“Fall baseball in 15 games… There are still 100 games left”
KT Wiz achieved a winning series in one month thanks to Jang Seong-woo’s 4 RBIs.
KT won 7-3 in the home game against Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 21st, and achieved a winning series in three consecutive matches against Doosan. KT recorded a winning series in about a month after the SSG Landers match held on April 18-20.
The performance of Jang Seong-woo, the ‘five hitter of fear’, stood out. On this day, Jang Seong-woo led the team to victory by hitting 2 RBIs and timely hits including a 2-run homer. Jang Seong-woo, who had been somewhat sluggish with a batting average of 0.219, 0 home run and 3 RBIs in the last 10 games, swept 4 RBIs that day to lead the team’s victory and winning series. 메이저놀이터
After the game, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “We showed active offense in the top and bottom batting lines along with the performance of veterans in the batting line.” Jang Seong- woo said,
“I think the game has become difficult as no points have been scored in the recent scoring situation.” In fact, KT put a lot of pressure on Jang Seong-woo due to rope injuries to Park Byeong-ho and Hwang Jae-gyun at the beginning of the season.
With the victory on this day, KT narrowed the gap between the 9th place Hanwha Eagles (13 wins, 24 losses and 3 draws) with 12 wins, 25 losses and 2 draws to one game. There is a difference of 7 games from the 5th place (Doosan) in the fall baseball league and 12.5 games from the 1st place. Jang Seong-woo said, “There are still more than 100 games left. Last year, I went up to fall baseball from the 15th game car,” he said.
