LG Twins had a come-from-behind winning series with a thrilling come-from-behind victory.
LG completed the winning series with 2 consecutive victories after 1 loss by coming from behind to win 8-5 in the last game of 3 consecutive weekend games against Samsung held at Lions Park in Daegu on the 14th.
LG started the chase with Park Dong-won’s season 9 two-run four in the 4th inning behind 1-5. After Buchanan went down, Park Hae-min’s infield hit on the first baseman’s side in the top of the 7th chased after one run, and Hong Chang-ki stepped home with a bold base run play during a wild pitch, and the score was tied 5-5. In the second out and third base that followed, Oh Ji-hwan succeeded in turning 6-5 with a timely hit. LG, who kept a 1-point lead on thin ice, put a wedge in the game by sweeping the 4th RBI with Park Dong-won sweeping doubles in the right field in the 9th inning with 1 out and 1st and 2nd base.
LG starter Adam Plutko allowed 5 runs (4 earned) with 9 hits and 3 strikeouts in 6 innings amid a defensive mistake in the early stages, but with the help of the batting line, he held on for 6 innings with no 4 balls and his 6th win of the season. On the same day, he tied for first place with NC Peddy, who won the match against Kiwoom. On the 9th of last month, the record of 6 consecutive quality starts, which had continued since the match against Samsung, was stopped. From the 7th inning, the bullpen was activated to keep the victory. Following Park Myeong-geun (1 inning perfect) and Yoo Yeong-chan (⅔ innings), Ham Deok-joo recorded his second save of the season with a perfect finish in 1 1/3 innings.먹튀검증
LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop praised Plutko, saying, “Although Plutko lost runs due to mistakes by fielders in the early stages, she played her role well as a starter, and the young winning team stably blocked the last three innings and was able to win.” He continued, “On the other line, Park Dong-won’s home run created an atmosphere for pursuit, and Hong Chang-ki and Park Hae-min’s good performances brought about the flow of the game. I would like to praise Oh Ji-hwan and Park Dong-won for their decisive performances that confirmed the victory.” In the end, he said, “It was a situation that happened with a large score difference in the first half of the game, but I am happy and grateful that our players were able to show a good game while increasing their concentration to the fans who came to cheer for the away.”
