It is difficult to hope for victory when there are five mistakes in a game. NC Dinos, who had been performing unexpectedly at the beginning of the season, fell into a losing streak amid a series of errors.
NC lost 6-10 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against Lotte Giants held at Changwon NC Park on the 22nd. As a result, NC recorded 4 consecutive losses.
In the previous day’s game, NC made a mistake in the defense and missed the game they caught. At the beginning of the 8th inning, when they were leading 2-0, Min-woo Park, who was leading 2-0, was not able to properly catch Kim Min-seok’s double batted ball at first base, and was in danger. Afterwards, the embers spread to the bases safely, and although he induced a double hit, he gave up one point.
Then, in the last two innings, wild fighting came out one after another, and the game was lost. After one out in the 9th inning, Noh Jin-hyeok’s double hit sent the runner to third base, and the next hitter, Han Dong-hee’s sacrifice fly, allowed a tie. Then, in the beginning of the 10th inning, with 2 out 1 and 3 base, he dedicated the winning run to a wild pitch, and eventually lost 2-3.
Before the game on the 22nd, NC coach Kang In-kwon said, “It is impossible for a fielder to go to the game and play without making a single mistake. Ko wrapped up the player. 스포츠토토
However, on this day, NC’s defense was uneasy. Mistakes occurred from the first episode. After starter Shin Min-hyeok got two outs, Ko Seung-min’s third ball was thrown through the crotch by first baseman Oh Young-soo. Fortunately for NC, the next hitter Jeon Jun-woo passed the crisis by stepping back with a floating ball in right field.
However, from the second mistake, it was linked to a score. In the beginning of the 3rd inning, Ahn Kwon-soo’s 2-run homer turned the score 1-2, and NC was then driven into a crisis with 1 company, 2nd and 3rd base. Here, Jeon Jun-woo’s bat caught the end of the bat, and as the rotation was strangely caught, shortstop Kim Joo-won could not properly catch it. In the meantime, the runner on third base stepped home and gave up an extra run.
Mistakes were made in the second and third bases that followed. As Oh Young-soo failed to properly catch Noh Jin-hyeok’s first-base ball, both runners stepped on the home run. Although the batted ball was difficult to catch, the recorder’s judgment was a mistake. Due to a series of mistakes, Lotte gave up 5 points only in the 3rd inning.
