Son’s hitting streak comes to an end despite his own slide

Lotte infielder Son Ho-young (30)’s 30-game hitting streak has come to an end.

Son started as the No. 3 designated hitter against Kiwoom in the 2024 KBO League at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Nov. 21, but was unable to get a hit, ending his streak at 30 games.

Prior to this game, Son had hit in 30 consecutive games. Son, who has recorded a hit in every game since April 17 against LG Electronics in Jamsil, tied for third place with Kim Jae-hwan (Doosan) in this category with his 30th consecutive hit against KT on April 20.

A hit on that day would have tied Park Jung-tae’s (retired) 31-game streak, the longest in Lotte history and the longest in a single season, set by Park in 1999.

Son was quiet in his first three at-bats. In the top of the first, he hit a fastball to right field. In the fourth inning, he drew a walk after a nine-pitch battle with Kiwoom starter Enmanuel De Jesus.

After hitting a fastball to shortstop in the top of the sixth inning, Son took advantage of a favorable pitch count in the top of the eighth inning, which was actually his last at-bat of the day. The ball rolled in front of the second baseman, allowing Hwang Sung-bin to score from third base. It was Lotte’s first run of the day.

Son Ho-young was called out for 토토 a “head-first” slide after running all the way to first base. Video review was requested by Lotte, but the call was upheld.

The inning almost ended with one more at-bat. Hwang Sung-bin reached on an infield single with two outs, putting runners on the corners for Go Seung-min, who was batting right in front of Son Ho-young. Son stepped to the plate.

However, with runners on second and third, Go Seung-min’s high fly ball was snagged by Dawson in left field, ending his chance for an extra base hit. That ended his hitting streak at 30 consecutive games.

Son’s baseball career has blossomed since he was traded for Lotte pitcher Woo Kang-hoon in a one-for-one deal on March 30th of this season. He hadn’t gotten 파워볼실시간 much of a chance at his former team, LG, due to its thick roster, but with Lotte, he began to be utilized.

He hasn’t disappointed since mid-April, getting a hit in every game. His batting average this season is 0.324 (55 hits in 170 at-bats).

The longest consecutive-game hitting streak in history is 39 games by Park Jong-ho (retired). Jong-ho produced hits in 39 consecutive games from August 29, 2003, against Suwon Doosan, when he was with the Hyundai Unicorns, to April 21, 2004, when he moved to Samsung.
