“I don’t want to talk much.”
This is what manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who met ahead of the Hanwha Eagles match on the 3rd, said about the closing Ko Woo-suk. It’s a comment I made out of frustration, and it’s full of disappointment.
Hanwha held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 2nd. Park Hae-min hit a tying three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning while being dragged 0-3. 3-3, brought the game back to square one. The flow seemed to be turning toward the LG Twins. 바카라
The LG bench put in closer Ko Woo-suk in the top of the ninth inning. The intention was to block the top of the ninth inning without losing a point and turn the game around in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Yeom’s idea was quickly broken. Ko Woo-suk struggled unexpectedly in the lower order.
He had a left-handed hit by leadoff hitter Lee Won-seok. Lee Won-seok recently moved up from the Futures Team (second division) and played as a substitute in the game. Ko Woo-suk, who sent out No. 8 Choi Jae-hoon with a walk, walked No. 1 Jung Eun-won to base.
I thought I would easily overpower Hanwha’s lower-order lineup, but I was on the verge of loading the bases with two outs. Hanwha No. 2 Lee Jin-young then hit a cut fastball thrown by Ko Woo-suk and led to a timely hit to the left. Ko Woo-suk was replaced after sending out the next batter, Roh Si-hwan, with a walk.
⅔Two hits, four outs, three runs, and two runs in two innings. He lost for the fifth time in the season. It was the worst result that the LG bench could not have imagined.
Coach Yeom said, “I don’t understand why he mainly threw breaking balls, not powerful fastballs, while facing lower hitters.”
Ko Woo-suk’s powerful fastball is the best in the KBO league. Overall, it would have been difficult to throw confidently due to poor control on the day. Anyway, it was a very wasteful game for LG.
