KT Wiz created excitement with consecutive victories on the away road to Busan. KT beat the Lotte Giants 7-3 at Sajik Stadium on the 8th.
Following the 7-1 victory the previous day (7th), we laughed thanks to Wes Benjamin’s pitching, which was responsible for pitching with 3 runs in 6 innings, starting with a lineup that focused on concentration. In particular, Kang Baek-ho, who came out to bat with a 5-3 lead, hit a runaway two-run home run that was decisive.
Lotte bench put left-handed pitcher Lee Tae-yeon on메이저놀이터 the mound to face left-handed batters Kim Min-hyuk and Kang Baek-ho in the inning. However, Kim Min-hyeok and Kang Baek-ho attacked Lee Tae-yeon well with hits and home runs, respectively.
From the Lotte bench point of view, Lee Tae-yeon’s card did not work well. Kang Baek-ho showed a good hitting feeling from the first at-bat that day.
He went on base with a hit against Lotte starting pitcher Dan Strayley and scored the first run. He struck out in the second at-bat in the top of the second inning, but scored an RBI with a sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth inning and tasted it in the top of the seventh.
In the last at-bat in the top of the 9th inning, he picked a walk and reached 3 bases. After the game with Lotte, he looked back on the home run situation, saying, “Rather than aiming for the pitch, the timing of the hit was a little late in the game yesterday (7th), so I set the timing to the front from practice today (7th), and it led to good results.”
He added, “The current condition is really good.”
He also said hello to the fans. Kang Baek-ho said, “I could hear the fans cheering from far away from Busan, and it really helped me.” “I want to feel the joy of winning the team one more time this year. I want to come as a team.”
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol was satisfied, saying, “Benjamin laid the foundation for victory by blocking the opponent’s batting line well with minimal runs even in rather cold weather.”
Coach Lee also said, “I was able to bring the atmosphere by showing concentration in the center of the batting line at the beginning of the game.” Thank you to the fans who came to support the game,” he said.
The two teams will play on the last day of the weekend’s three-game series at the same location on the 9th. Bae Jae-seong (KT) and Na Kyun-an (Lotte) were announced as starting pitchers, respectively.
