KT Wiz coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “I hope the players will forget the past game and start anew.”
KT will play the 16th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League season against SSG Landers at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 12th.
The match against SSG is 4 consecutive games. Last weekend, a three-game series was played in Suwon. On the 8th, the first game of a three-game weekend series, they won 16-7. However, the next day (the 9th), after a close game in the 12th inning of overtime, the game could not be decided with a score of 8-8.
On the 10th, the last day of the three-game series, they lost 5-6. On the 9th, closing pitcher Kim Jae-yoon, who pitched 31 pitches without allowing any runs in 3 innings, hit a timely hit from Choi Jeong and a 2-run home run from Park Seong-han in the top of the 9th.
Coach Lee said, “I am disappointed with both the Saturday and Sunday games.” At the same time, I hope that the players’ momentum will not be dampened and the shock of defeat will not be felt.
Before the game, KT’s batting order was as follows: Kim Min-hyuk (right fielder), Alford (left fielder), Hwang Jae-gyun (third baseman), Park Byeong-ho (designated hitter), Bae Jeong-dae (center fielder), Jang Seong-woo (catcher), Oh Yun-seok (first baseman), Park Gyeong-soo (second baseman), and Kim Sang-soo (shortstop). I made it.
