KT Benjamin, Who Returned 11 Rruns to 11K, “Successfully Took Revenge on Hanwha”

KT Wiz foreign starter Wes Benjamin succeeded in getting revenge against the Hanwha Eagles.

Benjamin led the team to a 7-1 victory in a professional baseball game against the Hanwha Eagles held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 24th with a powerful pitching of 2 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 11 strikeouts, and 1 run (1 earned run) in 8 innings.

The decision win over Hanwha starter Ryu Hyun-jin (5 innings, 7 hits, 7 runs) was meaningful, but Benjamin first thought of the match against Hanwha on the 31st of last month.

At that time, Benjamin allowed 11 hits (2 home runs) and 11 runs (11 earned runs) in 3 innings against Hanwha and suffered their first loss of the season. 파워볼게임

In the rematch that took place 24 days later, he completely avenged himself by striking out as many runs as he gave up at the time.

11 strikeouts is Benjamin’s record for most strikeouts in his career.

Benjamin, whom we met after the game, said, “I’ve been waiting to face Hanwha again, and I’m happy that we got a good result.

I’m proud that we succeeded in getting revenge.”

Benjamin wittily said, “I knew that many fans wished for Ryu Hyun-jin’s 100th win, but I also had to repay my debt to Hanwha.”

Regarding Ryu Hyun-jin’s slump that day, he said, “I think he will bounce back because he is a great pitcher.

It is difficult to adapt to a different league.”

Benjamin recalled that increasing his arm angle after the Hanwha match on the 31st of last month was effective.

Benjamin reflected, “In the off-season, I lowered my arm angle to increase my speed and reduce the strain on my neck, but when I raised it again, my vertical movement improved.”

Wes Benjamin, who achieved his 3rd win (1 loss) of the season, predicted that KT, which is currently in the bottom tier, will rebound like it did last year.

KT was pushed to the bottom until June 6th last season, but then made a huge leap forward, finishing the regular season in second place and advancing to the Korean Series.
