Bears cleanup hitter, Kim Jae-hwan, is a vital part of the team’s line-up. He could drive in runs. However, he doesn’t have a monopoly on the RBIs in the roster. He sees himself as part of the team and not just the cleanup hitter.
In the press conference after Game 2 of their best-of-five series against KT Wiz, Kim said that the Doosan Bears has several great hitters. The guys have his full confidence. Also, he will do whatever the scenario needs.
According to Doosan Bears betting reports, Kim was 2-out-of-4 last Monday against KT Wiz. Also, he had a single RBI. He was 1-out-of-7 without an RBI in the series against LG Twins. In recent years, Kim was one of the best sluggers in the KBO. In four of the previous five seasons, he had more than 100 runs, including a career-high 133 in 2018.
Bears Cleanup Hitter Happy with Team’s Performance
It was also in 2018 when he was the MVP of the Korea Baseball Organization. According to sports betting odds experts, his averages dropped in 2019. He had 15 home runs and 91 runs-batted-in. However, he regained his form this year, with 30 home runs 113 RBIs.
Based on online gambling South Korea sources, his regular-season slumps were already a distant memory. The postseason is a different ball game. His goal is to concentrate on every at-bat he has during the postseason.
Before the series against KT Wiz, Kim had a postseason batting average of .306 with six home runs and 15 RBIs in 22 appearances. Game 3 will be on Thursday, November 12. His team could sweep the best-of-five series and face NC Dinos in the Korean Series.
The Dinos have been waiting for their opponent since finishing at the top spot of the regular season.
