Shin Min-jae makes up for his stealing failure… After LG extended, Kiwoom wins ‘4 consecutive wins’

LG defeated Kiwoom thanks to Shin Min-jae’s ending hit and ran 4 consecutive wins.

The LG Twins won 5-4 against Kiwoom Heroes in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 9th. Shin Min-jae got a walk-off hit in the bottom of the 10th inning. LG completed a 4-game winning streak with a come-from-behind game, recording a 19-11 win rate of 0.633. Kiwoom fell into a five-game losing streak. With 13 wins and 18 losses, the winning rate fell to 0.419.

In the bullpen fight, it was the difference between winning and losing. LG gave Kiwoom a lead in the 7th, but tied the score in the 8th. In the absence of finishing pitcher Ko Woo-seok, Park Myung-geun in the 9th and Ham Deok-ju in the 10th blocked Kiwoom’s lineup.

Both teams were tied 2-2 until the fifth inning. When Kiwoom scored two points first in the second inning, LG immediately tied the game.

Kiwoom gathered runners with Lee Won-seok and Park Chan-hyuk’s hits in the second inning. Lee Yong-kyu’s right fielder triple hit from 1st and 1st and 2nd base, and both runners hit home. However, he was unable to score an additional point in the subsequent 1st and 3rd base opportunities.

LG finished the defense with 2 runs and balanced without delay. With Moon Bo-kyung and Kim Min-sung’s consecutive hits, chances were created for the first and third bases safely. Park Dong-won’s sacrifice fly and Moon Seong-joo’s timely hit that came out after two shots made it 2-2.

From the 3rd to the 6th inning, neither team could crack. It was only in the 7th inning that the gap widened. In the beginning of the 7th inning, LG allowed Lee Jeong-hoo to score 2 RBIs and 2 bases with 2 outs on 1st and 2nd base, leading to a 2-4 lead. At the end of the 7th inning, the attack started with the 3rd hitter, Kim Hyun-soo, but ended in a three-way offense.

However, LG had a home run king. Park Dong-won tied the game 4-4 with his 8th home run of the season from 1 out 1 base. In accordance with the principle of ‘putting the strongest bullpen pitcher in the most important situation’, Kiwoom put in the 8th inning finisher Kim Jae-woong early. LG landed a counter punch to this plan. 메이저놀이터

LG missed the opportunity to end the ninth inning. Shin Min-jae’s third base stealer failed, and Moon Bo-gyeong was unable to resolve the ball count at 3-1, leading the game to overtime.

In the bottom of the 10th inning, Park Dong-won walks after one out, and Hong Chang-ki doubles after two outs, giving LG another chance to finish. Here, Shin Min-jae scored a finishing hit to make up for the stolen base failure in the 9th inning. Second baseman Kim Hye-seong caught the ball and threw it to first base, but Shin Min-jae was a little faster.
