Only one out in the first inning, allowing 2 hits, 2 walks, and 4 runs.
Choi Won-tae (26), whom professional baseball’s LG Twins acquired through a trade to help them win the Korean Series for the first time in 29 years,
failed to even fill the first inning on the starting mound for the Korean Series.
Choi Won-tae started the second game of the 2023 KBO Korean Series (4 wins out of 7)
against KT Wiz held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 8th and collapsed with 2 hits, 2 walks, and 4 runs in ⅓ innings.
Only 20 balls were thrown. 온라인카지노사이트
Choi Won-tae’s ⅓ innings is tied for the second-lowest number of pitches by a starting pitcher in the Korean Series.
The only starting pitcher who did not record a single out in the Korean Series was Hak-gil Yoon (Lotte Giants) in Game 7 in 1995.
Choi Won-tae’s name was also included in the ‘dishonorable second place record’ held by Kwon Young-ho (Samsung Lions) in 1986,
Moon Hee-soo (Haitai Tigers) in 1993, Choi Chang-ho (Pacific Dolphins) in 1994, and Choi Won-ho (LG) in 2002.
Choi Won-tae played for Kiwoom Heroes until the middle of this season and then wore the LG uniform through a trade last July.
In order to recruit ‘a domestic starter with a strong calculation’, LG gave up its prized outfielder Lee Joo-hyung,
pitcher Kim Dong-gyu, and first-round picks for the 2024 season.
Choi Won-tae, who wore an LG uniform and performed poorly in 9 regular season games with 3 wins,
3 losses, and an ERA of 6.70,
was selected as the starter for Game 2 of the Korean Series after LG confirmed first place in the regular season and has been preparing to pitch.
However, he struggled from the first batter.
Choi Won-tae, who gave up a straight walk to leadoff hitter Kim Sang-su,
gave up a heavy hit to Hwang Jae-gyun and another walk to Anthony Alford,
leaving the bases loaded with no outs.
He took a breather by inducing a ground ball from Park Byeong-ho to third base and catching a runner on third base at home,
but ended up giving up a two-run double to Jang Seong-woo.
LG, who had already lost in the first game, made the decision to let Choi Won-tae go early.
Lee Jeong-yong, who took over the baton from Choi Won-tae with one out and 2nd and 3rd bases,
allowed Bae Jeong-dae to hit a timely hit with 2 RBIs, increasing Choi Won-tae’s earned runs to 4.
