The LG Twins secured a three-game winning series over the weekend with Austin’s ending hit.
LG won 2-1 in the second game of the season against Samsung held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 8th, and has won 3 consecutive wins since the Gocheok Kiwoom match on the 6th. Season 5 wins and 2 losses.
At the end of the 9th inning, when LG was 1-1, pinch hitter Austin hit Samsung closer Oh Seung-hwan with two outs on first base and won a dramatic victory with a double to finish in right field. In 1B1S, while pushing a 144km fastball and dropping it in front of the right wall, first base runner Kim Min-seong sprinted home and raised the finish line먹튀검증.
LG pushed Samsung ace Buchanan from the first attack at the end of the first inning.
Successive hits by Hong Chang-ki and Mun Seong-joo in 1st and 2nd, followed by a walk by Kim Hyun-soo in 3rd, safely loaded the bases. Moon Bo-gyeong retreated with a ground ball in front of the pitcher, but Kim Min-seong took the lead with a large sacrifice fly caught in front of the right wall.
After that, there was a long lull.
Both teams drew 14 zeroes on the scoreboard from the beginning of the second inning to the end of the eighth inning.
In the top of the ninth inning, where the Samsung trailed 0-1, Lee Won-seok and Kang Min-ho’s consecutive hits and Oh Jae-il’s walk resulted in a one-out run, and Kim Seong-yoon’s left fielder’s sacrifice fly turned the game into overtime.
LG starter Kim Yun-shik threw 2 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and no runs in 5 innings in the second start of the season, shaking off the sluggish first game (4 hits, 2 walks, 2 runs in 1 inning against KT on the 2nd). Five innings were deleted with 65 effective pitches, which fell short of the originally scheduled 70 pitches.
From the 6th inning, LG’s bullpen team, including Kim Jin-seong, Ham Deok-joo, and Jung Woo-young, stepped up to lead by one point.
Jung Woo-young, who took the mound with 2 outs 1st and 2nd base in the beginning of the 7th inning while maintaining a 1-0 close lead, blocked 1⅓ innings perfectly until the 8th inning and recorded the 2nd hold of the season. Jung Woo-young, who recorded a total of 98 holds until last year, achieved 100 holds after only 261 games and 23 years, 7 months, 20 days, and Hanwha Jung Woo-ram (25 years, 11 months, 17 days) played Incheon Lotte on May 18, 2011. He broke the record for the youngest 100 hold set in 12 years.
Samsung got runners on base with 4 hits and 4 walks, but luck didn’t follow, such as a well-hit ball going to the front of the fielder.
Buchanan, who was shaken in the first inning, rebounded with 3 hits and 1 run in 8 innings with 18 consecutive hits from the 8th hitter in the 2nd inning, but he had to take comfort in avoiding the unfair defeat pitcher as he was not helped by the team lineup.
