KT Wiz Kim Sang-soo (33) led the team to victory by playing the role of a solver at an important moment like a veteran.
Kim Sang-soo started as the second shortstop in the match against Kiwoom Heroes of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 24th and played an active part with 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 1 point in 4 at-bats.
Kim Sang-soo,먹튀검증 who struck out in the first at-bat, took the lead by making a one-run run against Kiwoom ace An Woo-jin in the third inning without a chance on first and third base. In the 6th inning, as the lead batter, he hit a double and opened the door to the attack. He then scored on Anthony Alford’s one RBI timely hit.
Kim Sang-soo, who entered the 4th at-bat in the 7th inning with KT leading 3-0, with 2 out and 2nd base, hit relief pitcher Yang Hyeon with an RBI and a timely hit to seal the game. Thanks to Kim Sang-soo’s performance, KT won 4-0 and balanced 1 win and 1 loss in 3 consecutive matches during the week.
Kim Sang-soo, who usually played his role in the lower batting line, has recently been placed in the second batting order and is playing an active role like Altoran. The performance of his game, which came out as his second hitter, is a batting average of 30.6 Lee (11 hits in 36 at-bats) and 4 RBIs.
In an interview on the 23rd, coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Kim Sang-soo is a hitter who knows and plays his role according to his batting order. He’s not a veteran for nothing. He does not hit easily from 2-ball and 3-ball in the upper batting order, and hits that increase the number of pitches of the opposing pitcher. He said, “I hope juniors will watch and learn from it.”
KT is staying at the bottom of the league as key players have been injured one after another since the beginning of the season. When the team is in crisis, the role of a veteran like Kim Sang-soo becomes more important. Fans have high expectations of what Kim Sang-soo will do for the rest of the season, as he leads his juniors well despite the difficult team situation.
