On this day, LG runners seemed to have a perfect grasp of Ko Young-pyo’s pitching form. Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop is trying to steal so many bases that he is reckless at the helm of LG this season.

Head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop emphasized the first run in the short-term game where ace pitchers face off, stealing bases and bunting in a one-point fight. Oh Ji-hwan said, Even if you run, there is no law that the catcher always throws accurately. It is great to put pressure on the defense side. In short-term games, it is difficult to get consecutive hits because the first to third starters continue to throw. He may go out with a hit or walk and make an error with a stolen bases. If you go to third base, it will be easier to score, he said.
