KT Kang Baek-ho played as the sixth designated hitter in the match between KT-Kium of the “2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League” at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the afternoon of the 8th. Kang Baek-ho suffered a toe injury in March ahead of the opening. He spent some time rehabilitating without improving his sense of practice in the exhibition game. Then in May, he accompanied the first-tier players, and on the 3rd, he hit one hit in the Futures League and improved his condition.
Kang had no hits in three at-bats against Kiwoom. In the top of the second inning, a ground ball hit against Kiwoom Yokishi with one out headed straight to the second baseman. In his second at-bat, he struck out in the top of the fourth inning. In the third at-bat, the well-hit ball was caught by the first baseman’s line drive. Kang Baek-ho, who has been at-bat a total of 16 times before the Kiwoom match on the 8th, has no hits, including a home run. He played as the fifth designated hitter in a row against Suwon KIA on the 4th and 5th, but he had no hits in 4 at-bats and no hits in 5 at-bats.
It is the first time in four years since 201 that there have been no hits in four consecutive games. After the well-hit ball in his third at-bat was out in front of the first baseman, Kang Baek-ho lost his knock in the dugout and was only looking at the ground. Coach Lee Kang-chul put Kang Baek-ho in the first division and said, “We need to wait and see.” My feet aren’t completely healed either. He has the ability to hit, so he needs time to meet several pitchers. “The team’s recent performance is not bad, so I won’t be stressed,” he said. 스포츠토토킹
