The LG Twins fought a difficult battle against the KT Wiz at KT Wiz Park in Suwon from the 25th to the 27th. The result of the series is one win and two losses in the Losing Series. 스포츠토토핫 It was comforting that he escaped the swamp of consecutive losses by winning the last game of the three consecutive games.
Pitcher consumption was significant in three consecutive games against KT. In the first game of the series, LG finished the game with ‘Ace’ Adam Plutko throwing six innings and Yoo Young-chan and Ko Woo-seok throwing one inning each. However, a total of eight pitchers, including Lim Chan-kyu 4⅓ innings, Kim Jin-sung (1⅓ innings), Ham Deok-ju 1⅓ innings, Jung Woo-young 1⅔ innings, Baek Seung-hyun 1 innings, Choi Dong-hwan 1 innings, Yoo Young-chan 1이닝 innings, and Ko Woo-seok 1이닝 innings, took the mound on the 26th.
The previous day’s game on the 27th was much different. LG smiled as it won 9-6, but starting with starter Lee Jung-yong 4 innings, Kim Jin-sung 1 inning, Lee Woo-chan 1 inning, Choi Dong-hwan 1 inning, Jung Woo-young 1 inning, and Ham Deok-ju 1 inning put in six players to tie the KT lineup. A total of 17 LG pitchers took the mound in three games. In response, the head coach stressed that Kelly should lead many innings.
Head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said before the match against Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 28th, The starters should play their roles. The weather is hot, but it becomes difficult when bullpen pitchers accumulate fatigue. This is the most worrisome part, he said. Kelly will have to lead six innings today unconditionally. For the rest of the middle pitchers, they have to lead even if they are hit. I’m going to take it as far as I can, he said.
Casey Kelly’s shoulders became heavy as the pitcher consumption was severe in the weekday game. Kelly, who has been playing as a long-haired ace in LG’s uniform since the 2019 season, seems to be very disappointed this year. Kelly’s performance this season is 6 wins, 6 losses, and a 4.65 ERA in 19 games, but he has not performed as expected except for May 4 wins, 1 loss, and 2.73 ERA.
Kelly is rarely able to regain his ace aspect, but for now, the head coach showed strong trust. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop laughed and said, Kelly should eat innings and throw well, adding, I have hope for returning to my old Kelly. From the coach’s point of view, we have no choice but to expect that. Kelly needs to play a role so that the team can return to normal. I’m desperate, he said emphatically.
There were many losses in three consecutive games during the week against KT, but they were not without income. That is, the team’s batting line is gradually reviving. LG scored one point in the game on the 25th and three points on the 26th, but scored nine points the previous day 27th. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, In fact, I should have won the day before yesterday 26th. I had a bad pitcher, but I couldn’t win because I had a bad batting sense, so I lost in a row, but I felt relieved because the batting exploded, he said adding, Anyway, I feel like I’m hitting, and I can have fun playing baseball and win.
On this day, LG changed its entry. He canceled Song Chan-ui and called up Choi Seung-min, who was recruited through trade. The head coach said, I was going to play about 10 games and sing it, but Sung-joo’s heel came up and raised it earlier than planned, adding, When I saw him running, he had speed. I’ll use it as a loan. If you can’t steal a base, there are other ways, so it will work if you just give me tension, he added.
On this day, LG formed a starting lineup that led to Hong Chang-ki right fielder, Moon Sung-joo nominated hitter, Kim Hyun-soo left fielder, Austin Dean 1st baseman, Oh Ji-hwan shortstop, Moon Bo-kyung 3rd baseman, Park Dong-won catcher, Park Hae-min center fielder, and Shin Min-jae 2nd baseman.
