Dinosaur batting line, scary explosion.
It devastated the KIA mound.
28th game in Changwon. In the 14th game of the season against KIA, they pounded out 20 hits, including three home runs, to win 18-3.
After knocking out KIA starter Thomas Pannoni in 1⅔ innings, NC scored 16 runs against three pitchers, including Kim Jae-yeol and Kim Yoo-shin, to break the game open early.
On the first day of the Chuseok holiday, and one day before the Mid-Autumn Festival, the team delivered a hot batting performance in front of a large home crowd at Changwon NC Park. The Kia bats responded with 12 hits, including two home runs, but the difference was in focus.
NC’s 18 runs were the most in the KBO this season. The previous records were 17 runs by Doosan (6/25) and KIA (7/3). This is the most runs scored by NC in a single game this season. The previous record was 16 points against KT in Suwon on May 9.
Rookie Park Han-yeon was lucky to get his first hit on May 24 against Doosan in Changwon.
The rookie hit his first home run of the season in a spirited batting battle. In the eighth inning with a 17-3 lead, Park came out as the leadoff hitter and pulled Kim Seung-hyun’s five-pitch 142-kilometer fastball over the left field fence. A big home run with a distance of 120 meters.
The seniors’ indifference to his first career home run was prolonged. It was a nerve-wracking, but exhilarating afterglow. He went 2-for-2 with two RBIs and two runs scored.
All starters hit except for Park Gun-woo.스포츠토토
Top hitter Son As-seob continued to solidify his batting title, going 4-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored, raising his season average to .347. No. 2 Park Min-woo also went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs, and three runs scored to lead the Kia mound attack.
No. 4 Jason Martin went 3-for-5 with four RBIs, including his 16th home run of the season in the third inning.
No. 5 Kwon Hee-dong also went 3-for-2 with four RBIs, and No. 6 Oh Young-soo went 2-for-5 with three RBIs, including a three-run shot. Two of his hits were long balls, including a home run and a double.
It was a day of perfect harmony between the top and bottom of the lineup, as the NC batters prayed for a day like today, not more, not less.
