The KT Wiz snapped their losing streak.
KT won the eighth game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against SSG Landers 14-4 on Thursday at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. After the game, head coach Lee Kang-cheol praised the players for their determination to end the losing streak.
Starting pitcher Lee Byeol-seong earned his second win of the season (5-2) with five innings of five-hit ball, four strikeouts, four walks, and one run. Lee said, “He threw a few pitches, but he did his job by managing his pitches well. The bullpen did a good job as well,” Lee said.
At the plate, Park Byung-ho went 3-for-5 with a walk-off home run, Alford went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, four RBIs, four runs scored and two walks, and Jang Sung-woo went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs and one run scored. 안전놀이터
Lee said, “Park Byung-ho’s walk-off home run and Jang Sung-woo’s RBI single early in the game gave us the lead. It’s encouraging to see Alford and the batting order pick up their hitting as well.”
“I want to thank the players for their hard work and the fans for coming to the away game and supporting us,” Lee said.
