Still, I’m glad I hit a walk-off home run,” he said.
He then said, “I expected the opposing pitcher to win, and I aimed for the slider because I threw it well. I thought there would be a possibility because the outfield was pulled because it was a walk-off situation, but I didn’t expect a home run. It would be nice to hit 20 home runs, but I am also satisfied with 15 home runs.Our team was weak against Hanwha. “The game didn’t go well today, but I’m glad the results were good,” he said.
KT starter Ko Young-pyo recorded seven hits, one walk, four strikeouts, and four runs in six innings, but failed to record wins and losses.
