Oh Ji-hwan, be careful until this week… I don’t use it if possible” LG National University shortstop, but I can’t come out
- on Aug 18, 2023
LG’s main shortstop Oh Ji-hwan was left out of the starting lineup for four consecutive games. In the last 3 games in Daegu, Kim Min-seong started as a shortstop, and in the first game of 3 games in Incheon on the 18th, Jung Joo-hyun will play as shortstop. It is difficult to guarantee that Oh Ji-hwan will be selected as a starter throughout the weekend’s three-game series.안전놀이터
LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said that Oh Ji-hwan’s hiatus could be a little longer ahead of the match against SSG Landers, which will be held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 18th. In this game, Jung Joo-hyun will be the starting shortstop. Jung Joo-hyun was named to the starting lineup as a shortstop for the first time in four months since the match against Hanwha on April 23.
Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop explained, “We have to be careful with Oh Ji-hwan until this week. I try not to use it if possible. There is a gap in defense. Apparently, (Kim) Min-seong has a narrow range on the left and right. Jung Joo-hyun has a wide range on the left and right.” .
#18 Incheon SSG match starting lineup
Hong Chang-ki (right fielder) – Shin Min-jae (2nd baseman) – Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter) – Austin Dean (1st baseman) – Moon Bo-gyeong (3rd baseman) – Lee Jae-won (left fielder) – Jung Joo-hyeon (shortstop) – Heo Do-hwan ( Catcher) – Park Hae-min (center fielder) and starting pitchers Choi Won-
tae and Lee Jae-won returned to the starting lineup. It is a choice to target left-handed pitcher Kirk McCarty. Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “Moon Seong-ju is weak against balls that escape (outside). McCarty’s fastball, slider, and curveball are his main pitches. His changeup is his fourth pitch.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop regretted that LG was weak against certain left-handed starting pitchers throughout the season. LG met kt Wes Benjamin 4 times and lost all of them. Samsung Baek Jeong-hyeon also won 3 wins out of 3 matches. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “4 losses against Benjamin and 3 losses against Baek Jung-hyun. 5 wins and 5 losses against kt, but only lost to Benjamin 4 times. Against Samsung, 10 wins and 5 losses, but here 3 losses are Baek Jung-hyun,” laughing dejectedly.
– Moon Bo-kyung failed in a tag-up play from 2nd to 3rd base.
“I had to jump in shallowly, but the sliding was slow and my leg was lifted. That’s all luck in the game.”
– Shin Min-jae has been appearing in the most matches since his debut. Is there any problem with his stamina?
“It’s okay. Looking at fast-footed players, their stamina is good. The retired Lee Dae-hyeong and our Park Hae-min do too. He recovers quickly and has good stamina. I also had good stamina. But after becoming a coach, mental fatigue was greater than physical fatigue. It seems to be true that the mind controls the body.”
– Choi Won-tae will work with Heo Do-hwan again (for the first time since the first game after the transfer).
“There is a break for Dong-Won Park, and Do-Hwan Heo seems to be more suitable for Won-Tae Choi, so I did that. Dong-Won Park and Do-Hwan Heo have slightly different sitting postures. Heo Do-hwan was added.”
– In the 8th inning, with 3 points out of bounds, Park Hae-min bunt at second base.
“Park Hae-min is almost entirely his own judgement. He is almost always like that. He tries a lot of bunts when he has a bad feeling.”
– Park Myung-geun looked better than before his comeback.
“I seemed nervous on the first day. I wonder if it was the same as the opening game. Before the game, I told you to throw boldly in your style. It looked different from the first day.”
– KT is coming up terribly.
“If you look at their current performance, kt is more stable than us. The most important thing in baseball is starting baseball. Wasn’t it a candidate for the championship? I thought so. I thought it would come up even when it was in the bottom ranks. But it came up so well.”
– You have 3 consecutive matches against kt in September. Do you have any plans to change the starting rotation?
“No. I just do my best one game at a time. I just think about how many more wins I can accumulate in a month. That’s what we focus on the most in managing our team this season.”
– Do you think about rotation considering the remaining game schedule?
“It seems that we will have almost a game except for one or two days. The starting rotation remains the same. When the first and second foreign pitchers go out, the winning streak is cut off. The first and second starts do not expect a quality start. 6 innings, 2 runs allowed. should do
“It’s okay. It’s not an overwhelming pitch, but if you don’t control it, you can get hit a lot.”
