Park Seung-wook hangs his head.
For Lotte Giants infielder Park Seung-wook, the three-game weekend series was a nightmare. Not only were his results at the plate disappointing, but so was his defense.
The opponent was the last-place Kiwoom Heroes. On Friday the 18th, Park batted eighth and played second base. He went hitless in three at-bats, and in the top of the fifth inning, Ronnie Dawson made a throwing error that didn’t get to the shortstop. It was even more disappointing because it could have been a double if it had been handled quickly. Kim Hwijip followed with an RBI single.
On Saturday, the 19th, Kim went 0-for-3 at the plate. Another error came from the defense. In the eighth inning, the leadoff hitter Lee Ju-hyung’s grounder was not handled properly. This led to another run. Lee stole second and came home on Kim Jun-wan’s RBI double.
Park Seung-wook was not smiling on this day either. In the fourth inning, Park failed to catch another grounder from Kim Hwijip, the leadoff hitter. He couldn’t help Park Se-woong. Lee Ju-hyung and Jeon Byung-woo singled. With two outs, Lim Byung-wook hit a two-run double. If Park Seung-wook had gotten Kim Hwi-jip to ground out, the inning would have been over. Both of Park’s runs were unearned.메이저사이트
Park Seung-wook made another unfortunate error in the seventh inning. He didn’t catch Kim Tae-jin’s grounder properly. This set the stage for Kiwoom’s big inning, allowing a 4-6 lead. Kim Sang-soo, who took the mound in the seventh inning, gave up three runs, all unearned. It also cost Park Se-woong his win.
Park was replaced by Jung Hoon to start the eighth inning. Park had two walks but no hits on the day. In the three-game weekend series, Park went hitless in seven at-bats and committed four errors. The team was hoping to avoid a sweep with a hot performance against Kiwoom, but fell short with a 6-7 loss. A weekend series sweep.
Park Seung-wook went to his room full of regrets.
