Three outs erased in a single at-bat.
The LG Twins, looking to win their first Korean Series KS title in 29 years, are ready. LG turned a triple play in the top of the second inning of Game 1 of the Korean Series KS against the KT Wiz at Jamsil Stadium on July 7.
LG led 2-1 in the top of the second inning. Starting pitcher Casey Kelly induced a grounder to third base from leadoff hitter Jang Jang-woo. However, an error by third baseman Moon Bo-kyung allowed a run to score. Kelly then gave up a single to left field to put runners on first and second with no outs.
Moon Sang-chul, 먹튀검증토토사이트 who has been hitting well in the playoffs, stepped up to the plate. Commentator Lee Soon-cheol said, “KT manager Lee Kang-chul will have a lot to worry about. With a one-run lead, he would have to decide whether to go for a hard hit or advance the runners with a bunt to keep his chances alive.”
Pitch after pitch. On Kelly’s first pitch, Moon took a bunt motion and lined the ball up with his bat.
However, it fell in front of the catcher.
LG catcher Park Dong-won wasted no time in throwing the ball to third, and Moon Bo-kyung, who had taken the base, quickly threw to first for a double play.
As Choi Byeong-dae moved to second base and made a motion to run to third, first baseman Austin gave chase. When Byeong-dae finally made it to third, Austin threw the ball away. The umpire, who had stumbled backwards for a split second, stood up and gestured for the tag. It was a rare moment in the Korean Series when a triple play was completed, even in the regular season.
The KBO’s official scorer initially recorded the play as a triple play. It had been 19 years since a triple had been recorded in the Korean Series since Game 7 of the 2004 Korean Series, but it was soon corrected to a pinch-hitter following Moon Sang-chul’s double.
Moon, who had allowed the leadoff batter to reach base on an error, roared with his teammates in celebration. After erasing the threat of runners on first and second with a single ball, Kelly was able to walk off the mound with fewer pitches.
