Oh Ji-hwan, captain of the LG Twins in professional baseball, will challenge the record of the Korean Series in history with his first championship in 29 years. You only have to hit one more home run and one more double. 스포츠토토핫
Oh Ji-hwan is set to play in Game 5 against the kt Wiz of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Korean Series best-of-seven series at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 13th. LG, which is leading the series with 3 wins and 1 loss, will win the Korean Series trophy for the first time in 29 years since 1994.
Captain Oh Ji-hwan is at the core of LG’s lineup. He is wielding a bat of fire as if he were taking a pill. Oh Ji-hwan had six hits, three homers, eight RBIs and six runs in 15 at-bats until the fourth game. He has a batting average of 400%, and a slugging rate of more than 100%.
One of the points to watch in Game 5 is Oh Ji-hwan’s bat. This is because if Oh Ji-hwan hits only one home run and one double each, he will be the main character of various records in the Korean Series.
First of all, one home run can break the ‘longest consecutive home run record in the Korean Series’. Oh hit home runs in three consecutive games from Game 2 to Game 4. This alone is the longest home run in a single Korean series.
Earlier, LG Power Reinforcement Coordinator Kim Jae-hyun played three consecutive games as a member of the SK Wyverns currently SSG Landers from Game 6 of the 2007 Korean Series to Game 2 of the 2008 Korean Series. It was his third consecutive home run in the Korean Series over two seasons.
He can also set the record of the most home runs in the Korean Series in a single season. The players who hit the most home runs in a single Korean Series were Tyrone Woods Doosan in 2001 and Yamaico Navarro Samsung in 2014. The two each hit four home runs. Oh Ji-hwan, who currently has three home runs, will challenge this record for the first time as a Korean player.
If one double is added, it will also be listed as the record for the most luta ties in the Korean Series in a single season. Oh produced a total of 16 hits until Game 4. The record for most luta is 22 hits set by Woods in 2001. If Oh Ji-hwan adds a six-base hit with one home run and one double, he will set the same record as Woods.
In addition, there are three more points left in the single Korean Series nine points. It remains to be seen whether Oh Ji-hwan will continue his momentum at the plate and set various records as well as the team’s victory.
