“Socrates-Choi Ji-min praise, but…” Director Kim Jong-guk, there is no ‘complete satisfaction’ even if you win

KIA grabbed Kiwoom and ran two consecutive victories in demonstration games. Both pitches had the upper hand. Director Kim Jong-guk (50) also showed satisfaction. However, there are some regrets. It’s a defense.

KIA won a 6-2 reversal in the 2023 KBO League demonstration game Kiwoom and match held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 15th. 1 run in the top of the 3rd inning, 2 runs in the bottom of the 4th inning. However, he scored 2 points in the 5th inning, 1 point in the 6th inning, and 2 points in the 8th inning.

Starter Sean Anderson recorded 2 hits, 3 walks, 1 strikeout and 2 runs in 3.2 innings. The fastball, which reached the maximum speed of 150 km/h, was good, and the breaking ball was also good. He gave up three walks as his pitch faltered slightly, but he confirmed that he had power on the ball.

In the bullpen, fourth pitcher Choi Ji-min showed clean pitching with 1 hit and 2 strikeouts in 1.2 innings. Jeon Sang-hyun, who came up next, also made a one-inning perfect. Including this, 6 bullpen players came up and did not give up a single point.

In the batting line, Kim Do-young hit a solo home run wedge in a timely manner and flew with 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 runs. Socrates Brito led the team to victory by hitting a come-from-behind final two RBI double. Kim Ho-ryeong and Lee Woo-seong also produced one hit and one RBI each. 더블유 토토

After the game, coach Kim Jong-guk said, “In the chance created by a walk in the middle of the game, Socrates played a good role as the center hitter, so we were able to turn around successfully. Even after that, we were able to win today as the hitters concentrated on each chance and scored an extra point.”

“I also want to commend Choi Ji-min, who took the mound at the end of the 5th inning in a crisis situation with 1 out and 1st and 3rd base, and successfully blocked 1.2 innings with no runs. He has been showing a steady appearance since spring camp, and I hope he maintains his current condition well. Pitchers who came up later, such as Kwak Do-gyu, also did their part. However, the pitchers showed some disappointing aspects in the defense, but we will make up for it well for the rest of the period.”

Lastly, coach Kim said, “Anderson, who started as a starter today, pitched aggressively, although his command was a bit uneasy. I expect to raise the pace well in line with the regular season.”
