“Kim Sun-ki’s brilliant comeback was outstanding”.
Kiwoom head coach Hong Won-ki applauded Kim Sun-ki for his first start in 720 days.
Kiwoom rode a strong performance from starter Kim Sun-ki to a 3-0 victory over KT at the Gocheok SkyDome on Sunday.
Kim pitched six innings of three-hit ball with three walks and two strikeouts. It was his first start in 720 days since September 12, 2021, against Sajik Lotte. Yoon Seok-won, Ha Young-min, and Kim Jae-woong took turns on the mound afterward to secure the three-run victory. No. 4 Song Sung-moon led the offense with two hits and two RBIs.
Coach Hong Won-ki said, “Kim Sun-ki pitched a great game. He and Kim Dong-heon, the battery, worked perfectly together until the 스포츠토토 sixth inning and gave 120 percent of their effort,” said Hong.
“The bullpen also did their part by closing out the inning without allowing a run, especially Yoon Seok-won, who continued to pitch well today after yesterday, so we are looking forward to the future.”
“On offense, we were able to set the tone in the first inning with a sacrifice fly by Song Seong-moon and an RBI single by Lee Ju-hyung,” said Hong Won-ki.
