Korean Futures’ most wins, 7 runs confused by Australian baseball… Geelong Mound 2G 20 runs ‘Nanjo’
Geelong Korea could not overcome the Perth heat wall two days in a row. The mound shook greatly, and the batting line was silent.
Geelong Korea, led by coach Lee Byeong-gyu, lost 2-9 in the first leg of the double header against the 2022-2023 ABL 토토사이트 (Australian Professional Baseball) Perth Heat held at Empire Ball Park in Perth, Australia on the 7th (hereinafter Korean time).
Geelong Korea suffered two consecutive defeats following a 0-11 loss the previous day, and recorded 11 wins and 18 losses in the season. On the other hand, the Perth Heat went 17-13.
Geelong Korea: Kim Min-seok (1st baseman) – Lee Jin-young (center fielder) – Park Ju-hong (designated hitter) – Oh Jang-han (left fielder) – Kwang-min Kwon (right fielder) – Kim Tae-yeon (2nd baseman) – Kim Ki-yeon (catcher) – Seo Ho-chul (shortstop) – Kim Seo-jin (3) Baseman) Shun’s starting lineup was formed. The starting pitcher is Park Yun-cheol.
Starter Park Yun-cheol was greatly shaken from the first episode. Table setter Tim Kennelly-Alex Hall’s consecutive walks and wild throws resulted in 2nd and 3rd basemen Junior Caminero’s 2 RBI triple, and Josh Reddick’s sacrifice fly, which contributed 3 runs.
In the top of the second inning, Geelong Korea had a chance to counterattack with a run on first and second bases thanks to hits by lead players Oh Jang-han and Kim Tae-yeon, but Kim Ki-yeon and Seo Ho-chul struck out one after another.
A run was also made in the bottom of the second inning. Leading William Simonate’s double and Conor Owings’ double hit resulted in a sacrifice fly by Tim Kennelly, the first out and third baseman.
Park Yun-cheol could hardly find stability. After allowing a left-handed solo home run to Caminero, who led the team in the 3rd inning, Redick’s hit and wild throw allowed Simonate, the 2nd baseman, an RBI in time.
In the 4th inning, he sent out a heavy hit on the leading hole and a walk on Caminero. Afterwards, Reddick’s choice of fielder led to a 1-run, 1st and 3rd baseman, Ulrich Boyarski, who hit a 1-run wedge double.
In Geelong Korea, pitcher Lee Geun-hyeok of Korea-Japan Tall University pitched in the 5th inning and hit a solo home run to Simonate, giving Geelong Korea a complete win. And in the last six defenses, he conceded an additional run.
Geelong Korea escaped defeat with Seo Ho-cheol’s 1-run double following the leader Kwang-min’s double in the 7th inning. It was the first score in 16 innings of this round. Afterwards, he made up for one more point due to an opponent’s error, revealing the prospects for the second game of the double header.
Starter Park Yun-cheol became a losing pitcher with 7 hits (1 home run), 6 walks, 2 strikeouts and 7 runs in 4 innings. Park Yun-cheol is a right-handed pitcher who was nominated in the 93rd place in the 2019 Hanwha 2nd 10th round after attending Seoul High School-Yonsei University.
The batting line met Perth Heat starter Tyler Beardsley and was tied tightly with 2 hits and 9 strikeouts in 4 innings. Among them, Seo Ho-cheol struggled with 2 hits and 1 RBI.
