Stealing → Hit & Run → Wild Fighting → 1st Base Containment Hit… Lotte’s meticulous strategy baseball, KT raged
Could it be because he was badly beaten by Go Young-pyo? Against Eom Sang-baek, the batting line exploded. I was lucky, but the tactical baseball that hit like a wave was impressive.
In the second game of the weekend series against KT Wiz held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 13th, the Lotte Giants defeated opponent starter Eom Sang-baek with 5 runs in 5 innings and won 5-0.
KT Eom Sang-baek only allowed 1 run in 17 innings in 3 games in April. However, he was sluggish with 5 runs in 4 innings against the Hanwha Eagles on the 7th, the first game in May, and on this day also scored 5 runs in 5 innings.
It was an unexpected result at the beginning of the first inning. On this day, Lotte put forward an unconventional batting order of ‘Han Dong-hee No. 2’, but the first inning ended with a 3-way offense.
However, Lotte’s attack at the beginning of the second inning made a 4-point big inning and completely overpowered the initial baseline.
At the beginning of the second inning, lead hitter An Chi-hong went on base with a hit, and Jeon Jun-woo was out with a fly ball in the outfield. However, in the process, KT center fielder Hong Hyun-bin and right fielder Cho Yong-ho collided lightly, and there was an almost dangerous scene.
An Chi-hong then succeeded in stealing second base. KT catcher Kim Joon-tae stole the pitcher’s timing so perfectly that he couldn’t even throw the ball to second base.
Noh Jin-hyeok’s hit in front of the right fielder gave him 1 out and 1st and 3rd base. Here comes the hit and run. Batter Ko Seung-min made a miss, but Noh Jin-hyeok succeeded in stealing second base. Kim Jun-tae’s throw was inaccurate.먹튀검증

With a timely hit in front of center fielder Koh Seung-min, Lotte took the lead. While Hong Hyun-bin threw home, Seung-min Ko ran to second base without hesitation. The chances of 1 company, 2nd and 3rd continued.
Eom Sang-baek, who lost concentration, gave up the second point with a wild throw. Eom Sang-baek is a pitcher who has only made two wild pitches in the past three years. It was literally a scene that I should see once a year. He recorded his first wide shot of the season in five games.
In the ensuing 1 out 3 base, Yoo Gang-nam’s ground ball rolled between the pitcher and 1st base like a squeeze bunt, and Ko Seung-min, the 3rd base runner, stepped home.
However, Lotte’s attack did not end like this. Following Kim Min-soo’s hit and Yoon Dong-hee’s walk, Han Dong-hee struck a timely hit between the 1st and 2nd bases, making the score 4-0 in an instant.
Eom Sang-baek finished the 3rd inning with a 3-run, but faced another crisis in the 4th inning by allowing lead batter Koh Seung-min to hit the right fence with a 3-base hit. Kangnam Yoo’s sacrifice fly resulted in a solid 5th point.
In the 5th inning, he faced a crisis with 2 out 1st and 2nd base, but he managed to finish the 5th inning by striking out Noh Jin-hyeok. The number of pitches was 98, of which 41 were thrown in only two innings. From the 6th inning, he passed the mound to Lee Seon-woo.
On the other hand, Han Hyun-hee of Lotte made a contrast by enduring 6 innings without conceding even though she faced a crisis every time without a third-party offense. Alford’s straight hit to second base at the end of the first inning led to a double-out, and in the second inning, lead batter Moon Sang-cheol got a hit, but Kim Joon-tae induced a double hit.
At the end of the 3rd inning, lead hitter Hong Hyun-bin was allowed a double in the middle left, leading to a crisis with 2nd and 3rd base. However, Jo Yong-ho’s hit ball between the 1st and 2nd bases was overcome by An Chi-hong’s diving catch to ground the ball.

The most impressive was the bottom of the 4th inning. Kang Baek-ho got a knockout, and Alford got on base with a hit and got 1st and 2nd base safely.
Here, the Lotte defense team and Han Hyun-hee showed organic movements and suddenly caught Alford at first base. KT’s pursuit atmosphere was broken in one shot. Moon Sang-cheol got a walk, but no follow-up hit.
Han Hyun-hee allowed two walks in the 5th inning and a hit to Moon Sang-cheol in the 6th inning, but was replaced after blocking the KT lineup without conceding. He had 4 hits and 4 walks, but his 6 strikeouts stood out at every critical moment. The help of Han Dong-hee and Ahn Chi-hong was also impressive.
