KT Wiz beat Kiwoom Heroes, who self-destructed with 14 shots, hitting 12 hits and winning 2 consecutive victories in demonstration games. 

KT won 11-1 in the 2023 KBO League demonstration game against Kiwoom Heroes held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 14th. KT, who won 2-1 against Kiwoom the day before, won two consecutive victories in demonstration games. 

While KT starter Benjamin pitched well with 2⅔ innings and 1 run (non-self fault), Shin Byeong-ryul (1⅓ innings) – Kim Min (1⅔ innings) – Ha Jun-ho (1⅓ innings) – Shim Jae-min (1 innings) – Kim Jae-yoon (1 innings) in the bullpen Jin played a scoreless pitch. Kang Min-seong, who came on as a pinch hitter, swung a hard hit with 2 hits and 4 RBIs, while Seong-Woo Jang and Joon-Tae Kim, and Sang-Cheol Moon also scored 2 hits each, contributing to the team’s victory.

On the other hand, Kiwoom Mound destroyed itself with 14 sand dunes. Starter Ahn Woo-jin threw 2 hits, 3 walks and 4 strikeouts in 3 innings, but bowed his head as the bullpen fell into hunting. The batting line also only had 3 hits and no hits. Only three players, Lee Hyeong-jong, Kim Hwi-jip, and Yong-gyu Lee, each scored one hit. 

Both teams had early chances, but couldn’t make it clear. An Woo-jin gave up a crisis with 1 company and 1st and 2nd bases with 2 walks in the 1st inning, and made 1st and 3rd base safely with the lead batter on base in the 2nd inning, but the KT lineup failed to score. 

Rather, the team that laughed first was Kiwoom. KT Ya Su-jin’s consecutive mistakes were decisive. Kiwoom, who was blocked by Benjamin perfectly until the second inning, took the opportunity in the third inning due to the opponent shortstop’s catch error. Afterwards, Kiwoom, who had a chance to safely hit 1st and 2nd base with Kim Hui-jip’s hit, raised the score after KT third baseman Hwang Jae-gyun’s throwing error came out when Lim Ji-yeol grounded to 3rd base after a run.  메이저사이트

However, KT launched a counterattack in the top of the 4th inning. Leading batsman Bae Jeong-dae’s hit and Moon Sang-cheol’s ball hit the body, followed by Kim Jun-tae’s timely hit, Son Min-seok’s sacrifice fly, and Jang Seong-woo’s timely hit, turning the score over to 3-1. 

KT scored a wedge with 5 points in the 6th inning. Leading batsman Kim Joon-tae hit, Shin Bon-ki walked, and Song Min-seop hit the bases with a run, and KT scored two more runs with Park Kyung-soo’s push walk and Kim Min-hyeok’s sacrifice fly. Afterwards, KT, who scored 2 more points with Kang Min-sung’s 2 RBIs and timely hits, made it 8-1 with Kang Hyeon-woo’s push walk from the 2nd base loaded. 

KT scored 3 more points in the beginning of the 9th inning and made a game with a 10-point gap. After two outs, Moon Sang-in’s hit, Kim Min-hyeok’s walk, Kang Min-sung’s two RBIs, and Jung Joon-young also added a timely hit to run away to 11-1. In the bottom of the 9th inning, KT raised Kim Jae-yoon to prevent a run. KT finished the game with a 11-1 victory.
