“If all else fails, I’ll eat a hamburger.”
Kim Hye-sung (24, Kiwoom Heroes) gave an unexpected answer to a lighthearted question about adapting to local food when we met at the Gocheok Sky Dome before departing for Hangzhou, China.
Kim is known for her self-care regimen that even her seniors and juniors are tongue-in-cheek about. Her diet is a prime example, and she rarely eats carbohydrates like white rice or ramen to take care of her body. At the beginning of this season, he still refused to eat white rice, so it’s surprising to see him eating hamburgers. However, Kim started eating white rice at the beginning of the second half of the season. He felt that his performance was vital to the team’s stagnant performance and that he needed to recharge his batteries, so he began to eat white rice and drink grain lattes in his coffee.
Although his team remained at the bottom of the league despite his struggles, the Korean National Baseball Team at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games has the green light to win its fourth consecutive gold medal with a 100 percent healthy Kim Hye-sung.
South Korea claimed a 10-0 cold-game victory over Hong Kong in the first game of the Baseball Qualifier Group B at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Shaoxing Baseball Sports and Culture Center near Hangzhou, China, on Monday (Feb. 1).
Unlike the expected cold game victory, Korea’s bats didn’t come alive and the game was not easy. To make matters worse, the game was delayed for more than 20 minutes at the end of the third inning due to a combination of umpiring errors and poor play by the players.
It was captain Kim Hye-sung who broke the stalemate. In the bottom of the fourth inning, with South Korea leading 1-0, Kim took a fastball that was coming toward her and sent it to the far right field corner. It was a two-run shot that gave South Korea a 3-0 lead.
Kim started and ended South Korea’s seven-run eighth inning. With the bases loaded and nobody out, Kim hit a short single to left field, and while the left fielder hesitated, Kim used her quick feet to get to second base with room to spare. Noh Si-hwan followed with a single to right-center, and the Korean bats exploded from there.
Yoon Dong-hee followed with a two-run double to score the eighth run of the game, but the frustration began to build again. There were still two runs left to reach the 10-run mark. Park Sung-seong brought in the ninth run with a sacrifice fly to right field, but the bases were loaded with no outs. However, Kim Hyung-jun drew a full-count walk and Kim Sung-yoon followed with a hit-by-pitch, putting the table back in front of Kim Hye-sung. Kim Hye-sung did not disappoint, hitting a single to right-center field to drive in 10 runs and give South Korea a 10-0 victory.메이저사이트
With the victory, Korea can now look forward to facing Chinese Taipei at 7:30 p.m. today. In this tournament, group performance carries over into the Super Round, so Korea needs to win all three games to advance to the top of the group.
In her third international tournament and first as a starter, Kim Hye-sung continued her good form with the national team, going 3-for-6 with a home run, three RBIs and a run scored in the first game. At the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), she was not a starter, but she made a name for herself with her hitting and defense. He batted .615 (8-for-13) with one home run, three RBIs and two stolen bases in six games at the Olympics and .500 (2-for-1) with three RBIs and three runs scored in three games at the WBC, bringing his average to .571 (12-for-21) with the Korean flag.
