It is April of patience.
Is KIA’s detonator first base? Looking at it calmly, both Hwang Dae-in and Byeon Woo-hyuk are unstable in defensive power. Even after showing a stunning ratio, he commits a mistake that has a fatal effect on the flow of the game. Byun Woo-hyuk made three mistakes in the 8th and 9th innings against Doosan in Gwangju on the 7th. Two errors in the 8th inning virtually divided the game.메이저놀이터
Immediately after the start of the 8th inning, he was hit by a solo shot by Yang Seok-hwan. Still, it was 0-2. For KIA, it was possible to aim for a last-minute overturn if the additional points were blocked. However, after getting a right-handed hit by Jo Soo-haeng, an absurd situation occurred. KIA starting pitcher Sean Anderson missed a check ball. Anderson’s check flew quickly and accurately with Byun Woo-hyuk’s mitt, but Byun Woo-hyuk missed it.
I became second base safely. It wasn’t over. Kang Seung-ho’s missed ball flew in the direction of third base. KIA third baseman Ryu Ji-hyeok kicked it off wonderfully and threw it accurately to first base in an unstable position. But again, Byun Woo-hyuk missed it. At this time, second base runner Jo Soo-haeng turned around third base and dug into the home.
In the 9th inning, Byun Woo-hyeok made a mistake while throwing to catch Shin Seong-hyeon, the first base runner heading to second base. It seemed that the catch was not good, but the scorers gave Byun Woo-hyuk a mistake in throwing. Byun Woo-hyuk made three mistakes on this day alone. KIA pursued one point in the bottom of the ninth, but lost 1-4.
KIA had an experience of collapse after showing unstable defense one after another during the Busan expedition against Lotte at the end of the demonstration game. On this day, the flow was completely overturned due to a mistake, but it is impossible to completely correct this part overnight. It is the first time this season that Byun Woo-hyuk has properly defended first base in the professional league. Hwang Dae-in is also worried about first base defense, but he is also a player who has only played full-time for one year.
Coach Kim Jong-guk evaluated that Kim Seok-hwan’s first base defense was stable at the beginning of the demonstration game. However, Kim Seok-hwan is not in the first team due to poor batting. Anyway, Byun Woo-hyeok and Hwang Dae-in are in a situation where they have to alternate between first base and designated hitter. Even if Na Seong-beom and Kim Do-yeong return, Byun Woo-hyuk and Hwang Dae-in will have to take responsibility for first base.
In the end, the mistake of Byun Woo-hyuk and Hwang Dae-in is the unavoidable KIA tax. We will make a lot of effort to reduce mistakes internally, and we need to show improvement. On the other hand, there is a need to wait for this reality from the outside as well. It is difficult for Byun Woo-hyuk and Hwang Dae-in to raise their defense to the top level in the league overnight. It should be regarded as a kind of tax. Director Kim Jong-kook’s patience will continue until at least April or May.
