“He was very sorry”…Go Woo-seok, who missed the 3-point mark, has faith in his commander

The closer failed to protect a three-run lead, but the manager offered encouragement instead of criticism. LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yeop still has faith in Go Woo-seok.

메이저사이트LG suffered an upset 3-4 loss against KT Wiz in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on June 6. Their season record is 68 wins, 2 draws, and 44 losses.

Leading by three runs behind starter Casey Kelly, LG brought out closer Go Woo-seok in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he started to falter after a leadoff double by Moon Sang-chul and a single by Jang Jang-woo, and gave up a walk to Park Kyung-soo with the bases loaded after Ahn Chi-young struck out.

Go Woo-seok then gave up an RBI single to Bae Jae-dae to close the gap to one run, and Kim Sang-soo walked to load the bases with one out. Go Woo-seok got a respite when Kim Min-hyuk grounded into a force out at first base, but he gave up the game-winning hit to Hwang Jae-gyun with two outs. A hard-hit grounder bounced off the glove of third baseman Moon Bo-kyung and into the outfield, allowing Kim Sang-soo to score from third base.

Moon Bo-kyung, the third baseman who couldn’t catch the ball, and Go Woo-seok, who couldn’t finish the game with his own strength, couldn’t hide their devastation. Catcher Park Dong-won, whose legs gave out as he watched the ball, fainted on the spot.

Before the 13th game of the season against KT on the 7th, LG manager Yoon Kyung-yeop said, “Isn’t that how baseball is. It’s very disappointing and upsetting from a manager’s point of view, but after 144 games, this is what they say baseball is life.” “I think the previous day’s game (on the 6th) will be better for Go Woo-seok in terms of playing baseball and in terms of playing the remaining games. I think it will be an opportunity for him to think about it one more time,” he said positively.

After the game, Kim Hyun-soo and Go Woo-seok shared positive messages with the team. “Fortunately, Kim Hyun-soo and Oh Ji-hwan played their senior roles very well. As a coach, it’s great to see the whole team,” he said, adding, “I think comforting and caring for each other in a difficult situation will help Moon Bo-kyung and Go Woo-seok recover quickly.”

The most disappointing moment for LG was giving up a walk to Park Kyung-soo with two runs on the board. “The most decisive thing was Park’s walk, and I think he must have felt why he threw a changeup with a 3-2 count when he should have thrown a fastball,” said Yeom.

“He came to me today (July 7) and was very sorry, so I felt more sorry for him. The oldest son of our team came to his father and said, ‘I’m sorry that I made our family suffer because of me,'” he said. “I said, ‘It’s okay, my oldest son, you’ve played a lot of good games, so if you take yesterday’s game and feel and think about what went wrong, it will give you a lot of strength for the remaining 30 games and big games.

Another player the coach spoke to was Moon Bo-kyung. “He said, ‘It’s all experience, and there are a few games that you won because you hit a home run, so it’s okay. But he said, ‘Don’t repeat your mistakes. “When you have a runner in front of you, you always have to think that the runner behind you is coming fast. I didn’t think about that, so when I saw the runner, I was in a hurry,” Moon said. “I told her not to worry about it (the mistake) because she’s in her second year, and she can develop into a player like Choi Jung (SSG Landers) in two or three years through experience, and she’s in the process of developing step by step.”

Moon Bo-kyung will also start in Game 7. LG’s lineup against Ko Young-pyo is Hong Chang-ki (right fielder), Shin Min-jae (second baseman), Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter), Austin Dean (first baseman), Moon Bok-kyung (third baseman), Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop), Park Dong-won (catcher), Moon Sung-joo (left fielder), and Park Hae-min (center fielder). The starting pitcher is Lee Jung-yong.

Go Woo-seok, Baek Seung-hyun, and Kim Jin-sung, who have pitched back-to-back games, will be rested. If there is a need for a closer, Yoo Young-chan will be in charge of the back end, and if not, Yoo won’t play either, according to Yeom Kyung-yup.
