Rather than a decisive blow, the team let out a sigh of relief that they ended their losing streak. Even with his debut home run, KT Wiz Moon Sang-cheol was calm.
Moon Sang-cheol hit the first walk-off home run in the 4th game of the season against the Lotte Giants in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 12th, leading the team to a 2-1 victory.
In the bottom of the 10th inning, Moon Sang-cheol, who entered the plate with two outs, pulled Kim Jin-wook’s 145km/h fastball on the ball count of 1-1 and drew a solo arch over the left wall. Moon Sang-cheol’s home run saved the team from a six-game losing streak.
After the game, he said, “The atmosphere of the team could have calmed down because we lost after winning before, but I feel better because the team was able to break the losing streak than hitting the end game.”
Moon Sang-cheol said, “Kim Jin-wook’s deception was difficult, so I hit the ball with the thought that the timing shouldn’t be too late because the fastball hit more than it looked.” I thought, ‘What if I go over?’” and looked back on the situation where he hit the home run. 토스카지노
Moon Sang-cheol continued his streak of hits in 4 consecutive games from the NC game on the 9th and maintained an upward trend. Regarding the recent good feeling of hitting, he said, “I don’t think it’s meaningless if the team loses. If the team wins, I think it’s better because I contributed even a little bit. What I did well ended that day, and today I came out to the stadium with the thought of winning, and there was nothing to regret.” said.
Recently, as the main batters have been injured due to injuries, there have been many games where Moon Sang-cheol plays a central role in the batting line, and he was placed at number 5 on this day as well. However, he doesn’t care too much about the batting order. He said, “I look at the lineup before the game and look at the batting order once, but whether it is 4th or 5th, I do not give meaning to the batting order and think to hit according to the situation.”
