Anthony Alford, a foreign hitter from kt wiz, left the game.
Alford started안전놀이터 as the third hitter and left fielder in the match against SSG held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 2nd.
Alford opened the scoring with a double in the first inning. After that, Kim Joon-tae’s home run continued his good performance by raising the score.
However, in the beginning of the 3rd inning with a 3-2 lead, he suddenly complained of pain after a 2-ball, 1-strike count as the lead batter. KT checked Alford’s physical condition and immediately replaced him with Kim Min-hyuk.
A KT official explained the reason for the replacement, saying, “Alford felt pain in his right knee at the end of the second inning when he hit a fence while defending a home run hit by Cho Hyung-woo.
Currently, KT is suffering from the evil spirit of injury as main gun Park Byeong-ho also left due to a hamstring injury. He would have been in a very difficult situation if Alford, the nucleus of the other line, was missing.
Meanwhile, KT leads 8-3 thanks to Kim Min-hyeok’s double and Jang Seong-woo’s three-run home run at the end of the 4th inning.
