KT Wiz blew the whistle for their 5th consecutive win a day before the end of the first half.

KT defeated Hanwha Eagles 3-2 in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League away game held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 3rd.

Hanwha suffered three consecutive losses.

KT won the game thanks to the dazzling pitching of two left-handed pitchers, Wes Benjamin of KT and Hyun-jin Ryu of Hanwha, and the timely explosion of batting power.

Ryu Hyun-jin continued his strong performance by retiring nine consecutive batters with groundouts until Oh Yoon-seok hit a left-field hit in the fifth inning after two outs, after getting Oh Yoon-seok to ground out in front of the pitcher. 슬롯사이트
