Professional baseball KIA infielder Kim Seon-bin had a nightmare day. A decisive defensive mistake and bad luck overlapped in the match, and the team failed to prevent a losing streak.
KIA lost 4-8 to Doosan in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 14th. He fell into a pit of 5 consecutive losses.
It was a disappointing defeat. On this day, KIA started to escape from losing streak with left-handed ace Yang Hyeon-jong at the fore. Yang Hyeon-jong also confronted opponent ace Raul Alcantara, who had no runs, with a good pitch that allowed only one run through the 5th inning.
However, the tight flow collapsed in the bottom of the 6th inning. Yang Hyeon-jong induced Kim Min-hyeok to ground the third base from the first base. The batted ball was fast, so it was possible to play double play. However, third baseman Ryu Ji-hyeok’s throw seemed to go into second baseman Kim Sun-bin’s glove, and then it fell out. Kim Sun-bin spilled it because he was in a hurry to throw to first base. The situation where there was no runner and should have been 2nd has turned into 1st and 2nd base.
Afterwards, Doosan destroyed the shaken KIA infield. Jo Soo-haeng made an infield hit with a surprise squeeze bunt at 1st out, 2nd and 3rd base, which led to a sacrifice bunt, and scored an extra run. Doosan, who gained momentum, ran away to 3-0 with Lee Yu-chan’s left-handed hit and defeated Yang Hyeon-jong. Later, Kim Seon-bin caught a ground ball induced by left-hander bullpen Choi Ji-min and threw it to second base, but fast hitter Sue-bin Sue was safe.
Next time, a disappointing defense came out for KIA. In the 2nd 1st and 3rd base, Doosan Park Gye-beom sent a long surprise bunt to the 1st and 2nd base, and Kim Seon-bin, who was caught off guard, urgently caught it and under-tossed it, but the first baseman missed it as it bounced. As for the record, it was an infield hit by the second baseman, but it was close to an error.
KIA also had a strong will to escape the losing streak. The score was tied 4-4 in the 7th inning. After Kim Seon-bin made up for one run with a slow shortstop grounder in the bases loaded safely, Choi Hyung-woo hit a devastating three-run home run. It was unfortunate for Kim Sun-bin, who had to make up for his mistakes, but he still contributed to the tie.
However, Sunbin Kim’s nightmare was not over. KIA was able to catch at least one out count when Jeong Soo-bin grounded at first base safely at the end of the 8th inning. However, third baseman Ryu Ji-hyeok, who was defending forward, caught the ball and threw it to second base, which was slightly biased toward the right fielder. Kim Sun-bin tried to throw herself, but managed to block the ball. In the safe first and third bases, KIA gave up 3 points with Yang Eui-ji’s home run following a sacrifice hit and lost the game.
If Yang Hyeon-jong had won that day, he could have ranked second in the history of the KBO League. Yang Hyeon-jong and commentator Jeong Min-cheol have 161 wins, and are tied for second place after Song Jin-woo, coach of Daeduk University (210 wins). However, the defense’s poor play ruined the chance to win. KIA also fell into a five-game losing streak, and the atmosphere subsided.
Just a week ago, KIA was running 4th with 13 wins and 12 losses. However, struggling with 1 win and 5 losses last week, it fell to 14 wins and 17 losses and 7th place.
KIA’s team ERA last week wasn’t bad at 3.71. However, with 6 errors, it was the second most after SSG (8). At least SSG maintained its first place with 3 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw, but KIA and kt were not the best with 1 win and 5 losses.카지노사이트
