“Normally, I would be upset,” SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said in a briefing before the 29th game against the LG Twins, reflecting on the previous day’s upset loss. But he wasn’t. Kim Won-hyung explained.

“The day before (0-14 loss on the 27th), we lost by a lot of runs, and yesterday (the 28th), we came back from behind. It was very disappointing, but I thought to myself. Normally, I would have been angry. Yesterday, I thought, ‘There’s still a lot of matches. In the future, I will pay more attention to (facial expressions) and try to be calm.” I was more worried about continuing to play when I was in a bad mood. I think it’s okay to take a break once. We’ll come back tomorrow with a fresh mind.”카지노사이트

In the end, the game against LG on the 29th was canceled during the briefing. Coach Kim Won-hyung left with a smile on his face. SSG will play a three-game series against the Kiwoom Heroes at the Gocheok Dome on the 30th. Kim Kwang-hyun, who was scheduled to start on the 28th, will pitch on the 29th.

  • How is Shin-Soo Choo doing?

“It’s a bruise. He’ll be out when he plays (the briefing began before the rainout was called).”

  • Park Jong-hoon pitched well in his comeback (5 innings, 3 hits, 7 strikeouts, 1 run).

“I pitched better than I have in a long time. I had some walks, but that’s how you have to pitch. It would be nice to cut down on the walks, but I think it will help the rotation if he pitches with confidence after yesterday’s game.”

  • He seems to be conscious about stealing bases.

“When I’m worried about Jong-hoon giving up a lot of stolen bases because of his pitching form, I can’t focus on the batter. If I try to improve that, I’ll give up a lot of runs because I can’t compete with the hitters. This is the best he can do right now. You have to trust your pitches.”

  • Is there any preparation for LG’s aggressive baserunning?

“Kim Kwang-hyun has a short slide step. It’s Kwang-hyun and Casey Kelly, so it’s not going to be a high-scoring game, and they’re going to try to put runners in scoring position. Our bats will have to do a good job.”

  • On the timing of Noh’s changeup.

“I think I got a sign on the curve. We have to be careful. It’s not forbidden.”

  • Did you emphasize anything to the players about playing against a team with a running baseball image?

“We talked about it. But I can’t disclose the details. Yesterday, our starting pitcher was Jong-hoon Park, so we had to play with stolen bases.”

“Jong-hoon also tries to prevent stolen bases. But if you try to prevent it in the game and take your pitching form early, the ball will be weak. You have to give up runners and compete with the batters.”

  • The now-canceled game will be held during the Asian Games break, and the two teams could face off against each other and LG.
