“The foundation of today’s victory was the perfect pitching of our starter Lee Jung-yong.”
LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yeop heaped praise on Lee Jung-yong.
Yim’s team cruised to a 10-0 victory over the Hanwha Eagles of the 2023 KBO Baseball League on Aug. 1 at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul. After snapping a three-game losing streak against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil the day before (Aug. 31), LG quickly turned things around with a second straight win.
In addition, leader LG (67 wins, 2 draws, 41 losses) widened the gap to 5.5 games as second-place KT Wiz (63 wins, 2 draws, 48 losses) succumbed to the Kiwoom Heroes 2-6 on the same day.
Starting pitcher Lee Jung-yong was the star of the show. Facing 86 pitches, he went six innings, giving up one run on five hits and one walk while striking out five to improve to 6-1 on the season. Jung Woo-young (1 inning of scoreless relief), Lee Ji-gang (1 inning of scoreless relief), and Yoon Hosol (1 inning of scoreless relief) also did their part.
“The foundation of our victory was the perfect pitching of Lee Jung-yong,” said LG manager Yoon Kyung-yeop after the game, “and the rest of the team took care of their own innings, allowing us to play a somewhat relaxed game for the first time in a long time.”
The offense was led by Kim Hyun-soo (3-for-2, 4 RBI), Austin Dean (3-for-3, 2 RBI) and Bo-kyung Moon (3-for-2, 2 RBI), who pounded out 10 runs on 11 hits. The game-winning hit came from Park Dong-won (1-for-4, RBI), who put runners on first and second with a groundout in the bottom of the fourth inning.
“Offensively, Park Dong-won’s leadoff single gave us the lead in the game,” said Yeom. In the fifth inning, when we needed to score more runs, Kim Hyun-soo’s RBI double was crucial to the victory,” he said. “After that, the players showed their focus and delivered a big inning, which made the game more relaxed.”토토사이트
