Two days ago, 스포츠토토KT failed to escape from its 3rd consecutive defeat by drawing a draw at the end of the 12th inning against Doosan. Instead, he succeeded in strengthening the depth of the bullpen by discovering a new winning team called Son Dong-hyun (22) in the overtime game.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol raised his thumb toward Son Dong-hyun, who played 3 overtime innings against Doosan in Jamsil two days ago ahead of the season’s first match against Kiwoom in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 25th.
On the 23rd, Son Dong-hyun pitched 10 times over the match against Doosan in Jamsil, pitching 30 pitches with 1 hit, 2 strikeouts and no runs in 3 innings. In the 10th inning with Ahn Jae-seok, Yang Seok-hwan, and Kim Jae-hwan, Son Dong-hyun, who made a tripartite retreat, met Yang Eui-ji, Jo Su-haeng, and Kang Seung-ho in the 11th, and ended the inning in an instant with a 7-ball tripartite retreat, and in the 12th inning, 1st baseman 2nd base, Yang Chan was fouled Fly, Ahn Jae-seok handled the second baseman ground ball, and finished the game with a 1-1 draw.
Coach Lee said, “I didn’t win, but Son Dong-hyun showed a good performance. It was a look with a lot of confidence,” he said. “It was impressive to throw the ball into the middle of Yang Seok-hwan and Yang Eui-ji and strike out. Yang Seok-hwan also said that Son Dong-hyun’s ball was good after the game. Even in my opinion, the direct ball was better than Park Young-hyun that day.”
Son Dong-hyun is a right-handed pitcher who left Seongnam High School and joined KT with the 21st pick in the 2nd 3rd round in the 2019 rookie draft. From his first year, he was included in manager Lee Kang-cheol’s mound plan for two consecutive years, but he did not live up to expectations, and eventually went to Sangmu to fulfill his military service. Son Dong-Hyun received attention again as the next-generation young gun responsible for KT’s back door through this year’s spring camp, proving that the coach’s gaze was not wrong in a good fight with an average ERA of 1.93 with 1 win in 7 games.
Coach Lee also gave Son Dong-hyun a personal one-point lesson before the match. Coach Lee said, “Looking at his pitching form, he tends to go out and throw, so he told me to throw with all my strength while standing up. It’s always a story. When I actually did that, two days ago, the fastball restraint came out to 152 km. He looked at him, saying, “The power of the ball is so good that I think I can use it well once I get the ball.”
KT, who is trying to escape from three consecutive losses, is Kim Min-hyeok (center fielder) – Kang Baek-ho (right fielder) – Anthony Alford (left fielder) – Park Byeong-ho (1st baseman) – Jang Seong-woo (catcher) – Moon Sang-cheol (designated hitter) – Oh Yoon-seok (2nd baseman) – Lee Sang-ho (3rd baseman).
