Kiwoom Heroes won a fierce pitching match and ran a winning streak.
Kiwoom won 3-1 in the match against KT Wiz in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 23rd and ran for two consecutive wins.

In KT, starting pitcher Bo Schulseo continued pitching scoreless until the 6th inning, but allowed a run in the 7th inning, recording a loss in 6⅓ innings, 6 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 2 runs. In defense, it was regrettable that he made an error in the 7th inning and created an additional run crisis. The KT lineup did not score until the 7th inning on this day, so it was difficult to solve the game. Jang Seong-woo and Lee Ho-yeon played a multi-hit role, but failed to change the flow of the game.
In KT, Jang Seong-woo hit the first hit of the game in the second inning with one company, but could not connect it to a goal. Kiwoom also had two outs and 1st and 2nd base chances with a hit by Byeong-wook Lim, a sacrifice bunt by Ji-young Lee, and a walk by Jung-hoo Lee in the third inning, but Ji-yeol Lim withdrew due to a foul fly by first baseman.
In the 6th inning, KT seized a chance for 1 company, 1st and 2nd base with a hit by lead batter Lee Ho-yeon, a sacrifice bunt by Jang Jun-won, and an automatic intentional 4th pitch by Kang Baek-ho. However, Kim Sang-soo’s batted ball was caught by center fielder Lee Jung-hoo’s hobo, and Moon Sang-cheol struck out and failed to score.
In the 7th inning, Kiwoom’s lead batter Kim Tae-jin reached base with a hit, and Kim Hui-jip succeeded in a sacrifice bunt to make it 1 out and 2 base. Lim Byung-wook scored the first run with an RBI and a timely hit. On top of this, Schulser’s throwing mistake overlapped, leading to a crisis with 1 out and 2nd base.
KT eventually lowered Schulser and put Son Dong-hyun in. However, after Lim Byung-wook’s third base steal, Kiwoom added one more point with Lee Ji-young’s 1 RBI and a timely hit. Lee Jung-hoo also made a sacrifice fly with an RBI, widening the score to 3-0. 토토사이트
