LG director Yeom Gyeong-yeop shared his impressions of winning two consecutive winning series.
LG won 9-4 against Jamsil NC on the 20th. Starting pitcher Kim Yun-sik earned his second win with 1 run in 5 innings. After Kim Yun-sik, Kim Jin-seong, Jung Woo-young, Ham Deok-joo, Yoo Young-chan, and Jin Hae-soo pitched side by side to complete the victory.
The batting line burned terribly, combining 14 hits. There were only five batters (Sung-Joo Moon, Min-Sung Kim, Austin Dean, Gun-Chang Seo, and Hae-Min Park) who recorded multi-hits. At the bottom of the 7th inning, Austin and Park Dong-won’s solo shot, and Seo Geon-chang, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, and Moon Seong-joo’s 4 consecutive hits scored 5 points and seized the victory. 스포츠토토
With this victory, LG ranked first with a season record of 11 wins and 6 losses. It is the sole No. 1 in 616 days since August 12, 2021.
After the game, coach Yeom said, “Starter Kim Yoon-sik had a crisis in the second inning, but he played a good role as a starter by cutting the flow with good crisis management ability. In a situation where he could have been dragged out in the 7th inning, Ham Deok-joo’s good pitching was a stepping stone to victory.”
He continued, “In the other line, I was able to continue the flow by making runs away from the bottom line of 8th and 9th. Austin and Park Dong-won’s home runs eased the second half of the game easily. Thanks to the passionate support of the fans, we were able to do the winning series. Thank you,” he said.
LG announced Adam Plutko as the starting pitcher for Daejeon Hanwha on the 21st. For Hanwha, Felix Pena will start.
