Going over the fence on the first pitch as soon as I came out of the batter’s box…At the moment KT’s No. 4 hitter Moon Sang-chul found the answer, he said, “I used to hit it like this.”

KT Moon Sang-chul (33) finished the game at a moment that could have been a long game.

Moon Sang-chul started the game against Kiwoom at Suwon Stadium on the 24th and led the team to victory by hitting a walk-off home run in the 10th inning of extra time.스포츠토토

Coming up to bat in the 10th inning of extra time when his team was tying 4-4, Moon hit Kiwoom Kim Sun-ki’s fastball of 144 kilometers at the first pitch, which flew well over the left fence. Then the game ended.

With this victory, KT not only recorded two consecutive wins following the previous day, but also continued to strengthen Kiwoom. It recorded five consecutive wins against Kiwoom from the Gocheok game on April 17.

He also garnered 1,200 home runs in his team by hitting three long balls. Kang Baek-ho hit a solo homer in the first inning, and Mel Jr. hit a three-run homerun in the fifth inning. Moon Sang-cheol also hit his 1,200th home run.

Moon Sang-chul hit hard with a batting average of 0.356 with 7 home runs and 17 RBIs in 29 games for a month after the opening.

However, he suddenly lost balance in May and posted a batting average of around 10 percent. He had a batting average of 0.171 with one homer and three RBIs in 14 games before the game.

After the game, Moon said he found the answer in the last at-bat against Samsung held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 23rd. “When the double came out at the last at-bat yesterday, I felt like ‘I used to hit like this’, so I took that as a point and went in,” he said.

Recently, as the response to the fast ball was delayed, the sense of hitting also declined. The injuries, big and small, affected the balance.

Moon Sang-chul was hit on the left foot by his foul ball during the match against KIA in Gwangju on April 30. On the 12th, he complained of pain after being hit on the back of his hand in the second game of the double header against Doosan. As these injuries continued, they also affected the hit.

Moon Sang-chul said, “I went out of the game because I said it was okay, but I guess it wasn’t 100%,” and added, “The pace dropped because the results of the game didn’t come out.”

As this situation repeatedly occurred to me, Moon was also considered a judge. “I thought that I should hit well so that I won’t be late to die at bat anyway,” he said. Then came the double and this time, he hit a home run.

Mind control at bat also helped. “I thought I should control only what I can do at bat, not thinking about the outcome,” Moon said. “I was just thinking about hitting in front of him on time because I can’t go out just because I want to.”

Moon Sang-cheol’s walk-off home run is his second in his career. In terms of walk-off, he is the fourth in his career. As such, he has played a role in finishing games in a competitive field.

However, Moon does not care too much about records. He only thinks about playing in the game.

Moon Sang-chul, who played in 112 games, the most since his debut last season, said, “I’m grateful that coach Lee Kang-chul gave me a lot of opportunities.”

“In the past, if I didn’t play one or two games, I thought I couldn’t control ‘I don’t think I could go out tomorrow’, but now I think there are times when I fall down and sometimes I go crazy. If I don’t stop doing what I’m doing because I can’t and don’t change what I’m doing, I can go up one day, so I have some time to focus on what I can do and have some mental leeway,” he said in retrospect.

“I really don’t want to record,” Moon stressed repeatedly. “If you continue to play a lot of games, you will catch up anyway. For example, you have to hit 10 home runs or 20 home runs. My only goal is to play a lot of games without getting sick and stay with the team until the end of the season,” Moon said.
