LG Garcia hit his fifth consecutive left-right at-bat home run in a game between LG-SSG in the “2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League” at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the afternoon of the 18th. Prior to the fifth record ever, only Seo Dong-wook and Mel Rojas Jr. achieved it. It is a rare record that there are 11 home runs in the left and right at-bats in a game other than consecutive at-bats, including Garcia.
LG Garcia started as the seventh batter at second base. In the top of the first inning and the top of the fourth inning, Ponte struck out his head in a row. In the top of the sixth inning, leadoff hitter Moon Sung-joo hit a solo home run, and Garcia, who entered the batter’s box, hit a superior home run by targeting a high ball from the font. This is his second home run in five games since the game against Hanwha on the 12th.
Garcia’s fire bat continued. In the top of the seventh inning, SSG’s changed pitcher Kim Taek-hyung was at right-handed this time. Garcia’s ball, which hit Kim Taek-hyung’s fastball, crossed the left-center fence. After Garcia hit a home run in the top of the sixth inning, “Jamsil Big Boy” Lee Jae-won in the dugout practiced a ceremony with Garcia. I continued to instill the ceremony method through an interpreter.
“Jamsil Big Boy” Lee Jae-won was the result of practicing a ceremony with him during the game in anticipation of Garcia’s consecutive at-bats. Garcia, who hit consecutive at-bats home runs, had a ceremony with Lee Jae-won, who was waiting in front of the dugout, and then came into the dugout and high-fived with his teammates. 스포츠토토
