‘Decisive one shot’ reversal of Heredia… Defeat SSG KT the day before
Guillermo Heredia (32, SSG)’s decisive ‘one shot’ overturned the losing game.
Heredia started as the 4th hitter and left fielder in the second game of the weekday match against KT held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 3rd, and led the team to a 5-3 victory with a come-from-behind three-runner in the 7th inning.
In the 7th inning, when SSG trailed by 1-3, Heredia, who entered the plate with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd base, hit a forkball on the 5th pitch thrown by KT pitcher Dong-Hyun Son and hit a 3-run home run with a distance of 125m that crossed the left fence. Heredia made a big success with 2 hits, 3 RBIs and 1 run in 4 at-bats, including a home run.
With Heredia’s home run, SSG, which had been dragged by KT throughout the game, took the lead for the first time, and the atmosphere of the game completely changed. In the 8th SSG, Kim Min-sik hit a double at the right time and scored an extra point in the chance to second base with Park Seong-han’s heavy hit and Oh Tae-gon’s sacrifice bunt.
In the first place, the game on this day was carried out with KT winning the game all the way.
KT made good use of the opportunity in the top of the 3rd inning when lead batter Lee Si-won walked out after a 12-pitch game with SK starter Kim Gwang-hyun.
Hong Hyun-bin’s hit ball, which hit a sacrifice bunt, went to Kim Gwang-hyun, and the leading runner was in danger of being caught at second base, but Kim Gwang-hyun’s throw error instantly created a chance for 1st and 2nd base safely.
After that, Kim Sang-soo and Kim Min-hyeok stepped back with a strikeout and a fly ball, but Jang Seong-woo, the 4th hitter, hit the left at the right time and KT took the lead.
Every time SSG was needed, hitters’ ‘one shot’ exploded.
In the third inning, when the team was losing 0-1, Kim Min-sik, who came out as the lead batter, hit the second cutter from KT starter So Joon So-jun, who crossed under the strike zone, and hit the tied solo shot. Kim Min-sik swung a hard hit with Heredia this day with 2 hits, 2 RBIs, 1 run and 1 walk in 3 at-bats.
On the mound, ace Kim Gwang-hyeon threw 100 pitches despite the shaky pitches and allowed 2 runs in 5 innings. Finisher Seo Jin-yong, who climbed the mound in the ninth inning, managed to overcome the crisis with the bases loaded with one out and protected the team’s victory.토스카지노
Heredia, who we met after the game, said, “Every hitter goes to the plate with the mindset of hitting at an important moment, and I’m so happy that I did it.”
Then, when asked how he felt about experiencing the KBO League for a month in April, Heredia said, “Whether it’s the United States, Japan, or Korea, playing baseball is the same, so there was no great difficulty in adapting.” It seems to have led to good results,” he said.
