LG sprinted for 4 consecutive victories with two consecutive ending victories.
The LG Twins won a 3-2 victory over the Samsung Lions in the 10th inning of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 9th. Moon Bo-gyeong scored a finishing hit in the 2nd and 1st and 2nd bases.
A series of injuries to infielders made the game difficult. Kim Min-seong started as shortstop for three consecutive games, and Jung Joo-hyun, who had never seen first base defense in the first team, took over as first baseman. LG continued its winning streak with a lineup that can only be seen in demonstration games.
The start was good for Samsung. Samsung raised the score in the first and second innings in a row. This is the first goal of the season.
After one out in the first inning, Kim Ji-chan got on base with a heavy hit and looked for an opportunity. After two outs, Kim Ji-chan jumped through third base to home on Kang Min-ho’s left-middle hit. In the second inning, Koo Ja-wook scored an RBI with an infield hit in an opportunity seized by Kim Tae-gun and Kim Seong-yoon’s consecutive hits and Lee Jae-hyun’s clean sacrifice bunt success.
All scores were obtained while LG’s infield defense showed gaps. In the first inning, first baseman Song Chan-eui missed Kang Min-ho’s foul fly, and a timely hit came out. In the second inning, first baseman Jeong Joo-hyun, who went into heavy defense, came out too far and tried to handle the batted ball, but gave up an infield hit on a batted ball that was supposed to be a ground ball.
In the 2nd inning with 1 out and bases loaded, LG made up for 1 point with Jung Joo-hyun’s center fielder’s sacrifice fly. In the 6th inning, Kim Hyun-soo and Moon Bo-kyung’s consecutive hits and double steals made the second and third base opportunities safe, and Kim Min-seong’s ground ball tied the score 2-2.
The defense struggled in the top of the 7th inning. Starter Adam Plutko was replaced in a 1st, 1st and 3rd base crisis. The second pitcher, Ham Deok-joo, walked Kim Ji-chan, filled the bases, and passed the ball to Kim Jin-seong. Kim Jin-seong struck out Jose Pirella and blocked Kang Min-ho with a floating ball in right field, avoiding a crisis. 메이저사이트
LG missed the opportunity to run on second and third bases in the attack at the end of the 8th inning. Min-seong Kim ended up with a floating ball to second baseman, and after pinch hitter Austin Dean came out, third base runner Seong-joo Moon’s home rush operation failed. While second baseman Kim Hyeon-soo was under check, it was a strategy to aim for home, but Samsung handled it well.
In regular innings, overtime was played without a win or loss. In the top of the 10th inning, LG maintained a 2-2 balance with Lee Jung-yong as a temporary finisher. In the attack at the bottom of the 10th inning, Park Hae-min and Moon Seong-joo made a chance to end the 1st and 3rd bases with hits. Moon Bo-kyung’s grounder hit from 2nd 1st and 2nd base led to an infield hit. At this time, second base runner Moon Seong-ju rushed home and scored the final goal.
