Escaping losing streak Hong Won-ki Kiwoom coach “Jung Chan-heon starting pitch and Lim Ji-yeol home run decisive”

As a result, the pinch hitter card worked well. Kiwoom Heroes won a thrilling come-from-behind victory against the Lotte Giants at Gocheok Sky Dome on the last day of their weekend home game.

Kiwoom was dragged 2-5 by Lotte until the 7th inning, the latter half of the game. If the game ended like this, it was a crisis of losing 5 consecutive games and giving up all 3 games to Lotte.

However, he made a big inning at the bottom of the 8th inning and turned the game around. Kiwoom only raised one point in each of the previous chances to get the bases loaded. However, in the bottom of the 8th inning when the bases were loaded with two outs, Lim Ji-yeol, who came out at bat, acted as a solver.

In the bottom of the 7th inning, he replaced with a pinch hitter and hit a home run with the bases loaded, and Kiwoom turned around 7-5. At the beginning of the 9th inning, Lotte faced a crisis as they were driven to 2nd, 1st and 2nd base, but Lim Chang-min, who was in charge of the finishing task, finished the game well without conceding a run.

Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki said after the game, “Above all, Jeong Chan-heon, who started after 4 days off, threw close to 5 innings and played a role.” Jeong Chan-heon gave up 5 runs in 4.2 innings, but from the standpoint of coach Hong and Kiwoom’s bench, he was able to slow down the operation of the bullpen as much as possible that day.

Manager Hong said, “The pitchers (Yang Hyun, Ha Young-min, Lee Myeong-jong) who came after Jung Chan-heon did not give up the flow to the opponent by blocking the innings without conceding extra runs, which was effective.” “he explained.

Lim Ji-yeol’s name was also mentioned, of course. Coach Hong was satisfied, saying, “The batting line concentration was good at the end of the 8th inning. In particular, I was able to secure a valuable victory with Lim Ji-yeol’s decisive home run.”

From Lotte’s point of view, it was regrettable that they could not score an additional point in the situation of one company and third base at the beginning of the 8th inning when they were leading 5-2. Coach Hong emphasized, “I sincerely thank the Heroes fans who cheered and encouraged the players as much as the opposing team during the weekend’s three-game series.”메이저놀이터
