SSG Landers, who took a break for three days from the 21st, ended their three-week series with a winning streak.

SSG won 7-4 in the home game against NC Dinos in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 24th. After the Incheon LG Twins game on the 20th, SSG, who could not play the game due to a day of rest and cancellation of rain, made a season record of 57 wins, 1 draw and 46 losses (0.553) while running 2 consecutive wins that day. In addition, as the gap between 3rd place SSG and 2nd place KT Wiz narrowed by 0.5 games, SSG prepared a situation where it could aim to recapture the 2nd place.스포츠토토

SSG took the first point in the first inning with Park Kun-woo’s two-run shot, then pursued with Choi Ji-hoon’s 1 RBI and 3 bases at the end of the 1st inning, and Lee Jae-hak’s wild shooting and Choi Jeong’s solo shot turned the game around at once. In addition, follow-up hitter Choi Joo-hwan drew a solo arch and took a 4-2 lead.

SSG, who added 2 points and 1 point at the end of the 2nd and 3rd innings, respectively, stopped NC from pursuing until the end. Starting pitcher Kirk McCarty recorded 7 hits (3 homers), 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and 4 runs in 7⅓ innings, achieving his 8th win of the season. Although he struggled by allowing two home runs only against Kim Hyung-jun, he minimized bullpen consumption by dragging the innings as long as possible.

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said before the match against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 25th, “I didn’t think he would score 4 runs in the bottom of the first inning. It seems that the players have loosened up a bit,” he recalled from the previous day’s game.

Coach Kim continued, “Mccarty scored 4 runs, but I think he did a great job pitching. Even when he hit a 2-run home run, he thought, ‘I shouldn’t do this’, but I still thought he would throw 6 innings, and fortunately the batters Getting 4 points was the key to victory.”

SSG, aiming for a three-game winning streak against Gwak Bin, is Choo Shin-soo (designated hitter) – Park Seong-han (shortstop) – Choi Jeong (third baseman) – Choi Joo-hwan (second baseman) – Kim Kang-min (center fielder) – Han Yu-seom (right fielder) – Ha Jae-hoon (left fielder) – Jeon Ui The lineup was organized in the order of San (first baseman) and Cho Hyung-woo (catcher). The pitcher in charge of the starting lineup is Kim Gwang-hyun.

Instead of Choi Ji-hoon, veteran outfielder Kim Kang-min starts the game, and Park Seong-han forms a table setter with Choo Shin-soo. Regarding Choi Ji-hoon’s exclusion from the starting lineup, manager Kim Won-hyeong explained the reason for the change in the lineup, saying, “Choi Ji-hoon suffered a slight knee injury at second base the previous day (during base run).” It is also unclear whether he will play as a substitute in the second half of the game.

Kim Seong-hyun, who was replaced with Kim Chan-hyung earlier in the 6th inning the previous day, avoided a major injury. Director Kim Won-hyung said, “I fell out because I had a slight phlegm while swinging the day before, but today they say it’s fine.”
