After two outs in the bottom of the first inning, he walked on base in his first at-bat, then advanced to second base with Yang Seok-hwan’s hit. He rushed home when Rojas hit right in the 5th. However, right fielder Ja-wook Koo threw out and tagged out. In the process of sliding the Bentleg, his leg got caught in catcher Kim Tae-goon’s leg.
In the process, Yang Eui-ji grabbed his right shin and complained of his pain. The trainer went out and checked, and luckily I got myself up and went back to the bench with a slight limp.
Yang Eui-ji wore a protective gear and sat down with a mask on defense in the beginning of the second inning. He didn’t seem to have any major injuries.
However, after allowing Kang Han-ul to hit after one out, he was replaced with Jang Seung-hyun at the plate of Oh Jae-il. He was still in pain to continue playing. An official from the Doosan side explained, “Yang Eui-ji suffered a right shin bruise during a home collision at the end of the 1st inning and was replaced with Jang Seung-hyun while defending in the top of the 2nd inning.”
Yang Eui-ji was showing off his peak hitting feeling with 14 hits in 35 at-bats (0.400), 3 homers and 9 RBIs in the last 10 games. On the 23rd, the previous day, he had a 3-hit game against Samsung. He even confidently said, “Recently, the sense of hitting has increased a lot.” In his first at-bat, the Samsung battery was alert and gave up a walk. There are concerns that the crash injury will be a brake on the upward trend.
