“Their pitching was good.”
LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop reviewed the previous day’s game against the Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, South Korea, ahead of the teams’ 14th meeting. In particular, he expressed his disappointment with Park Hae-min’s home rush.
It was a situation that could have been a disappointment for the commander. Trailing 3-4 in the seventh inning, with runners on first and second, Shin Min-jae singled to right off Lee Jae-ik. The runner on second, Park Hae-min, quickly rounded third base and raced home. Given his quick feet, it was expected that he would be able to get home. However, a laser throw from right fielder Lee Sung-gyu threw Park out at home.
Although Yeom acknowledged that the opponent’s pitch was good, he believed that “it shouldn’t have come in.” “Samsung was playing a forward defense, and considering Lee Sung-gyu’s strong shoulder, he should have stopped at third base,” he said.
LG blew a chance to tie the game when Park Hae-min was thrown out at home. They were rattled by a two-run double by Samsung’s Oh Jae-il in the eighth inning and scored two more runs off Oh Seung-hwan in the ninth, but were unable to overturn the deficit. After battling Samsung to the end, they fell to 5-6 and saw their five-game winning streak come to a halt.메이저놀이터
