A firepower show in front of a crowd of 10,000 won… KIA defeats SSG and ranks 4th with 8 consecutive wins
For two consecutive days, Incheon SSG Landers Park was filled with 10,000 won spectators.
A fierce firefight took place between KIA and SSG that cooled off even the late heat.
The team that showed off a little more firepower was KIA.메이저놀이터
When KIA scores, SSG follows up with a home run, and when KIA runs away again, SSG responds with a home run.
In the 1st, 2nd, and 5th innings, both teams alternated between offense and defense, trading scores back and forth.
SSG’s pursuit of KIA’s lead first took a turn in the bottom of the 5th inning, when Choi Jeong hit his 25th two-run home run of the season, giving the team a comeback for the first time, and the mood seemed to be leaning towards SSG.
However, in the top of the 8th inning, KIA’s Kim Tae-gun and pinch hitter Ko Jong-wook made a comeback by getting timely hits against SSG’s impregnable closer Seo Jin-yong.
In the top of the 9th inning, Kim Do-young hit a wedge home run, breaking SSG’s fighting spirit and giving KIA a refreshing 8-game winning streak.
<Kim Tae-gun / KIA Tigers> “Because my position is a catcher, I always have doubts and when things are going well, I have to think of the basics as important, so I’m preparing to not get excited as much as possible.”
Hanwha’s Moon Dong-ju, a strong Rookie of the Year candidate, had a somewhat disappointing final game of the season.
Moon Dong-ju, who made his final start of the season in an away game against leader LG, allowed 11 hits and 3 runs in 4 1/3 innings.
In his second year as a professional, his record was 8 wins, 8 losses, and an earned run average of 3.72.
Moon Dong-ju will be called up to the Hangzhou Asian Games national team on the 22nd after training and resting in the second team.
Moon Dong-ju posted a disappointing report card, but Hanwha’s batting lineup showed strength and defeated leader LG for two days in a row.
KT, which was doing well in August with a win rate of over 80%, was held back by Kiwoom, the lowest ranked team, and recorded three consecutive losses, including a sweep of three consecutive weekend games.
