The match between LG and KIA held at Jamsil Stadium on the 1st was played under a heat wave warning. The home team, LG players, finished training early and withdrew to the clubhouse in a weather where even standing still was sweaty.메이저도메인

But at that point when it should have been quiet, the spacious Jamsil Stadium suddenly became noisy. It was the sound made by the KIA team stretching in the outfield after arriving at the stadium. The players energetically shouted, clapped again, and shouted ‘fighting’ again and started training vigorously. It was an energy that was difficult to see as a team that had fallen into a losing streak.

Actually, it was a strange flow that the atmosphere was good. KIA recorded 7 wins, 15 losses and 1 draw (.318) for the month of June. It was ninth in the league in June. At one time, they had a battle with a 50% win rate, but their win rate and ranking slipped amidst the poor performance in June, and they fell to 9th at the end of June. Even though there was a lot of season left, it was a performance that was inevitably drained.

However, the KIA players were well aware that it would be the end if the atmosphere collapsed. Veteran players led and tried to revive the spirit of juniors, and players tried to focus more on one play. The players who finished stretching happily also hurriedly prepared for the match after finishing their practice seriously when training individually.

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk, who did not even see the stretching of the players on the schedule, laughed at the story of the reporters, saying, “It looks like something good is happening,” and said, “The players know (the atmosphere) best. , I think I did that in order not to sag. He highly appreciated the effort to maintain such energy internally.

No matter how good the atmosphere is during training, it is meaningless if the flow does not continue in the game. KIA, who lost three consecutive matches, did their best in their respective positions despite meeting Adam Plutko, their foreign ace, who continued their undefeated streak this year. As a result, he was able to escape from a 3-game losing streak with a thrilling come-from-behind victory 5-3. It was the best result achieved in a situation where a losing streak could be prolonged.

From the first episode, the concentration of the players shined. After two outs in the first inning, Park Chan-ho showed Ho-bi, when Kim Hyun-soo hit pitcher Kim Geon-guk and refracted the ball. The dugout on the third base side and the spectator seats became hot. Kim Geon-guk, who started as an alternate starter, did not give up and did not collapse in the fight for leadership at the beginning of the game.

In the 4th episode, he showed off his potential to destroy Plutko, which was showing off the best performance this year, with concentration. After one out, Choi Hyeong-woo went to base with a hit ball, and the KIA batters who saw Plutko’s ball one by one held on to it and refused to let go. Rather than a big swing, I got a hit with a swing that focused on accurate contact, and in the end, it could lead to a big result of 5 points in the 4th inning. Everyone was concentrating on the at-bat, and that’s how we crossed the big mountain called Plutko.

Ryu Ji-hyeok, a Socrates Hwangdae, hit consecutive hits at 1 out and 1 base, and made the bases loaded with 1 point. Here, coach Kim Jong-guk’s pinch hit strategy also shined. It was relatively early in the game, but instead of catcher Han Jun-su, left-handed pinch hitter Ko Jong-wook was put in to win. When Ko Jong-wook hit a two-run double that flowed through the right field, the game turned upside down, and KIA was able to find the flow.

Then Park Chan-ho’s infield hit and timely hit and Choi Won-joon’s right-handed hit hit just in time. Every time a hit came out, the runners showed active and error-free running base play, distracting Plutko. Hwang Dae-in, who came up after adjusting in the 2nd group, fought hard with 3 hits.

After taking the lead like that, the bullpen was responsible for many of the remaining innings. Starting with Kim Ki-hoon, who started as the first runner in the third inning, Park Jun-pyo, Lee Jun-young, Jeon Sang-hyun, and Choi Ji-min all pitched well and kept the lead they had barely caught. Kim Ki-hoon, Park Jun-pyo and Choi Ji-min got 4 outs, and Jeon Sang-hyun showed off the spirit of the KIA bullpen by throwing out 5 batters in a row. With no player inferior, everyone worked together to break the losing streak.

The reason coach Kim Jong-guk, who achieved 100 wins in the KBO League on this day, had a relatively long post-game impression was because all the players performed their functions in their positions. Manager Kim thanked the players, saying, “I felt the players’ will to break the losing streak.” I was able to solve it,” and selected episode 4 as the winning point.꽁머니사이트

“All the pitchers, from Kim Ki-hoon to Choi Ji-min, who took the mound at the end, did their part. In particular, Jeon Sang-hyun and Choi Ji-min were perfectly responsible for the 3 innings,” he said. I want to praise the beasts as well,” he praised the players, including Hwang Dae-in and Ko Jong-wook. It was a match where the players deserved praise. If the atmosphere doesn’t collapse, the opportunity will surely come someday. KIA confirmed in Jamsil on the 1st that it is still holding on to the former.
