Professional baseball SSG Landers won a thrilling comeback victory over the KIA Tigers thanks to the outstanding performance of rookie Park Ji-hwan.
SSG came from behind to win 7-6 after a fierce battle in the 10th inning of overtime in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League home game against KIA held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 11th.

The hero of this day’s game was rookie Park Ji-hwan.
Park Ji-hwan, who graduated from Se-Gwang High School and joined SSG this year as a first-round pick, hit a 2-RBI triple against KIA’s closer Jeong Hae-young in the bottom of the 8th inning when SSG was trailing 4-5 with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases, over the height of the center fielder. It exploded.

After landing on third base, Park Ji-hwan was happy and pounded the ground with his fist.
KIA tied the game with Lee Woo-sung’s timely hit on a counterattack in the top of the 9th inning, and SSG tied the game in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 outs and runners on 1st and 2nd bases, and when 2nd base runner Guillermo Heredia was caught at home with a strange decision when Ji-young Lee’s left-handed hit was also part of Park Ji-hwan’s ‘heroic narrative’. It was a sketch to complete.

Park Ji-hwan, who came to bat with one out and second base in the 10th inning of extra innings with the score tied at 6-6, called home Tae-gon Oh, who was on second base, with a timely hit to right-center.
This is Park Ji-hwan’s first walk-off hit since his debut.

Park Ji-hwan, who performed well right after the opening but suffered an injury to the back of his hand after being hit by a ball and was left out of the first team, returned to the first team on the 9th against the Busan Lotte Giants and hit his first home run in his debut in the first game of a doubleheader.
On this day, he started as the 9th hitter and second baseman and performed well with 3 hits and 3 RBIs in 5 at-bats, heralding the birth of a star.

For KIA, the team’s best player, Choi Hyeong-woo, hit his 10th home run of the season in the 7th inning, but the shine was overshadowed by the team’s loss.
Choi Hyung-woo appeared as the leadoff hitter in the 7th inning, hitting a high slider from SSG left-hander Ko Hyo-jun and hitting his 10th solo shot of the season over the right wall.

Choi Hyung-woo, who previously hit a single in the first inning, added this home run (4 doubles) to tie the record for most bases in the KBO League (4,077) established by Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop during his active career.
In addition, the number of double-digit home runs in consecutive seasons since 2008 increased to ’17 seasons.’

Double-digit home runs for 17 consecutive seasons is the second in the KBO League, and the record was achieved by Choi Jeong (SSG), who continued the record for 19 consecutive seasons.
