1 point win, 10 consecutive losses… KIA, defense must be strengthened to overcome 12 consecutive battles of death
A really difficult time has come. There are many injured players and it leads to heat waves.
Rhythm is also irregular due to the rainy season. It is a difficult time for players to manage their stamina. The KIA Tigers continue their 9-game series of destined expeditions after 3 home games against Kiwoom, who are on the rise. LG-SSG-kt. There is no team that is not burdensome, but kt is a team that is on the rise recently, and above all, LG and SSG are the first and second teams. It is clear that he will do his best against KIA to win the regular league.온라인바카라
Recently, KIA lost 1 win and 2 losses to LG and 3 losses to SSG. If you make a mistake in the 9th consecutive away game, you may be far from the top 5 competition. It is all the more so because the outline of a mercenary pitcher to replace Medina has not yet emerged. It is still unclear what condition Yoon Young-chul (19), a rookie, will return to. He has to somehow get through this 12-game series well. Then he can buy time as the first half is almost over.
12 consecutive battles of fate with strong teams… Hunger lives only when the win rate is increased by 1 step

In the end, the important thing is not to give more than to give a lot. (Photo = KIA Tigers)
The biggest problem for the KIA Tigers at this point is the one-point game. Park Bing lost all the matches. From the 0:1 loss to Kiwoom on May 21st to the 0:1 loss to Hanwha’s Han Seunghyuk on June 22nd, they lost all games by one point. More than anything, it hurts to lose by 1 point in 3 home games against SSG.
The biggest advantage of the Kia Tigers right now is, of course, the batting line. With Kim Do-young and Na Seong-beom, the other lineup is not left out no matter where it is presented. In addition to Kim Do-young and Na Seong-beom, Lee Woo-seong, Choi Hyung-woo and Socrates are also good hitters. It is not bad to have Ryu Ji-hyeok or Byeon Woo-hyuk (now Hwang Dae-in), who have been leading table setters, in the bottom line.
Recently, Socrates is also showing signs of slowing down.
KIA Tigers Hyung-Woo Choi of the KIA Tigers held a match between the KIA Tigers and Hanwha Eagles at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 20th, and in the top of the 4th inning, in a 1 out 1 base situation, he fired a two-run gun that went over the middle fence and scored 1500 RBIs, rejoicing with his teammates. there is. Choi Hyung-woo, who was tied for the lead with Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop with 1498 runs before the game, set a new record of 1,500 runs for the first time in the KBO. 2023.06.20.
However, the batting line can be silent when a good pitcher comes out. No matter how good the batting line is, if it is silent, it is normal to be quiet. That’s why you shouldn’t trust the batting line in baseball. In the end, what KIA can do right away to improve the game by one point at this point is to ‘strengthen the defense’.
At the time of KIA’s one-point match and loss, there were many times when the defense was shaken and gave points at each critical moment. At the time of losing the game by one point, the shortstop made many mistakes, and there were many regrets about the second baseman Kim Seon-bin was holding out. Kim Sun-bin had a lot of regrets in the defensive range, and Park Chan-ho had a lot of regrets in his concentration on easy hits. Paying a lot is important, but not giving is more important in baseball.
In particular, in matches against strong teams, one defensive mistake leads to defeat.
The coexistence of shortstops between Kim Do-young and Park Chan-ho is quite possible… ‘Yoo Do-young’ is also the way to go someday
Currently, coach Kim Jong-guk’s basic idea is to have Kim Do-young at third base, Park Chan-ho at shortstop, and Ryu Ji-hyeok at second base. Until Kim Sun-bin arrives, Kim Kyu-sung’s utility form can be said to be the current KIA’s core infield formation. In fact, there is no big problem if the defense is stable and runs well. However, at this point, Chan-Ho Park is playing too many games and playing too many games as a shortstop. It is a position that requires a lot of stamina. The number of mistakes also increased to 11. Mistakes rank second among shortstops (NC Kim Joo-won). In the 7th inning
against SSG in Gwangju on June 8, as soon as Choi Ji-min took the mound, Choi Ji-hoon missed an ordinary ground ball, which became the reason for the come-from-behind defeat. SSG, which was trailing 3-4, turned the game around by scoring 2 runs only in the 7th inning as Choi Ji-hoon came back to life, and the game ended with SSG winning 5-4. In the match against Gocheok Kiwoom on June 13, Park Chan-ho made a mistake from the first episode. Park Chan-ho missed Lee Jung-hoo’s shortstop grounder in the situation of 1 out 1 and 1 out and made 1st and 2nd base. It was a bat that should have been a double play, but Russell’s hit allowed the run to run. In the most recent match against kt, there was an error in throwing during the relay play.
Kim Do-young and Park Chan-ho can also coexist at shortstop. Above all, Yoo Do-young is a path that Kia will have to go someday.
Many fans and officials agree that the way to maximize the use of Park Chan-ho and Kim Do-young is to appoint Kim Do-young as a shortstop. The key is that there is a positive aspect in that if the two are alternately used as shortstops, Park Chan-ho gains stamina and Kim Do-young gains experience. It is also the same in terms of being able to give appropriate tension to the two players.
Above all, Kim Do-young, who is the fastest in the team and has excellent hitting, is a way to go someday from the KIA point of view. It means that it is a resource that must be nurtured unconditionally. The reason why the Kia scout team ‘risked everything’ and chose Kim Do-young over Moon Dong-ju was because he was a shortstop. The reason NC, Samsung, Hanwha, Doosan, etc. appoint young players to the position of shortstop is also because it is a position that is difficult to rebuild unless you raise it quickly even if you pay taxes.
Ryu Ji-hyeok’s 3rd base, Kim Kyu-seong’s 2nd base are the clothes that fit the best… How will director Kim Jong-kook’s traffic control be done?
Kim Gyu-seong’s best roll is second base. Although he doesn’t know how to hit, he fills the gap left by Kim Sun-bin in defense. Director Kim Jong-guk is also satisfied, saying, “The basics are good.” Ryu Ji-hyeok can fully support Park Chan-ho and Kim Do-young at third and second base. Ryu Ji-hyeok suits third base perfectly because his throw is stable and he handles the ball that comes in front of him reliably. There are only 4 errors. It is an indispensable resource for KIA.
With the return of Kim Do-young and Na Seong-beom, the KIA has become rich in infield and outfield resources. It is the biggest strength that Kia can overwhelm other teams. In some way, coach Kim Jong-guk must suggest a direction to achieve both stable defense and maximization of offensive power. Indeed, what kind of answer will coach Kim Jong-guk give in the 12 series of deaths, including 9 away games?
