The LG Twins won 4 consecutive victories over the weekend against Samsung for two days in a row.
On the 9th, LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop played brilliant tactical baseball such as run & hit, check induction, and home steal at the Samsung game in Jamsil. However, while executing tactical baseball, he showed reprimand with strong ‘complaints’ twice.
The match between Samsung and LG was held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 9th. LG was dragged 1-2 by Samsung in the early stages. Both teams lacked concentration in their chances.
LG only managed to make up for 1 point with a sacrifice fly in the 2nd inning chance with 1 out and bases loaded. After that, in the 3rd inning 1 company 1st base and 4th inning 1 company 1st base, the pulse was cut off due to double strokes. In the 5th inning, table setter Hong Chang-ki and Moon Seong-joo failed to save a chance with consecutive infield ground balls.
In the 6th inning, trailing by 1-2, Kim Hyeon-soo hit right handedly and Moon Bo-kyung made the first and second bases safe with an infield hit from third baseman, and manager Yeom began to actively intervene in the game from the bench. Kim Min-seong ordered a run-and-hit strategy in the first pitch at bat.
However, Kim Min-seong made a miss on the slider that fell far outside Suarez, the Samsung starter. The runners ran at the same time as the pitch, but luck followed. As the ball bounced, it hit catcher Kim Tae-goon’s mitt and bounced sideways. The runners safely advanced to second and third base. As a result, he succeeded with a double steal.
Commentator Park Jae-hong said, “LG is really bold in their strategy,” and commentator Jung Min-cheol said, “An attempt to run from 1st and 2nd base safely is an adventure in a way. It is a situation where you can lose the outcount all at once.” In the second and third bases, Kim Min-sung’s shortstop grounder made the score 2-2. In the continued 1st and 2nd base, the follow-up was not successful until the turnaround was unsuccessful.
In the 8th inning, coach Yeom came up with a strategy to catch people off guard. In place of Seo Geon-chang, Austin, who hit the final hit the previous day, was appointed as a pinch hitter at 2nd, 2nd and 3rd base. Samsung replaced the pitcher with Woo Kyu-min. threw the first ball. With the second pitch ahead, second base runner Kim Hyun-soo took a long lead. Woo Kyu-min then signed a cover for second base with his head toward the shortstop and threw a check ball to second base.
Third base runner Seong-Joo Moon ran home, but shortstop Jae-Hyun Lee caught an accurate home throw and was tagged out. Commentator Jeong Min-cheol said, “Austen is appointed as a pinch hitter, so everyone is paying attention to the hitter, but he is amazing with an unexpected strategy.”
Coach Yeom, who immediately applied for a video review in the home tag-out situation, spread his arms toward the third base base coach (or Moon Seong-joo, who was out at home) as if the lead was too small, and pointed his finger at him with a dissatisfied expression.
According to Yeom’s strategy, Woo Kyu-min threw a check ball to second base at the second base runner’s bait, but the third base runner’s home dash timing was delayed. After the game, Moon Seong-ju said, “I was running late. It’s my fault.” When Woo Kyu-min tried to throw a check ball to second base, Moon Seong-ju took a step or two back to third base. He would have been safe had he run straight home.
In the 10th inning, with the score tied 2-2, Hong Chang-ki hit a sacrifice bunt at first base, and Park Hae-min, the runner on first base, advanced to second base. However, coach Yeom, who was in the dugout, suddenly showed a nervous reaction by pointing his finger toward the ground. Then, with a very angry expression, it seemed like he was spitting out profanity with his mouth. He had the expression that there was something he didn’t like.
1 company and 2nd base, commentator Jeong Min-cheol said, “From a situational point of view, it seems to have gone as planned,안전놀이터 but I can’t decide what the problem is.” Afterwards, with Moon Seong-joo’s hit, the third base runner was tagged out at home with Kim Hyun-soo’s first baseman grounder in a chance for one out and 1st and 3rd base.
When Moon Bo-kyung hit a hit next to the first baseman in the 2nd, 1st and 2nd bases, first baseman Oh Jae-il ran to the first base and dropped the ball while trying to throw it. In the meantime, Moon Seong-joo, who was the runner on second base, ran to the home via third base and scored and won the game.
