Yesterday (with special training at night) I think I came to my senses. I came to the pros and hit (a bat) for the first time outside.” He added, “I had a good feeling during training, so I wondered when it would explode in the game, but today we all did well together, scored a lot, and won, so it feels good.” 

After hitting consecutive home runs, he credited it to his teammates. “After Pirella hit a double with two RBIs in the first inning, I felt at ease.

Kim Dong-yeop, who said, “I feel better with a wedge hit than a home run in consecutive hits,” said, “Because I thought it was the last at-bat, I thought I had to get a good result at the end even for the weekend’s three-game series. I think it went well without it,” he explained.  

Kim Dong-yeop,바카라 who has both accuracy and destructive power, is 10 hits in 27 at-bats, a batting average of 3.7, 3 homers, 8 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.155 as of the 13th, making opposing pitchers feel cold. He smiled and said, “In fact, since his professional debut, there has never been a season that started as well as this year. I even wondered myself.” 

I have nothing more to lose. Kim Dong-yeop expressed his confidence, “I can’t do worse than the past two years. I thought to myself that I could always rebound and prepared hard throughout the winter. Even now, when I train, my coach helps me a lot, so I’m continuing a good rhythm.”
