‘Grandson of the Wind’ Lee Jeong-hoo, who headed to the U.S. Major League with great expectations, is living up to the expectations.

The offense started in the bottom of the first inning with one point given up to Arizona.

Leadoff hitter Lee Jeong-hoo catches opposing ace Jack Gallon’s second pitch and throws it over the fence.

It was his first home run at his home stadium, Oracle Park, and his second home run of the season.

It has been 21 days since he hit his first home run in his debut against San Diego on the 31st of last month.

Lee Jeong-hoo’s home run, which balances the game, has another meaning as a Korean major leaguer.

Since the game against San Diego on the 8th, he has continued his hitting streak for 11 consecutive games, which is the longest debut season for a Korean big leaguer ever.

Previously, he had tied the record of hitting in 10 consecutive games with Pittsburgh’s Kang Jung-ho in 2015 and Baltimore’s Kim Hyun-soo in 2016, but Lee Jung-hoo was one step ahead.

Lee Jeong-hoo’s bat, which had been quiet, returned once again in the 8th inning.

In the 8th inning, with a 5-3 lead, with one out and two on base, Lee Jeong-hoo hit a timely double, completing a ‘multi-hit’ game.

Lee Jeong-hoo, who reached home with a timely hit from the follow-up batter, gave a perfect performance with 2 hits in 5 at-bats, 2 RBIs, and 2 runs scored.

Lee Jeong-hoo’s season batting average rose to .289, and the team also had a blast with a 7-3 win.
