’50cm short… 2 doubles’ Park Byeong-ho, “Moon Sang-cheol’s home run played a big role. It boosted the energy of the dugout”

 KT’s 4th hitter Park Byeong-ho started for the first time after returning from a hamstring injury and led the team to victory with 3 hits (2 doubles) and strong hits. Park Byung-ho praised, “Moon Sang-cheol’s home run was more decisive.” 

Park Byeong-ho returned to the first team entry on the 12th and played as a pinch hitter in all three consecutive Lotte matches on the weekend. No hit in 3 at-bats. Park Byung-ho started as the designated hitter number 4 in the match against LG held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 16th. 4 at-bats, 3 hits, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored. KT scored 15 hits and won big, 12-7. 

Park Byeong-ho, who had been withdrawn with a strikeout in the first inning with 2nd out and 3rd base, entered the plate in the 3rd inning with 1 out and 1st and 3rd base. In the first inning, Cho Yong-ho, who came in as the third hitter in place of Alford, who fell out due to back pain after hitting a double hit, made up for one point with one RBI and timely hit, and pursued the game 1-4.

Park Byeong-ho caught up with opponent starter Kim Yun-shik by 3-4 with 2 RBIs and doubles coming out of the top of the fence in the middle. Then, Sang-Cheol Moon pulled Yun-Sik Kim’s slider and hit a two-run home run (Season 4), turning the game over to 5-4. 

In the 5th inning, with the score tied at 5-5, KT seized the victory with a 4-run big inning. With 1 out and 1st base, Park Byeong-ho created a chance for 1st and 2nd base with a left-handed hit. Moon Sang-cheol walked and got the bases loaded with one out, and Park Kyung-soo sent all three runners home with a double that landed on the left line.

Park Byung-ho came out as the lead batter in the 7th inning with a lead of 9-5, hit a double on the left line, and was replaced by runner Jung Joon-young. Afterwards, Jung Joon-young scored. 

Park Byeong-ho said after the game, “My legs are at about 60 percent, so I’m running while controlling my run. It doesn’t affect my hitting at all.” He said that he was not sorry for the two RBI doubles in which the home run was canceled as he was 50 cm short in the third inning. 

Park Byeong-ho said, “The third inning scored and Sang-cheol’s (reversal two-run) home run was great. When a home run comes at a crucial moment, it has a big impact on the atmosphere. That one shot made the dugout overflow with energy.” “They made fun of me while feeling regretful. I didn’t get a home run, but I needed points, and I got a long hit. Sang-cheol played a big role.” It wasn’t too bad that he didn’t hit a home run because Moon Sang-cheol hit a come-from-behind home run right behind him. 스포츠토토

Park Byeong-ho explained, “For the time being, I’m going to be the designated hitter, but I have to play the role of the center hitter. I can’t sprint. On this day, he cautiously ran to second base after hitting two doubles. 

KT is the lowest. The biggest reason is that there are many injured people. Park Byeong-ho said, “Injury will be an excuse. It is important that someone get a chance and succeed because of an injury. If the players play evenly with today’s game as an opportunity, it will improve in the future.”
