KT WIZ’s Bae Jae-dae (28) is having a hot fall. He has been a standout in every game of the playoffs, leading the team in hitting.
Starting in the No. 8 spot in the lineup against the NC Dinos in Game 4 of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Postseason Playoffs at Changwon NC Park in Changwon, Gyeongnam, at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, he went 2-for-4 with a double, one walk, two RBI, one run scored, and one strikeout. KT Wiz used the platoon’s performance to defeat NC 11-2 and even the series at two games apiece.
On the day, KT Wiz harassed NC starter Shin Min-hyuk from the very beginning of the game. They scored two runs in the top of the first inning, followed by two more in the bottom of the second to quickly make it 4-0.
NC sent Shin Min-hyuk to the mound after just 1.1 innings and brought in Lee Jae-hak. However, Lee Jae-hak gave up a leadoff single to Jang Jang-woo in the top of the third, a sacrifice bunt by Moon Sang-chul, and a single up the middle by Oh Yoon-seok to put runners on second and third.
This is where the batting order came into play. After registering a hit in his first at-bat in the top of the second inning, he hit a two-run double in his second at-bat. It was the game-winning hit.
Bae’s playoff performance has been remarkable. In the first round of the playoffs on March 30, with the score at 1-9, he hit a grand slam to left field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning against NC closer Lee Yong-chan. Although he didn’t win the game, it was impressive enough that he hit a grand slam against the opposing closer. 무지개토토 주소
In the second game, Choi continued his good feelings with a hit and a walk. In the third game of Game 2, he hit a two-run shot to left field against NC starter Tanner Tully. It was the first single postseason multi-homer game in KT Wiz franchise history, and his multi-hit performance helped the team win their second straight game.
After a slow start to the season due to an injury early in the regular season, Choi batted .277 with two home runs and 38 RBIs this season. Nicknamed “The Finisher” for his seven game-winning hits, the outfielder has been a key contributor to the KT Wiz this fall.
