‘The timing was not right at all for either the fastball or the breaking ball’ O’Grady, a foreign batter who fell into a 6-penny hitter who fell into extreme sluggish batting, with 3 strikeouts in 3 at-bats, disappeared after the 7th inning.
Even if the bat of O’Grady, a foreign batter recruited in anticipation of a hot shot, is too cold.
0.067 batting average in the last 10 games. The hearts of Hanwha fans watching foreign batters who can’t even hit 10% are also burning. 2 hits, 1 RBI, 2 walks, 19 strikeouts in 30 at-bats. In a word, it’s a record you don’t want to believe. While striking out 19 times, he has only two walks, and his starting pitching is also poor.
The expected home run shot disappeared. O’Grady’s batting average in 12 exhibition games was 0.114. His sophistication declined, but he thought it was a matter of adjustment. Still, he showed that he was a hitter with a home run and hit 3 hits. But that was it.
It was the first 3 home matches played under coach Choi Won-ho after the sacking of coach Subero. Ahead of the Lotte game, which is competing for the lead, coach Choi adjusted O’Grady’s batting order to 7th. I hoped to regain the sense of hitting by playing comfortably in the lower line with less pressure.
O’Grady’s three-game record was 2 strikeouts in 2 at-bats, 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 1 strikeout, and 3 strikeouts in 3 at-bats. There were no walks. From the beginning of the season, the bat was too bad, so O’Grady, who entered the plate, seemed to be swinging as if being chased. Of course, the person he wants to do better than anyone else will be the player himself. However, Hanwha’s patience is showing its limits in a situation where faith is not yielding results.
The 18th, the last day of the three-game series. O’Grady strikes out standing in the first at-bat to Hyeon-hee Han on the sidearm, and strikes out in the second at-bat with a 1B 2S unfavorable count to the center, but O’Grady’s bat turns languidly and strikes out. In the last at-bat, in the 7th inning, left-hander Kim Jin-wook went to a full count and continued a persistent game, but he swung again at a fastball that came in low from the outside and struck out in 3 consecutive at-bats.
O’Grady, who was replaced with Kwon Kwang-min ahead of the defense in the 8th inning, did not show up on the ground after the game ended either in dugout.
The foreign hitter O’Grady’s home run that everyone hoped for was coincidentally replaced by Kwang-min Kwon, who hit a three-run four against Lotte Na Won-tak with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases in the 9th inning. It was like a joke of fate.안전놀이터
O’Gredi’s batting average for the season, which was as high as the contract money of 900,000 dollars, was 0.125, and the batting average for the last 10 games has dropped to 0.067. The mind of the player himself and the fans of the Hanwha Eagles is getting more and more burning as to when O’Grady’s home run will hit.
