Despite the sudden call, he did his job well. KT Wiz Kim Min-hyeok, who scored 4 hits, contributed greatly to the team’s escape from losing streak.
KT won 11-4 in the 4th game of the season against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 2nd and escaped from a 9-game losing streak.
Min-hyeok Kim, who was excluded from the starting lineup due to symptoms of dammit, got a chance to play as a substitute at the beginning of the game. Anthony Alford, who appeared as the lead batter in the top of the third inning, complained of pain in his right knee and was replaced to protect the player.
Kim Min-hyeok, who was called by manager Lee Kang-cheol, stepped on first base with a heavy hit, and scored when Park Kyung-soo’s double hit from second out and first base. It was an unexpected pinch hitter, but the result was a ‘great success’.
After that, Kim Min-hyeok, who added 3 hits, finished the game with 4 hits in 4 at-bats, 2 RBIs and 3 runs, clearing Alford’s gap. It was the record for most hits in a single game.
After the game, Kim Min-hyeok said, “Since my body gets stiff when I sit on the bench, I spin the bat indoors when the team goes on defense. (As a result, when I entered the plate), my body was in a state of heat. (Playing) I think the timing was good.” He recalled the situation at the time.
Kim Min-hyeok said, “It’s a style where you feel relieved if you hit two (hits) in a game, but as the team fell into a losing streak, I thought I’d throw away that mindset and hit until I could hit, which led to good results.”
Kim Min-hyeok has been on the rise since the beginning of the season, but he had to suffer during the losing streak. “I don’t know the coach or the seniors, but the players in the middle or the young players had to pay attention. There were many games where I could win, but I couldn’t break a losing streak, so I noticed, so I left work without taking a shower,” he recalled. .바카라사이트
Then, he confessed, “When I was young, I only thought about my individual performance, but after serving in the army and now looking at the age of 30, I was upset during the losing streak even though I played well.
In the first game in May, both the team and myself laughed and sighed. Kim Min-hyeok expressed his gratitude to captain Park Kyung-soo. “At the meeting before the match, senior (Park) Kyungsoo said that the 9th consecutive loss was in April, and today is the first match in May, so it was helpful for me to go into the match with a comfortable mindset,” he said.
