KIA 34-year-old captain and 29-year-old multiman left at the same time…Double damage? The worst was avoided

KIA captain Kim Sun-bin (34) and third baseman Ryu Ji-hyuk (29) were hospitalized at the same time in the same game. They were unexpectedly injured during the game.

KIA Champions Field in Gwangju on 꽁머니 the 17th. Kim Sun-bin started the home game against NC as the No. 6 second baseman and Ryu Ji-hyuk as the No. 2 third baseman. Kim went 0-for-1, and Ryu went 0-for-2. This is not the most important thing. The fact that they went to the hospital with this record hurts KIA.

First, in the top of the fourth inning. With the bases loaded, NC Jason Martin’s pitch hit Kim Sun-bin in the hand and deflected into the outfield. Kim stayed down. It wasn’t his gloved left hand, but his throwing right hand. The speed of the ball was too high for Kim to dodge.

The first thing he did was get an X-ray at a hospital near Gwangju, which revealed a suspected fracture in his right thumb. According to the KIA, Kim will be transferred to a hospital specializing in fractures in Seoul on the 19th for further examination. It’s hard to know his exact condition, but it doesn’t look good.

This is not the end of the story. Tablesetter Ryu Ji-hyuk also left. Ryu came to bat in the bottom of the sixth inning with the bases loaded. He was hit hard on the right instep by a five-pitch 메이저토토 slider with a 1B2S count against NC starter Taylor Widener. He was stretchered off, but Ryu escaped the worst of it. According to KIA, it was a right pinky toe contusion.

For KIA, the loss of Kim Sun-bin and Ryu Ji-hyuk at the same time is very damaging. Both of them have a big stake in the batting order. Multi-backup Kim Kyu-sung can play all infield positions, and Byun Woo-hyuk can play both corners, but the difference in weight between having Kim and Ryu is huge. If Ryu Ji-hyeok can play on the 18th, we can breathe a sigh of relief.
