It was a difficult game, but I would like to praise the players who remained focused until the end.”
LG Twins coach Yeom Kyung-yeop achieved his first doubleheader victory as head coach thanks to the players’ support.
LG won 8-3 in the first game of the double header against SSG Landers in the 2023 KBO League regular season held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 17th.
It was a game that showed the concentration and determination of a league leader. On this day, LG scored only 2 points until the 5th inning, but after resuming from a rain stop in the 6th inning, they immediately scored 3 points. Shin Min-jae, who had been on base before, advanced to third base due to a stolen base and an error on the opponent’s throw. Afterwards, Kim Hyun-soo’s tying double and Moon Bo-kyung and Park Dong-won’s consecutive timely hits led to LG’s success in bringing about the momentum.
On the mound, starter Lee Jeong-yong’s crisis management and the bullpen’s excellent pitching stood out. On this day, Lee Jeong-yong faced several crises, but completed his mission by allowing 3 runs (1 earned run) in 5 innings. Then, Yoo Young-chan recorded a scoreless inning to help the team turn things around, and the bullpen, including Park Myung-geun, Kim Jin-seong, and Ko Woo-seok, pitched well without allowing any additional runs. In particular, Go Woo-seok, who came on the mound in the 8th inning when the score was tied with one out, second and third base, proved his presence as a closer by blocking the first and two-third innings alone.
After the game, Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “In the 6th inning, Shin Min-jae’s good base running, Hyun-soo’s tying hit, and Bo-kyung’s winning hit in a critical situation helped set the overall trend. Dong-won’s lucky hit led to an additional run, contributing to the victory. “We were able to bring energy to our side,” he said.
He continued, “Starter Jeong Yong played his role as a starter well by overcoming many crises, and Myeong-geun and Woo-seok, who were members of the winning team, played the right baseball.” He added, “In particular, Wooseok’s 5 outs were unreasonable, but he organized them neatly. “I would like to praise him as the best decorated player today,” he said.메이저놀이터

I am grateful to the fans who supported us hard.”
