“Thanks to Russell and Jeon Byeong-woo’s defense in the 7th, I was able to not lose the flow to the opponent.”
Kiwoom Heroes, led by coach Hong Won-ki, escaped from a losing streak by winning 6-1 in the third match of the season against the Samsung Lions of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 20th.

After the game, coach Hong Won-ki said, “Starter Yokishi showed good chemistry with Kim Dong-heon and fulfilled his duties until the 6th inning. He showed skillful pitching in every crisis and blocked the innings well.” 토스카지노
On the other line, Kim Hui-jip’s performance shone. Kim Hui-jip became the main character of the final hit that day, sweeping 3 RBIs and 2 bases with 1 out and 1 bases loaded in the 1st inning.
Manager Hong praised, saying, “Kim Hui-jip’s 3 RBIs in the first inning played a big role in bringing about victory.”
Defense wasn’t a problem either. In particular, Edison Russell and Jeon Byung-woo received applause from the fans as they captured all of the opponent’s clothesline-like batted balls like pictures and handled them without errors in the 7th inning.
Director Hong Won-ki said, “Every innings, the rain came out. Especially in the 7th episode, thanks to Russell and Jeon Byeong-woo’s hospitable defense, I was able to avoid losing the flow to the opponent.”
At the same time, he added, “I was able to bring victory today by creating a wedge point with Russell’s timely hit and Jeon Byung-woo’s home run behind Hoso-bi.”
From the 21st, Kiwoom will have three consecutive weekend expeditions with SSG Landers.
