Captain who stole second base three times, his uniform was stained with blood, “I don’t want to hear that I can’t run when I get older”
Oh Ji-hwan started as the fifth shortstop in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Kiwoom Heroes at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 1st and played with one hit, two walks, and three steals.
Oh Ji-hwan, who entered his first at-bat with one out in the bottom of the second inning, picked up a walk and got on base. Later, he went to third base due to a stolen base and a catcher’s throwing error, but unfortunately, he failed to score due to a failed follow-up hit. In the fourth inning, he picked up a walk as the leadoff hitter and stole second base. He then stepped home to score a 3-1 run on Lee Jae-won and Park Dong-won’s double.
Oh Ji-hwan, who was also the leadoff hitter in the sixth inning, hit a hit this time. He then succeeded in stealing bases and succeeded in stealing as many as three bases in the game alone. In the eighth inning with no outs and runners on first base, he did his part by making a sacrifice bunt.
Thanks to Oh Ji-hwan’s performance, LG won 4-2 and won five consecutive games.
Oh Ji-hwan succeeded in stealing three bases on the day and achieved various personal stolen bases. For the eighth time in the KBO League history, he recorded 10 steals for 12 consecutive seasons and recorded 251 steals in his career, surpassing 250 steals for the 20th time.
He also recorded the most stolen bases in a single game. This is the second time that Oh Ji-hwan has recorded three steals in a game. It has been 3029 days since the match against KIA in Jamsil on April 16, 2015.
I met Oh Ji-hwan after the game, and there was blood on the knee of the uniform. It’s a wound to steal.
He said, “It’s a shame that I should have stolen four bases. “All three stolen bases were signed and played,” he said with a smile, “I don’t think 250 stolen bases are a milestone. “If you have played as a main player so far, you should do that much,” he said, adding that he was not very conscious.
However, his record of 10 steals for 12 consecutive seasons is satisfactory. “I knew this record,” he said. It was a coveted record. While playing as a main player, I didn’t want to hear that many players were eliminated or that they couldn’t play when they got older. That’s why I always thought of stealing double digits.” 토토사이트
Oh Ji-hwan rested two days ago against Doosan on the 30th of last month. This is why he did his best by stealing three bases even in the heat. Oh Ji-hwan said, “I can’t make excuses. I took two days off, so I knew that part and went in. So I tried to do my best more. Looks like it worked. I had some strength today,” he said.
As a result of the match, it was 3.5 games away from second-place SSG. Oh Ji-hwan said, “What I felt during this season, there are many sweep wins and sweep losses in the league overall. So I don’t feel safe at all. You have to win the game that you can win as much as you can. That’s why I have to do my best in every game,” he said.
