Park Se-woong pitched 6 innings without allowing any runs Lotte beats KT and escapes 4th straight loss

Park Se-woong fights back

Lotte Giants broke their four-game losing streak thanks to Park Se-woong’s fight.

Lotte defeated KT Wiz 2-0 in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League visiting game held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 16th.

Park Se-woong recorded his 4th win (3 losses) of the season by striking out 6 and going 6 innings with 4 hits and 0 runs.

In the second inning, with one out and runners on 1st and 3rd base, he struck out Kim Byeong-jun and, with the help of catcher Yoo Kang-nam, caught 1st base runner Jae-gyun Hwang, who was trying to steal second base, and overcame the crisis with a double out.

Park Se-woong took a breather in the 5th inning, even with no outs on first and second base, by catching pinch hitter Cho Yong-ho’s ground ball and turning it into a double play between the shortstop and first baseman.

Lotte got the winning run when quick-footed No. 1 hitter Hwang Seong-bin, who walked in the top of the first inning, took advantage of KT starter William Cuevas’ checking error and wild pitch to reach third base and then scored on Victor Reyes’ sacrifice fly.

Seongbin Hwang took advantage of the opportunity with a clever bunt hit with no outs on first base in the top of the third inning, and immediately hit Seungmin Ko with a timely hit to right to make it 2-0.

Hwang Seong-bin, who played as a left fielder, reached his peak in the bottom of the 9th inning by climbing over the fence to clear Kang Baek-ho’s foul ball.

Cuevas did his part well, striking out 6 and allowing 2 runs (1 earned run) in 7 innings, but suffered his 4th loss (2 wins) due to a silent batting lineup. 스포츠토토
