I overturned it by 4 points and won… What to do with Seo Geon-chang’s second base defense for ‘fatal 2 mistakes’

The LG Twins won a come-from-behind victory against the Samsung Lions.

LG overturned the inferiority by 4 points in the beginning and won, but it is uncomfortable. Second baseman Seo Geon-chang made a long-awaited start because he made a series of fatal errors in defense.

Seo Geon-chang started as second baseman number 7 in the match against Samsung held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 14th. It is the first start in 9 games since the Jamsil KIA match on April 29th.

Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop said in early May, “Seo Geon-chang’s pace is going down. He will have maintenance time for about a week and start again.” In the meantime, second baseman Kim Min-seong started. On this day, Kim Min-seong took a break and Seo Geon-chang returned to the starting lineup. 

In the meantime, Seo Geon-chang has occasionally played as a pinch hitter and great defense. From the KIA game on April 30th to the Samsung game on the 12th, he played as a substitute in 5 games and recorded no hits in 4 at-bats.

Seo Kun-chang made a series of mistakes on defense in the bottom of the first inning. The batted ball hit by Lee Jae-hyeon, the lead hitter, flew high into the outfield behind the second baseman. Outfielders also came running, but second baseman Seo Geon-chang was the closest. However, at the moment of the catch he was hit by the glove and dropped it. He had an obstacle called sunlight during the daytime game, but it was a hit that he should have caught.

He then ran to second base and caught Kang Han-wool’s batted ball, but dropped it while taking it out of the glove, and could not throw it. The record is a hit in the infield. There was a lack of defensive coverage.

In the 1st and 1st and 2nd bases, Ja-wook Koo hit a long hit that fell out as a priority prize. Both runners came home, and Seo Kun-chang, who received a throw to right field, threw to third base to catch Koo Ja-wook, who was running to third base. However, the one-bound thrown hit the back of the sliding Koo Ja-wook and was deflected into the foul area.안전놀이터

Koo Ja-wook got up again and ran home, and third baseman Moon Bo-kyung caught it in front of the crowd and threw it home, but it missed sideways with a one-bound. Even Koo Ja-wook scored. Previously, Seo Kun-chang’s throw to third base was recorded as an error. It was an unfortunate mistake. 

In the first inning, the lead batter was sent out with an error, and since he only made two errors in the first inning, the starter Plutko was shaken with three runs and the game was difficult. 

Seo Geon-chang was also silent in the attack with no hits in 3 at-bats. After two outs in the 2nd inning, the second baseman grounded out, after one out in the 4th inning, the first baseman grounded out, and after one out in the 6th inning, he struck out three pitches. When LG turned 6-5 at the beginning of the 7th inning, Min-Sung Kim was replaced at the end of the 7th. It was a defense boost. 

Seo Geon-chang’s batting average in the last 10 games is 6.03 (1 hit in 16 at-bats). There is no breakthrough in both hitting and defense.
