“The grandson of the wind hit a home run!”

San Francisco Giants’ Lee Jung-hoo stunned Major League Baseball with his first home run in an exhibition game. Lee started at first base and center field in the Major League Baseball (MLB) exhibition game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, on Monday (July 1).

It was his second MLB exhibition game appearance. Lee went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run. After batting first in the lineup, 스포츠토토 Lee launched a home run in his second at-bat.

Facing Arizona right-hander Line Nelson with two outs in the top of the third inning and San Francisco trailing 0-2, Lee took a four-pitch fastball on a 2b1s count and lifted a 152.4-mph fastball over the right-field wall for a three-run homer. It was Lee’s first major league home run, albeit in an exhibition game.

He also doubled in his first at-bat.

Lee led off the first inning with a double off Nelson, hitting a curveball over the right-field fence from 2S. Against Nelson, who throws a fastball and a changeup with a lot of drop, Lee was able to hit both pitches for long balls, showing that he’s already adjusted to the major league stage.

After a grounder to third base in his third at-bat, Lee was replaced by a pinch-hitter to end the second exhibition game. After going 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in his exhibition debut against the Seattle Mariners last month, Lee made his presence felt in the major leagues once again. His batting average through Day 1 is 5-for-6 with three home runs.

The San Francisco Giants were surprised by Lee’s home run and immediately posted a video of the home run on social media. “Lee Jung-hoo’s first home run in a San Francisco Giants uniform! Lee Jung-hoo,” the team wrote in Korean, followed by “Apparently the “Grandson of the Wind” thing applies to home run trots too,” referring to Lee’s speed as he quickly rounded first base and sprinted to second base after hitting the home run. San Francisco fans chimed in with comments like, “I think we have a new MLB star in Lee Jung-hoo.”

According to MLB Statcast, 온라인카지노사이트 Lee’s home run traveled about 420 feet (128 meters) and had a bat speed of 110 mph (177 km/h). With less than a month to go until the official opening day, things are quickly picking up.
