The LG Twins achieved the most wins as a team last year. 87 wins, 2 draws and 55 losses in 144 matches (0.613 win rate). Although he did well, he was overshadowed by SSG Landers, who won the wire-to-wire championship last year, and ended the pennant race as the second player in his later years. LG’s pace this year is even more surprising. surpassing last year. In the home game against the Hanwha Eagles held at Jamsil Stadium on the 21st, they won 4-1 and won 4 consecutive wins (including 1 tie). With 26 wins, 1 draw and 14 losses (0.650), it surpassed the same win-loss record last year. Last year, LG was 25-16 (0.610) at the time of 41 games, 3 games behind SSG, and was in second place. This year, the margin of victory in 41 matches is ‘+12’. It produced better results than last year (+9).
It’s not without its downsides, but LG offsets its downsides with bigger advantages. LG’s ace foreign pitcher Kelly, who won the most wins last year, was somewhat sluggish at the beginning of this season. In the last 3 games, they have all won, but in 9 games, they have 4 wins and 2 losses, and an average ERA of 4.34. Here, the domestic starting lineup, which was a concern, is still jagged. The bullpen isn’t without holes either. Closer Ko Woo-seok is injured, and recently Lee Jung-yong is also injured. National shortstop Oh Ji-hwan also recently returned from injury. Lee Jae-won’s joining has also been delayed. There were too many injured players.
The month of April was difficult because of baseball. Despite overwhelming attempts at stealing, the success rate of stealing was only 60%. Fans strongly criticized director Yeom Kyung-yeop. April was embarrassing even if we won. In May, LG Bench’s operation became smoother. Run when you run, endure when you endure, hit when you hit.
LG’s pitching index is perfect. The team’s ERA was 3.51, ranking second overall (SSG ranked first with 3.29). The team’s batting average is 209, ranking first overall. It is a big difference from the second place NC (0.274).
As for foreign batters, LG’s troublesome atmosphere has completely changed with the arrival of Austin Dean. He’s batting 3.3 3 with 52 hits, 4 home runs and 32 RBI (second in the league). He is strong on chances, has a good personality, and has great team loyalty. His ability to cope with changing balls is excellent and his pioneering vision is top-notch.
The performance of newly joined FA catcher Park Dong-won cannot be left out. He is batting 2.6 with 10 home runs and 29 RBI. Leading the league in home runs When Yoo Kang-nam transferred to Lotte, he bought Park Dong-won and filled the sudden catcher hole. It would have been great if he could have performed at the level of Yoo Kang-nam, but now he is posting MVP-level results in the league. Hard carry at the beginning of the season. Even when Kim Hyun-soo hit no hits in 32 at-bats, the LG batting line did not feel a big hole. Thanks to Austin and Park Dong-won. In addition, veterans such as Kim Min-seong also contributed to the growth of young beasts such as Moon Bo-kyung and Moon Seong-ju.
An official from the LG club said, “There are not many regrettable scenes, but after the game, there were many more winning games.” There were times when they gave away victory in the late game due to a decisive mistake and sluggishness of Lee Jung-yong, who was a substitute finisher, but LG is establishing itself as a strong team that wins more often than any other team. It is evaluated that Touta is the most stable team.
On this day, LG opened the door with Kim Hyun-soo’s 1st run and 1st base at the end of the 1st inning. Afterwards, at the bottom of the 6th inning, Park Hae-min came out as a pinch hitter and scored 2 RBIs on time with 2 four bases, leading 3-0. At the bottom of the 7th inning, with 2nd out and 2nd base, Moon Bo-gyeong scored a wedge. Hanwha caught up with Lee Jin-young’s solo shot at the top of the 8th inning, but it was too late.토스카지노
