Three consecutive multi-hit games. KT Wiz’s steel king, Choi Byeong-dae, comes to life.
On April 27 at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, South Korea, the KT Wiz batted second in the lineup against the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League, going 4-for-4 with a double, a triple, an RBI, and a run scored.
Bae struck out in his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning, but continued his recent hot streak in his second at-bat. In the bottom of the third inning, with runners on second and third, he singled off Lee Jung-yong. In the bottom of the fifth, with runners on first and second, he laid down a bunt that sent Kim Min-hyuk to second base. He even made a hustle play with a head-first slide.
In the bottom of the seventh inning, Choi took advantage of a first-pitch fastball from Choi Dong-hwan for an RBI single. He completed his multi-hit day with a hit in the last at-bat of the ninth inning, trailing 6-9, to keep hope alive. However, he was unable to get a follow-up hit and the game ended.
Bae Jae-dae is the ‘King of Steel’ who played in all the games from the 2020 season to the 2022 season. However, he suffered a fracture on the back of his hand when he was hit by a ball from SSG Landers’ Lee Kun-wook in an exhibition game ahead of this season.
After recovering, he returned to action on June 2 against the Suwon Doosan Bears, but his first-half performance was poor. He had 20 hits, 11 RBI, 15 runs scored, and a .215 OPS with a .544 slugging percentage. However, since the start of the second half, he has been on a tear.
In the second half of the season, Bae has been on fire with 11 hits, seven RBIs, five runs scored, a .524 OPS and a 1.194 slugging percentage. He has reached base in all six games in the second half, including four multi-hit games.
At the end of the first half, the platoon was batting .215 with a .544 OPS. However, in the second half of the season, he had a strong six-game stretch, raising his average to .272 with a .666 OPS.온라인카지노
Thanks to his performance, KT has now won two consecutive games in the second half. They are currently in sixth place with 41 wins, two ties, and 43 losses. They are 0.5 games behind the fifth-place Lotte Giants. They are within reach of the postseason. The starters are coming alive and the bats are coming alive. After being in last place in May, it’s time for KT to show some magic.
