▲ ‘Stealing is possible even when the bases are loaded!’ Not only the individual KIA and KBO League 7th Triple Steel
player, but also the rare team record caught the attention of fans in the first half. In the game against KIA-LG in Jamsil on April 29, the 7th triple steel, which is rarely seen in the 42-year history of the KBO League, came out. At the beginning of the 9th inning, KIA Kim Kyu-seong, Lee Woo-sung, and Socrates completed a triple steel that caught the opponent’s defense off guard, eliciting cheers from the fans. In a situation where the game was close, KIA made the record even brighter by performing a base play that was difficult to see and even taking victory.

▲ NC, which taught us how to win with only one hit,
requires many hits and points in a baseball game where you can win only by getting points. However, NC won with only one hit. NC recorded only one hit in 10 innings against Munhak SSG on April 15, but won the game 1:0. With the help of pitchers’ good pitching and instant concentration, NC created the 5th one-hit game victory in KBO league history.
