Choi Hyung-woo followed by Kim Sun-bin’s pinch hit card… Kim Jong-guk’s victory was washed away by the rain

 KIA lost the season opener against SSG held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 1st without hitting the lineup. However, on the 2nd, after the batting line showed concentration from the beginning of the game, they won 9-5 and reported their first win of the season.

It was crucial to score 6 points only in the 4th inning메이저사이트 when the match was 2-2, and at that decisive moment, there was a ‘pinch hit card’. In the 4th inning, lead Byun Woo-hyuk’s walk, Lee Chang-jin’s left-handed hit, and Kim Ho-ryeong’s bunt infield hit made the bases loaded safely, and the first run of the day was brought out from the bases loaded with one out. It was Choi Hyeong-woo, a pinch hitter.

On this day, KIA had Hwang Dae-in as the designated hitter, Byeon Woo-hyuk as the first baseman, and Choi Hyeong-woo on the bench. In the 4th inning, it is about the middle of the game, but coach Kim thought of exhausting Choi Hyung-woo’s card early in the best chance of a run with the bases loaded.

The result was a great success. It was like a veteran. He faced a disadvantageous count against his first pitcher (Kirk McCarty), but eventually attacked the breaking ball and hit a timely 2 RBI hit in front of the right fielder. After hitting the hit, Choi Hyeong-woo went straight to work with a successful result, and after this timely hit, KIA scored 4 more points and took control of the charter.

Coach Kim Jong-guk’s bold pinch-hit strategy also shined in the match against kt in Suwon on the 4th. KIA, who gave 1 point first in the 3rd inning, took the opportunity to secure 1st and 2nd bases safely with a ball hit by Choi Hyeong-woo and a walk by Byun Woo-hyuk in the 4th inning, which was behind 0-1. In a situation where Lee Chang-jin was withdrawn due to a floating ball in left field, when catcher Joo Hyo-sang came to bat, kt changed pitcher to left-hander Park Se-jin.

It was also the 4th inning, so in a situation where the future game was uncertain, coach Kim took out the veteran Kim Sun-bin card, who was also waiting on the bench. Kim Seon-bin, who sprained his left ankle during the base run against Incheon SSG on the 1st, was absent from the starting lineup on the 4th following a missed game on the 2nd. He judged that the defense was still unreasonable. However, there was no problem digesting one at-bat, and Kim Seon-bin lived up to the expectations of the bench with a timely double hit next to the left fielder.

Although the games are different, both games were similar in that the veteran cards Choi Hyeong-woo and Kim Seon-bin, who had been waiting on the bench, were put into the match at a relatively early point in the 4th inning and achieved great success.

This was not the end. KIA put in Lee Woo-sung, and Lee Woo-sung successfully finished the pinch hit operation once again with two RBIs and timely hits that fell under the glove of third baseman Hwang Jae-gyun against Cho Yi-hyun, who came out to catch him.

However, it did not lead to two consecutive victories. The rain that had been falling since the start of the game intensified after KIA reversed in the 4th inning. The judges, who judged that a normal game was difficult, stopped the game ahead of the kt attack in the 4th inning, and to KIA’s savagery, the rain did not abate. The match ended in a no game.
