Substitute starter and win, coach Kim Won-hyung “Lee Kun-wook lasted well for 4 innings”
While taking a break, foreign pitcher Kirk McCarty prevented the crises of SSG Landers, who put forward an alternative starter, and avenged the loss the previous day to the KIA Tigers.
SSG, led by coach Kim Won-hyung, won 5-3 in an away game against KIA in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at the Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 10th. With the victory on this day, SSG made a season record of 21 wins and 11 losses and kept the top spot alone.
Lee Kun-wook, who took the opportunity to start while McCarty was resting due to finger inflammation, served as the opener with 5 hits, 2 walks, 1 strikeout and 3 runs in 4 innings. Baek Seung-gun, Koh Hyo-jun, Noh Kyung-eun, Lim Jun-seop, and Seo Jin-yong were responsible for each scoreless inning.
Baek Seung-gun became the winning pitcher, and Koh Hyo-jun, Noh Kyung-eun, and Lim Jun-seop posted holds side by side. Seo Jin-yong, the number one saver, had 14 saves. In the other lineup, Kim Kang-min, who came out as a pinch hitter, recorded 2 hits, 1 RBI, and 1 run including a home run, and Choo Shin-soo and Choi Jun-woo also posted 1 RBI.
토스카지노 After the game, coach Kim Won-hyeong said, “I wanted Kun-wook to throw well until the 4th inning today, but he left the run and endured the 4 innings well and was able to continue the 1-run game into the second half. The bullpen pitchers who came out next pitched with confidence in a difficult game. He is showing good performance while doing it. It was the support for victory,” he applauded the pitchers.
In particular, on this day, Lim Jun-seop recorded a hold in 1002 days after the Gocheok Kiwoom match on August 11, 2020, when he was with the Hanwha Eagles. Director Kim said, “Recently, Jun-seop has been throwing a very good ball. Thanks to him, he is becoming a great help to the bullpen.”
Coach Kim also said, “On the field side, Kang Min-i played a big role in the offense and defense. The defense was good, but I was able to win today with the decisive wedge,” he said without forgetting the veteran’s performance.
