Now flip 0-5 degrees. KT Wiz, who had fallen to last place as a candidate for the championship, began to rise upwards on the rise.
In a home game against the Samsung Lions held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 16th, KT gave 4 points in the 2nd inning and 1 point in the 3rd inning and started trailing 0-5, but pursued with a decisive hit on the opponent’s error, and finally Lee Ho-yeon’s He won a come-from-behind victory 7-6 with an ending hit. With the victory on this day, KT, who recorded 25 wins, 2 draws, and 33 losses, and a win rate of 4.3 1 ri, ranked 7th with Kiwoom Heroes (27 wins, 2 draws and 35 losses, odds of 0.435) and 8th without a ride. It is 1.5 games away from Samsung, which went down to 9th place, and Hanwha Eagles, which is 10th place. It is only 2.5 games behind 6th place KIA Tigers and 4 games away from 5th place Doosan Bears.
After losing 1-10 to Doosan on the 2nd, the win-loss margin was -14 with 16 wins, 2 draws and 30 losses, but it was reduced to 8 before I knew it.
It’s a roller coaster pace with 4 consecutive wins, 4 losses, 6 wins, 3 losses, and 3 wins in a row, but it’s definitely stronger than when you were running last.
Until May, there were too many injured players, so I was worried that I would be able to play the season properly, but one by one they returned and now they are almost complete. On the pitching side, except for So Joon Sohn, who was out for the season due to elbow surgery, all of the starting pitchers have returned, and all but Kang Baek-ho and Cho Yong-ho have returned to play. Anthony Alford and Hwang Jae-gyun, who recently returned, showed a good sense of hitting, and the team’s batting line was clearly strengthened.
In the past, it was read from the players’ expressions that it was over when the game started by 5 points in the beginning, but now it doesn’t look like that at all. On this day, starter Wes Benjamin gave up 5 points in the beginning, but KT scored 1 point in the 3rd inning and 1 point in the 4th inning to chase by 2-5 with a 3-point gap, and at the end of the 7th inning 2 points to chase with a 1-point gap. At the beginning of the 8th inning, they allowed 1 run again and the gap was 4-6, 2 points again, but at the end of the 8th inning against Oh Seung-hwan, Park Kyung-soo doubled the gap back to 1 point. Seung-Hwan Oh allowed Park Kyung-Soo to hit a double, and was replaced after being forced to third base safely with a sacrifice bunt. .
Now that the pursuer has tied the score, the atmosphere belongs to KT. In the bottom of the 9th inning, Moon Sang-cheol’s right-middle double and Hwang Jae-gyun’s walk made Lee Ho-yeon, who took the first ball sacrifice bunt motion at first and second base, correct his batting stance when the pitcher was about to throw and hit a ground ball that passed the pitcher’s side and rolled to center field. , and the game ended with the runner on second base hitting home. Despite 5 runs in the beginning, Benjamin did not allow additional runs until the 7th inning, giving KT time to pursue. The strong lineup pursued, and Samsung, which had lost its confidence due to recent consecutive defeats, was attacked by KT, and the defense was shaken by the pressure.토토사이트
KT recently let go of the sluggish Boschulser and brought back ace William Cuevas, who led the team to the championship. Cuevas will start against Samsung on the 17th. If Cuevas shows his old pitching and leads 4 consecutive wins, KT can literally ride the upward trend. KT, who showed a strong side to the top team, swept 3 consecutive wins over Lotte, who was in 3rd place, and had a 2-1 winning series against SSG, which was running in 1st place. Although they are still ranked 8th, they are showing the power to change the league situation. Now, it has become the KT that was chosen as a candidate for the championship at the beginning of the season.
