Kang Baek-ho’s absurd throwing of Arirang in ‘Did you forget you were in last place?’
KT Wiz outfielder Kang Baek-ho’s clumsy defense eventually resulted in a double defeat.
KT lost 5-9 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League LG Twins game held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 18th.
On this day, KT started the game pleasantly, leading 3-2 until the 5th inning. However, one defense provided an excuse for a large number of points and collapsed. Kang Baek-ho’s Arirang throw at the end of the 5th episode caused a stir.
The situation came out of a safe first base situation. Kim Hyun-soo’s hit landed in front of right fielder Kang Baek-ho, and Park Hae-min, a quick first base runner, reached third base.
But here comes an absurd apology. Kang Baek-ho threw the ball to the second baseman, and it was an Arirang throw that drew a large parabola. Even that wasn’t accurate.
In the meantime, Park Hae-min ran home. In the end, KT allowed a 3-3 tie.
The problem did not end here. KT and starter Koh Young-pyo, who allowed an absurd run, began to collapse from this point on.
After one out, KT allowed Oh Ji-hwan to hit a double and Mun Bo-gyeong to automatically and intentionally 4 pitches, allowing the bases to be loaded. Then, Park Dong-won, who was in full swing, allowed a sweeping 3 RBI double, and was reversed. 토스카지노
As if the shock had not gone away, Ko Young-pyo gave Lee Jae-won an additional timely hit and bowed his head. After that, he gave up a hit to Kim Min-seong and a timely hit to Park Hae-min, conceding 6 runs in the 5th inning alone. Koh Young-pyo became a losing pitcher with 8 runs in 4⅔innings.
KT started chasing after that, but could not overcome the score difference that had already occurred. Kang Baek-ho saved face with a timely hit in the 8th inning, but it was not enough, and Park Byeong-ho fired a solo gun in the 9th inning and narrowed the gap to 4 points, but the score gap was too large.
In the end, Kang Baek-ho’s absurd defense changed the flow, and KT’s winning series and rebound from last place were also ruined. The winning rate was also 0.294 (10 wins, 24 losses), and it failed to return to the 30% win rate.
