SSG quelled the cheers of the full crowd gathered at Sajik Stadium and took down Lotte’s 1st place title in one day.
SSG won 5-0 in the match against Lotte in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 20th, tying up starter Kim Gwang-hyun’s reverse fight and the structure of the other line that made good use of the opportunity. SSG (25 wins, 14 losses, 1 draw) took revenge for the previous day’s defeat, and Lotte (22 wins, 13 losses) gave up first place in one day as their winning streak ended. The two teams will clash on the 21st over the winning series with foreign left-handers named Kirk McCarty (SSG) and Charlie Barnes (Lotte).
SSG starter Gwang-Hyun Kim showed a good performance from the beginning, including a perfect streak up to 1 out in the 4th inning, and won his 3rd win of the season with 1 hit, 4 walks, 9 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings. This is the first time in his personal career that Kim Gwang-hyun threw 6 or more innings and met all the conditions for less than 1 hit and no runs on 4 balls. The bullpen, which started with Noh Kyung-eun, also evaded Lotte’s pursuit.
In the batting line, center hitters Choi Jeong and Choi Joo-hwan created opportunities by recording multi-hits, while Kim Seong-hyun scored 2 hits and 3 RBIs, and Kim Min-sik recorded 2 hits and 1 RBI, demonstrating his ability to solve in the lower batting line.
Lotte was unable to use its strength as starter Dan Strayley collapsed with 6 hits and 5 runs (4 earned runs) in 5 innings. The four quadrants that came out from all over the place became a problem. Lee Tae-yeon and Choi Lee-joon fought hard, but there was no response from the other line. Lotte could not attack Kim Gwang-hyun at all that day, and stayed with 2 hits until the end of the game.
With Kim Gwang-hyun pitching stably, SSG took the lead thanks to an opponent’s error in the 3rd inning. After one out, when Lee Jung-beom grounded to third base, Han Dong-hee’s throw soared high and took the chance of one out and second base, and Kim Min-sik hit a double that exceeded the height of the right fielder and took a 1-0 lead.
SSG took the opportunity to load the bases with one run in the 4th inning, with a ball that hit the body of the leader Choi Jeong, and after a run, Choi Joo-hwan’s left-handed hit and a ball that hit the body of Hanyu Island. Here, Kim Seong-hyun’s right-handed hit and Lee Jung-beom’s sacrifice fly added two points to make it 3-0.
SSG added an extra point in the 5th inning and began to tighten Lotte by slowly gaining momentum. After one out, Choi Jeong’s left-handed hit, and after two outs, Choi Joo-hwan’s left-handed hit and walk made the bases full again, and Kim Seong-hyun again hit the left fielder with two RBIs and a timely hit to solve the problem.메이저사이트
SSG couldn’t add points after that, but the mound was perfect. Kim Gwang-hyun took responsibility until the 6th inning, Noh Kyung-eun in the 7th inning, and Ko Hyo-jun in the 8th inning went up to the mound in turn and tied the Lotte batters tightly.
On the other hand, Lotte failed to find a way to attack despite the good pitching of the bullpen pitchers and failed the expectations of the full crowd. SSG ended the 9th inning with Moon Seung-won instead of Seo Jin-yong and finished the first inning.
