Kiwoom Heroes Choi Won-tae (26) collapsed in the 3rd inning, leaving the worst pitching this season.
Choi Won-tae pitched as a starting pitcher in an away match against the Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 4th.
In the first inning, Choi Won-tae got off to a shaky start by getting a left-handed solo home run from Jose Pirella, the first batter. However, he handled Kim Ji-chan with a shortstop grounder, Koo Ja-wook with a right fielder’s floating ball, and Oh Jae-il with a first baseman’s grounder.
The 2nd time was fine. Choi Won-tae caught Kim Tae-goon with a fly ball in center field, then tied Kang Han-wool and Lee Seong-gyu with a fly ball in right field.
However, he dropped his head in the third inning. Choi Won-tae dedicated a heavy hit to Lee Byung-hun, and caught Lee Jae-hyun’s bunt ball and threw it to first base. However, the throwing ball escaped Kim Hye-sung’s glove, which entered the first base cover, and was safely driven to second and third base. Since then, Choi Won-tae gave up a left-handed hit to Pirella and two RBI hits to Koo Ja-wook, increasing the number of runs.
The nightmare isn’t over. In the ensuing 1st 3rd base crisis, Choi Won-tae got a superior two-run home run from Oh Jae-il, and Lee Seong-gyu allowed 2 RBIs and 2nd base in 1st 1st and 2nd bases. Only in the third inning, Choi Won-tae scored 7 runs.
Choi Won-tae, who was on the mound in the 4th inning, caught lead hitter Pirella with a shortstop ground ball, but gave consecutive hits to Kim Ji-chan and Koo Ja-wook. At the 1st, 1st and 3rd base hump, Choi Won-tae dedicated a sacrifice fly RBI to Oh Jae-il, and then Kim Tae-gun hit a left-handed double with 1 RBI.
Choi Won-tae, who recorded 83 pitches, passed the mound baton to right-hander Kim Jun-hyung in the 5th inning.스포츠토토
