“I thought it was an infield hit. That’s luck.”

We are advancing toward winning the regular season, but one win is precious. Yeom Gyeong-yeop, manager of the LG Twins, is deeply regretful as he recalls the game two days ago. 

LG lost 1-2 in an away game against SSG Landers held in Incheon on the 20th. He aimed to sweep the game three times in a row over the weekend, but on the last day he dropped his head by one point. 

In particular, in the beginning of the 9th inning, when Austin Dean’s missed ball rolled toward the third base with second out and third base, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop thought, “Ah, that’s done.” 

However, SSG third baseman Choi Jeong rushed in, caught the ball, threw it to first base, and collapsed. The result is safe. Third base runner Shin Min-jae hit home and tied the score. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop also cheered. 스포츠토토

However, a video review was requested from the SSG bench, and it was corrected from first base to out, and the game ended without scoring. 

Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “Choi Jeong played a very good defense. The defensive position was also behind. If it was another third baseman, it would have been an infield hit. Because it was Choi Jeong, I was able to handle the out.”

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop once ate rice with Choi Jeong, a former third baseman from the national team, as a general manager-player and manager-player during his time with the SK Wyverns. 

Director Yeom thought it was an infield hit. At least he thought it was simultaneous time. But that much difference. That’s the luck of the game,” he explained.
