LG head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop applauded SSG’s Choi Jeong-ho.
LG lost 1-2 against SSG on April 20 at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. The loss ended LG’s three-game winning streak.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, with the score tied 1-1, LG sent Go Woo-seok to the mound with the bases loaded, but he threw a wild pitch. But LG didn’t go down without a fight. In the top of the ninth, they had a chance to strike back.
Shin Min-jae led off with a single against SSG closer Seo Jin-yong and stole second when Kim Hyun-soo came to bat. Kim struck out, but Austin was hit by a pitch to put runners on second and third.
Austin then hit a hard grounder to third baseman Choi Jung. Choi made a quick diving catch and threw to first base. The call was safe. If the call stood, the game would have been tied at 2-2. However, after a video review, the out was called and SSG won the game.
The best play of the game saved SSG. LG was left with a deep sense of disappointment.
When we met before the game on the 22nd, coach Yeom Kyung-yup said, “It was a very good defense. If it was anyone else, it would have been a safe. I got him out because he was the best. It was not an easy pitch to throw that accurately,” and applauded Hoseby.메이저놀이터
At the time of Austin’s hit, the LG dugout thought it was an infield hit. ”I thought it was an infield hit for sure. At the very least, I thought it was at the same time, but it was off by this much. That’s the luck of the game,” he explained.
