“I just thought it was an infield hit, and that’s luck.”
On track to win the regular season title, but every win counts LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop is still thinking about the game two days ago.
LG went 1-2 against the SSG Landers in Incheon on April 20. They had hoped to sweep the three-game weekend series, but fell short by one run on the final day.
Especially in the top of the ninth inning, when Austin Dean’s mis-hit ball rolled toward third base with two outs, manager Yeom Kyung-yeop thought, “Oh, that’s it.
But SSG third baseman Choi Jung-jeong rushed in, caught the ball, threw to first base and collapsed. The outcome was safe. Shin Min-jae, the third baseman, came home to tie the game. Coach Yeom Kyung-yup cheered.
However, the SSG bench requested a video review, and the play was overturned as an out at first base, leaving the game unscored.먹튀검증
“It was a great defense by Choi Jung. He was in the back of the infield. If it was any other third baseman, it would have been an infield hit. Because it was Choi Jeong, I was able to get the out.”
Yoon Kyung-yeop worked with Choi Jeong, a former national team third baseman, as a manager, player, and coach during his time with the SK Wyverns.
He thought it was an infield hit. At the very least, I thought it was the same time, but there was a difference, and that’s the luck of the game,” he explained.
