The defending champion, kt wiz, defeated the NC Dinos and firmly maintained the 5th place with Park Byeong-ho, who set a record of 20 home runs for 9 consecutive years.

On the 21st, kt won the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League NC match 8-1 at Suwon KT Wiz Park.

KT lost the lead in the first inning by allowing Lee Myung-gi to sacrifice after starting pitcher Eom Sang-baek gave leading hitter Son Ah-seop a triple that exceeded center fielder height.

KT caught the flow as Kim Min-hyuk was on base due to an opponent’s defensive error.

Kim Min-hyuk threw a ground ball to first base, but NC first baseman Park Seok-min missed the ball and got on base.

Park Seok-min started as the first baseman in 3,302 days after the Samsung Lions match against the Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom) on June 6, 2013, and made a mistake as he failed to properly digest the awkward defensive position.

kt did not miss this opportunity.

Kang Baek-ho and Park Byeong-ho’s consecutive hits and foreign hitter Anthony Alford’s three-run homer from the left led to a 4-1 turnaround.

After that, kt became 2nd by Hwang Jae-gyun and Kim Jun-tae, but with Oh Yun-seok and Shim Woo-jun’s consecutive walks, Cho Yong-ho managed to get away with one more point in first and second bases.

In the 6th inning, Park Byeong-ho also hit a timely hit in the left middle on the 1st and 2nd base opportunities.

Park Byeong-ho made an outstanding performance with 3 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 runs in 5 at-bats including a home run.

Homer leader Park Byung-ho hit his 20th home run of the season, surpassing the previous record (8 years) held by Lee Seung-yeop (retired) and building the first 20 home run feat in the KBO League for 9 consecutive seasons.

KT starter Eom Sang-baek scored 6 victories (2 losses) in 6 innings, 2 hits, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts and 1 run.
