[IS 스타] 탈삼진 9개 중 8개 결정구가 스위퍼…페디처럼 던진, KIA 네일

The professional baseball KIA Tigers won a complete victory over KT Wiz, led by a comeback pitch from foreign starting pitcher James Nail, who recorded two consecutive quality starts (less than 3 earned runs in 6 innings).

KIA won 5-1 in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League visiting game against KT held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 3rd.

Nail, who became the winning pitcher against the Lotte Giants on the 27th of last month with 9 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings, also led the team to victory by playing well in 6 innings, allowing 5 hits, no walks, 7 strikeouts, and 1 run (no earned runs).

Nail's ERA fell from 1.50 to 0.75.

KIA gave up the first run due to a defensive error in the top of the first inning.

Nail, who was less fit, allowed hits to Cheon Seong-ho and Kang Baek-ho with one out in the first inning, putting him in danger with two outs and runners on first and third base. While trying to block a double steal during Hwang Jae-gyun's at-bat, the catcher made an error on a bad throw ball and allowed one run.

However, KIA tied the score in the top of the second inning. Lee Woo-sung, Kim Sun-bin, and Seo Geon-chang tied the score at 1-1 with three consecutive hits against KT starter Eom Sang-baek.

Nail shut down the KT batting lineup with a three-way strike for three consecutive innings from the second to the fourth inning, and in the meantime, KIA succeeded in turning things around.

In the top of the 4th inning when the score was 1-1, Seo Geon-chang hit a dominant two-run gun to make it 3-1.

Seo Geon-chang tasted a home run 560 days after the KIA game on September 21, 2022, when he was playing for the LG Twins.

KIA added two points in the top of the 6th inning.

With Kim Sun-bin's single and Seo Geon-chang's double to right-center, with one out on second and third base, Kim Tae-gun exploded with a sweeping, timely hit to make it 5-1.

Even after the nail was down, KIA silenced the KT batting line with Pil Seung-jo at the forefront.

Jang Hyun-sik, Kwak Do-gyu, and Jeon Sang-hyun put up a scoreless fight in the relay, firmly locking the back door.

Seo Geon-chang was in full swing with 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 3 RBIs, and 2 runs, including a home run.

He had a single, a double and a home run, one triple short of the cycling hit.

KT's Cheon Seong-ho continued his high-sensitivity batting skills with 2 hits and 1 run in 4 at-bats, but it was not enough to lead the team to victory alone.

KT Kang Baek-ho attracted attention by wearing a catcher's mask starting in the 8th inning.

KT is internally considering Baek-ho Kang becoming a catcher, and Baek-ho Kang is wearing a catcher's mitt for the second time this season. 메이저 토토사이트
