LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yup praised his players’ focus after they wrapped up a three-game weekend series with a win.
LG won 3-1 against KIA at Jamsil Stadium on April 2. On the mound, Lee Jung-yong pitched three innings before the bullpen held the Kia bats to minimal runs to secure the victory. In the batting order, Kim Hyun-soo hit a leadoff single and Park Dong-won contributed with a multi-hit performance, including a wedge solo shot. After a ninth-inning 메이저사이트 victory over KIA on the 30th and an upset loss on the 1st, LG ended the week on a high note with a win in the final game of the three-game weekend series. Their record now stands at 47 wins, 1 loss and 27 draws.
It was a game where solid mound depth shone through. Lee Jung-yong pitched the first three innings before Jung Woo-young and Lee Woo-chan took over for the next two innings. In the top of the seventh, Choi Dong-hwan was shaky, but Ham Deok-ju kept the momentum going with a KK to end the tie. Ham Deok-ju again cleaned up in the eighth, and closer Go Woo-seok closed out the ninth to secure the win.
“Kim Hyun-soo’s leadoff hit focused the pitchers, 안전사이트 and Park Dong-won’s home run gave us some breathing room when we needed extra runs,” said Yeom after the game. “On the pitching side, Ham Deok-ju did a great job in the seventh inning to get out of a jam and turn it into a good flow, and Go Woo-seok finished it off nicely.” “It was a very hot week, and I want to commend the players for their efforts,” he added. “Thanks to the support of our fans, we were able to improve our record to 4-1 this week. Thank you for your support and keep up the good work.”
