Choi Jeong-i, the main hitter of SSG Landers, took the lead in escaping the team’s losing streak by acting as a ‘fixer’.
SSG won 8-5 in the third game of the season against KT Wiz in the 2023 KBO League held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 20th. Choi Jeong, the leading batter, led the team to victory with his 3rd multi-hit of the season and 3 RBIs.
Choi Jeong-eun, who started as a third baseman and third batter, recorded 3 hits, 3 RBIs and 1 run in 5 at-bats. After the game Choi Jeong-eun said, “Today was a bit of a tough game. Breaking a losing streak is always difficult. I didn’t win easily today. Personally, I didn’t feel good about hitting. Still, the result was good, and it felt good to help the team win a lot,” he said.
Choi Jeong-eun, who was suffering from batting sluggishness with a batting average of .201.8 in 14 previous games, had his third multi-hit game this season and his first three-hit game. 토토사이트
It was the day that stood out among the team’s 4 consecutive losses. Choi Jeong-eun said, “Everything is not good during losing streaks,” and “I try not to show off. He was trying to have a little fun and had a lot of conversation. But in the end, if you win, the atmosphere will improve. So he focused on the game.”
Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “The batters showed a lively offensive power after a long time. In the 5th inning, (Kim) Seong-hyeon hits, (Kim) Min-sik and (Chu) Shin-soo get on base, and in the outfield fly, Shin-soo advances to second base and (Choi) Jeong-i makes a timely hit. It was nice to see,” he praised.
