[st&focus] Why did Park Hae-min ignore Lee Jung-hoo’s gestures?

It was a shock defeat. Although they tried their best, difficulties are expected due to a bitter defeat.

The Korean baseball team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, lost 7-8 in the first round of Group B of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) against Australia held at Tokyo Dome, Japan on the 9th.

South Korea, which is tied to Australia, Japan, Czech Republic, and China in Group B, must win the remaining games to get a ticket to the quarterfinals, which is given to second place in the group.

On this day, Korea was in total trouble for both pitcher and hitter. The most painful mistake was that I lost my concentration even though I was able to make up for the score well enough.

In particular, he left two mysterious scenes in base play.

In the bottom of the 7th inning, with no runners leading to 4-5, Kang Baek-ho (KT wiz), who came on as a pinch hitter, hit a double to ignite the chase.

However, in the process of settling on second base and holding a ceremony, he made the absurd mistake of dropping his foot off the base and was put out, blowing a golden opportunity to tie the game.

Not only Kang Baek-ho’s base run, but also Park Hae-min (LG Twins)’ timid run base play is controversial.

At the end of the 8th inning, the runner with the first runner, who was trailing 6-8, had a chance to load the bases. Oh Ji-hwan (LG Twins) hit a grounder from second base, and Lee Jeong-hu (Kiwoom), a runner from third base, came home.

In the process, the Australian pitcher made a mistake. Catcher Robbie Perkins vacated home to cover first base, but the pitcher did not cover home base.토토사이트

And then the house was empty. Lee Jung-hoo, who had entered the home, understood this and urgently sent a sign to Park Hae-min, who went from second base to third base, to come home.

However, Park Hae-min and the third base runner could not figure it out at all. If Lee Jung-hoo’s autograph was seen and he headed home, it would have been possible to score.

Korea will play the 2nd match against ‘rival’ Japan tomorrow (10th) at 7pm.
