Coach Lee Kang-chul ‘Five-game winning streak’

“Park Young-hyun gave up a run, but he didn’t lose his focus until the end”

KT Wiz extended its winning streak to five games with a 9-8 victory over the Doosan Bears in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Sunday. With their fifth straight win, KT (56 wins, 2 ties, 45 losses) moved into a tie for third place with second-place SSG (55 wins, 1 tie, 44 losses), who lost on the day.

Starting pitcher Wes Benjamin allowed four runs on eight hits with two walks and five strikeouts in five innings for the win. It was his 12th win of the season. The bullpen of Kim Young-hyun (0 innings, 1 run), Son Dong-hyun (2 scoreless innings), Joo Kwon (1 inning, 1 run), and Park Young-hyun (1 inning, 2 runs) preserved the win. Park earned his third save of the season.

Manager Lee Kang-cheol said in a postgame interview, “Starting pitcher Benjamin was shaky in the first inning, but he did his job by holding on until the fifth inning. In the bullpen, Joo Ju-kwon and Son Dong-hyun did a good job. Park Young-hyun gave up a run, but he stayed focused and finished the game.” He encouraged his pitchers.

Jang Sung-woo went 4-for-5 with a double, home run, five RBIs and one run scored. Choi Jae-dae also chipped in with five hits, three RBIs and two runs scored, while Kim Min-hyuk and Anthony Alford had multi-hit games.

Coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Jang Jang-woo, who had a good batting performance, set the tone for the game with a three-run home run in the first inning. We gave up a run, but Jang Sung-woo and Alford were able to score additional runs to win the game. “The players did a great job in the hot weather, and we are grateful to the fans for their support,” said the team.

KT will travel to Daejeon’s Hanwha Life Eagle Park on April 18 for a three-game series against the Hanwha Eagles. 안전카지노사이트
