KT advances to Korean Series with 0-2 → 3-2 comeback win using right players

Manager Lee Kang-cheol watches the game

Game 5 of the 2023 KBO League Postseason Playoffs between the NC Dinos and the KT Wiz at Katie Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, on Friday afternoon. KT manager Lee Kang-cheol watches the game in the second inning.

KT WIZ manager Lee Kang-cheol's determination shone through in Game 5 of the best-of-five playoffs (PO) with a ticket to the Korean Series on the line.

He pulled out his pinch-hitter card when he needed to and turned the game around, and even when his starting pitcher was struggling, he saw a "one-ball" and boldly changed pitchers to prevent a run.

KT punched its ticket to the Korean Series for the first time in two years with a 3-2 win in Game 5 of the PO against the NC Dinos at Katie Weeds Park in Suwon on Friday, a "reverse sweep" that saw the team win three straight games after losing two.

The first to make a move was the KT bench, which was down 0-2.

After failing to get a runner on base against NC starter Shin Min-hyuk until the bottom of the fifth inning with one out, KT made a decision when Jang Sung-woo broke the no-hitter with a double and Moon Sang-chul singled to put runners on first and third.

They took out Oh Yoon-seok, the No. 7 hitter who had only one at-bat earlier, and brought in Kim Min-hyuk.

Kim Min-hyuk was the 'trump card' of the playoffs, as he had only appeared as a pinch-hitter and was showing good feel for the game with two hits in four at-bats.

He repaid the bench's faith in him with a tying, 카지노사이트랭크 two-run double over the first baseman's head on a changeup.

Manager Kang Myung-ho drinks water

Game 4 of the 2023 KBO League Playoffs (PO) between the KT Wiz and NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park in Changwon, Gyeongnam, on March 3.

At the beginning of the game, with NC trailing by four points, head coach Kang Myung-hyun drinks water while watching the game.

The NC bench didn't leave Shin Min-hyuk alone after he was pounded for three straight hits.

With runners on first and second, they brought in left-handed pitcher Kim Young-kyu, who struck out Choi Jae-dae and Choi Soo-ho in succession to put out the flames.

In the top of the sixth inning, the KT bench made another shrewd move.

After giving up two runs in the fifth inning, starter Wes Benjamin gave up a single to leadoff hitter Park Gun-woo and threw a fastball to the next batter, Kwon Hee-dong, and promptly replaced him with Son Dong-hyun.

The decision by the KT bench, who realized that Kwon's pitch had dropped, paid off.

Even with runners on first and second on Kwon's sacrifice bunt, Son Dong-hyun got Jason Martin to fly out to center field and Oh Young-soo to ground out to short to end the game.

In the top of the seventh inning, the KT bench showed patience by letting Son Dong-hyun finish the inning.

After coming in with the bases loaded in the top of the sixth and getting through the inning without allowing a run, Son gave up a double to Son Ah-seop two batters later in the top of the seventh after the team had cut the deficit to 3-2.

Even though the bullpen had two strong options in Park Young-hyun and Kim Jae-yoon, the KT bench had Son face Seo Ho-chul.

Facing Seo, Dong-hyun fought off a fastball and induced a fly ball to right field to complete his mission. 섯다
