Choi Hyung-woo, KIA 4th batter. KIA

The 4th hitter of the tiger corps that came back broke the flying eagle corps ace. KIA Choi Hyung-woo (38) drew the final blow to Hanwha Kim Min-woo (26) in his 4th hitter comeback game in a month.

Hyung-woo Choi started as the 4th designated hitter in the ‘2021 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ away with Hanwha at Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park on the 2nd. In the 5th inning against 1 to 1, he hit a double at the right time to break the balance at 1st and 3rd base.

He hit a forkball with a speed of 134 km/h, which Min-woo Kim boasted, and hit the ball to the left of left fielder. Third base runner Kim Tae-jin stepped on the groove with ease and turned the tide.

KIA, which gained momentum with Choi Hyung-woo’s one shot, even came out with a wedge guitar. In the following 1 company 2nd and 3rd bases, Lee Jung-hoon hit Kim Min-woo’s 141km/h fastball and swept two RBIs and doubles.

Kim Min-woo is the ace of Hanwha, who was tied for first place with many wins (6 wins and 2 losses). On the 14th of last month, Kiwoom and away were on an upward trend of three consecutive victories. At home, Daejeon has also been strong with three straight wins since April 9 against Doosan. Kim Min-woo took the third loss with four runs in five innings.

On this day too, Kim Min-woo blocked the KIA line with one point until the fourth inning. Kim Min-woo, who struck out Chan-ho Park in the 2nd and 2nd runs, struck out without conceding even in the 3rd innings without a hitch in the crises of 1st and 3rd. While sacrificing Kim Tae-jin’s stolen base with catcher Jae-hoon Choi’s escort ball, Min-woo Kim beat Hyung-woo Choi with a heavy fastball in the mid-140km from the 1st and 3rd bases that followed, leading to a blow to third base.

However, there were no two failures for Hyungwoo Choi. In the 5th inning, one-on-one, tight match, 1 company, 1st and 3rd base, Choi Hyeong-woo pushed Kim Min-woo’s main weapon, the forkball, outward as the forkball flowed outward. It brought the flow with a single RBI double that penetrated the opponent’s defensive shift. Here, KIA, who had a complete victory with Lee Jung-hoon’s double RBI double, nailed the wedge with Hwang Dae-in’s single RBI double in the 7th inning.

Before the game, KIA manager Matt Williams welcomed Hyung-woo Choi’s 4th comeback. Hyungwoo Choi was excluded from group 1 due to retinal disease after an expedition with KT on the 2nd of last month. Choi Hyung-woo, who played as a substitute the day before and adjusted his sense of practice, made his first start in a month on that day.

Williams said, “With the arrival of Hyung-Woo Choi, we have been able to make a thick starting lineup,” and said, “It will be a great help to the team.” Williams also said, “The team has to live when there is a chance.” KIA was at the bottom of the team in scoring (average of 4.2 points), with 7 wins and 15 losses in May without Choi Hyung-woo.

Such KIA Taseon seems to have woken up as soon as Choi Hyung-woo arrived. Also, when the solver did his part when it was important, the other players also gained strength.

On this day, Choi Hyung-woo recorded 1 hit, 1 RBI, 2 runs in 4 at-bats. It wasn’t flashy, but the sound was great. Min-woo Kim and Jae-hoon Choi, who were hit with a forkball by Hyung-woo Choi, played a fastball game with the next batter, Jeong-hoon Lee, and threw a loss-of-play and were hit with a wedge guitar. It means that Choi Hyeong-woo attacked Kim Min-woo’s forkball, which has been fierce recently.

In the end, KIA won 5-3 and escaped from 3 consecutive losses. Hyeong-woo Choi’s just-time hit was recorded as the final hit. Left-handed rookie Eui-ri Lee won his second win (one loss) of the season with five innings, three strikeouts, three hits, three walks and one run. Eui-ri Lee, who also won her first victory against Hanwha, emerged as a natural enemy of the Eagle Corps.

Choi Hyung-woo became the oldest hitting king last year (3.50, 4 ri) and showed off his strength with 28 homers and 115 RBIs, and renewed his contract for three years and 4.7 billion won. It is the second free agent (FA) jackpot after opening the era of the first ransom of 10 billion won after the 2016 season. With the return of the 4th batter, KIA is aiming to leap into the mid-range.
