KT Bae Jeong-dae, who prevented a complete defeat with bases loaded in the 9th inning, said, “I was pushed out in batting and defense.”
‘Awesome player’ Bae Jeong-dae (KT Wiz) has hit seven walk-off hits in his professional baseball career.
If you count his sacrifice fly, he has recorded a walk-off eight times.
Every time he was in danger, he saved the team from danger with his surprising performance.
Bae Jeong-dae did not prevent the team from losing in the first game of the playoffs against NC Dinos on the 30th,
but he hit a grand slam that was enough to lift the mood. 카지노사이트
Bae Jeong-dae hit a grand slam by hitting the first pitch fastball from Lee Yong-chan,
who came on in relief with bases loaded and 2 outs, in the bottom of the 9th inning when the game was tied 1-9.
It was the 19th grand slam in postseason history and the 6th grand slam in playoff history.
KT, which was being unilaterally pushed by NC’s firepower, was the only one that could take comfort.
It was also a moment of revenge for the mistake of not being able to get NC Kwon Hee-dong’s sweeping triple hit into his glove in the 4th inning with 2 outs and runners on 1st and 2nd base.
Bae Jeong-dae, who met ahead of Game 2 on the 31st, said, “There are still games left and we have to win today,
so (the grand slam in the 9th inning) is a good thing for the team and for me.”
He added, “If we prepare well for Game 2 today based on this, we will get better results.
I think so,” he said.
Regarding the game from the previous day, he said, “The feel itself was not bad,” and “(starting pitcher) William Cuevas threw well, and the NC players played very well.
I think we were a little behind in batting and defense.”
NC recorded 13 hits and 9 points the previous day, and KT scored 9 hits and 5 points.
In defense, it was disappointing that KT Hwang Jae-gyun missed Park Min-woo’s fly ball in the top of the 3rd inning with the team tied 0-2,
causing an additional run, and starting pitcher William Cuevas allowed a bunt to second base in the top of the 4th inning.
Regarding missing Kwon Hee-dong’s batted ball, Bae Jeong-dae said, “I chased the ball well,
but the last catch didn’t go well,” and added,
“I feel very regretful and feel sorry for (then pitcher) Lee Sang-dong.”
At the same time, he said, “I think we need to pay the most attention to the defensive aspect
in the second and third games because invisible mistakes can change the mood.”
