It was a strange LG Twins’ 3-game series in Changwon.
As if possessed by something, all three games were unsolved. The game flow that was not typical of the first place team, LG, continued 스포츠토토.
LG lost all three weekend matches against the NC Dinos held at Changwon NC Park on the 25th and 27th. The win was not added, and the game difference decreased from 7.5 to 4.5 as 2nd place KT Wiz, on the contrary, won 3 consecutive wins. KT’s rising trend is so great that if LG loses pace, the first-team system could be reorganized into a second-team system.
It was weird from the first match. Choi Won-tae, the starting pitcher for LG, was beaten. He gave up 11 runs on 15 hits in 4 innings. Since the starting opponent was Eric Peddy, who had the most wins, Choi Won-tae should have led the game equally, but he lost a lot of points due to his poor condition, which did not allow him to restrain himself more than usual. From the 4th inning, LG prepared for the next day early by removing the main players and putting in replacement members.
The 26th was absurd. It was right to follow the rules, but I couldn’t help but feel unfair. LG took a 5-1 lead by scoring 4 points in the top of the 6th inning when the score was tied 1-1. 1 run at the bottom of the 6th inning and 1 run at the bottom of the 8th inning gave a 5-3 lead. In the bottom of the ninth, Go Woo-seok came out. I quickly caught 2 outs and thought it would end with a victory like that. Even if Park Min-woo hit No. 2, the difference by 2 points seemed large. However, the situation changed rapidly when Park Kun-woo’s infield grounder hit number 3.
The ball that rolled towards the second baseman slightly brushed the spike of the second baseman who was avoiding the ball. Second baseman Shin Min-jae caught it and tossed it to second base, and the game seemed to end, but the second base referee voluntarily revealed that he was hit, and according to baseball rules, it became an infield hit, making it 2 out 1 and 2 base. Then, Martin’s batted ball became a lucky hit and the lead was 5-4, 1 point, and Woo-seok Ko, the 2nd runner-up and 3rd baseman, threw a fastball at the end of a full count game, which hit Kwon Hee-dong’s bat exactly and went over the left wall. End of come-from-behind defeat 5-7 with three runs.
The game on the 27th was absurd from the first inning. LG starter Lim Chan-gyu went down the mound in the bottom of the first inning. In the crisis of 1st and 3rd base safely, the fastball thrown to Park Gun-woo 3 times flew to the face. He was hit with a shield on his face and avoided serious injury, but was dismissed as a headshot.
Afterwards, LG put in bullpen pitchers Choi Dong-hwan, Park Myeong-geun, Baek Seung-hyeon, Jung Woo-young, Yoo Young-chan, and Kim Jin-seong, but gave up 5 runs and lost 3-5 as no one shot came out of the chance.
LG suffered three consecutive losses for the first time since losing five in a row from Busan Lotte on July 9 to Suwon KT on July 26.
We need to get rid of the bad mood quickly. Starting on the 29th, LG will have a 3-game home match against Jamsil rival Doosan Bears. Their relative record is very good with 8 wins and 2 losses this season. Lee Jeong-yong, Casey Kelly, and Choi Won-tae will start.
If Doosan also plays a losing series or loses in a row, the situation could be further twisted. It is urgent to end the losing streak quickly.
