Baltimore has confirmed its entry into fall baseball. Here, Kim Hyun-soo of LG was also mentioned by local media.
The Baltimore Orioles won 5-4 after an 11th inning overtime game against Tampa Bay in a home game held at Oriole Park in Baltimore, Maryland, USA on the 18th 스포츠토토(Korean time).
As a result, Baltimore, which is in first place in the American League’s Eastern Division, recorded a season record of 93 wins, 56 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.624, securing at least a wild card ticket regardless of the results of the remaining games.
It has been 7 years since 2016 that Baltimore advanced to fall baseball. In particular, Baltimore, which remained at the bottom of the division for three consecutive years from 2017 to 2019, posted dismal results in 2021 with 52 wins, 110 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.321.
Baltimore has changed since then. Based on the minor league system, the team succeeded in rebuilding in just two years. Baltimore, which finished warming up last year by ranking 4th in the district (83 wins, 79 losses) and a winning percentage exceeding .500, finally took the first place in the district this season.
Meanwhile, on the same day, MLB.com also mentioned Kim Hyun-soo along with the news that Baltimore was confirmed to advance to the postseason. LG Twins Kim Hyun-soo was included in the starting lineup for the wild card game in 2016, the last time Baltimore advanced to the postseason.
At that time, on September 29, 2016, when Baltimore’s battle to advance to the wild card was in full swing, Kim Hyun-soo came to the plate as a pinch hitter in the top of the 9th inning in a game against the Toronto Blue Jays held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and fired a come-from-behind two-run gun to defeat Baltimore’s Wild. It served as a signal for the entry into the card market.
