Na Seong-beom started as the third hitter and right fielder in the Munhak SSG Landers match on September 1, contributing to the team’s 10-2 win with 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 home run, 5 RBI, 1 run, and 1 walk.

On this day, Na Seong-beom was kicked out by a fly ball from shortstop in his first at-bat in the top of the first inning, and then hit a timely hit with an RBI to left in his second at-bat with 2 outs and runners on second base in the top of the 3rd inning with a 1-0 lead.

Na Seong-beom, who got a walk in the beginning of the 5th inning, hit a right-handed hit with 1 RBI in the 7th inning with an opportunity to second base safely, making the score 6-0.

Na Seong-beom’s hot bat reached its climax in the beginning of the ninth inning. In the early ninth inning, Na Seong-beom hit the 116km/h curve on the third pitch of pitcher Song Young-jin, who had changed from the chance to get first and second base safely, and hit a 3-run home run with Woo Joong-wol with a distance of 120m.

KIA completely devastated the SSG mound with 14 hits and 10 points, including three homers by Park Chan-ho, Na Seong-beom, and Socrates. On the mound, starting pitcher Yang Hyeon-jong achieved 7 wins in the season with 7 scoreless innings and perfect pitches, and a new record for the most starts in his career with 164 individual starts (previously 163 starts and tied with Song Jin-woo).

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said after the game, “The concentration after the second in the other line was good. Park Chan-ho created chances and even solved the problem himself. Kim Do-young also seems to have regained his confidence with the 3-hit game. From Na Seong-beom to Socrates, the main hitters also led the team’s offense well, making hits at every chance. Na Seong-beom’s three-run home run decided the game.”

If you’re not hurt, challenge for 40 homers in the season? Na Seong-beom’s home run production pace is terrifying
Na Seong-beom returned to the first team after mid-June due to a long-term calf injury this season. However, Na Seong-beom has played in 44 games since returning to the first team, showing a batting average of 0.349 / 60 hits / 13 homers / 42 RBIs / on-base percentage of 0.411 / slugging percentage of 0.645.

In particular, his overwhelming home run production pace, hitting 13 home runs in 44 games, stands out. If Na Seong-beom had completed the season without injury, he would be able to challenge for the 40th home run in the season.

After the game that day, Na Seong-beom said, “It’s fortunate that I seem to be maintaining a good hitting feeling lately. As a team-centered hitter, he focused on producing RBIs in a chance situation, which led to good results, and he scored 5 RBIs today and is happy to help the team win.”

Na Seong-beom continued, “In today’s game, rather than saying I did well, I was able to play a good game because the table setter created many chances. I want to say thanks to his fellow players. Thank you so many KIA fans for coming to the baseball field today, and I will do my best in every game so that I can maintain this good atmosphere for a long time.”
