Kim Bum-soo Joo Hyun-sang Park Sang-won 4.2 scoreless innings…Choi Won-ho “We won thanks to the bullpen” 2nd straight win over last-place Hanwha and first-place LG
That’s how many hits the Hanwha Eagles and LG Twins had in three games, but the outcome had nothing to do with it. Hanwha came from behind to win 5-3. They won two straight after losing eight in a row. The last-place team took the best-of-seven series against the first-place team, 2-1. For LG, it’s a heartbreaking losing streak.
In the second inning after giving up the lead. The Hanwha bats were focused and pounded out four hits. Three of the four hits were long balls. They kept their chances alive with a bunt and a walk. They even helped themselves to an error. We scored five runs in one inning to take a 5-1 lead.
The bottom of the order was encouraging. No. 6 Choi In-ho tied the game at 1-1 with a triple to right center. No. 9 Lee Do-yoon hit an RBI double. Noh Si-hwan followed with a two-run double to center.
LG batters kept coming through. Hanwha starter Moon Dong-ju, who had been struggling, gave up 11 hits until the bottom of the fifth inning. It was his most hits in a single game this season. However, the LG bats were unable to capitalize on their scoring opportunities.
Moon gave the mound to the bullpen with runners on first and second in the bottom of the fifth. Moon was followed by Kim Bum-soo (1⅔ innings), Joo Hyun-sang (2 innings), and Park Sang-won (1 inning).
Coach Choi Won-ho said, “It’s not an exaggeration to say that the bullpen made the game. Kim Bum-soo and Joo Hyun-sang Park Sang-won, who came in to pitch in a crisis, had a clean game,” Choi said, praising the relievers.스포츠토토
“The concentration of the bats in the second inning was outstanding. The flow from the bottom of the order to the top of the order was good. Moon Dong-ju made his last start of the season today, and I want to tell him that he had a tough season.”
