KT Wiz Park Byung-ho swung a hard hit and celebrated his 4th comeback.
On the 16th, Park Byeong-ho started as the designated hitter in the away game against the LG Twins in the 2023 Professional Baseball KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul, and scored 3 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 runs in 4 at-bats, leading KT to a 12-7 victory.
This was the first time Park Byung-ho’s 4th placement since the match against Samsung Lions (2-3 KT loss) on the 29th of last month. After suffering a left hamstring injury while playing base at the time, he was canceled from the first team entry and returned to the first team on the 12th. Afterwards, Park Byung-ho only played the game as a pinch hitter in three consecutive matches against the Lotte Giants, which took place in the home from the 12th to the 14th.

After striking out in the top of the first inning, Park Byeong-ho’s bat returned fiercely in the top of the third inning, with the team trailing 1-4. In one company, first and third base, he received a 4-pitch 143 km fastball from opponent starting pitcher Kim Yun-sik, and hit the center wall with a timely double with 2 RBIs. It was a large ball hit enough to confirm whether it was a home run or not by video reading immediately after. He also scored a goal by stepping on the left-handed two-run four of the follow-up hitter Moon Sang-cheol.
Park Byeong-ho, who gained momentum, produced a hit in the top of the 5th inning when both teams were tied 5-5. With one out and first base connected by Cho Yong-ho’s walk, he hit the opponent’s right-handed bullpen pitcher Kim Jin-seong’s first pitch 124km fork and scored a left-handed hit. Afterwards, he scored a goal by digging into the home on Park Kyung-soo’s 3 RBIs and a timely hit to the left.
In the top of the 7th inning, Park Byeong-ho, who took the lead and recorded a left-handed double and showed off his high-sensitivity hitting, was replaced by runner Jung Joon-yeong and finished the game. This is the first time Park Byeong-ho has three hits.
In addition to Byeong-ho Park’s strong hit, Jang Seong-woo (2 hits in 5 at-bats, 1 RBI), Park Kyung-soo (1 hit in 5 at-bats, 3 RBIs), and starting pitcher Wes Benjamin (5 hits, 2 homers, 1 walk in 6 innings, 7 strikeouts, 5 runs, 1 earned run) showed strong performances. KT, which even added a reverse fight, defeated LG and escaped from a two-game losing streak, belatedly able to step on the 10-win (2 draws and 22 losses) hill.
After the game, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Park Byeong-ho, Jang Jun-won (1 hit in 5 at-bats), and Jeon Jeon (0.2 innings scoreless), who returned from injury, showed good performances. I think it will help the team in the future,” he raised his thumbs up.
Park Byeong-ho said, “I went out as a pinch hitter (in Lotte’s three-game series last weekend), but I felt very sorry for the team for the part I missed due to an injury vacancy.” In the future, the main hitter should do well and the other hitters should also perform evenly to score points. Today’s game is positive in that respect.”토토사이트
KT suffered from a headache at the beginning of the season due to injuries to key players. However, on this day, pitchers Joo Kwon and Jeon Yong Joo, as well as infielder Jang Joon Won, returned to the first team. It’s like slowly putting a puzzle together.
Park Byeong-ho said, “Right now, our only excuse is that we have a lot of injured players. However, it is also important who takes the opportunity to fill the empty seats of injured players and succeeds,” he said. It will help. I also have to prepare well.”
