Kim Seok-hwan (KIA), dubbed the “next Lee Seung-yeop,” staged an armed protest for the second consecutive day.
Kim went 3-for-3 with a home run, two doubles, and three RBIs in the Futures League game against Samsung at Gyeongsan Ballpark on February 2. With five home runs in his last five games, Kim has proven himself to be the team’s best big bat prospect.
Kim Seok-hwan, who started in the No. 4 spot in right field, opened the scoring in the first inning with a two-out, two-run double to right-center field that scored Kim Kyu-sung. He came home on Kim Ho-ryung’s double over the right-field fence. In the third inning, Kim Seok-hwan, who stepped to the plate for the second time with the bases loaded, hit a solo shot to right field off Samsung starter Park Yong-min. The shot traveled 130 meters. It was his second straight hit.
After leading off the fifth inning with a walk, Kim scored on Choi Soo-bin’s hit-by-pitch, Kim Yong-wan’s single and Jang Si-hyun’s push single. Kim, who completed his three-hit game with a single up the middle in the sixth, drew a walk in the ninth and was replaced by pinch-hitter Kim Dowall.
Meanwhile, KIA defeated Samsung 7-3. Starter Kim Gun-gook earned the win with six innings of six-hit ball, two walks, one strikeout and two runs (unearned). Kim Ho-ryung, batting in the No. 5 spot, was hot at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a home run and an RBI.메이저놀이터

Lee Sang-min, Meng Sung-joo, and Kim Tae-woo each pitched one inning of scoreless relief. Kim Sang-min, who led off the game, went 3-for-5 with a home run, one RBI and one run scored. Kim Dong-jin also had a good game with five hits, two doubles, one RBI, and one run scored.
