KT’s Kang Baek-ho, who marked his comeback with an exhilarating grand slam, was doused in cool water by his teammates.
KT Wiz won 16-7 against SSG at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Monday, extending their winning streak to six games against SSG and bouncing back from a crushing loss to LG the day before.
The KT Wiz bats pounded out 13 hits and scored 16 runs, but the highlight of the game was Kang Baek-ho’s grand slam.
Kang came up as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning with the bases loaded and his team leading 9-5.
In a 2B2S situation, Kang Baek-ho, who pinch-hit for Shin Bong-ki, pulled a 139-kilometer fastball from Park Jong-hoon with all his might, and the ball went over the right field fence for a 115-meter home run.
It was Baek-ho Kang’s first hit since returning from the disabled list.
Despite the excitement of his second career grand slam, Kang’s expression was anything but cheerful.
After receiving a rough reception from Jang Jang-woo, who hit him in the helmet, Kang celebrated by high-fiving his teammates in the dugout.
Kang Baek-ho, who returned to the first team on May 5, played in three games as a pinch-hitter and capped his three-game hitting stint with a grand slam.메이저놀이터
