KIA had to play without star Na Sung-bum at the end of the second inning. Na Sung-beom’s foul ball hit his left foot in the process of dealing with LG starter Choi Won-tae with a 3-0 lead with two outs and third base. Bad luck for Na Sung-bum, who can’t blame anyone.
Na Sung-bum complained of tremendous pain while responding to Choi Won-tae’s 148-kilometer fastball in the ball count 2B1S. After that, he caught his breath for a while and lightly hit a five-ball 147km fastball. However, the ball went over right fielder Hong Chang-ki and hit the fence directly. It was not 100% full swing by anyone, but he hit a ball directly against the fence. Na Sung-bum couldn’t even perform a hit ceremony properly because his toes hurt.
In the end, when I skipped the game, I decided that I couldn’t run at all, so I left the game on my own. KIA immediately sent Na Sung-bum to Good Hospital (designated as a team) for a thorough examination. It was a relief for KIA. It was a simple bruise on the left big toe. 스포츠토토킹
KIA used Choi Won-joon (26) as a pinch runner without Na Sung-bum. As soon as Choi Won-joon entered, he warmed up by stealing second base and got a walk in his first at-bat in the bottom of the third inning. He struck out in the fifth inning, but he worked properly in the bottom of the seventh inning when it was tied 7-7. With one out and runners on second base, he picked up three forkballs one after another and pushed a 143km fastball to score the winning RBI single between left and right. Since then, he has stolen two and three bases in a row and succeeded in stealing three bases on the same day alone. one’s most stolen bases in a game.
For KIA, it’s typically a good game. If Na Sung-bum was out due to injury in the second inning, it wouldn’t be strange if the game was twisted, but the player who entered instead flew. Moreover, Choi Won-joon has not even started in every game these days. Even after moving to the outfield, he was pushed back by players with good batting skills such as Lee Chang-jin and Lee Woo-sung.
Therefore, this game could be a turning point for Choi Won-joon, who was in a slump, along with the joy of winning the winning series with three wins and one loss against the leading LG as KIA. It should be said that there was a double harvest. If Choi Won-joon improves his condition, not only KIA but also Ryu Joong-il, head coach of the Hangzhou Asian Games team, will like it.
Choi Won-joon said, “I couldn’t play my own game after being discharged from the army, but I’m done adjusting now. He didn’t know the most stolen bases in a game, and he didn’t know the team’s eight stolen bases. He gives a sign to play on the team and a sign not to play. “I’m going to do what I’ve been doing this season rather than showing something,” he said.
