The LG Twins defeated Kiwoom Heroes and took revenge for the defeat they had suffered the day before.
LG defeated Kiwoom 1-0 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 11th.
LG made a winning series by finishing 3 consecutive matches during the week with 2 wins and 1 loss.
LG, which has reached 20 wins (12 losses), will rise to second place in the league if the Lotte Giants lose to the Doosan Bears on this day.
Starter Lim Chan-gyu, who stepped on the mound after 13 days, laid the foundation for victory with a good pitching of 6 innings, 3 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts and no runs.토토사이트
This is the first quality start (less than 3 earned runs over 6 innings) recorded in the 4th start this season. Lim Chan-kyu has been pitching as a starter since the middle of last month in place of Lee Min-ho, who left due to injury.
Lim Chan-gyu threw only 80 pitches with efficient pitching, and mixed fastballs (31) with curveballs (24) with large drops to cook Kiwoom’s batting line. He threw 18 changeups and 7 sliders.
Lim Chan-gyu, who blocked the first inning with a tripartite offense, gave up a walk after a run in the second inning, but struck out Park Chan-hyuk and Lim Byeong-wook in consecutive swings.
In the 3rd inning, after two deaths, Lee Jung-hoo hit left and Lee Won-seok allowed a walk, and was in danger of conceding, but Kim Hye-seong caught a floating ball and put out the fire.
In the 4th and 5th innings, he only received one hit and did not give up until second base, and in the 6th inning, he once again made a tripartite to fulfill the victory requirement.
Since then, Yoo Young-chan, Ham Deok-joo, and Park Myeong-geun have appeared 7 to 9 times and collaborated on a ‘team complete win’.
Kiwoom starter Jeong Chan-heon also struggled with 6 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and 1 run (1 earned) in 6 innings, but could not overcome the run early in the game.
In the bottom of the first inning, lead batter Hong Chang-ki hit a double to right field, and after two outs, Austin Dean’s timely hit to the left eventually became the final hit.
It was regrettable that LG could not easily solve the game by missing additional points in a row.
At the end of the 3rd inning, Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo had consecutive hits and stolen bases to create a chance for 2nd and 3rd base, but Austin retreated with a ground ball to the 3rd baseman.
In the 4th episode, luck followed, but it did not produce results.
After one out, Moon Bo-kyung’s ground ball bounced high in front of Kiwoom first baseman Lee Won-seok and became an infield hit.
However, Kim Min-sung foul-flyed and Park Hae-min hit a ground ball to blow up the scoring opportunity.
