Is the ‘Tess hyung’ we used to know finally back?

The bat of Socrates Brito, a foreign hitter for the KIA Tigers, is unusual. He has driven in three home runs in his last four games. His batting average during the week also exceeded 40%, and his bat seemed to be on fire.

It was Socrates whose concerns were greater than expected. His batting average for the month of April was 207.8 li. It was a better start than last year, when rumors of him being kicked out early due to his poor batting average of .228. Of the 25 hits he made in 90 at-bats during the month of April, only 5 balls (3 doubles, 2 home runs) were more than doubles. It is a figure that is never satisfactory when thinking about the weight of a foreign hitter who has to play the role of a solver in the center of the batting line. KIA coach Kim Jong-guk also expressed his concern, saying, “I need a long hit.”

The match between the KIA Tigers and the Samsung Lions was held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 16th. In the top of the 7th inning, Socrates with 1 out, 1st and 3rd base hits a 3-run home run and is congratulated by Kim Sun-bin. 스포츠토토

This trend continued in May. He made 9 hits in 8 games over 2 weeks, but only 2 extra-base hits. Last year, his first year in the KBO League, he increased his pace from the end of April and exploded in May, but this year his pace was particularly slow. KIA, which had a win rate of 50%, continued to struggle.

This thirst seems to have been quenched at the Daegu Samsung Match, which ended with a winning series. He found his confidence when he got his first taste of this month as a three-runner in the 16th game. The next day, Socrates, who also fired two runs, returned to Gwangju and recorded multiple hits for two days in a row. In the game on the 20th, he contributed to the team’s 4th consecutive victory by adding a double hit following the come-from-behind final two-run four.

In the meantime, Socrates’ biggest problem has been focused on the psychological part. Even if he made a hit, it was only a single hit, and the anxiety that he could not add strength to the team’s batting line led to a drop in confidence. However, it seems to be gradually creating synergy as it has recently started to drive.

Socrates’ batting average reached a whopping 40.15 li in the month of May last year. After that, in June, it showed a good figure with a 304p4, continuing the trend. On July 2nd, in the match against SSG in Incheon, he stopped while suffering a facial fracture from a sand dune, but you can see that he hit the bottom and continued the flow steadily.
