The KT Wiz fell to the bottom due to a series of injuries to key players in the beginning of last year, but while reorganizing, they climbed the limit and advanced to fall baseball for 3 consecutive years with 4 will.

KT also fell to last place this year due to injuries to key players. There were more injured players than last year, and news of injuries continued even after falling to the bottom. Last year, it was only one day that they ranked 10th, but this time it has been over a month. KT coach Lee Kang-cheol spent more time briefing on the condition of injured players than talking about the game or season.스포츠토토

Just like last year, it started coming back. With most of the injured key players returning, you can clearly feel the strength. KT, who had been on a 4-game winning streak since the match against Kiwoom Heroes in Suwon on May 24, immediately fell into a 4-game losing streak, but went on to win another 5 games in a row. Since then, on the 10th and 11th, Kiwoom has lost two consecutive games.

While winning consecutively, he handed over the last place to the Hanwha Eagles and rose to ninth place. As of the 12th, there are 22 wins, 2 draws and 32 losses. It is only a half game difference with Kiwoom in 8th place, 2 games with Samsung in 7th place, and 3.5 games with KIA in 6th place. 6 games behind 5th placed Doosan.

Coach Lee said, “I was in last place, but I didn’t think I was in last place.” He continued, “There was not much difference between the games with the teams above me than I thought. I thought I could go up enough if I had a winning streak or a losing streak.”

He had been thinking that if he endured until the injured players returned, it would be worth trying when he was full. Such a positive mind led to the decision to bring back the ace William Cuevas who had led them to victory.

Cuevas is a pitcher who can serve as an ace as long as he is healthy. Although his contract was terminated during the season due to an elbow injury last year, coach Lee continued to check Cuevas’ physical condition. He wasn’t performing very well in the US, but he knew how to throw well before his injury, so his performance was fine.

KT’s strength is its strong starting team. KT’s formula for victory is that the starters lead more than 5 innings to create scores that allow the other line to win, and that Seung-gwon Kim Min-soo, Son Dong-hyun, Park Young-hyun and Kim Jae-yoon protect the victory. During the recent winning streak, KT showed starting baseball, and the players themselves say, “It’s getting better while playing our baseball.” It is unfortunate that Joon Sohn was out of the season due to elbow surgery, but even with the starting lineup composed of Cuevason, Wes Benjamin, Koh Young-pyo, Um Sang-baek, and Bae Chae-seong, it is possible to challenge for the top 5.

Will KT make a miracle to go from last place to fall baseball for two consecutive years?
