KT Wiz suffered its first triple play disgrace this season.

In the 11th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Kiwoom Heroes at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Wednesday, KT wasted a bases-loaded 1-2 opportunity in the top of the third inning with a ‘triple play’.

In the top of the third inning, with the team leading 2-0, Anthony Alford and Park Byung-ho led off with a walk and a hit, respectively, but the next batter, Kang Baek-ho, failed to get the ball out of the infield. Moving quickly after the throw, Kiwoom shortstop Shin Jun-woo stepped on second base to force out Alford at second, and then threw to first base to force out Park Byung-ho at first.

Three outs later, the bases were loaded and the inning was over. It was the first triple this season and the 81st triple in KBO history.

It was the fourth time in franchise history that Kiwoom had a triple against Mokdong SK Wyverns (now SSG Landers) on April 16, 2011, Mokdong NC Dinos on July 11, 2015, and Suwon KT on June 30, 2017.메이저놀이터
