“Doyoung’s dad’s smile.” The eldest made up for the youngest’s mistake… The youngest’s reversal. “This is why I’m number one.”

Although the main players are out due to injuries, the KIA Tigers, which has been defending its No. 1 position at the beginning of the season with consecutive wins, has Choi Hyung-woo, the eldest brother who truly loves his juniors.

Choi Hyung-woo, the eldest brother who had two hits and three RBIs including a finishing hit on the previous day, generously praised his juniors in an interview with Soo-hoon. “As you can see, they are doing so well. I am proud of them because they are doing so well that they are perfect,” he said.

The KIA Tigers swept three consecutive games during weekdays against the LG Twins at home in Gwangju, and went on an away game in Daejeon. From the first game of the three consecutive games held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 12th, the KIA Tigers have won four consecutive games by banking on Choi Hyung-woo’s tying hit and the youngest Kim Do-young’s reversing hit.

It started off poorly. In the first inning, KIA starter Yoon Young-chul failed to catch first baseman Seo Geon-chang’s toss when Hanwha Peraza grounded out to the infield, allowing to get on base. Afterwards, Roh Si-hwan’s hit and Chae Eun-seong’s grounder gave up the first run due to errors in defense once again.

Hanwha Ahn Chi-hong’s instructional hit passed backward after hitting KIA third baseman Kim Do-young. Kim Do-young was disappointed after making a mistake on the ball that could have been handled sufficiently. When Yoon Young-cheol on the mound and the youngest Kim Do-young on the third baseman made a mistake and gave up a run in the first inning, Choi Hyung-woo, the eldest brother, came forward from the second inning.

KIA’s Choi Hyung-woo, who entered the batter’s box as a lead-off hitter, properly hit Hanwha starter Peña’s seventh-low curve with a technical hit after the 3B 2S full count match.

Choi perfectly coped with the curve that fell low toward his body. While bending his left knee, he precisely hit the ball to the center of the bat, and exerted his strength to the end. Choi’s tying solo shot over the right fence.

Choi Hyung-woo’s home run revived the atmosphere at the moment when the atmosphere could have been shaken by the younger brothers’ mistakes at the beginning of the game.

When the eldest brother made up for his younger brothers’ mistakes with a home run, Kim Do-hyung, the youngest, cheered up this time. With two outs in the third inning, KIA Kim Do-young boldly turned the bat when Hanwha Peña’s second fastball of 143 kilometers came into the middle at 1B 0S.

“The moment I got hit, I immediately knew it was a home run.” It was a 130-meter homerun with a large flying distance. It was his third of this season. Third baseman Kim Do-young, who failed to help starting pitcher Yoon Young-chul due to defense error in the first inning, recovered his error completely with a come-from-behind solo shot.

When Kim Do-young hit a come-from-behind shot and entered the home, Choi Hyung-woo, who was at the waiting table, welcomed the home run batter with a smile on his father’s face.

Kia won the game 8-4, as Han Jun-su had two RBIs and Hong Jong-pyo had a timely hit, which sealed its victory in the eighth inning. Kia, which has secured its fourth consecutive win, secured the top spot. 퀸알바
