KT, who missed victory in ‘Eom Sangbaek QS+’… How did director Lee Kang-chul see it?
Consecutive defeat after winning streak, KT Wiz had to face a scenario they did not want. It was a disappointing loss for both the players and the coaching staff.
KT lost 2-6 in the home game against the KIA Tigers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 7th. The ride of 7th place KT and 8th place KIA, who fell into two consecutive losses, completely disappeared, and depending on the results of the 8th match, changes in the leaderboard may occur.
The flow was tight until the middle of the game. Starting pitcher Eom Sang-baek showed pitching that exceeded expectations by achieving Quality Start Plus (QS+) with 4 hits, 2 walks, 6 strikeouts and 2 runs in 7 innings.
However, the scoring support of the other line was not supported, and only one point was scored in the second and third innings. Opponent starter Kim Kon-guk was knocked out early at the end of the 1st inning due to a ‘headshot exit’ at 2nd and 3rd base, but KT was unable to dig into this empty gap. Eventually, after Eom Sang-baek went down, the bullpen collapsed as it dedicated 1 point in the 8th inning and 3 points in the 9th.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Yesterday (7th), Eom Sang-baek led well, but there was no one to stop the 8th inning,” said KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, ahead of the KIA game on the 8th. “Everything,” I looked back.
In addition, “In the case of Jang Seong-woo and Bae Jeong-dae, it seems that all the fences were hit, but the wind blew. (Rather) We gave two because of the wind. They said the wind was very strong. At the beginning of the second inning, Park Chan-ho hit 1 RBI and 2 bases. Hitting a . was blown away. Right fielder Ahn Chi-young also had no experience, but I couldn’t say anything about it.
KT, who needs to recover from the shock of the previous day’s defeat, is Kim Min-hyeok (right fielder) – Bae Jung-dae (center fielder) – Hwang Jae-kyun (3rd baseman) – Jang Seong-woo (catcher) – Moon Sang-cheol (designated hitter) – Anthony Alford (left fielder) – Oh Yoon-seok (1st baseman) – The lineup was organized in the order of Jang Jun-won (shortstop) and Lee Sang-ho (second baseman).
There are big and small changes in the starting lineup. Park Byeong-ho, who had collided with Kim Gyu-seong the previous day at first base, and Kim Sang-su, who is feeling fatigue in his right calf, were dropped from the starting lineup. Veteran infielder Park Kyung-soo was excluded from the starting lineup for management reasons. In the case of Park Kyung-soo, he can play as a substitute in the second half of the game. Alford, who has not been feeling well lately, was placed at number 6 due to batting order adjustment.카지노
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “I think I’ll know when I go to the second half of the game. It’s so hard to be sick now. I think I need to take ‘preemptive measures’.” I’m thinking of not using Kim Sang-soo if possible. I have a thought that I don’t want to leave unreasonable numbers. I just want to win.”
Young-Pyo Ko, the ‘local ace’, who was in charge of the starting lineup to escape from two consecutive losses, has a heavy burden on his shoulders. Coach Lee Kang-cheol expressed his anticipation for the starting pitcher’s good pitch, saying, “It won’t be easy, but he held the axis well by breaking the winning streak and losing streak. Thank you, he’s doing well. I hope (starter) Ko Young-pyo can lead him well.”
