Korean baseball, which was driven to the brink of a cliff, won its first belated victory.
The Korean national baseball team, led by head coach Lee Kang-cheol, defeated the Czech Republic 7-2 in the 3rd round of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) 1st round Group B group stage held at Tokyo Dome, Japan on the 12th and won its first victory of the tournament.
After losing to Australia in the first match and Japan in the second match, Korea, which was on the verge of being eliminated after two consecutive losses, made a drastic change to the starting lineup that day.Park Kun-woo was put up as the number 1 hitter and Tommy Edman was put down as the number 9 hitter. Kang Baek-ho took first base instead of Park Byeong-ho as the designated hitter, and Yang Eui-ji, who hit a home run two days in a row, rose to number 6. As predicted, Park Se-woong stood on the mound.
Awakened Korean lineup, 5 points from the 1st inning ‘Explosion’
Korea, which had a fresh start with Park Se-woong treating the Czech lineup as a tripartite in the first inning, exploded from the bottom of the first inning.
Park Kun-woo, who took the leadoff, went to third base at once with a double and an opponent’s error. Second batter Kim Ha-seong withdrew due to a third baseman foul, but third batter Lee Jung-hoo scored a heavy hit at the right time. 먹튀검증
In Korea, which continued to have chances for 1 out and 1st and 2nd base with Park Byeong-ho’s right-handed hit, Kang Baek-ho, who was ‘death in the ceremony’ in the game against Australia, made a timely hit to make atonement and brought Lee Jung-hoo home.
Yang Eui-ji and Kim Hyeon-soo walked, and Korea scored one more run, and Edmon, who entered the plate with two RBIs in a timely manner, scored 5 runs in the bottom of the first inning alone as both Baek-ho Kang and Eui-ji Yang homered.
Korea, which overcame the baseline, had Kim Ha-seong, who had been silent with no hits in 9 at-bats, as the lead batter in the bottom of the 2nd inning and hit a solo home run over the left fence, marking his first hit with a home run.
