Park Byung-ho, Jang Sung-woo replaced simultaneously to protect players…’Challenge for 8 straight wins’ for KT Wolves

KT Wiz mainstays Park Byung-ho and An Bang-manim Jang Sung-woo were replaced at the same time due to injuries.

Park Byung-ho and Jang Sung-woo started as the No. 4 and No. 5 hitters, respectively, against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Jamsil Stadium on Friday.

Things got chaotic in the bottom of the fourth inning when KT trailed 0-4. After Jang Seung-hyun’s sacrifice bunt with the bases loaded, Park Byung-ho was replaced by Lee Ho-yeon, who appeared to be feeling unwell.

There was one more substitution after that. When Heo Kyung-min was batting in the first inning, Jang Jang-woo dropped the ball while trying to block, and he was replaced by Kim Jun-tae to finish the game.

A KT official said, “Park Byung-ho has discomfort in his left calf. He was replaced to protect the player.” “Jang Sung-woo was hit by a ball on his right elbow while blocking. We substituted him for player protection.”안전놀이터

Meanwhile, at the end of the fourth inning, KT was trailing Doosan 0-5. The loss of two key players has put a red flag on KT’s chances of an eight-game winning streak.
