Dinosaur Corps players beamed with joy after escaping a five-game losing streak and pulling off a thrilling one-run comeback in extra innings.
NC won 5-4 against Kiwoom at Gocheok Sky Dome on June 6 with Choi Jung-won’s game-winning hit in the 10th inning of extra innings after the score was tied at 4-4.
After giving up 10 hits and striking out 10 against Hurado, NC dramatically tied the game in the top of the eighth inning.
Trailing 2-4 with one out in the top of the eighth, Son Asub singled against Won Jong-hyun, who took over for Hurado, and Park Min-woo followed with a single to left field to put runners on second and third.
Against the new pitcher, Yang Hyun, Kwon Hee-dong and Martin singled to tie the game at 4-4. However, Kwon Hee-dong was thrown out at home on Martin’s single, ending the chance for a comeback.
Kiwoom had the tying run on second base in the bottom of the ninth, but Kim Hye-sung struck out swinging on a pitch from Kim Si-hoon to send the game into extra innings.메이저놀이터
They say that after a crisis comes a chance. In the top of the 10th inning of extra innings, Kim Joo-won singled to put runners on first and second with no outs, and Son Ah-seob laid down a sacrifice bunt on Lee Myung-jong’s first pitch.
Choi Jung-jeong, who started the game for the first time, took advantage of the opportunity. Choi took a pitch from Lee Myung-jong and smashed a two-run double into the left field seats to bring home Kim Joo-won.
It was the first hit for Choi, who joined the Commerce after the 2021 season and was released last month after going 0-for-4 in four at-bats. Choi came through with a clutch hit at a crucial time to save her team from a fifth straight loss.
