Bullpen hunting for mistakes… The KIA-LG slugfest that left an unpleasant aftertaste


The confrontation between professional baseball KIA Tigers and LG Twins, which flowed into a hit-and-run game, left an aftertaste that was not as refreshing. The KIA selection, who was the rookie of the year, was again beaten without completing the 5th inning for overdoing the pitch, and the LG defense collapsed with 3 errors in 2 consecutive games. The bullpen put on a ‘bull show’ for both teams.

KIA won 12-8 in the last game of the 3-game series against LG held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 30th. Following the 28th and 29th, KIA, which caught up to the confrontation on this day, tasted a sweep against LG in 1838 days since April 2018. When it was limited to the Jamsil game, June 2017 was the last.

It was a series of blood battles throughout the game. When KIA took advantage of an error by LG starter Casey Kelly in the first inning and took the lead, LG immediately scored two points at the bottom of the second inning. The ping-pong game that continued until the second half was broken only by KIA’s last attack in the regular inning in the top of the 9th inning. Hwang Dae-in hit a timely hit with one RBI in a chance created by Kim 스포츠토토Seon-bin and Choi Hyeong-woo’s consecutive hitters, followed by Socrates Brito’s large 3-pointer with a distance of 125.1m that went over the right fence.

However, apart from the fun, it was difficult to see it as a satisfactory game from the perspective of both teams. LG, which made a total of 4 mistakes in the previous 2 games, added 3 on this day and destroyed itself. In particular, the mistakes made by Kelly and Moon Sung-joo in the 1st and 8th innings were both directly linked to the run. Veteran Park Hae-min’s bunt failure was also regrettable, and it was also painful that the Pil Seung-jo, which led to Lee Jung-yong, Jung Woo-young, and Go Woo-seok, collapsed.

KIA also struggled with the mound’s sluggishness, which was contrary to the outstanding concentration of the batting line. It was a problem from the first button. Lee Eui-ri, who has never filled 6 innings this season, failed to manage the number of pitches from the beginning of the day too. He gave up 6 hits and 4 walks in 4⅔ innings and came off the mound on 102 pitches. His walks for the season were 26.

He also shook the bullpen. The batting line gave the team a 3-run lead in the 8th inning, but changed pitcher Jeon Sang-hyun tied up a hit and a series of walks, allowing 1 run and going down with 2 outs on 2nd and 3rd base. Finisher Jung Hae-young, who took the mound, allowed all runners to succeed with a timely hit to tie the score. On the mound in the ninth inning, he gave up a walk to the lead batter and was hit by Park Hae-min, and was eventually beaten down.

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk praised, saying, “It was a game where the concentration of the hitters stood out,” and “Lim Ki-young, who took the mound in the ninth inning, also defended the victory without conceding a run.” Socrates, the protagonist of the final shot, said, “I tried to send the batted ball to the outfield as much as possible with the thought of calling in runners, which led to good results.”
