This is the major league class.
SSG Landers won 7-6 in an away스포츠토토 game against Kiwoom Heroes held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 7th.
With this, he succeeded in sweeping Kiwoom (winning all 3 matches) and decorated his 5-game winning streak.
At the center was Guillermo Heredia, a foreign hitter. Heredia started as the left fielder as the 4th hitter in the game and showed a tremendous performance with 4 hits and 2 RBIs in 6 at-bats. In the three games against Kiwoom this time, he posted a batting average of 0.538 (7 hits in 13 at-bats).
Heredia’s weekly performance is also splendid. He played 6 games during the week and had a batting average of 0.458 (11 hits in 24 at-bats), an OPS of 1.083, a weekly scoring average of 0.500 (5 hits in 10 at-bats), and two final hits.
In particular, Heredia’s performance is reminiscent of SSG’s longest-serving foreign hitter, Jamie Romac.
As an outside hitter who played for SK Wyverns and SSG for five years from 2017 to 2021, Romac has played a role as a solver for the team, such as a KBO career batting average of 0.271 and 155 home runs OPS of 0.908.
This season, Heredia also has a batting average of 0.373, 26 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.930, continuing the lineage of foreign problem solvers following Romac.
In particular, the season’s final blows are 1st in the league with 6, and batting average, hits, and WAR (1.63) are also ranked 1st in the league.
Heredia made his major league debut right after signing with the Seattle Mariners in 2016 and went through the Tampa Bay Rays, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets, and Atlanta Braves, batting average of 0.231, 27 home runs, and 114 RBIs in 591 games over seven major league seasons. raised
It is safe to say that Heredia is leading the SSG lineup this season based on his rich experience in the big leagues.
Attention is focusing on whether SSG will be able to take a step forward in its second consecutive championship challenge thanks to Heredia’s performance.
Meanwhile, SSG will face KIA Tigers in Gwangju on the 9th.
