“Starting pitcher Lee Yi-ri gave up a run in the first inning because of a bad pitch, but he kept the game scoreless until the fifth inning, which relieved the pressure in the middle innings.”
KIA head coach Kim Jong-kook 현금홀덤사이트 shared his thoughts on the win over Samsung Electronics in Pohang on Wednesday. Kia pounded the Samsung mound with 17 hits, including hits from all of its starters. Kim Do-young and Park Chan-ho completed four-hit games, while Choi Hyung-woo and Socrates combined for six RBIs.
Lee Yi-ri was roughed up for five innings and four runs (eight hits, four walks, four strikeouts), but the offense came through for his ninth win of the season.
“Lee Yi-ri gave up a run in the first inning due to a bad pitch, but he kept the game scoreless until the fifth inning, which relieved the pressure on the middle innings, and Lee Jun-young, who came in after him, saved the day, which helped us win,” said Kim Jong-guk after the game.
“The batsmen also showed great concentration at every opportunity to come up with big innings and turn the game around, especially the table setters, who did a great job of creating chances, and the clean-ups who converted them into runs. Our batsmen from 1 to 9 have been doing a great job in recent matches.”
“I would like to praise all the players for not losing their focus in the hot weather even though they were playing a tough game every game,” said Kim Jong-guk. “Finally, I would like to thank the fans who traveled all the way to Pohang to support us, and we were able to end the series with a win.
