“I went out in the top of the ninth inning to check if it was a dune (Park Hae-min).”
The dunes came out three times in the final inning. There was even a close call when a batter hit by a dune glared at the pitcher and moved to the mound. Fortunately, there was no collision, but the bench was cleared.
KT Wiz will play the first game of the weekend series against SSG Landers at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 8th.
In an interview before the game, KT Wiz head coach Lee Kang-cheol said about the midweek series against LG (1-2), which was highlighted as a ‘preview of the Korean Series’, “LG is an absolute powerhouse. They’re a really good baseball team.” 메이저사이트
KT gave up nine stolen bases in three days. In the last game, they allowed six. Manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “When he goes out, he runs. Except for Park Dong-won, everyone runs, makes good contact at the plate, and there is no easy hitter. It was great to make in-play hits somehow. It’s been a tough series,” he sighed.
“If I had to pick the strongest team among the 10 teams right now, it would be LG and KIA Tigers. KIA is also fast and has long balls,” he said, adding, “It’s a tough situation for us and SSG today.”
He was coy about the bench clearing situation the day before. When asked, “Did you talk to coach Yeom Kyung-yup?” Lee Kang-cheol said, “I just slept. Nothing happened,” he replied.
When asked why he went out onto the field in the chaos of bench clearing after the Park Hae-min dune, he said, “I went out to check if it was a dune. There was no chance left, so I came in.”
KT and SSG are both 1-5 in September. SSG has since been overtaken by the NC Dinos and dropped to fourth place.
