The offense pounded out 10 runs on 11 hits. A six-run sixth inning put the game away.
Offensively, Kim Hyun-soo went 2-for-4, Austin had three hits and two RBIs, Moon Bo-kyung had two hits and two RBIs, and Hong Chang-ki had two hits and two RBIs.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said after the game, “On offense, Park Dong-won’s leadoff single gave us the lead in the game, and Kim Hyun-soo’s RBI double was crucial to the win as we were in desperate need of extra runs.
After that, the players showed their focus and delivered big innings, which made the game more relaxed,” said Yoon Kyung-yeop.메이저사이트
