Edison Russell (infielder) came out the most in the 4th batting order among the Kiwoom Heroes batting line after the opening of this season. However, Russell gives the impression that he is somewhat weak compared to other team’s main hitters or players entering the batting order.
His physique is the same, but he is in charge of the shortstop position, where defense is more important than offense. However, Russell was not a player with weak bat skills during his MLB days.
He played as the main shortstop when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series in 108 years in 2016, and at the time, he boasted great offensive power in ‘fall baseball’.
This kind of Russell is posting the most RBIs in the Kiwoom lineup this season. On the 27th at Gocheok Sky Dome, he also became the main character in the final match against KT Wiz on the last day of the three-week home game.
He hit a double at the right time with 2 RBIs in the bottom of the 3rd inning when the score was 1-1. He added two more RBIs to make it 22 RBIs. Kiwoom won by defending the 3-1 score scored by Russell’s RBI until the end, and swept all three home matches against KT during the week.
Russell played an active role the previous day (26th) with 3 hits and 6 RBIs, including a 2-run home run that overpowered the team at the end of the 1st inning, and played a key role in helping his team win 13-2.
After finishing the game on the 27th, he said, “I tend to concentrate better when the runner is in scoring position,” and said, “I made a good hit by not missing the pitcher’s miss. I guess.” I looked back.
Regarding the ball that hit the body, he said, “I didn’t even get icing,” saying, “I didn’t get seriously injured because there was a sand dune on the curve.”
Russell celebrates when he gets a hit or a timely hit. It’s a ‘driving ceremony’. Teammate Kim Hui-jip (infielder) said,바카라사이트 “It’s fun and it seems to have a (Russell’s) groove.”
“It means driving the team to their destination,” Russell said of his ceremony. He added, “It means driving towards a team win, or a bigger team win.”
There are also goals. He laughed and said, “It’s too early to say because the season isn’t over yet, but I’d be really happy if I scored more than 120 RBIs at the end of the season.” Russell ranks first in the RBI category not only within the team but also throughout the KBO League.
