The LG Twins, who are making their first appearance in the Korean Series (best-of-seven) for the first time in 29 years, will try to win the title with their fiery offense.LG manager Yoon Kyung-yeop unveiled the batting order against KT right-handed sidearm pitcher Ko Young-pyo ahead of the first game of the KS against KT Wiz at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Sunday .Outfielders Hong Chang-ki and Park Hae-min will set the table, while Kim Hyun-soo, Austin Dean, and Oh Ji-hwan will bat in the center of the order .Moon Bo-kyung bats sixth, while Park Dong-won, Moon Sung-joo, and Shin Min-jae form the lower order. “The first game is more important than any other game in the Korean Series,” Yoon said, “and we will play aggressive baseball.”
When Hong Chang-ki, the leadoff hitter, walked in the bottom of the first inning with the score 0-0, he explained that he had long debated three options for Park Hae-min’s subsequent at-bat: stealing a base, sending him out on a bunt, or going for a hit-and-run. LG is playing in the Korean Series for the first time in 21 years, since 2002. The last time the team celebrated the Korean Series was in 1994.Yoon, who has already named his starting four pitchers – Casey Kelly, Won-tae Choi, Chan-kyu Lim, and Yun-sik Kim – also explained his pitching rotation principles. “I’ll change them after seeing their pitches,” he said. “Even if they didn’t give up a run, I’ll change them if they’re hitting hard, and if they gave up a run, I’ll wait and see if it was due to a fielding error.” “The experienced Lee Jung-yong, Ham Deok-joo, and Kim Jin-sung will take the mound as the second pitchers,” he added .”I think our hitters will take the pressure off once we achieve the important goal of scoring first and getting our first win,” Yeom said. “Seeing the players so eager to win, I asked them not to hesitate in the meeting and to play calmly and composed.” “If I wasn’t afraid back then, I’m more or less organized now,” said Yeom, 카지노사이트킹 who is making his second Korean Series appearance in nine years after leading the Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom Heroes) in 2014.
