Lee Yong-kyu started as the first left fielder in the LG-Kiwoom game of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 5th.
Lee Yong-gyu, who appeared as the lead batter at the end of the first inning, made LG starter Lee Min-ho sweat with his unique cut. I watched the first pitch of the strike. After picking the ball on the second pitch, he fouled off four balls in a row.
All balls that were close to the S zone but difficult to hit were all cut. Catchers Lee Min-ho and Park Dong-won changed pitches in various ways and tried to get the batter to respond, but the ‘play with Yonggyu’ continued.
Lee Yong-kyu hit a curve with no drop in the 7th pitch and hit the right-middle.
Lee Yong-kyu, who reached first base, ran past second base and ran straight to third base when an infield grounder hit by second batter Kim Hye-seong hit LG Oh Ji-hwan’s foot and bounced. Oh Ji-hwan, who recorded the mistake, bowed his head for a long time in regret.
At the end of the first inning, runner Kim Hye-seong also attempted to steal second base at the opportunity to score first and third base safely, and Park Dong-won stopped throwing while watching the movement of third base runner Lee Yong-gyu at the moment he was about to throw the ball to second base.
At the end of the first inning, pitcher Lee Mi-ho caught Kim Woong-bin’s ground ball on second and third base. Third base runner Lee Yong-kyu got stuck on the rundown. Catcher Park Dong-won closed the distance and threw the ball to third baseman Moon Bo-kyung while driving third base runner Lee Yong-gyu.
However, Lee Yong-gyu, who has his own quick feet, bought time to advance the second base runner to the third base. When Moon Bo-gyeong, who was in a hurry, dropped the ball, Lee Yong-gyu rushed to the home. He scored Kiwoom’s first goal with a head first slide.
While receiving congratulations from coach Hong Won-ki, Yong-gyu Lee gave a high-five of joy with his fellow players. It was a pleasant start to avenge the 7-1 defeat the previous day.
In the continued chance, Kiwoom ended the first inning with a 2-0 lead, with Russell’s pitcher infield hitting an additional run. 메이저사이트
In the top of the 4th, LG also launched a counterattack. Leading batter Austin started with a left-handed hit, and made up for the error at the bottom of the first inning by hitting a double at the right time. However, the inning ended with a one-run chase due to the follow-up hitter’s misfire.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, another opportunity came to Kiwoom Lee Yong-gyu. Lee Yong-gyu prepared for a bunt at first base. The first pitch was the ball, and he tried to bunt consecutively, but it was called a foul. The second foul hit was caught by catcher Park Dong-won with a one-bound and tagged Lee Yong-gyu.
Kiwoom conducted a video review of Lee Yong-kyu’s pair and foul, and as a result of the review, it was declared a foul. Lee Yong-gyu let out a sigh of relief.
