Club record in 12 years… ‘Excellent Hyeonsu’ Legend Pujols Summoned
He is an amazing man. Tommy Hyeon-su Edman (28, St. Louis Cardinals) gave the team a winning series by hitting a walk-off hit and a home run for two days in a row.
Edmon started as the first batter in center field in the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the San Diego Padres held at St. Louis Busch Stadium in Missouri on the 31st (Korean time).
On this day, Edmund played a big role in karate. After he went on base, he stole 3 bases in a single day as a storm stealer.
The highlight was the last at-bat. In the bottom of the 9th inning, when the team was trailing 3-4, with 2nd out and 2nd base, he hit opponent’s finisher Josh Hader’s sinker and hit a walk-off home run (season 12) over the right wall, giving the team a 5-4 victory. The ball flew 387 feet (about 117.9 m) with a launch angle of 27 degrees at a speed of 100.1 miles (about 161 km) per hour.
Edmund’s final score was 4 at-bats, 1 hit (1 home run), 2 RBIs, 1 walk and 1 run. The team had only a 14.2% chance of winning before Edmon’s turn at bat, but made a thrilling come-from-behind victory with a single swing.
Even the day before (against San Diego on the 30th), Edmon’s performance was brilliant. In the bottom of the 10th inning, when the game was tied 5-5, he hit Hader with a sinker on first out, first and third base, and hit the end hit. A new record was set when the same hitter made an end play to the same pitcher two days in a row.
It is the first time in 12 years since Albert Pujols (VS Chicago Cubs) on June 4-5, 2011, that St. Louis club history has made two consecutive end plays. He etched his name into the history of his team.메이저놀이터
Edmund played in 111 games this year and recorded a batting average of 0.241 (91 hits in 378 at-bats), 12 homers, 41 RBIs, 20 stolen bases, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.713. His main position is an infielder, but he is also a multi-player talent and is also an outfielder.
He is energizing the St. Louis lineup with his sophisticated contact skills, one-hit long drive, quick feet, and excellent defense.
In an interview with MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball after the game, Edman said, “Haider has a really good fastball, so I didn’t think about anything else. I tried to hit it as short as possible, and it was really fun when I accidentally hit a home run.” revealed
Meanwhile, Kim Ha-seong also participated in the game that day and had a lead-off confrontation with Edmund. He went 4-for-2 with 1 RBI and 1 run, but had to turn around in a dreary loss due to the team’s ending loss.
