LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop promised a head-to-head match ahead of the left-handed starting pitcher match-up for the 4th consecutive day. Due to the composition of the team, there are many left-handed hitters, but we plan to push forward with a straight shot method without changing the lineup.

Regarding facing Baek Jeong-hyun, SSG McCarty, Kim Gwang-hyun, and Elias from this day ahead of the Daegu Samsung game on the 17th, Yeom said, “Left-handed batters will also try to endure. Our left-handed hitters do not hit left-handed pitchers. On the weekend, they are pitchers you can face later in the postseason. I will stick with it,” he said.

Except for catcher Park Dong-won and first baseman Austin Dean, all of LG’s field players are left-handed hitters. Usually, 7 of the 9 spots in the starting lineup are filled by left-handed hitters, but as coach Yeom said, the performance against left-handed pitchers is rather better.

Until the 16th, LG is running first in this category with a batting average of 0.288 against left-handed pitchers. The OPS of the left-handed pitcher is also 1st with 0.793. Rather, the team’s batting average against right-handed pitchers was 0.282 and the team’s OPS was 0.756, which is lower than that against left-handed pitchers.

It is not that there is no enemy. He struggles only when he meets KT left-handed pitcher Wes Benjamin. Coach Yeom said, “Aside from Benjamin, left-handed pitchers have good results. Of the five wins KT won against us, four came from Benjamin. When it comes to playing with other teams, Benjamin is right, but when it comes time to play with us, he seems to catch on.”

On this day, a right-handed hitter enters the three-man lineup. Just like the last two days, Oh Ji-hwan was given another day off for management purposes. Oh Ji-hwan felt abnormal symptoms in his right front thigh during the Jamsil Kiwoom match on the 13th and was replaced during the game. He also participated in defensive training that day, but coach Yeom is carefully setting the timing of Oh Ji-hwan’s return. Kim Min-seong will play as shortstop.메이저놀이터

Athletes always say it is possible,” he said. However, if the injured part comes up again now, you will have to leave for a month. He will see the condition and decide until tomorrow.”

On this day, LG was Hong Chang-ki (right fielder) – Shin Min-jae (2nd baseman) – Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter) – Austin (1st baseman) – Moon Bo-gyeong (3rd baseman) – Kim Min-seong (shortstop) – Park Dong-won (catcher) – Moon Seong-joo (left fielder) – Park Hae-min (center fielder). ) was lined up. The starting pitcher is Casey Kelly.

For Kelly, his mission is to fight left-handers. Manager Yeom said, “Samsung and we are facing today, and there are many left-handed hitters in the lineup these days. Even numerically, Kelly struggles against left-handed hitters more, but today we will see how he deals with left-handed hitters, including his changeup.”
