We did a good job of attacking the N’s high zone. I look forward to the next one

5 straight wins – the reason why Yeomgalang, the sole runner-up, feels good ‘Big ball away from home’

“I’m looking forward to the next game for the Enns.”

For the LG Twins, it was a very important game. The foreign pitcher who had been struggling came back to life, and the batting lineup showed focus to extend their winning streak. Now it’s on to the fight for first place.

On the 28th, LG won 7-5 against the SSG Landers at SSG Landers Field in Incheon behind six innings of two-run ball from starter Detrick Enns and a pair of three-run homers from Hong Chang-ki and Koo Bon-hyeok. LG, which has won five straight games, became the third team to reach the 30-win plateau behind the Kia Tigers and Doosan Bears, while second-place Doosan moved into sole possession of second place after losing 3-12 to KT.

More importantly, Enns pitched well. Six innings, four hits, one walk, nine strikeouts, two runs. He was shaky in the third inning, giving up two runs, but then shut them down in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings. Enns threw 101 pitches through the sixth inning, his sixth quality start of the season and fifth win of the season.

He threw 48 fastballs up to 151 kilometers, 17 cutters up to 141 kilometers, 15 curves up to 123 kilometers, 11 changeups up to 135 kilometers, and 10 sliders up to 133 kilometers, confirming his early season form.

“Before the game, the pitching coach and the analytics team told us to use the high zone a lot today, but Enes executed well and pitched well,” said LG manager Yeom Kyung-yup. “I’m looking forward to the next game by showing good pitching today.”

After squandering a two-out opportunity in the top of the first, LG got back-to-back walks to No. 8 Moon Bo-kyung and No. 9 Shin Min-jae to put runners on first and second with one out in the top of the second, and No. 1 Hong Chang-ki took a 128-kilometer slider up the middle on a 2B pitch and launched it over the right-field wall for the game-winning triple.

A shaky Kim Kwang-hyun was pulled in the top of the third. This time, Koo Bon-hyuk hit a three-run homer. After back-to-back singles by Austin and Park Dong-won put runners on first and second, Koo sent a changeup over the left-field wall off Kim Kwang-hyun. Moon Bo-kyung doubled and Hong Chang-ki followed with an RBI single to make it 7-0, forcing SSG to pull their ace Kim Kwang-hyun.

In the bottom of the ninth, Lee Woo-chan came to the plate with the bases loaded and two outs when Choi Jun-woo gave up a triple 토토사이트 that cleared the first base line. However, he did not allow another run to score and preserved the 7-5 victory.

“It was disappointing to see the chasers give up walks in easy situations, but our winning trio of Park Myung-geun, Choi Dong-hwan, and Yoo Young-chan pitched their own innings to get the win,” said Yeom.

“We wanted to play a little more big ball in the away game, but today we showed the fans big ball with Hong Chang-ki and Koo Bon-hyeok’s three-run home runs, and I hope there will be more games like this in the future,” said Yeom. “I want to praise Hong Chang-ki for his good performance with four RBIs.”

“We were able to continue our winning streak thanks to the fans who traveled to Incheon to support us even though it was a weekday. Thank you.” He also thanked the fans for their support.
