“I try to avoid three consecutive fights as much as possible.”
SSG Landers got a thrilling victory after a long time. SSG won the match against Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes 7-6 after an extended bloody battle on the 7th. It was Baek Seung-gun, not closer Seo Jin-yong, who scored a run in the top of the 11th inning and took the mound in the bottom of the 11th inning. Baek Seung-gun took the mound from the 10th inning and was responsible for two innings.
A one-point difference is actually a save situation. SSG’s closer is Seo Jin-yong, who is showing the best pace in the league this season. Seo Jin-yong recorded 1 win and 13 saves in 15 games this season. He has an earned run average of 0. There are days when he lets out runners, but he continues to have no runs.
However, Seo Jin-yong was in a situation where he started all of the previous two games out of three weekend matches against Kiwoom. Unfortunately, save opportunities were created in every game, and Seo Jin-yong took the mound and earned one scoreless inning in a row. If you pitch until the 7th game, 3 consecutive fights. Considering the number of pitches and innings, Seo Jin-yong was not in a situation where he could not pitch at all, but manager Kim Won-hyung has recently revealed his iron rule for mound management several times. 안전놀이터
In particular, the top priority consideration in setting up the bullpen is ‘not to make 3 consecutive fights possible’. Director Kim Won-hyung said, “Other things are fine, but if possible, I think it’s better not to do 3 consecutive fights. As with Seo Jin-yong, there are cases where we do 3 consecutive fights in unavoidable situations, but we try not to do it as much as possible.”
In the bottom of the 11th inning against Kiwoom on the 7th, Baek Seung-gun, not Seo Jin-yong, pitched two innings to give Seo Jin-yong a complete break. Of course, there was a suffocating crisis as Baek Seung-gun was shaken. Baek Seung-gun, who had difficulties in the game, sent out two runners with a walk and a hit. Baek Seung-gun, who was concentrated in the 3b match against pinch hitter Kim Hwi-jip, faced the greatest crisis. But he overcame it himself, and finally overcame it. Manager Kim Won-hyung gave Seo Jin-yong a break as promised, and Baek Seung-gun proved his worth by pitching two innings. And the team kept winning until the end.
