NC Dinos succeeded in sweeping the Kiwoom Heroes in a three-game series during the week.

NC, led by coach Kang In-kwon, won 6-1 in the 15th game of the season against Kiwoom of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at NC Park in Changwon on the 7th. NC

which succeeded in sweeping three consecutive games during the week, cruised to 5 wins and 1 loss in September. 

We continued our pursuit of the leader. NC, which achieved 60 wins (51 losses, 2 draws) in the season, rose to third place, beating SSG Landers (61 wins, 52 losses, 1 draw).

Tanner Turley, who started as a starter, threw a perfect pitch. 

After his KBO debut, he pitched 7 innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 walk, and no runs, the most innings, and earned his 3rd win of the season. Kim Si-hoon (0.2 innings, no runs allowed) and Kim Young-gyu (1.1 innings, 1 run), who came later, also pitched well.

The batting line also took the win, scoring 4 runs on 2 hits, 4 walks, and walks in the first inning alone. 

Son Ah-seop, who is aiming to become the first KBO player to reach 150 hits for 8 consecutive years, performed well with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 walk, and 3 runs. 

Son Ah-seop is only two away from reaching 150 hits. Oh Young-soo also added strength to the team with 2 hits in 3 at bats, 2 RBIs, and 1 run, and Kim Hyung-jun went 2 hits, 1 hit, 1 walk, and 2 runs.

It was painful for Kiwoom to see Jang Jae-young, who started as a starter, collapse after giving up 5 runs on 4 hits, 7 walks, and 7 walks in 2 innings.

 There was severe ball control difficulty. Still, it was a consolation that Yoon Seok-won (2 innings, 1 run), Park Seung-ju (1 inning, no runs), Kim Seong-jin (1 inning, no runs), and Oh Sang-won (2 innings, no runs) pitched well after Jang Jae-young.

The batting lineup was silent again this time, just like the day before. 

Until Lee Joo-hyung’s catch-up home run in the 9th inning

hits by Kim Hye-seong in the 1st and Kim Soo-hwan in the 4th and 8th were the only hits.

 Kiwoom is still in last place and has to return home to Gocheok bitterly.

NC: Son Ah-seop (right fielder) – Park Min-woo (second baseman) – Park Geon-woo (designated hitter) – Jason Martin (center fielder) – Kwon Hee-dong (left fielder) – Oh Young-soo (first baseman) – Do Tae-hoon (third baseman) – Kim Hyeong-jun (catcher) – Kim Joo-won The starting lineup was formed in that order (shortstop).

Kiwoom consists of Lee Hyeong-jong (right fielder) – Kim Hye-seong (second baseman) – Lee Joo-hyung (designated hitter) – Kim Hwi-jip (shortstop) – Ronnie Dawson (left fielder) – Song Seong-moon (third baseman) – Lim Byeong-wook (center fielder) – Kim Su-hwan (first baseman) – Kim Si-ang (catcher) ) went in that order.

NC succeeded in taking the lead from the first episode. Leadoff hitter Son A-seop walked, and with one out and one on first base, Park Geon-woo walked again. 

Min-Woo Park and Martin retired with double hits, but Hee-Dong Kwon reached base with a ball that hit his body with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases, making the bases loaded with 2 outs. 

Oh Young-soo’s 2-RBI first hit continued to shake up starter Jang Jae-young.

Following a walk by opponent Foil and Do Tae-hoon, Kim Hyeong-jun, who has been showing good batting recently, did not miss the opportunity and hit a 2-RBI hit to right, bringing in 4 runs in the first inning alone.

NC brought in two additional points. Leadoff hitter Son Ah-seop came out with a single, and with one out and one out on first base, Park Geon-woo and Martin continued to walk, leaving the bases loaded with one out. Son Ah-seop hit home during Chun Jae-hwan’s sacrifice fly to center field.

Kiwoom was unable to score until the 4th inning due to Tanner’s good pitching.  지울프-토토

After giving up a walk to Kim Hwi-jip in the first inning with two outs and a runner on first base, Tanner succeeded in hitting 10 batters in a row. Kiwoom withdrew in all of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th innings except for the 1st. Additionally, Jang Jae-young had trouble controlling his pitch and left the mound without getting a single out in the third inning.

Meanwhile, NC brought in an additional point in the bottom of the 4th inning. Leadoff hitter Son Ah-seop hit a double thanks to the opponent’s erroneous play. He went to third base when Park Min-woo hit a ground ball, and hit home when Park Geon-woo hit a sacrifice fly.

Afterwards, the streak of 0 continued amid good pitching from both teams’ pitchers. Kiwoom, who was in a hurry to catch up, was tied down by Tanner’s good pitching and had difficulty scoring points. The bullpen pitchers did a good job blocking the NC batting line, but the batting line continued to fail to score runs.

Kiwoom had a runner in scoring position in the 8th inning thanks to Kim Soo-hwan’s hit and Lee Hyeong-jong’s walk, but failed to score.

Kim Young-gyu, who came up with 2 outs in the 8th inning, hit a solo home run by Joo-hyung Lee in the 9th inning. However, after that, Kim Hwi-jip, Dawson, and Jeon Byeong-woo were hit hard, preserving the team’s victory.
