‘First home run against Ryu Hyun-jin’ Kim Sung-wook “I was overpowered…I was aiming for a mistake”

It was NC Dinos’ Kim Sung-wook (31) who hit the first home run against Ryu Hyun-jin (37-Hanhwa Eagles) in his return to the KBO after 12 years.

Kim, who hit a come-from-behind three-run home run to win the game while his team’s bats were struggling to get on base against Ryu, said he was impressed with Ryu’s pitching, but that the one pitch he took advantage of was crucial.

NC won a thrilling 4-3 come-from-behind victory over Hanwha in the 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League at Changwon NC Park on Sunday, thanks to Kim Sung-wook’s three-run homer in the fourth inning and Choi Jung-won’s game-winning run in the eighth.

Despite winning the game, the NC bats were unable to get on base as they were overwhelmed by the pitching of Ryu Hyun-jin, who was chasing his 100th career KBO win.

The NC bats, which had managed just one hit through three innings, had runners in scoring position in the fourth inning when Seo Ho-chul singled to right and Kwon Hee-dong walked, putting runners on first and second with nobody out. Kim Sung-wook stepped up to the plate and delivered the decisive blow against Ryu Hyun-jin, who was pitching a perfect game.

On a one-pitch, one-strike situation, Kim took Ryu’s 139-kilometer cutter up the middle for his sixth home run of the season, a three-run shot over 120 meters to left-center field.

After allowing Kim Sung-wook’s first home run since returning to Korea, Ryu fell short of the win requirement, giving up three runs on seven hits and eight walks with two strikeouts in seven innings, leaving his 100th career win to another day.

After the game, Kim Sung-wook said, “I saw Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitches coming in on the borderline of strike and ball, and I thought he definitely had a good delivery.” “I went up to bat with the idea that I was going to get one out, but it happened to be one of those pitches, and I hit it without missing it, which led to a good result,” he said.

“I was excited before the game because I thought I was going to 토토 meet Ryu Hyun-jin, whom I had watched on TV since I was in school,” he said, adding, “When I stepped into the batter’s box, I realized once again why Ryu Hyun-jin is a great pitcher.”

Kim Sung-wook, meanwhile, has been on a tear, hitting four home runs in his last 10 games.

“I’m feeling satisfied that the preparation I’ve been doing since winter is paying off,” he said, adding, “If I can continue to play this season without getting injured, I think there will definitely be good results.”
