Veteran outfielder Kim Kang-min, who is considered to have strong shoulders, fast feet and excellent judgment, was very disappointed in the match between Kia and SSG of the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the afternoon of the 8th.
In the top of the second inning when it was 0-0, Kia’s leadoff hitter Choi Hyung-woo was out on a fly to left field. Kim Sun-bin walked on base and was on first base with one out. Hwang Dae-in appeared at bat and hit SSG starter Morimando’s 144km first pitch to hit a two-run home run slightly over the fence.
SSG veteran center fielder Kim Kang-min jumped right in front of the fence in anticipation of the ball. However, the ball hit Kim Kang-min’s glove and went over the fence. Kim Kang-min, who missed the ball unfortunately, bowed his head in regret. 스포츠토토
Veteran Kim Kang-min’s expression was even darker as Hwang Dae-in’s home run hit the top of Kim Kang-min’s glove and crossed the fence.
On this day, the broadcaster also said, “This was enough for Kim Kang-min to catch the ball. It wasn’t a high home run.
Since the ball was not completely caught by the glove, it hit the glove and went over to the fence. Kim Kang-min, who values defense, said, “We have to turn the game upside down today so that we don’t have any regrets about defense.”
KIA starter Nolin won his fifth win (7 losses) of the season with five hits, two runs (two earned runs), three walks and four strikeouts in six innings. Na Sung-beom led the team to a 9-4 victory with two hits and four RBIs in five at-bats, Hwang Dae-in three at-bats, one home run and two RBIs, and Park Dong-won scored one hit and one home run and one RBI in four at-bats.
SSG starter Morimando, who has a record of five wins and no losses, started and recorded his first loss in the KBO League with six hits (two home runs), two walks, four strikeouts, and four runs in 3⅓ innings.
