NC Dinos Park Min-woo (30) showed off the aspect of a ‘solvent-type second hitter’ and led the sweep of three consecutive matches with the leading LG Twins.
Park Min-woo started as the second batter and second baseman against Changwon LG on the 27th and led the team to a 5-3 victory with 4 hits and 3 RBIs in 5 at-bats. He played the table-setter role perfectly with leadoff Son Ah-seop (3-for-4 with 4 points). When Son Ah-seop went on base, Park Min-woo called in.
NC, who swept 3 consecutive matches with LG over the weekend, maintained 4th place (55 wins, 2 draws, 49 losses). On the other hand, LG (65 wins, 2 draws, 41 losses), which suffered three consecutive losses, was chased by 2nd place KT Wiz (62 wins, 2 draws, 47 losses) by 4.5 games, who beat the Lotte Giants 2-1 in Sajik.
The match was a bit chaotic from the start. At the end of the first inning, Park Kun-woo, the NC third hitter with no 1st and 3rd base, was hit in the face by a pitch from LG starting pitcher Lim Chan-gyu and was replaced. Lim Chan-gyu was immediately ordered to leave. It was a huge bad news for NC, which lost its central hitter from the start.
At the beginning of the 3rd inning, Park Min-woo, who was on first and third base, caught Shin Min-jae’s floating ball with difficulty, and even caught Hong Chang-gi, the first base runner who failed to return. However, the score was recognized, saying that third base runner Park Hae-min’s home-in was faster than the time Hong Chang-ki was declared out, and the decision was not overturned even after the video was read. NC coach Kang In-kwon appealed to this and was ejected. In the process, the team withdrew and the game was stopped for a while. It was a crisis for NC, which allowed a 1-1 tie.스포츠토토
However, there was Park Min-woo in NC. He did not lose his composure even in a chaotic situation and united the team. In the bottom of the 3rd inning, Yoon Hyung-joon’s sacrifice fly took a 2-1 lead, and in the bottom of the 4th, he stepped up to solve the problem himself. With 2 out, 1st and 2nd base, 2 RBIs, and a double in the middle left, they took a 4-1, 3-point lead. With a heavy hit at the end of the 1st inning and a double to the right field at the end of the 3rd inning, he continued the momentum that contributed to the early scoring.
It wasn’t over. When LG chased by 2 points with Austin Dean’s double in the top of the 6th inning, Park Min-woo broke the flow again. In the bottom of the 6th inning, 2nd base runner Son A-seop was called home with a clean heavy hit from 2nd base. It was the one shot that decided the game in terms of the flow of the game. NC, which added up to starter Seong-young Choi’s 6 innings and 2 runs, who won 5 wins (1 loss), hummed with a sweeping victory.
