KT outfielder Kang Baek-ho provided an excuse for a reversal beyond the tie with an insincere throw.
On the 18th at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League LG Twins and KT Wiz faced off for the 5th season.
It was defense at the end of the 5th inning with KT leading 3-2. Starter Koh Young-pyo got a left-handed hit from leader Park Hae-min, and then met Kim Hyeon-soo, who was the follow-up, and allowed a right-handed hit on the first pitch. Right fielder Kang Baek-ho caught the ball, and first base runner Park Hae-min quickly passed second base and headed for third base.
A safe first and third base situation was expected, but the result was Park Hae-min’s score. Kang Baek-ho, who expected that Park Hae-min would stop at third base, made a high-parabolic throw to second baseman Jang Joon-won, and Park Hae-min took advantage of the gap and stepped on the groove. Jang Jun-won, who belatedly caught the throw, looked at home, but it was after Park Hae-min had already scored. It was a painful 3-3 tie.
Ko Young-pyo, whose morale had fallen, was shaken sharply. With Oh Ji-Hwan’s double and Moon Bo-Kyung’s automatic 4-pitch, Park Dong-Won, Park Dong-Won’s opponent, 2 RBIs, and Lee Jae-Won’s 1 RBI, hit a timely hit and dedicated a turnaround. Afterwards, in the crisis that continued with Kim Min-sung’s hits, Park Hae-min again hit the right time with one RBI. Koh Young-pyo replaced Joo Kwon.
KT, who had a 3-2 lead, is currently trailing 3-8 at the end of the 5th inning. One of Kang Baek-ho’s complacent defenses served as an excuse for a large number of goals 토토사이트.
