It’s not just a lot of home runs. Each home run is nutritious. LG’s first baseman Park Dong-won, who leads the league in home runs, once again proved his worth in the clutch.
In the top of the eighth inning against Gochuk Kiwoom on July 7, Park unleashed a cannon from second base. Two batters later, Austin Dean doubled and the next batter, Park Dong-won, hit a Won Jong-hyun fastball over the left field fence for a grand slam.
The home run tied the game at 3-3. It was Park’s 14th home run of the season, extending his lead in the home run category.
Most of Park’s 14 home runs this season have come in key situations, either to extend the lead in a close game or to chase down an opponent who has run away.안전놀이터
On this day, he hit the tying run with the bases loaded and the opposition looking for the win, giving Won a blown save.
