9 wins and 5 losses. Although they are running 1st and 2nd without riding, LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop has many regrets. Coach Yeom met with reporters before the NC game at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 18th and expressed regret that, judging from the content of the game, we should have won at least two more games.
The timing of the pitcher change was particularly disappointing. On the 16th, LG lost a 4-1 lead to Doosan. In the 7th inning, Kim Jin-seong hit a 3-run homer off Doosan Yang Seok-hwan to tie the game. Director Yeom said, “I should have written (Jung) Woo-young, but I hesitated for a while and missed the timing.” The resignation against Lotte on the 11th is also disappointing. After leading 4-2, he gave up 4 runs in the 6th inning. If the game on the 16th should have put Jin-seong Kim down and Woo-young Jung put in, but he couldn’t, the game on the 11th should have put Jin-seong Kim in instead of Woo-young Jung, but he couldn’t. Director Yeom said, “As a result, it was correct to include (Kim) Jin-seong, not Woo-young. He was worried about walks, but he got into trouble by actually giving up walks.” Jung Woo-young came up to 1st and 2nd base at the end of the 6th inning on the 11th, and gave a walk to Han Dong-hee, the first batter. Afterwards, Noh Jin-hyeok and Ahn Chi-hong were hit, and the game was overturned as an error came out.
Director Yeom said, “When we are winning, ‘one tempo fast’ is the basic replacement, but we couldn’t do that.” 스포츠토토
LG is struggling with the line injury of the main axis at the beginning of the season. The departure of starters Lee Min-ho and Pil Seung-jo and Baek Seung-hyeon is especially regrettable. If it’s comforting, it’s the comeback of Ko Woo-seok, the finisher. It is expected that the temporary finisher Lee Jeong-yong will feel more stable in the 9th episode, which he has been anxiously guarding.
Manager Yeom said, “Today (18th), regardless of the game situation, I will unconditionally raise Go Woo-seok in the 9th inning.” It is to raise the pitching sense. Go Woo-seok does not fight this week. It will start operating normally from next week.
