“I’m glad it’s not a serious injury.”
The KIA Tigers, led by coach Kim Jong-guk, won the 4th game of the season against the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Samsung Lions at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 16th and escaped from a 5-game losing streak.
Thanks to the hot explosive power of the batting line that came out in the 7th inning, he seized the victory, and showed solidity by giving up only 2 runs on the mound. The resurrection of Hwang Dae-in and Socrates Brito, who recorded home runs, also raised expectations for the future.메이저사이트

A thrilling moment occurs while playing the game. This is because infielders Ryu Ji-hyeok and Kim Kyu-seong collapsed. Ryu Ji-hyeok was hit in the shin by his batted ball in the first and second innings and was carried away on the trainer’s back. Kim Gyu-seong suffered a blow to his shoulder when he collided with third baseman Kim Young-woong while sliding head first to third base in the 7th inning.
Fortunately, it did not lead to any major injuries. Both players underwent a thorough examination at Semyeong Hospital, and received findings of simple bruises. There is nothing wrong with the bones. I’m so glad In a situation where Na Seong-beom and Kim Do-young were already missing, if another injured person came out, coach Kim Jong-guk might have been more sighed.
Manager Kim Jong-guk, who we met ahead of the Daegu Samsung match on the 17th, said, “I received a report that both players are fine. It’s not a start, it’s waiting for the second half. In the case of Ji-hyeok, the batting average is good, but the on-base percentage is good. He was doing his duty as the No. 1 hitter,” he said. He continued, “I have to manage so that there are no more injured people, but it is fortunate that it is not a big injury and it is a bruise.”
Hwang Dae-in, who was sluggish, came back to life, and Anderson also played his role as a starter. Coach Kim Jong-guk hoped, “Recently, Dae-in has shown a loss of confidence, but I hope he will rebound through the game the day before.” Then, regarding Anderson, who had a good pitch the day before, “I was fine after the first inning, and I endured well. He gave us an opportunity to turn around.”
On this day, KIA Park Chan-ho (shortstop) – Ko Jong-wook (left fielder) – Socrates (center fielder) – Choi Hyung-woo (designated hitter) – Kim Sun-bin (2nd baseman) – Hwang Dae-in (1st baseman) – Byun Woo-hyuk (3rd baseman) – Lee Woo-seong (right fielder) – Han Seung-taek ( Catcher) goes in order. The starting pitcher is Yoon Young-cheol.
