“There are still over 100 games left”… kt hostess, pledged to rebound
“There are still more than 100 games left. Last year, it went up to fall baseball in a 15-game car.”
Jang Seong-woo (33, kt Wiz), the master of kt Wiz, emphasized that the team will definitely rebound.
Jang Seong-woo started as the 5th hitter catcher in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ match against the Doosan Bears held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 21st.
In the bottom of the 4th inning, when the 1-1 was a tight game, Jang Seong-wu fired a cannon shot and brought the flow. He hit opponent starter Choi Won-joon’s four-seam fastball at first base without a hit and made it 3-1 with a 125m two-run homer that cut through the middle of the field.
At the point where more points were needed, Jang Seong-wu once again showed off his presence. In the bottom of the 7th inning, when the team was leading 5-3, with 2 outs and bases loaded, he hit relief pitcher Park Chi-guk’s slider and scored 7-3 with 2 RBIs. kt won 7-3 and completed the winning series in about a month after three consecutive matches against Suwon SSG Landers on the 18th and 20th of last month. Seong-Woo Jang made an outstanding performance with 2 hits (1 home run), 4 RBIs and 1 run in 4 at-bats.
After the game, Jang Seong-woo said, “I think the game has become difficult as there are no points in the recent scoring situation. Someone has to create a chance, so I put a lot of effort into playing that role and went to the plate.”
Even with the victory on this day, kt is still at the bottom with a season record of 12 wins, 2 draws and 25 losses. The gap with the ninth-placed Hanwha Eagles is gradually narrowing with a game difference of ‘1’.
Jang Seong-woo said, “There are still more than 100 games left. Last year, I went up to fall baseball in 15 games. I want to show a better game in the future with the trust that pitchers and beasts have with each other,” he promised to rebound.안전놀이터
Last year, kt had a lot of injuries, so it was difficult to play the season. The ranking did not escape the sluggishness, dropping to 8th in the league. However, they prepared a rebound and advanced to the postseason by finishing 4th in the league with a season record of 80 wins, 2 draws and 62 losses.
Not only Jang Seong-woo, but also Anthony Alford (29) said in an interview with a distinguished player on the 19th, “There is still a lot of season left. I think I can show that kind of image enough,” he said, confident that the team will hit and go up.
I wonder if kt will be able to create a magical twist, as Jang Seong-woo and Alford hoped.
