On the 3rd, the match between SSG-Kium of the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League was held at Gocheok Sky Dome. Kiwoom’s Ahn Woo-jin took the mound as a starter, and SSG’s Kim Kwang-hyun took the mound as a starter. At the beginning of the season, Ahn Woo-jin publicly said he wanted to win against Kim Kwang-hyun. Ahn Woo-jin won 11 games of the season with three hits, seven strikeouts, and one walk in seven innings. Kim Kwang-hyun, who was not in good condition, also pitched well with five hits, five strikeouts, and five walks in six innings, but recorded two losses of the season.
The match between Kim Kwang-hyun and Ahn Woo-jin was also interesting, but attention was also focused on the match between Kim Kwang-hyun and Puig, a match between former major leaguers. This season, Puig was stuck with Kim Kwang-hyun with no hits and three strikeouts in six at-bats. After enduring Kim Kwang-hyun’s changeup in his first at-bat in the first inning, he hit Kim Kwang-hyun’s fastball at 3-1, but he was bitten by a fly ball to right field. 토토
In the bottom of the third inning, his second at-bat, he hit a timely hit to bring in first baseman Lee Jung-hoo. Pui ran to second base and performed a ceremony of joy. Puig entered the batter’s box in the bottom of the fifth inning with two outs and runners on first and second base. Kim Kwang-hyun’s body slider hit Puig’s side with the full count. Puig, who was hit by the ball, ran to first base without any pain. Kim Kwang-hyun’s face is distorted. He was very disappointed by his mistake.
Kim Kwang-hyun gestured sorry to Puig, who headed to first base, and Puig also coolly raised his right arm while looking at Kim Kwang-hyun, indicating that it was okay. Later, Kim Kwang-hyun, who handled Kim Hye-sung with a fly ball, tapped Puig’s hip entering the dugout, and Puig also slightly grabbed Kim Kwang-hyun’s wrist and replied to Kim Kwang-hyun’s apology. In the game, Kiwoom won 3-2, escaping its fourth straight loss. He remained in second place with 58 wins, 37 losses and two draws. Leading SSG ended its second straight win. He maintained his lead with 64 wins, 29 losses and three draws.
