For the third consecutive day, the NC Dinos came from behind to win the series.
The NC Dinos won the third game of their midweek series against the Lotte Giants on Wednesday at Busan’s Sajik Stadium, 8-1, behind a seven-inning, one-run performance from starter Widener and evenly matched batting performances from Son Asub (3 hits, 1 RBI), Park Min-woo (2 hits, 2 RBI), and Kwon Hee-dong (2 hits, 3 RBI).
Just like in the first and second games of the series, Lotte took the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning. Goodrum led off with a double and Jeon Jun-woo followed with a single, but Park Seung-wook followed with a double to put runners on second and third. It was Lotte’s last scoring chance of the day.
On the other hand, NC, which had been somewhat slowed down by Lotte’s Park Se-woong, quickly turned the game around with three runs in the top of the sixth inning. Son As-seop, Park Min-woo and Park Gun-woo hit back-to-back singles, followed by Martin’s sacrifice fly and Kwon Hee-dong’s RBI single.
NC added one run in the top of the eighth and four in the top of the ninth after Park was relieved on the mound. 메이저사이트
“Our starting pitcher, Widener, pitched a great seven innings and played an important role in our victory,” said NC head coach Kang Myung-ho after the game.
“The bats also showed a decisive performance, converting all three opportunities into runs,” he said.
He also thanked the fans for their enthusiastic support in the sweltering heat. “I’m always grateful to the fans who came here in the heat of the day to support us. With this in mind, we will prepare well for our home game on the weekend.”
