- on Feb 24, 2023
The three best pitchers of the national team started to check the actual game one after another.
Kim Gwang-hyeon, Yang Hyeon-jong, and Lee Yong-chan, who are participating in the World Baseball Classic (WBC), took the mound as middle pitchers in a practice game against the kt Wiz held at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona on the 24th (Korean time).
It was Kim Gwang-hyun who took the mound first. Kim Gwang-hyeon took the mound in the 4th inning following Ko Young-pyo (3 scoreless innings) and struck out Hwang Jae-gyun on a swing. After one out, Bae Jeong-dae went out with an infield hit, but turned Oh Yun-seok into a double hit in front of the third baseman.메이저사이트
In the 5th inning, Kim Gwang-hyun, who gave Alford a left-handed hit and Kang Min-seong a walk, put Kang Hyun-wook out with a shortstop ground ball. Jung Joon-Young struck out on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd bases, and Kim Sang-Soo’s fast hit was gently caught by Choi Jeong, the 3rd baseman, and thrown to the 1st base, lightening Kim Gwang-Hyun’s shoulders.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who climbed the mound in the 6th inning, caught Lee Sang-ho with a double hit in front of the second baseman after Kim Min-hyuk reached base with an infield hit. Then, Seong-Min Choi was fouled to the left fielder. Yang Hyeon-jong, who continued in the 6th inning due to the number of pitches, struck out Oh Yoon-seok.
After one out in the 7th inning, Lee Yong-chan walked Cho Yong-ho and struck out Kim Joon-tae, but Jung Joon-yeong walked again. Lee Yong-chan finished the inning by returning Yoo Hyeon-in to the second baseman grounder in the 2nd and 1st and 2nd bases.
On this day, starting pitcher Koh Young-pyo pitched 3 scoreless innings, and the national team won 8-2 with home runs by Kang Baek-ho and Park Byeong-ho. The national team won 3 consecutive victories in practice matches until today, following a 4-1 victory over NC on the 17th and a 12-6 victory over KIA on the 20th.
Kim Gwang-hyeon, Yang Hyeon-jong, and Yong-chan Lee, who were also members of the 2006 youth national team, aim for a beautiful finish in this tournament, which is virtually the last national team. He has to set an example on the mound, and he is taking the lead by leading his juniors outside the baseball field.
