Anthony Alford (KT Wiz), who had been hitting for 7 consecutive games, was replaced due to a sore toe problem.스포츠토토
Alford started as a left fielder for the 3rd batter in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League KIA Tigers match held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 22nd, but was replaced after only one at-bat.
Alford came to the plate in the bottom of the first inning with a runner on first base. However, Eui-ri Lee’s first pitch curve headed towards Alford’s left foot. Alford complained of his pain after being hit by the ball. In the end, he got out of the dugout after being replaced by runner Ahn Chi-young.
A KT official said, “Alford was hit by a ball on his left toe (3rd and 4th) and will be moved to a nearby hospital for a checkup.”
Alford has improved his sense of hitting by hitting in seven consecutive games. Last week, he recorded 8 hits, 1 home run, 3 RBIs, 5 runs, a batting average of 0.381 OPS and 1.054, contributing to KT’s 10th consecutive winning series.
On the other hand, with KIA’s attack in the top of the 3rd inning underway, KT took a 2-0 lead at the end of the 1st inning with Moon Sang-cheol and Hwang Jae-gyun’s 1 RBI and timely hit. KIA narrowed the score to 2-1 with Choi Hyung-woo’s one-run home run in the top of the second inning.
