The KT Wiz extended their winning streak to three games with an 8-4 victory over the KIA Tigers.
KT used a big sixth inning to win a home game against KIA at Katie Wiz Park in Suwon on April 22.
KT gave up three runs in the top of the sixth inning to fall behind 2-4, but immediately responded with a big inning to turn the game around.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, 온라인카지노 KT scored two runs to put the game out of reach. After Lee Ho-yeon led off with a single to left and Kim Min-hyuk drew a walk to put runners on first and second, KT extended its lead to 8-4 with Kim Sang-soo’s two-run double to right.
Kim Min-hyuk went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI, Kim Sang-soo went 2-for-5 with a home run and an RBI, Moon Sang-chul went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI, and Hwang Jae-gyun went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI.
KT starter Uhm Sang-baek gave up four runs in 5.2 innings, but the bullpen of Son Dong-hyun (1.1 innings), Park Young-hyun (1 inning), and Kim Jae-yoon (1 inning) pitched scoreless innings to secure the win.
After the game, KT manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “Despite giving up an early run, our starting pitcher Uhm Sang-baek did his part by leading the team to the game. Son Dong-hyun, Park Young-hyun, and Kim Jae-yoon also did a good job in defense.”
“In the batting lineup, Ahn Chi-young’s hitting was crucial in not giving away the momentum. After that, we were able to make a comeback by focusing on the opponent’s mistakes, and we were able to win the game with Kim Sang-soo’s extra-base hit.”
“I would like to thank the players for their hard work and the fans for coming to the stadium and supporting us in bad weather,” said Lee.
With the win, KT is just one win away from its 11th consecutive winning series (two out of three).
