Kiwoom Puig started as the fourth batter and right fielder in the match between Kiwoom and KT in the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province, on the afternoon of the 16th. Puig did not fully adapt to the KBO League in the first half. In 70 games in the first half, he batted .245 with nine home runs and 37 RBIs, which was quite different from his original expectations.
However, he is showing a hot bat in the second half. He has a batting average of 0.329, five home runs, and 11 RBIs in 19 games, showing a strong batting sense with Lee Jung-hoo. In the game against KT on the 16th, Puig got on base with two hits and one walk in four at-bats. There was also a unique scene in base play.
Commentator Yeom Kyung-yeop, who was briefed on the game, also said, “Second baseman Puig continues to move on the base to touch Lee Chae-ho’s nerves.” KT pitcher Lee Chae-ho also looked at the second baseman Puig several times and showed concern.
Second baseman Puig advanced to third base with Song Sung-moon’s walk with two outs and runners on first and second base in seven seconds. Puig, who advanced to third base, took a step home from the base and was busy trying to touch Lee Chae-ho’s nerves even more and more. In short, he wanted to disperse the pitcher’s concentration with a fuss that didn’t fit Puig’s heavy size. It was to help the team win even a little more.
KT Wiz won four consecutive games with a 5-4 come-from-behind victory thanks to Bae Jung-dae’s walk-off sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning. The starter Despaigne pitched well with seven hits, three walks, three strikeouts and two runs in six innings, but failed to win. 먹튀검증
Meanwhile, Kiwoom Ahn Woo-jin, who bowed to the nightmare mound with eight runs against KT on the 28th of last month, started the game on the 16th and recorded a quality start with eight hits, one walk, nine strikeouts and three runs until the seventh inning. Unfortunately, he failed to record a victory due to the collapse of the relief team.
