KIA Tigers outfielder Lee Woo-sung turned the game around메이저놀이터 with his first grand slam in his debut.
Lee Woo-sung, who started as the sixth batter and right fielder, hit a ground ball to third base in the bottom of the second inning, his first at-bat, with one out and one out, and third baseman Heo Gyeong-min’s throwing error brought in third base runner Choi Hyeong-woo. However, while running to second base, he collided with first base umpire Na Gwang-nam and fell down, and since it was an ‘in play’ situation, he was tagged out. This is why Lee Woo-sung could not smile even after scoring the first goal for his team.
However, Lee Woo-sung made up for his disappointment in the next at-bat. In the bottom of the 4th inning, when the team was trailing 1-2, leadoff hitter Na Seong-beom’s double, Choi Hyeong-woo’s walk, and Kim Sun-bin’s leadoff hit allowed three batters in a row to load the bases with no outs, and Woo-sung Lee hit Doosan starter Brandon Waddell’s 7th pitch with the ball count at 2-2. He hit a slider and fired a grand slam that went over the left wall. Lee Woo-sung hit his 7th home run of the season 27 days after the Daegu Samsung Lions game on the 19th of last month.
After being selected by Doosan with the 15th pick in the second round of the 2013 rookie draft, he went through the NC Dinos and wore the KIA uniform, and experienced the joy of recording his first grand slam since entering the professional ranks.
Meanwhile, KIA is ahead 5-2 as of the 5th inning thanks to Lee Woo-sung’s grand slam.
