KT Wiz right fielder Kim Min-hyuk caught it. And gave up the first point.

The game between LG Twins and KT Wiz held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 6th. A tight pitching battle between KT starter Wes Benjamin and LG starter Casey Kelly continued.

Benjamin, the ‘LG killer’ with an ERA of 0.71 in all 4 wins against LG, continued to pitch well as expected with 2 hits, 1 walk, and no runs until the 5th inning, while Kelly, who had been sluggish against KT this year with an ERA of 9.00, allowed 2 hits and no runs until the 5th inning. It was an interesting pitching battle with unexpected good pitching.

In the top of the 6th inning, LG had an opportunity to score first. Following No. 2 Shin Min-jae’s left-handed hit with 1 out, Shin Min-jae runs through the hit-and-run strategy and No. 3 Kim Hyun-soo pushes out, making a left-handed hit, putting them on 1st and 3rd base.

Austin’s at-bat at number 4. Austin retired in the top of the first inning with two outs and a grounder in front of the third baseman, and walked after two outs in the top of the fourth inning. After the first pitch, Austin swung the bat on the second pitch, and the batted ball flew far to the right. Right fielder Kim Min-hyuk quickly ran to the right foul line, reached the KT bullpen, jumped, and caught the ball falling into the net. Seeing this, third base runner Shin Min-jae tagged up and ran home to score. LG took the lead with a score of 1-0.

Because it was a foul fly, Minhyuk Kim may or may not catch it. Considering the point where the batted ball lands and the quick feet of third base runner Shin Min-jae, it would have been difficult to win the home game if the ball was caught. If you catch it, you get 2 outs, but you get 1 point. If you don’t catch it, it’s a foul and the ball count is 1B1S, and the game continues between Austin and Benjamin. If it had been called a foul by not catching it on purpose, I don’t know what the result would have been. They may have given the first point and an extra point, or they may have induced a double play and prevented a scoreless score.

Kim Min-hyuk’s choice at the time was to catch slugger Austin and increase the number of outs.

They gave up one more run in the top of the 8th and 9th inning, falling behind 0-3, and as their defeat deepened, whether or not Kim Min-hyuk caught it became meaningless. However, the bottom of the 9th inning was completely forgotten. Against opponent closer Go Woo-seok, Jang Seong-woo’s timely hit and Bae Jeong-dae’s hit led to a 2-3, 1-run lead, but with 2 outs and the bases loaded, Hwang Jae-gyun hit a lucky walk-off hit that went over the glove of third baseman Bo-kyung Moon, giving them a 4-3 comeback victory. What you reap. In the joy of victory, all previous disappointing plays were erased from memory.
