Hanwha Eagles submarine hopeful Kim Jae-young led Geelong Korea to a 7-game winning streak with 6 scoreless innings.
Geelong Korea, led by coach Lee Byeong-gyu, won 3-2 in the 6th round home game against the Melbourne Aces of the 2022-2023 Australian Professional Baseball (ABL) held at the Geelong Baseball Center in Australia on the 16th (hereinafter Korean time).
Geelong Korea escaped from the seven-game losing streak and recorded 6 wins and 15 losses in the season. After winning 3-2 against Canberra on the 2nd, I tasted victory in exactly two weeks. Melbourne 7-10.
Geelong Korea is Jang Jin-hyeok (right fielder) – Park Jung-hyeon (shortstop) – Kim Joo-sung (3rd baseman) – Song Chan-eui (2nd baseman) – Oh Jang-han (designated hitter) – Kim Min-seok (1st baseman) – Yoo Sang-bin (left fielder) – Park Sang-eon (catcher) – Lee Won-seok (Center fielder) I made up the starting lineup in order. The starting pitcher is Kim Jae-young.
I picked the first point in the 2nd inning. After one out, Oh Jang-han walked, and Kim Min-seok set the table for first and third base with a right-handed hit, while Yoo Sang-bin broke the balance of 0 with an RBI and a timely hit. However, the chances of a 1st out, 1st and 3rd base were canceled when Park Sang-eon withdrew due to a floating ball from the 2nd baseman, and Yoo Sang-bin, the 1st base runner, failed to steal the 2nd base.
In Geelong Korea, the lead hitter went on base from the 3rd to the 5th inning, but failed to score. However, episode 6 was different. Song Chan-eui, the leader, reached second base with an infield hit and wild throw, and Ha Jae-hoon, who appeared at bat in place of Kim Min-seok as the first out and second baseman, scored his 6th home run of the season with a left-center two-runner. It was an oriental shot that drove the wedge to victory.
Geelong Korea lost their first run in the 8th inning. Changed pitcher Oh Yoon-seong dedicated a double to leader Jacob Robson. After that, he was hit by an RBI infield grounder by George Kaliel, the 1st out and 3rd baseman, who was on base by Chris Burke. 메이저사이트
Geelong Korea gave up one point in the last ninth inning due to a catch error by third baseman Kim Joo-seong with two outs loaded. However, finisher Choi Ji-min overcame the ongoing two-out bases loaded crisis with Burke striking out on a swing and ending the game without allowing a tie.
The protagonist of the victory was Kim Jae-young, the starter. He boasted clean battery breathing with Hanwha colleague Park Sang-eon and showed off a good pitching with 3 hits, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts in 6 innings. General manager Sohn Hyuk of Hanwha, who visited the stadium, added meaning by throwing the best pitch in front of his eyes. Next, Kim Tae-hyeon (1 inning scoreless), Oh Yoon-seong (1 inning, 1 run) and Choi Ji-min (1 inning, 1 run) followed.
Geelong Korea will play the 3rd match of round 6 against Melbourne at 2:00 pm on the 17th.
