kt is struggling with a toxic injury at the beginning of this season. The place where the injured evil spirit found is not limited to one position.
Starting with Min-soo Kim and Ju-kwon, the key resources of the bullpen, leaving without even starting, Joon So-jun is missing from the starting lineup, and Sang-baek Eom has just returned. In the outfield, the batting team was missing due to injury, and recently, Hwang Jae-gyun was hit by his foul ball and went to the injured list. There were also many injuries that occurred during the game without intention.온라인바카라
One or two key players are always missing during the season. If the player base is thick, there are cases where it fills in without a big gap. However, it is not easy to find a large number of key players missing like kt. Nevertheless, kt has a win rate of more than 50%. This is because alternative resources are working hard to fill the positions of existing players.
In the bullpen, Dong-Hyun Son, Young-Hyun Kim, and Lee-Hyeon Cho are exerting their strength, and the vacancy in the batting team was bolstered by Kim Min-Hyuk recording a high batting average of over 30%. Here, Hwang Jae-gyun’s vacancy is also in the midst of a struggle. Shin Bong-ki played a big role in the match against SSG in Suwon on the 18th, getting 3 hits and 4 balls, including a double.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol praised the overall performance of the backup players ahead of the match against SSG in Suwon on the 19th, laughing at Shinbongi’s blow. Director Lee said, “Since the pitcher is Ko Young-pyo, I tried to strengthen it defensively. But from there, he hit well,” and praised him highly, saying, “This machine played a very important role.”
In a situation where Hwang Jae-gyun’s return point has not yet been decided, Shin Bong-gi’s performance continued on the 19th. On the 19th, Shin Bong-gi started as a starting 8th third baseman against Suwon SSG, and scored a solo home run against Park Jong-hoon in the 3rd inning, which was his first at-bat, providing a valuable additional point for the team.
It was a 1-0, 1-run lead, but from this home run, the kt lineup gained strength again, and they scored 4 runs in the 3rd inning and ran away with a 5-point lead to seize the victory. Coach Lee Kang-cheol also highly evaluated the importance of this home run after the game, saying, “I was able to bring the atmosphere of the game with the first score in the first inning and Shin Bong-gi’s home run.”
There was another brilliant backup member. In the 8th inning, leading 5-0, kt was in danger of chasing. He got a right-handed hit from the leader, Hanyu-seom, and allowed Jeon Eui-san to hit a double through the left middle, making it safe for second and third base. Although they were ahead by 5 points, it was natural that they would be chased if both runners entered. Besides, it was unharmed.
First of all, Cho Hyung-woo induced a grounder on third base and sighed, but Choi Ji-hoon’s batted ball did not. It flew sharply in the direction of center field. It was the batting speed and trajectory that anyone could intuit the hit. However, rookie Jung Joon-young, who went into great defense, quickly jumped out and threw his body to catch it.
Runners on 2nd and 3rd base could of course be expected to hit, and it was not unreasonable to think that way. It was an outcount that happened in an instant with the batted ball speed, and in the end, the runners were tied up without even being able to tag up. KT was able to go to the 9th without conceding a run thanks to Jung Joon-young’s defense in the 8th.
Considering that Park Young-hyun, who used a lot of strength in the 8th inning, gave up 2 runs after allowing a crisis after a walk and a hit in the 9th, this one defense was very decisive for the victory (5-2 win). Hwang Jae-kyun’s long hitting power was replaced by Shin Bon-ki, and Bae Jeong-dae’s defensive power was filled by Jung Joon-young. A strong team is not easily shaken.
