The KIA Tigers defeated the Kiwoom Heroes two days in a row and completed a four-game winning streak.
KIA won 3-2 in the 5th game of the season against Kiwoom in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 20th. With this, KIA won its 18th win (17 losses) and ran 4 consecutive victories. In addition, a three-game winning series was confirmed this weekend.
Starting pitcher Adonis Medina recorded 4 hits, 3 walks and 2 runs in 5 innings and harvested 2 wins (5 losses) for the season. The bullpen, who followed, worked together for 4 scoreless innings.
After the game, KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “Medina played the role of starting pitcher well, blocking the opponent’s batting line with 2 runs in 5 innings. I started the bullpen a little quickly, but there was a crisis situation, but each pitcher who came up steadily caught outs and self-confidence. He did a good job,” he praised.
The medallion of victory was Socrates Brito. He went 4 at bats with 2 hits, 1 home run, 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Manager Kim said, “It was not easy to score on the other line because opponent pitcher Hurado’s ball was good, but in a situation where we were trailing by one point, Socrates hit a two-run home run in the final and brought the atmosphere back to us. I look forward to it,” he said.스포츠토토
