KIA has suffered an injury setback.
KIA infielder Hwang Dae-in was substituted during the game due to a sore hamstring and is expected to miss four to six weeks after a medical examination.
Hwang Dae-in started the game against KT at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on July 7, batting fifth.
In the second inning, after Choi Hyung-woo, the No. 4 hitter, led off with a walk, Hwang Dae-in hit a grounder to the third baseman. The leadoff runner was thrown out at second, and Hwang was safe at first when the second baseman’s throw to first was thrown out at the plate.
Socrates singled up the middle, advancing Hwang to second. However, he felt unwell and was replaced by pinch-hitter Lee Woo-sung.
A KIA team official said, “Hwang Dae-in felt pain in his right hamstring during a base-running play in the second inning. He will undergo an MRI after traveling to the hospital.” 메이저놀이터
