KT Wiz, who is aiming to rise to the top, succeeded in escaping from losing streak. If there was anything that made me feel as good as winning, it was Kang Baek-ho’s performance.
In the home game against NC Dinos in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Changwon NC Park on the 13th, KT won a 10-3 victory and ended its three-game losing streak.
Cho Yi-hyeon, who fulfilled the replacement selection task, led the team to victory with 4 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and 1 run in 4⅓ innings.
In the other line, as many as four players performed multi-hit activities. Kang Baek-ho was one of them. He started right field twice and went 3-for-5 with 1 RBI and 2 runs.
Kang Baek-ho, who had been silent in the previous two at-bats due to strikeouts and fly balls, made an infield hit in the third at-bat in the fifth inning. He sprinted after sending the batted ball into the third interval and arrived at first base before the ball. When Moon Sang-chul’s sacrifice fly, he stepped on the groove and even scored.
He also gave up hits in the sixth and eighth innings, completing a three-hit game. It was the first three-hit game in 12 days since the opening game against the LG Twins on the 1st. At the beginning of the 8th inning, he finished his duties when he was replaced with the runner Min-seop Song.
There was one other thing that stood out besides the three-hit performance on this day.
that’s the position Right fielder Cho Yong-ho, who was suffering from sluggishness ahead of the game, was canceled from the first team entry, and rookie Jung Joon-young was called up. The team had to change the starting lineup.
Kang Baek-ho, who started as the designated hitter the previous day, started the game as the starting right fielder for the first time since the start of this season. It has been 694 days since the Suwon Doosan Bears match on May 19, 2021. He didn’t have a tricky hit, but he did his job well.
Kang Baek-ho had his worst season last year due to injuries and sluggishness. His annual salary, which was 550 million won, was cut to 290 million won. I had to bow my head to his performance that didn’t live up to his expectations. The team, which advanced to the postseason for three consecutive years, knelt down to the Kiwoom Heroes in the semi-playoffs with 2 wins and 3 losses.
I feel good from the start of this year.토스카지노 He recorded 13 hits in 34 at-bats, 0.382, 2 home runs and 8 RBIs over 8 games, and recorded a hit in every game except for the match against the Lotte Giants on the 7th. It has been picking up the pace from the beginning of the season to the extent that there are 4 games that have achieved multi-hits.
After the game against Lotte on the 9th, even during the period when the team lost three straight games, he consistently recorded hits and proved his worth. This is a season in which both the team and the player want to soar higher.
