Kium Hong Won-ki embarrassed Jusangwon Hwang-dang at the plate, why did Lim Byung-wook hit an infield single?
Seoul Gocheok Sky Dome on the 22nd. Kiwoom, who fell behind 0-5, took a chance with 2 outs and 1st and 3rd bases at the end of the 5th inning.
Kiwoom Lim Byung-wook, who entered the plate, engaged in a fierce battle of nerves with Doosan starter Raul Alcantara, and played a 메이저놀이터 close battle to the 8th pitch. He cut two forkballs one after another to upset Alcantara, and picked a slider that flew low and dragged it to full count. A situation in which the game turns into an unpredictable flow with one big shot.
Alcantara chose the 8th pitch as a fastball with a speed of 155 km per hour, slightly lower to the body. It was a full count, so the runner on first base started. Lim Byung-wook’s bat spun vigorously.
Doosan second baseman Kang Seung-ho followed the ball as it flew toward second base after passing the pitcher’s side, but the ball stopped suddenly. It was because Joo Seong-won, a runner on first base who was running to second base, got hit by a batted ball because he mispredicted the bounce. Director Hong Won-ki of Kiwoom expressed his regret with a short sigh. This is because it was an opportunity to put pressure on Doosan, considering the lineup leading to the center lineup such as Kim Hye-seong and Ronnie Dawson.
A running runner is out if hit by a batted ball. Interestingly, even if the fielder was able to catch the ball, the batter is given an infield hit. Baseball Rule 5.09(7) states, “If a runner touches an infielder (including pitcher) in fair territory or touches a fair ball that does not pass an infielder (is out).”
The footnote states, “If a fair ball touches a runner before a fielder clears it, it is out, regardless of the runner’s intent.” This is what is called an ‘auto-out’.
With two outs, third base runner Lee Joo-hyung, who was rushing home, couldn’t survive because the innings were over. Lim Byung-wook also had to be content with adding one infield hit.
In this case, how to mark on the baseball record sheet? In the introduction of the baseball record method of the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) Recording Committee, it was explained to mark with an X (X). If a runner heading to second base is hit by a batted ball, it is marked as X-4, and in the batter’s column, a semicircle toward second base (infield hit) is marked.
It looks complicated, but it was Joo Sang-won’s absurd Jurusa that made him realize that he could symbolize almost any situation that could occur in baseball.
