The KIA Tigers’ water bat is leading to disastrous results. A total of 2 points were produced over two days.
KIA lost 1-5 in an away game against Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 13th.
KIA had only 6 hits in the other line. 4th hitter Choi Hyung-woo swung a hard hit with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 RBI and 1 walk, but the support from the rest of the players was weak. In particular, Hwang Dae-in, the 5th hitter following Hyeong-Woo Choi, went silent with no hits and 1 strikeout in 5 at-bats, and Lee Chang-jin, who hit a pinch hit home run the day before, also went 0-4 with no hits. The bottom batting line was only 10 at-bats without a hit, and it was far from reaching base.
There were significantly fewer chances to score, but even this could not be saved. In the 4th inning, Choi Hyung-woo walked and Socrates Brito hit to the right, and Lee Woo-seong hit a shortstop grounder, but he went on base with the choice of a fielder and made the bases loaded with two outs. However, the follow-up hitter Byun Woo-hyuk was grounded out by the third baseman.
Until the 5th inning, the KIA, which was blocked by Doosan starting pitcher Choi Seung-yong’s good pitching and suffered a scoreless run, scored the first point in the 6th inning with Choi Hyeong-woo hitting 1 RBI and 1st base safely. However, Hyung-Woo Choi’s double hit was the only extra hit. In the safe second base chance, Hwang Dae-in pitched a ground ball, Socrates Brito stopped at a left fielder’s fly ball, and even Lee Woo-seong struck out with a strike-knock-out.안전놀이터
KIA suffered from extreme emptiness the day before. Out of 6 hits, there were only 2 long hits (Lee Chang-jin’s home run, Choi Hyeong-woo’s double), and Lee Chang-jin’s solo home run was the only score. KIA took on the shocking result of staying at just one point in two consecutive games.
The meager offensive power is holding back KIA. With the defeat on this day, KIA became 14-16 and fell into a quagmire of 4 consecutive losses. Here, this weekend’s three-game losing series has been confirmed. Horrible hitting face. Losses are piling up. A breakthrough must be made as soon as possible.
