‘Killer depth’ symbolized the LG Twins this season.
The LG Twins had an unusually high number of injuries and losses. From the beginning of the season, core resources such as Go Woo-seok and Oh Ji-hwan went down. In addition, the team’s core pitching resources such as Kim Yun-sik, Lee Min-ho, and Jung Woo-young were all in a slump.
However, with the first half of the season almost over, the LG Twins are at the top of the leaderboard. A few days ago, Kim Min-sung was removed from the first-team roster due to injury, and Park Myung-geun was also removed due to injury, but no one is talking about a crisis for LG.
This is because we know that LG has been through much worse. At least for the 2023 season, the phrase “we can’t play baseball because we don’t have anyone” will not apply to LG.
The LG Twins rode a strong batting lineup to an easy victory over the team with the highest team batting average. On July 9, the LG Twins pounded out 16 hits in a 12-3 victory over the Lotte Giants in Sajik, Busan. With their second straight win, LG maintained a 2.5-game lead over second-place SSG Landers.
LG opened the scoring in the top of the first inning when Moon Sung-joo doubled and Austin Dean followed with a solo home run. Lotte got a run back in the bottom of the first when Yoon Dong-hee led off with a single to left and Jeon Jun-woo followed with a double to left-center, and two batters later, Yoo Kang-nam, Park Seung-wook, and Kim Min-seok hit back-to-back singles to tie the game at 2-2.
LG took a 3-2 lead in the top of the third when Austin again singled to right field with runners on second and third. Lotte tied the game again at 3-3 in the bottom of the fourth when Yoo Kang-nam hit a solo home run to left field. But LG took a 4-3 lead in the top of the sixth when Moon Bo-kyung singled to right field with runners on first and second, and Shin Min-jae followed with a two-run double to left field to make it 6-3.바카라사이트
In the seventh inning, the bats came alive, scoring six runs to put the game out of reach. LG starter Adam Plutko pitched six innings, allowing three runs on eight hits to pick up his 11th win of the season, tying him with Eric Peddie (NC) for the team lead in wins. Manager Yoon Kyung-yeop announced that he would give Plutko the day off after the game.
