Worst line injury LG spends a brutal April, can’t stand it if the defense is shaken
This is the team with the least mistakes (89) 온라인카지노last year. Aside from errors, the defensive stats are also good. DER (in-play batting average) also ranked first at 0.702. He has been at the top of the defensive metric in recent years.
That’s why the recent appearance of mistakes is unfamiliar. It is now time to fill 10 games, but mistakes are conceded and runs shake the mound operation. This is the story of LG, where even the defense is shaking amid a rope injury.
The match against Sajik Lotte on the 11th was especially so. After allowing the score to be tied at 4-4 at the end of the 6th inning, he made two consecutive errors and allowed two runs. In the 2nd, 2nd and 3rd bases, Moon Bo-kyung made a mistake throwing to 1st base, and Park Dong-won made another mistake when he failed to catch 1st baseman Austin Dean’s home throw. Third base runner Han Dong-hee and second base runner Noh Jin-hyuk stepped on the home side by side and gave up the 6th point in vain.
The previous mistake also came out as an error. In the process of handling Hwang Seong-bin’s batted ball at second out and third base at the end of the third inning, a catch error occurred. Seo Geon-chang failed to properly catch Mun Seong-joo’s throw, and in the meantime, Hwang Seong-bin took a turn in the infield. On this day, 3 out of 6 points allowed by LG did not come out unless there was an error.
Of course, mistakes cannot be ‘zero’. However, every time you have to cut off the opponent’s attack flow, mistakes come out. In addition, when rookie Park Myeong-geun climbs the mound, he makes many mistakes. In the match against KT in Suwon on the 2nd, which was the second match of the opening two-game series, Park Myeong-geun induced a ground ball, but Moon Bo-gyeong made a mistake. The game on the 11th was Park Myeong-geun’s debut as a starting pitcher, but Seo Geon-chang missed the catch.Park Myung-geun showed competitiveness against left-handed batters with a fastball in the late 140 km/h range and a changeup acquired as an attribute at camp, but he was not helped by wild beasts. So far, starting second baseman Seo Geon-chang has committed 4 errors and starting third baseman Moon Bo-gyeong has committed 3 errors. If the infield is shaken like this, you cannot play a normal game.
The bigger problem is that there is no alternative right now due to the line injury. Starting shortstop Oh Ji-hwan left due to a side injury, and veteran Kim Min-seong, who backed up the hot corner, is actually taking the shortstop for the first time in 13 years. Son Ho-young, who can play the infield like Kim Min-seong, is also out due to injury.
It is good news that Kim Joo-seong, who was down to the 2nd team due to shoulder discomfort, recovered quickly, but Kim Joo-seong can also be included in the 1st team entry from the 13th. Excluding Austin Dean, who plays as first baseman, six infielders are registered in the entry, but among the backup resources, there is no player who has consistently experienced the first team stage except for Jung Joo-hyun. Song Chan-eui has the advantage of batting rather than defense, and Choi Hyeon-joon has no first-team experience.
In the end, if Seo Geon-chang and Moon Bo-kyung collapse, there is no answer. There are ups and downs at bat, but you have to be consistent on defense. Due to a rope injury, the entire team is in ‘endurance mode’, but Seo Geon-chang and Moon Bo-kyung have to endure more than anyone else.
That is until mid-May when power is restored to normal. It is fortunate that the team recorded a good record of 6 wins and 3 losses at the beginning of the season, but there are many games to be played before all infielders return.
