온라인카지노The ‘man of the clutch’ proved once again that he is not just a name. Song Sung-moon was the solution to the Kiwoom Heroes batting lineup without Lee Jung-hoo.

In the third game of the weekend series against the Lotte Giants at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 23rd, the Kiwoom Heroes came from behind to win 7-6, 1 run, after a 370-minute battle that included a comeback, two ejections, an 84-minute suspension due to heavy rain and ground maintenance, and 10 extra innings, thanks to Song Sung-moon’s game-winning hit in the top of the 10th.

It was a depressing day for referee Kim Seo-soo. After more than six hours of full-time play, the downpour suddenly stopped, forcing the umpire to call an 84-minute stoppage to repair the pitch. Throughout the game, there were many emotional confrontations with the players over strike-and-ball calls, resulting in the ejection of Lotte manager Larry Sutton and Kiwoom Yong-kyu. In the final inning, he was hit by a pitch that left him in agony.

On the other hand, it was the best day of his career. In the top of the eighth inning, it was Kim Hye-sung who almost had the game-winning hit. With the score tied at 4-4, she had runners on first and second with no outs. However, Lotte’s Yoon Dong-hee threw Kim Dong-heon out at second base. Song Sung-moon followed with a two-run double.

However, Song’s first glory was cut short by LOTTE’s Jeon Jun-woo’s tying two-run shot, sending the game into extra innings in the top of the 10th.

Two batters later, Kiwoom Dawson doubled to load the bases, and Lotte walked Lee Won-seok, the leadoff hitter, despite Song’s earlier double.

“I had a lot of important chances in front of me, so I tried to swing simply. If I had lost or tied…I’m glad I won,” he sighed.

Keum Dawson is all smiles after his home run.
What was going through his mind on the last pitch of the game? “Honestly, I was a little angry inside. Of course, my performance was bad, but I had two hits earlier… I thought I had to finish it off. My competitive spirit kicked in,” he emphasized. “He’s a tough pitcher the closer he gets, so my goal was to hit the pitches I could see and make an in-play. Luckily, the forkball came a little high and it worked out well,” he added.

“At first, I was really disappointed that our chances were stopped, but then it was raining so much that I thought it would be difficult, but everyone worked so hard that I’m able to do this interview. In fact, my back feels like it’s going to break. I’ll have to lie down all day tomorrow.”

Song Sung-moon also talked about the ball-calling issues that came up repeatedly throughout the day, saying, “Just like I can’t hit or make a mistake when it’s important, I think the referees are human, too. Of course, I get angry,” he laughed.

Kiwoom was faced with the catastrophe of losing Lee Jung-hoo to injury. Song Sung-moon said, “I hope the checkup results are good. It’s a position I can’t fill alone. He’ll miss at least 10 days, so we’ll all pull together and play hard.”
