KIA shortstop Park Chan-ho received applause from the crowd for his great defense in the match between Kia and SSG of the “2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League” at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the afternoon of the 8th.
Leading hitter Choo Shin-soo’s pitch in the bottom of the fifth inning, which was leading 4-2, flowed to the front of Kim Sun-bin, who moved deep to the left due to a defensive shift. Kia’s second baseman Kim Sun-bin calmly moved toward the ball and caught the ball. And the moment I tried to throw to first base, I slipped and couldn’t throw.
The broadcaster said, “The grass on the ground seems to have slipped because of the recent heavy rain.” Due to Kim Sun-bin’s mistake, he was in a crisis with no outs and runners on first base.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, Oh Tae-gon’s ball went deep to the left of the shortstop with no outs and runners on first base. KIA shortstop Park Chan-ho ran toward the fast ball, caught the ball, jumped in reverse motion, and threw it to second base. Second baseman Kim Sun-bin forced out Choo Shin-soo while doing a base cover. It was a great Keystone combination play.
The crowd cheered and applauded the rain, and Park Chan-ho looked as if nothing had happened. Kim Sun-bin, who put out Choo Shin-soo, who had been on base due to his mistake, also sighed with relief.
The broadcaster also praised Park Chan-ho, saying, “It’s a ball that I’m going deep into, but it’s a very cool shot that he throws as he jumps toward second base.”
Park Chan-ho’s excellent sense came out in the bottom of the sixth inning. When Han Yu-seom’s pitch with runners on first and 23rd base with no outs came toward second base, Park Chan-ho moved to second base and caught the ball. 토토사이트
There was a chance to tag Kim Kang-min heading to second base. However, the experienced Kim Kang-min took a step back and bought time to prevent double play. Then Park Chan-ho took the first base and caught the first batter. Later, Kim Sun-bin, who entered the second base cover, caught Hwang Dae-in’s throw and completed the double play.
Park Chan-ho scored no hits, one walk, and one run in four at-bats, but his excellent defense and base play provided the foundation for his team’s victory.
They won 9-4 against KIA SSG. KIA is in fifth place with 60 wins, 60 losses, and 1 draw, and SSG is in first place with 78 wins, 40 losses, and 4 draws.
