[데일리스포츠한국 박민석 기자] “A game where veterans showed their magical powers”

KT Wiz won the second double header match 5-2 against NC Dinos at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 28th.

KT finished the ‘Doubleheader of Destiny’ with 1 win and 1 draw and tied the score with Samsung. As kt took the lead in joint leadership, the possibility of a tie breaker unprecedented in KBO league history arose. If kt and Samsung finish the season in a tie, they will play the lead game on the 31st, the day before the wild card game.

As a starting pitcher, Cuevas laid the foundation for victory by showing off a powerful throw in 7 innings, 9 hits, 2 walks, 12 strikeouts and 2 runs.

The winner of this day was the 7th. Yuhan-jun, who appeared as the leading hitter in the bottom of the 7th inning, behind 1-2, went on base with a left-handed hit, and then sprinted to home with Jang Seong-woo’s double in the middle to score the tie. After that, Park Kyung-soo’s just-time hit from 1st and 2nd base and Shim Woo-joon’s just-timed hit from 2nd and 2nd base went off to 4-2.

At the end of the 8th inning, Yuhan-jun nailed the game with a solo shot. It was also his 150th home run of his career.

After the game, coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “It was a game where the veterans really showed their magical power. At the end of the 7th inning, the top officials such as Yuhan-jun, Jang Seong-woo, and Park Kyung-soo did everything they could to win and made a big inning through cohesion. Yuhan-jun’s 150th home run Congrats too. It was a decisive home run that could bring victory.” He said, “Cuevas also pitched his best. He played a good starting role by catching 12 strikeouts with powerful pitching. He said, “I did not give up until the end and saved the fire with concentrated play. I will do my best for the rest of the game.”

Meanwhile, this day was also KT’s last home game.

“As of today, we have finished our home game this season,” said manager Lee. “I would like to thank the home fans once again.”
