Baseball’s Kiwoom Heroes handed KT Wiz, a team that seemed to have “forgotten how to lose,” its second straight loss .Kiwoom won a 3-0 home game against KT in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Sunday behind a six-inning no-hitter by starter Kim Sun-ki and a two-RBI performance by No. 4 hitter Song Sung-moon .Kiwoom, which belatedly reached the 50-win plateau for the season (70 wins, 3 losses, 3 draws), secured ninth place with a three-game winning streak. With the win, head coach Hong Won-ki, who took over the reins of Kiwoom in 2021, reached the 200-win mark after three seasons and 411 games. On the other hand, KT, which had been on a breathless winning streak, was swept by Kiwoom for the second straight day, ending its winning streak (at least two wins out of three games) at 10 games .It’s been 55 days since KT has lost back-to-back games since July 9 against the Suwon KIA Tigers (a four-game losing streak at the time).Kim Sun-ki, who was given the opportunity to make his final start of the season, was outstanding on the day, holding the KT bats to one run on six hits with two walks and two strikeouts. Kim threw a variety of pitches, including a heavy fastball (40 pitches) that topped out at 146 mph, a slider (27 pitches), slurve (18 pitches), curve (7 pitches), and a forkball (4 pitches).It was Kim’s first win of the season (2-2, 1 save) and his first start in 720 days since September 12, 2021, against the Busan Lotte Giants. Kiwoom left-hander Yoon Seok-won, who pitched a scoreless seventh inning with a 3-0 lead, picked up his first career hold after earning his first win the day before .At the plate, Song Sung-moon, batting fourth, went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs, while Ronnie Dawson also had a good day at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored .Kiwoom loaded the bases in the first inning on an infield single by Kim Tae-jin and consecutive walks by Kim Hye-sung and Dawson. Song Sung-moon led off the inning with a sacrifice fly and Lee Joo-hyung followed with a single to right to make it 2-0. In the third, leadoff hitter Dawson doubled and Song scored on an RBI 스포츠토토링크 single.
