit, coach Lee Jong-beom’s record of 1,100 hits in the lowest game ever held was changed from 868 games to 824 games.

In addition, Lee Jung-hoo, who achieved this record at 24 years, 8 months and 15 days, became the youngest ever to achieve the record, surpassing Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop. The previous record was 26 years and 5 days by Lee Seung-yeop.

But Lee Jung-hoo couldn’t laugh.

Kiwoom lost 1-3 that day.

Lee Jung-hoo, who achieved the batting title for the last two seasons in a row, is in sluggishness this season for no reason. Kiwoom coach Hong Won-gi placed Lee Jung-hoo at number 1, hoping to make use of the sense of hitting through many at-bat opportunities. Coach Hong Won-ki said, “I changed the batting line in the sense of starting anew in May,” and said, “I think you can see Lee Jung-hoo as one of the ways to actively attack.”

Regarding lead-off Lee Jung-hoo, he said, “Because my role is to go to base after hitting a lot to get on base or score, Lee Jung-hoo is Lee Jung-hoo, whether he is at number 3 or 1.” One of the ways to return to the original position is to digest more at bats.”

Lee Jung-hoo, who struck out in the first inning, reached base with a ground ball to second base in the third inning, but swallowed his regret as Lee Ji-young, who was already on first base, was out. Lee Jung-hoo, who was out with a ground ball to third base in the 6th inning, only got a long hit in the 8th inning.

Kiwoom scored only one point as other hitters besides Lee Jung-hoo could not easily attack SSG starter Oh Won-seok. Losing 1-3, not only the last 2 losses, but also the 5th consecutive loss against SSG since the Munhak match on September 30 last year. The streak of 4 home wins also ended.
