NC Dinos’ Young-soo Oh (23) is on fire again. He came through with two big innings to give the Dinos an early lead.
Oh went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs in the sixth inning against the KIA Tigers at NC Park in Changwon on April 28. The team went on to win 18-3. It was their highest-scoring win of the regular season so far this year.
NC broke the game open with three big innings in the second (five runs), third (six runs), and sixth (four runs). They had already won more than 80 percent of their games in the second and third innings. Oh Young-soo was at the center of it all.
In the bottom of the second inning with a 5-1 lead, Oh hit a timely two-run double over the left field fence to make it 6-1. KIA Socrates’ two-run blast in the top of the third inning started the chase, so Oh Young-soo’s RBI single was important as he scored one more run.
However, NC completely eradicated KIA’s pursuit in the bottom of the third inning. They loaded the bases with no outs and scored two runs on Park Min-woo’s double and Park Gun-woo’s sacrifice fly. Martin’s two-run homer made it 10-3, and Oh Young-soo hit a two-run homer to set the tone for the big win.
After a walk to Kwon Hee-dong, Oh took a 143-kilometer fastball from KIA’s Kim Jae-yeol for a grand slam. It was his fourth home run of the season. His most recent home run came on April 28 against Hanwha. It was his first in about five months and 153 days. It made it 12-3, and NC scored six more runs to complete its highest-scoring win.
After the game, Oh said, “I’ve been in a period of ups and downs in my batting lately,” and laughed, “After a lot of discussions with my batting coach, I’ve gotten my bearings once again at the plate, and I’m glad it paid off in today’s game.”토토사이트
“I am still looking to make contact first in my batting. I want to continue to maintain a good feeling and help the team win, and I would like to thank the fans for coming to the stadium and supporting us today,” he said after his thrilling home run.
After finishing the four-game series against KIA with two wins and two losses, manager Kang Myung-ho said, “Three big innings from the batting lineup were the key to our victory today. Son, Martin, and Kwon Hee-dong played an important role in the team’s victory.” “Congratulations to Son on his 2,400th hit and to Park on his first career home run. We would like to thank our fans for their cheers and support during the holiday season.”
NC will take a day off on the 29th and travel to Daegu for a one-game series against Samsung before traveling to Daejeon for a two-game series against Hanwha.
