Kiwoom Heroes’ Lee Jung-hoo made a big success with 3 hits, but LG Twins’ Park Dong-won showed off his superpower by sweeping 4 RBIs alone and couldn’t decide the game in the end.
Kiwoom drew 5-5 with LG after 12 overtime matches in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 28th. It was a bloody battle of 4 hours and 27 minutes. Kiwoom allowed KT Wiz, who defeated the Lotte Giants that day, to tie for 8th place, and LG maintained 2nd place with 1st place SSG Landers by one and a half games.
In Kiwoom, Lee Jung-hoo continued the upward trend with a batting average of 0.421 in 5 games in June. He batted third and went 3-for-3 with 2 runs scored, 1 RBI and 3 walks, including a solo home run. He raised his batting average to 0.280 with a 10-game hitting streak. LG’s attack was led by Park Dong-won, who struggled with a two-run home run and a come-from-behind two-run double.
LG took the lead first. Kiwoom starter Ariel Hurado hit the bases safely with Austin, Park Dong-won, and Oh Ji-hwan getting on base with an error, walk, and bunt hit, respectively, and Lee Joo-hyung scored his first RBI with an infield grounder.토토사이트
Kiwoom immediately counterattacked. In the bottom of the second inning, Lee Ji-young surpassed the center fielder’s height and scored her first triple of the season. Third baseman Moon Bo-gyeong caught Lee Hyung-jong’s assault ball, but the throw missed and allowed the score to tie. In the 3rd episode, Lee Jung-hoo fired the 6th solo arch of the season and succeeded in a 2-1 comeback.
The run score also came from Lee Jung-hoo’s bat. In the bottom of the 6th inning, he technically countered Adam Plutko’s low breaking ball and landed a double on the inside of the right line. Afterwards, Song Seong-moon’s timely hit broke out, and he hit home again. However, in the top of the 8th inning, Park Dong-won, the ‘home run leader’, hit a tying two-run home run over the left fence against pitcher Won Jong-hyun, who had changed in the top of the 8th inning, and took the game into extra time.
In the 12th inning with the score tied 3-3, LG took the lead as Park Dong-won called in Moon Bo-kyung and Austin, who went on base due to a walk and shortstop error, with a long hit. In Kiwoom’s attack, Lee Jeong-hoo got the third walk, and pinch hitter Kim Soo-hwan crossed the left-middle fence against Jin Hae-su to balance the game 5-5. The game ended as it was with no additional goals scored.
