Lim Byung-wook’s cannon exploded at the right place. At the end of the 4th inning, when the team was trailing 1-4, Lim Byeong-wook shot a two-run home run by hitting Lotte starter Park Se-woong’s 123km curve. This is the 5th home run of the season.
After the game, Lim Byung-wook said of the home run, “I felt good, but the situation was not reversed yet. I had the heart to focus more on the game.” The whole curve tripped and went over. I hit a home run after a long time.”
Lim Byung-wook, who was discharged in September of last year, has been playing in the first team for the first time in three seasons since 2020. Lim Byung-wook said, “My position has changed. My childhood has passed and I have grown older. It has been 10 years since his debut, and I have many juniors.”
Lim Byung-wook, who joined Nexen (currently Kiwoom) as the first nomination in 2014, received a lot of attention as a 5-tool player capable of both offense, defense and state. However, after he joined the club, he suffered from numerous injuries and failed to show his full potential. Except for 2018 (0.293 batting average in 134 games), he has no season with significant achievements.
This year, he participated in 67 games and recorded a batting average of 0.261, 5 homers and 29 RBIs. Lim Byeong-wook is showing off a hot hitting feeling with a batting average of 40% in August.
Lim Byeong-wook said, “I always try to show a player-like appearance when I play. There are players from other teams on the current team, but I think today’s game gave me the feeling that the remaining franchise players are in good health.” It’s okay. I’m trying to do well every time I go to the game.”
He said, “There was a bad play in the first inning defense, but it can be called tenacity. It was because the motivation to catch the ball was ahead, but that kind of play came out, but if the fans saw it as a play they did their best, I think it was okay.”
