Stolen base shakes up Kim Kwang-hyun and completes big inning…Manager Yoon Kyung-yup “This is the direction LG should go in the future”

LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yeop praised his players for their performance against the opposition’s ace.

LG secured the sweep with an 11-2 victory in the 11th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against SSG Landers at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on April 19. After taking the lead in the bottom of the second inning on Kang Jin-sung’s RBI single, LG bounced back with five runs in the top of the third inning, then added five more in the top of the eighth to seal the win.

In particular, LG took advantage of their team advantage by recording three stolen bases in the top of the third inning, when they were down 0-1. With the bases loaded and no outs, Shin Min-jae attempted to bunt on the first pitch, allowing second baseman Park Hae-min and first baseman Hong Chang-gi to steal and come home on Shin’s double. With the score 3-1, Park Dong-won’s at-bat with runners on first and third shook up Kim Kwang-hyun by stealing second base.

“Since camp, we’ve been training our players to take a swing if they get a strike, and take the bat out if they get a ball, so I think they’re doing a good job because they have a little bit of leeway,” said LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who replayed the situation from the previous day’s third inning ahead of the SSG game on Tuesday.

“It’s also a burden for the coach to have Park Hae-min steal with no outs and 1-2, but I think it’s a positive thing that Park Hae-min and Hong Chang-ki died, but both times it was a bunt operation,” Yeom said, adding, “The players have changed a lot. They didn’t do anything last year, but now they can make something happen. Baseball is most comfortable for a manager when the players solve it,” he emphasized.

Although the season isn’t over yet, Yeom is pleased with the team’s transformation.

“When the players have a weakness, they try to solve it. The same goes for batting and defense. We’re sliding on missed pitches, being aggressive on 3-balls, and getting better on-base percentage.” “The first thing we want to change is to be able to play aggressive baseball without hesitation, not passive. I think that’s how we can play exciting baseball and have fun, so that’s what I emphasized the most to the players, and there are a lot of come-from-behind wins because the players are playing boldly within a short period of time,” he analyzed.

“There are a lot of mistakes, but I think it’s inevitable because of the change in the team,” said Yoon Kyung-yeop. “The players have become aggressive in the offense, defense, and defense, and the team is playing aggressive and active baseball. I think this is the direction LG should go in the future, and I think we will become more detailed and competitive, so we can play dignified baseball in the postseason without being timid.” He encouraged the players.먹튀검증

Meanwhile, LG’s lineup against Loenis Elias is Hong Chang-ki (right fielder), Shin Min-jae (second baseman), Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter), Austin Dean (first baseman), Moon Bo-kyung (third baseman), Moon Sung-joo (left fielder), Kim Min-sung (shortstop), Heo Do-hwan (catcher), and Park Hae-min (center fielder). The starting pitcher was Adam Plutko.

Heo Do-hwan wears the catcher’s mask instead of Park Dong-won. Shortstop Oh Ji-hwan, whose physical condition has improved a lot, is likely to be a late-game substitute. “Yesterday, during the game, Park Dong-won’s left wrist was not feeling good, so I took him out,” said manager Yoon Kyung-yeop. “Oh Ji-hwan can start, but it’s much better to rest him until tomorrow. I’m going to pitch about two innings like the day before. I’ll try not to push him as much as possible.”
