Kiwoom Heroes failed to sweep the second three-game series this season. There was a gap in the early momentum fight. Young outfielder Park Chan-hyeok’s defense was loose.
Kiwoom lost 4-6 in the 3rd game of 3 consecutive weeks of the 2023 KBO League NC Dinos O held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 14th. Starting pitcher Ariel Hurado gave up 4 runs only in the first inning, and the other line only scored 2 runs against opponent ace Eric Peddie. In the attack at the end of the ninth inning, Kim Hui-jip hit a two-run home run to chase, but he lacked strength.
The first winning point in this game was the NC attack in the first inning. Hurado got three hits in a row from the national trio of Son A-seop, Park Min-woo, and Park Gun-woo. In the process of both runners entering first and third base, there was a relay play that was not smooth. Left fielder Park Chan-hyeok, who was playing the fence with Park Kun-woo’s long hit, failed to properly judge the position of the dropped ball, and even in the following situation, he passed Kurtman (shortstop Kim Hui-jip) and made an inaccurate throw to the third baseman.
The same was true in the circumstances that followed. Hurado was hit on the left side of the line by Kwon Hee-dong, and Park Chan-hyeok followed the ball into the foul area. The ball hit the foul area structure a few times and was deflected. If he had concentration, he could have handled it quickly and prevented the batter runner from advancing to second base, but a fumble came out in the process as well. Kwon Hee-dong stepped on the home plate when Park Se-hyeok, the follow-up hitter, hit right. On this day, Kiwoom also made mistakes in the song and port in the infield training in the 1st and 3rd innings.
Kiwoom took the 1st and 2nd games in the NC 3 series, but the overall atmosphere is not good, such as giving away the winning series in all the previous 3 consecutive games. Recently, Lee Jung-hoo, the leading hitter, is raising expectations as the sense of hitting revives, but there is still a long way to go. In this situation, play with poor concentration continued.
Park Chan-hyuk, who joined last season (2022), is a player recognized as a’Geopo Prospect’ by hitting 6 homers in the first 30 games of the season. Since then, the opportunity to play has decreased due to ups and downs, but this season, he is steadily gaining opportunities as a designated hitter and left fielder.
On the 14th, Park Chan-hyeok received applause for his ‘trick’ of catching Kim Joo-won’s left-hand foul hit with a diving catch in a sprint in the second out and third base at the beginning of the third inning of the game on the 14th. He was definitely Lake Bi.토스카지노
However, Park Chan-hyeok’s poor years and experiences could not be used as an excuse for his mistakes and mistakes in the first episode. Kiwoom pursued fiercely in the second half of the game, but was unable to narrow the score gap in the first inning. Park Chan-hyuk, who is still growing. His concentration and basic skills seem to need a little more.
