On the other line, Anthony Alford, who was in a slump, broke the silence. At the end of the 3rd inning, Alford led kt’s victory with 2 hits, 3 RBIs and 1 run in 4 at-bats, including the final two runs.
Min-hyeok Kim scored 2 hits in 5 at-bats, Sang-cheol Moon scored 3 hits in 5 at-bats, and Seong-wu Jang scored 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 RBI and 1 run.
After the game, kt coach Lee Kang-chul said, “Starting pitcher Eom Sang-baek overcame the crisis well and did his part, and he blocked the bullpen pitchers well. I also want to commend Jang Seong-woo for his lead.”
In addition, “In the other line, Seong-Woo Jang’s preemptive hit at the end of the 1st inning brought the atmosphere of the game, and after allowing a tie, we were able to win with Lee Sang-Ho Ho-Bi, followed by Alford and Jang Seong-Woo’s long hits. Moon Sang-Cheol and Kim Min-Hyuk also showed good hitting and contributed to the team’s victory. I also thank the fans who supported me,” he added.
