Ah Choi Jeong!’ KT Benjamin’s perfect streak was broken after 6⅔ innings 


KT Wiz Wes Benjamin’s perfect streak stopped in 6⅔ innings.

Benjamin appeared as a starting pitcher in the away game against SSG Landers held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 12th. Benjamin went on a perfect streak, not allowing a single runner to get on base.

On this day, SSG deployed a large number of right-handed hitters considering left-handed pitcher Benjamin. Only Choi Ji-hoon, who batted first, was a left-handed hitter, and the remaining eight players were all right-handed hitters. Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder) – Kim Kang-min (designated hitter) – Choi Jeong (third baseman) – Guillermo Heredia (left fielder) – Ha Jae-hoon (right fielder) – Kim Seong-hyeon (shortstop) – Oh Tae-gon (first baseman) – Ahn Sang-hyun (second baseman) – Jo Hyeong-woo (catcher) The starting line-up was arranged as follows.

Many of SSG’s starting hitters, including Choo Shin-soo, Park Seong-han, Choi Joo-hwan, and Han Yu-seom, are left-handed hitters, but on this day, the lineup was different.

However, Benjamin actually pitched his best pitch of the season against right-handed hitters. We got out quickly from the first inning. In the bottom of the first inning, leadoff hitter Choi Ji-hoon was treated with a foul fly by the third baseman, then Kim Kang-min was returned with a fly to center field and Choi Jeong was struck out with a missed swing.

The second inning ended with 9 balls. Heredia’s batted ball was caught as a straight hit by the second baseman, and Ha Jae-hoon hit the first pitch, but was retired by a grounder to shortstop. Seong-Hyun Kim then struck out on a three-pitch swing. Episode 3 was also a three-way failure. Tae-gon Oh, Sang-hyun Ahn, and Hyeong-woo Cho were the bottom hitters in the batting order with two strikeouts and a ground ball in front of the pitcher.

Benjamin, who faced Choi Ji-hoon, Kim Kang-min, and Choi Jeong again in the 4th inning, all got outs in the infield, and the atmosphere became increasingly strange as the 5th inning entered. With Heredia back with a not-out strikeout, Ha Jae-hoon with a ground ball to second base, and Kim Seong-hyun with a ground ball to third base, not a single batter reached first base until the fifth inning. As the game was fought in a fast count, the number of pitches was only about 60.소닉카지노

The good fight continued. Benjamin, who struck out Oh Tae-gon in the 6th inning, tried a surprise bunt when the second batter of the inning, Ahn Sang-hyun, was blocked by third baseman Hwang Jae-gyun’s defense and was able to ground out. And Cho Hyeong-woo struck out while standing.

Bottom of the 7th inning with KT leading 1-0. Benjamin lightly disposed of leadoff hitter Choi Ji-hoon with a catcher’s foul fly, and Kim Kang-min also caught Kim Kang-min with a fly to right field. However, Choi Jeong, the league’s best hitter, blocked Benjamin’s perfect streak. In the bottom of the 7th inning, with 2 outs and no runners, he pulled Benjamin’s 147km fastball in 2b2s and turned it into a double that landed next to the left fielder. This is the moment when Benjamin’s perfect 6⅔ innings was broken.
