Four straight wins and a jump to third place

Manager Yoon Kyung-yup “Park Hae-min’s ‘3-hit triple’ was the most important, I praise him”

It was the decisive blow.

The LG Twins completed a come-from-behind 6-3 victory over the NC Dinos in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on Saturday. They won their fourth straight game and jumped to third place. They also completed a series sweep of NC. It has been 749 days since the three-game series in Changwon on May 6-8, 2022.

The starting lineup was Hong Chang-ki (right fielder), Park Hae-min (center fielder), Kim Hyun-soo (left fielder), Austin Dean (first baseman), Park Dong-won (designated hitter), Moon Bo-kyung (third baseman), Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop), Goo Bon-hyeok (second baseman), and Heo Do-hwan (catcher). The starting pitcher was Casey Kelly.

Just before the start of the game, a major rainstorm hit, calling for a 2:40 p.m. play ball, 40 minutes late. The rain continued to fall and the game was played in the rain.

Despite the bad weather, Park shined. Down 2-3 in the bottom of the fifth inning, Park hit a three-run triple with the bases loaded. It made the score 5-3, and it was the game-winning hit. She finished the game 2-for-4 with two doubles, three RBIs and two runs scored.

Austin went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs, while Hong Chang-ki, Koo Bon-hyuk, and Heo Do-hwan each had one hit.

Kelly earned his sixth quality start of the season (6+ innings, 3 earned runs or less-QS) with five hits, one walk and three strikeouts in six innings. It was his first quality start in seven games since May 12 against the Doosan Bears (seven innings, one earned run, no walks). Kelly, who took five losses in that span, posted his second win of the season (6-2) against the NC. His ERA dropped slightly from 5.72 to 5.60.

His total pitch count was 89. He threw a mix of four-seam fastballs (40), curveballs (20), sliders (12), forks (10), changeups (4), and two-seam fastballs (3). His fastball topped out at 147 km/h.

Kim Jin-sung and Park Myung-geun each pitched one scoreless inning of relief, and closer Yoo Young-chan pitched one scoreless inning for the save. Jin-sung Kim 메이저사이트 moved into a tie for third in that category with 11 holds on the season, while Young-chan Yoo moved into fourth with 11 saves.

After the game, LG head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Kelly did her job as a starter. Hae-min Park’s three-run triple was the most important point in the game when we needed a run. I want to praise her.”

“Our bullpen of Kim Jin-seong, Park Myung-geun, and Yoo Young-chan pitched three clean innings after the starter. It was the first time in a long time that we had a clean second half of the game. I hope this pattern can be maintained.”

“We had a lot of fans come out and support us in the bad weather, which helped us win four in a row. We are grateful to them.”

LG scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, trailing 2-3. After a grounder to first base by Oh Ji-hwan, Koo Bon-hyuk singled to center field. NC third 토토사이트 추천 baseman Seo Ho-cheol watched the ball all the way, but it didn’t cross the third base foul line. Heo Do-hwan singled to left and Hong Chang-ki followed with a walk to load the bases.

Park Hae-min was the next batter. He hit a fastball and slider from NC starter Daniel Castano. Park hit a three-run triple to left-center field. LG roared back to cut the deficit to 5-3. Park Hae-min was ruled out at third base, but the call was overturned for a save after a video review requested by LG.
