The LG Twins changed the third base coach.
Prior to the away game against the NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on the 3rd, LG lowered running coach Kim Min-ho to the second team and raised coach Park Yong-geun to the first team running coach. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop of LG said, “I’m trying to change the atmosphere.”
LG has been pursuing baseball since the beginning of this season, but it has been pointed out that it breaks the flow of the game with too many stealing failures, checks, and runners. In the match against NC on the 2nd, there was an unfortunate scene in the base game.
In the beginning of the 2nd inning, which was pursued 1-2, when Park Dong-won was at bat with 1 out and 1st base, 8th, Kim Min-seong ran to second base after a full count battle, and Park Dong-won played a run-and-hit strategy to hit or pick out the ball depending on the situation. Park Dong-won struck out on a swing, and Kim Min-seong was also tagged out at second base, ending the inning.
Even in the top of the 8th inning, when LG led 5-3, the stolen base broke the flow. Hong Chang-ki, the leader, went to base with a left-handed hit, and when Moon Seong-joo was batting second, Hong Chang-ki tried to steal second base, but was out. At the time, Moon Seong-joo was in a sacrifice bunt motion, and NC blocked the runner’s lead while checking. Hong Chang-ki ran to second base on the second pitch following a bunt foul on the first pitch, and Moon Seong-joo, who was in a bunt stance, did not bunt because it was a high outside ball. NC catcher Park Se-hyuk throws Hong Chang-ki out. LG’s plan to create 1 company and 2nd base failed. In the beginning of the ninth inning, Oh Ji-hwan, who had been on base with a walk after one death, took a motion to run to second base in a full count game while Moon Bo-gyeong was at bat, but was caught in a check and put out.
LG, who finished in vain at the opportunity to widen the score, finished the game with Ham Deok-joo, who came to the finish at the end of the 9th inning with one out and 1st and 2nd bases, hitting Yoon Hyung-joon and Park Se-hyuk in a row.메이저놀이터
LG won and escaped from a 3-game losing streak, but it was not a cool feeling. With two failed base steals on the day, LG’s stealing success rate dropped to 59.1%.
LG tried to change the atmosphere of running base play by changing the third base running coach. It is interpreted as the same as changing the hitting coach when the batting is sluggish.
