The KIA Tigers won 7-6 against the SSG Landers of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on June 6.
KIA gave up a run in the top of the first inning, but battled back in the top of the second with an RBI single by Choi Hyung-woo and an RBI double by Kim Tae-gun. They added four runs in the fourth inning on RBI singles by Kim Tae-gun, Kim Kyu-sung, and Park Chan-ho. In the fifth inning, Choi Hyung-woo hit a one-run home run to seal the win.
However, in the eighth inning, SSG began to pull away. With the bases loaded, Choi Joo-hwan hit a ball against Jeon Sang-hyun that went to second baseman Kim Kyu-sung. However, Kim Gyu-sung’s throwing error allowed Kim Chan-hyung and Kang Jin-sung to come home. Kim Min-sik then flied out to center field, but Kim Sung-hyun tagged up and advanced to third.
With runners on first and third, Choi Ji-min came to the plate. He gave up a single to Choo Shin-soo and then walked Choi Ji-hoon on a pitch to the body. With Choi shaky, head coach Kim Jong-kook came to the mound. He gathered the infielders and talked to Choi and came down. He then got Han Yoo-seom to fly out to center field. Guillermo Heredia gave up a two-run single to cut the deficit to 7-6, but reliever Jang Hyun-sik got Choi Jun-woo to fly out to center field to end the game.Manager Kim Jong-kook met with reporters before the Suwon KT Wiz game on Sunday and opened up about the situation on the mound. “Last year, I think I went up there once or twice, but this year was my first time,” he said. “I think (Choi) Jimin was a little more nervous because he’s not an experienced pitcher. (Kim) Kyu-sung was the same way, so I just said something to calm the infielders down.”
“I didn’t order anything in particular. I went up there to make them feel psychologically stable. I felt that not only the pitchers but also the infielders needed to be better prepared,” he added.
The KIA lineup against KT on July 7 was Choi Won-jun (center field), Kim Do-young (third base), Na Sung-beom (right field), Choi Hyung-woo (designated hitter), Hwang Dae-in (first base), Socrates Brito (left field), Kim Tae-gun (catcher), Kim Kyu-sung (second base), and Park Chan-ho (shortstop). The starting pitcher is Kim Gun-guk.
Kim made his first start on April 1 against the LG Twins in Jamsil. It was his first start in 1479 days, and he went 2⅔ innings, allowing two runs (two earned) on two hits with two walks and one strikeout.
“He (Kim) pitched three innings in the last game. If he can pitch four innings in this game, he’s doing well. He did well in the last game, but I hope he can throw one more inning today.” All pitchers in the bullpen are available except Jang Hyun-sik.
