Giants’ Jung Hoo Lee Makes Waves with Impressive Hits Against Phillies’ Top Pitcher

Daniel Kim Views  

[Alpha Economy: Byung Sung Park] San Francisco Giants outfielder Jung Hoo Lee has caught attention after successfully hitting against the Philadelphia Phillies’ key pitcher in a Major League game.

On the 6th, Lee Jung Hoo appeared as an outfielder and lead-off hitter in an away game at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Phillies started with Zack Wheeler as their pitcher for the day. Wheeler has been impressive this season, with three wins and three losses in 8 games and an average ERA of 1.79. His overall Major League performance is also remarkable, with 90 wins, 66 losses, and an average ERA of 3.39.

In his first at-bat, Lee Jung Hoo hit Wheeler’s four-seam fastball, which was thrown at a speed of 96.1 miles (about 155 km). Although the ball’s speed was only 68.8 miles (about 111 km), it lacked power and fell in front of the left fielder, but it was luckily connected to a hit.

In the top of the third inning, at his second at-bat, he attempted to hit Wheeler’s cutter, which was thrown at a speed of 90 miles (about 145 km) at a ball count of 1 ball and 2 strikes. However, the ball flew straight to the left fielder, and he was eventually out. The ball’s speed was 82.7 miles (about 133 km).

In the top of the sixth inning, at his third at-bat, Lee Jung Hoo faced Wheeler again and hit a cutter at a strike count of 1 but was out on a fly to center field.

In the top of the eighth inning, at his fourth at-bat, he faced the Phillies’ replacement pitcher Matt Strahm and hit a clean single in front of the center fielder with Strahm’s sinker thrown at a speed of 93.8 miles (about 151 km) at a ball count of 1.

Lee Jung Hoo, who recorded his first multi-hit since last month, recovered his season batting average to .252 after the game, but his OPS remained a disappointing .623.
