KIA starter Hyeon-Jong Yang won his first win of the season in 3 games with 5 innings, 3 hits, 4 walks, 7 strikeouts and 1 run. Song Jin-woo (210 wins) Jeong Min-cheol (161 wins) only 2 people recorded the 3rd record ever.
Jeon Sang-hyun, who climbed the mound with 1st and 2nd base in the 6th inning, with a lead of 5-1, defended Yang Hyeon-jong’s victory by blocking the pursuit of Samsung with KKK in the 1st and 2nd bases with no outs.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk, who had a winning streak, said, “Yang Hyeon-jong could not take responsibility for many innings as the number of pitches increased, but he played a good role as a starting pitcher by blocking the opponent’s batting line with minimum runs. I sincerely congratulate you on achieving a great record.” “In a crisis situation, Jeon Sang-hyun, who came to the mindset, spread a good pitch without conceding, and the pitchers who rose later did their part well,” he praised.
Regarding the batting line, he pointed out, “Concentration was outstanding after the second inning at the end of the first inning. Choi Hyeong-woo, Kim Seon-bin, and Lee Chang-jin continued to create chances, and Byun Woo-hyuk’s grand slam home run played a decisive role in winning the early game.” Coach Kim promised to the 12,990 spectators who visited Champions Field for the holiday, “Many fans came to visit us over the weekend, and we are happy to repay them with a victory. We will do our best tomorrow as well.”
