Competition for home run king in the KBO League in the 2023 season, which seemed to end with Hanwha Eagles’ Noh Si-hwan, is hot again. 토토사이트 SSG Landers veteran Choi Jung last-minute push narrowed the gap to only two.
Through the 12th, Noh has a batting average of 0.299 with 31 home runs, 99 RBIs and 84 runs in 128 games this season. He showed off his unrivaled pace by hitting 19 home runs in the first half alone, but in the match against the LG Twins in Jamsil on the 2nd of last month, he was the first to reach the 30 home runs mark this season, and seemed likely to become the home run king.
However, Roh Si-hwan’s home run graph slowed sharply from 30 home runs. The 31st home run of the season came only against the Kiwoom Heroes in Daejeon on the 22nd of last month, with only two home runs he shot in September. There is definitely a big difference compared to eight arches drawn in August alone.
In addition, Roh had to stay away for a while as he joined the national baseball team for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. Unlike in the past, this year’s KBO League proceeded without interruption during the Asian Games. For Noh, he missed the opportunity to add a home run. Fortunately, he returned home with the gold medal around his neck, but as soon as he returned home, he returned from the match against the Changwon NC Dinos on the 9th and played in two games until the next day, but he could not add more home runs.
While Noh Si-hwan slowed down with 31 home runs, Choi Jung raised his home run pace. Choi has a batting average of 0.297 with 29 home runs, 87 RBIs and 94 runs in 128 games this season until the 12th. He ranks second in the home run category after Noh Si-hwan.
Choi Jeong remained at 24 home runs when Roh Si-hwan hit 30 home runs. However, while Noh Si-hwan added one home run, he hit as many as five home runs and chased right around the corner. He hit three home runs in four games in October. In particular, in the match against Hanwha in Incheon on the 6th, he displayed his unique driving ability with consecutive at-bats arches. He is reviving his potential and career, which won the home run king three times 2016, 2017, 2021.
In the end, the competition between the two big guns is expected to end only after completing the 144th game this season. Noh Si-hwan of Susung can play up to three games and Choi Jeong, who is aiming for a reversal, can play in four games. Given the current gap and pace, it is a competition that no one can easily predict the ending.
