‘Ham Deok-ju and Lee Sang-gyu.’
On the 21st, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop mentioned a hopeful element while looking back at the 12th inning of the previous day, which ended in a 1-1 draw at Jamsil Stadium. It was the pitching of Ham Deok-joo and Lee Sang-gyu.
Manager Yeom said, “It was a tough game with a lot of leftovers. The fact that there were so many leftovers means that the pitchers of both teams blocked it well.” was registered for the first time and threw well,” he said.
Ham Deok-joo took the mound in the 9th inning the previous day and blocked it neatly with no hits, 3 strikeouts and no runs in 2 innings. Along with multi-innings, the speed of the fastball came out to 146 km. He recovered his fastball speed during his past Doosan days.
On the 20th, Lee Sang-gyu was called up to the first team entry as his status was changed from a foster player to a full-time player. He pitched 12 extra innings and allowed one hit and no run in one inning. Director Yeom said, “There were two left in the 12th inning, Kim Dae-hyun and Lee Sang-gyu, but in case a long relief is needed today, Kim Dae-hyun was left behind and Lee Sang-gyu was put up. I considered it to have better control.”
At the end of the ninth inning, with the score tied 1-1, LG took the chance to secure 1st and 2nd bases, as Jung Joo-hyun’s defensive interference on first base and catcher Choi Jae-hoon’s hitting interference caused the referee to make a mistake. Manager Yeom said, “I was lucky, but Min-seong failed to save both bunt and buster,” and “we couldn’t save each other a big chance. It rained,” he said.
In the top of the 11th inning, third baseman Kim Min-seong, who caught a bunt ball from 1st and 2nd base safely, and shortstop boldly threw the base cover to third base and threw it out. Coach Yeom explained, “It’s a 75% bunt defense practiced since camp. We don’t have a 100% bunt defense. After checking the batter’s movements, the defenders move.”안전놀이터
