‘4 games, 3 home runs’ KIA Socrates… “secret? I like the weather!”

“I think good results came out as the weather got warmer.”

KIA Tigers outfielder Socrates Brito (31) hit a come-from-behind two-run home run that brought victory to the team.

On the 20th, Socrates started as a center fielder in the home game against the Kiwoom Heroes at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field, hitting number 3 and hitting a home run with a distance of 115m in the second at-bat. This is season 5 home run.

At the end of the 3rd inning, Socrates, who was at bat with no outs on first base, hit Kiwoom starter Ariel Furado’s first pitch, a two-seam at 145 km/h, and made a superior two-run home run. KIA, which was trailing 1-2, quickly turned 3-2 with this home run.

I didn’t miss the mistake that was driven to the middle. Socrates has hit the peak by hitting three home runs in the last four games. He also continued his 6-game hitting streak.

Socrates, who met with reporters after the game, said, “The swing that was good in the past is coming back. If I do this, good results will continue to come out,” he said with a smile. He added, “The fact that the weather is getting warmer is the secret to producing good results.”

In May of last year, his first year in the KBO League, Socrates showed a peak sense of hitting with a batting average of 0.415 and 5 homers. When asked if the then and now were similar, Socrates said, “May of last year was a month that hit really well. I’m not sure if now is the same as then, but I still want to do well as I always do.”먹튀검증

Socrates finished the season last year with a batting average of 0.311 and 17 homers. Naturally, the pitchers facing Socrate this year do not throw easy pitches. Socrates said, “Opponent pitchers throw a lot of balls that come below the strike zone. He explained that the reason he struggled a little at the beginning of the season was because he swung his bat at a ball that fell below the zone.”

Socrates was pointed out by KIA coach Kim Jong-guk as “a hitter who should be played in the center of the batting line.” “I don’t care about home runs or records,” he said. He just wants to focus on helping the team as much as possible.”

Meanwhile, KIA ran for 4 consecutive wins thanks to Socrates’ come-from-behind 2-run home run. et16@sportsseoul.com
