Will it be a year to open the eyes of the ‘baseball second generation’ geopo prospects? Manrupo oriental medicine turned the atmosphere of Gocheok Dome upside down 180 degrees.
In the last game of the weekend series against the Lotte Giants held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 28th, Kiwoom Heroes won a 7-5 come-from-behind victory thanks to Lim Ji-yeol’s big home run in the bottom of the 8th inning.
Lim Ji-yeol’s third home run of the season. This year’s KBO League’s 9th grand home run (1024 in total) and Lim Ji-yeol’s first grand home run since his debut. A valuable shot that overcame the series sweep crisis and ended the team’s 4-game losing streak.
It was a game where the sense of hitting that had been raised the previous day burned like a dormant volcano and finally exploded. On this day, Kiwoom was blocked by Lotte ace Na Kyun-an’s counterattack and scored only one point until the 6th inning. He sent runners to scoring position 4 times out of 6 innings, but scoring was not easy.
After one out in the bottom of the first inning, Kim Hye-sung doubled and Russell walked, but Lee Jeong-hu and Lim Byung-wook struck out one after another. In the second inning, Kim Hui-jip hit a double, but Lee Won-seok, Lee Ji-young, and Lee Hyung-jong had to strike out.
In the 3rd inning, Kim Joon-wan hit, Kim Hye-seong walked, and Lee Jung-hoo hit in an instant to get a chance to safely load the bases. However, Russell’s double hit only added 1 point.
In the 4th and 5th episodes, three-person offenses were committed one after another. In the 6th inning, lead hitter Lee Jung-hoo stole second base following a hit, but could not connect it to the score.
On the other hand, Kiwoom’s starter Jeong Chan-heon was shaken with 6 hits and 5 runs in 4⅔innings. In the top of the second inning, Lotte Ko Seung-min and Han Dong-hee’s sacrifice fly came out in a crisis with no bases loaded, and 2 points were taken away first. In the 3rd inning, Lotte Jeon Jun-woo’s triple and Ahn Chi-hong’s timely hit broke out one after another even after catching up to two outs.
Jeong Chan-heon faced a crisis again in the 5th inning with Yoon Dong-hee’s hit and Ahn Kwon-soo’s walk. In the process, he even made a check error on first base. In the end, Park Seung-wook’s bunt, Jeon Jun-woo’s sacrifice fly, and Ahn Chi-hong’s timely hit led them to 1-5. In the 6th inning, an error by the left fielder came out and faced a crisis with 2nd out, 2nd and 3rd base, but barely conceded.
It was the 8th episode that the drama was written. Against Kim Sang-soo, who was reborn as Lotte Pilseung-jo this season, Russell Lim Byeong-uk and Lee Won-seok scored three consecutive hits and loaded the bases safely. Kim Dong-heon’s sacrifice fly and Kim Hui-jip’s hit made the bases full again at 3-5.
Lotte posted fifth pitcher Yoon Myeong-jun, and Lee Hyung-jong struck out, but Lim Ji-yeol hit a come-from-behind full-run over the center field fence. Lim Ji-yeol is the son of Lim Ju-taek, head of the Seosan division of Hanwha, who was a part of Binggrae’s dynamite lineup in the past.
Kiwoom won a difficult victory by blocking Lotte’s attack with Lim Chang-min in the beginning of the 9th inning. Lim Byeong-wook and Kim Hye-seong’s lake monument also stood out.메이저사이트
On this day, Gocheok Sky Dome sold out 16,000 seats for two days in a row for the first time in six years since 2017. The scene was covered with desperate cheers from Lotte fans dreaming of becoming a ‘top destination’. However, Kiwoom players familiar with the underdog succeeded in countering.
Meanwhile, Kiwoom Ha Young-min, who was hit directly on the knee by Jeon Jun-woo of Lotte in the beginning of the 7th inning, was immediately evacuated to the hospital. The Kiwoom club breathed a sigh of relief as the CT scan showed no unusual findings.
