Lee Jung-hoo’s bold way to hit two strikes in three consecutive games

San Francisco’s Lee Jung-hoo is not intimidated by the two-strike situation and continues his swing.

Lee Jung-hoo started as the first center fielder in an exhibition game against Texas in the 2024 Major League Baseball at Scottsdale Stadium in Arizona on the 2nd (Korea time) and recorded one hit in three times at bat.

He has already had a hitting streak in three consecutive games. Lee, who had one hit from three times at bat at his exhibition game debut game on April 28, hit two hits from three times at bat including a home run the following day, and garnered a hit in the third game as well. Currently, Lee has four hits from nine times at bat (batting average of 0.444), one homer, and two runs scored.

The Texas starter Lee Jung-hoo faced on the day was Adrian Sampson, who is familiar to domestic baseball fans. Sampson played in the KBO league in 2020 wearing Lotte’s uniform, and there was no showdown with Lee Jung-hoo, who was a member of Kiwoom.

Lee Jung-hoo scooped up Samson’s ball in his first at-bat in the first inning, but he stepped down with a fly ball to center field and met again in the third inning and turned to a fly ball to third base.

However, it was different in the third at bat. Taking the batter’s box in the fifth inning with a 4-2 lead, Lee made a heavy hit by hitting the second base off the changed pitcher Colwin when his ball count was 0-2 strike unfavorable.

Most hitters tend to be passive when ball count is concentrated at two strikes. However, Lee Jung-hoo was different.

In fact, Lee Jung-hoo also left a bizarre performance in the KBO League last season, just before he entered the U.S., not allowing a batting average of 0.409 (9 hits in 22 at-bats) and not allowing a single strikeout during a 0-ball-2 strike.

Even in times of crisis, Lee continues to display strong batting performance in the U.S. Lee Jung-hoo is proving that it is not a coincidence as he produced his first hit at an exhibition game on April 28, as well as his next day’s double at two strikes.

Meanwhile, Lee Jung-hoo, who continued his hitting streak for three consecutive games, was replaced by Donovan Walton in the bottom of the sixth inning and was out, while coach Lee Jong-beom, who is currently training as a coach in a minor league under Texas, sat in the dugout and watched his son’s game with the consideration of the club.
