SSG Landers coach Kim Won-hyung expected the starting pitcher to make an effort.
SSG, led by coach Won-hyung Kim, will play the 16th game between the teams, the last match of the regular season, against KT of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 12th. On Monday, when there was no game, SSG canceled the first-team entries of pitcher Lee Ki-sun and infielders Jeon Eui-san and Kim Chan-hyung, and called up pitcher Choi Min-jun and infielders Ahn Sang-hyun and Choi Hang on this day.
Regarding the cancellation of Jeon Eui-san, manager Kim Won-hyung said, “The strikeout rate is too high to be used as a pinch hitter right now. The defense ratio is a bit low, and if he goes out, he has to be the starter, but now (Kim) Seong-hyun is watching second base and (Choi) Joo-hwan is in that position. “It wasn’t easy to get a chance to play,” he explained, adding, “We needed a left-handed pinch hitter, and Hangi was hitting well in the second team, so I called him in.”카지노사이트
Ahn Sang-hyun was added to the first team list 26 days after being placed on the injured list due to a finger injury on the 16th of last month. Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “Sang-hyeon was there before he injured his finger, and he was a player who should have stayed. Today, he faces a left-handed pitcher and starts right away.”
Meanwhile, on this day, SSG faced KT starter Wes Benjamin: Ji-hoon Choi (center fielder) – Kang-min Kim (designated hitter) – Jeong Choi (third baseman) – Heredia (left fielder) – Jae-hoon Ha (right fielder) – Seong-hyun Kim (shortstop) – Tae-gon Oh (first baseman) – Sang-hyun Ahn The starting lineup was formed in the order of (second baseman) to Hyeong-Woo Cho (catcher).
Manager Kim Won-hyeong said, “Because he is a left-handed pitcher, we made the lineup almost right-handed. Jihoon is the only left-handed hitter today.” He added, “It should be said that the hitters have improved little by little, but last week’s starters were very bad. This week’s starters are good. “We have to show it,” he expected.
In six games last week, the SSG starter collapsed, recording an ERA of 9.51. Lowest among 10 teams. The ranking, which was 3rd, fell two places to 5th, and even that 5th place is not a comfortable situation. Manager Kim Won-hyung emphasized, “Innings must be pitched responsibly to some extent.” On this day, Gwang-Hyun Kim takes the mound and faces the KT batting lineup.
