 LG pitcher Choi Won-tae allowed the most runs since the trade. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop already threw in the towel in the 4th episode. 5 players were replaced at once. 안전놀이터

Choi Won-tae pitched as a starting pitcher in the match against NC held at Changwon NC Park on the 25th. It was the first confrontation with NC this season. Choi Won-tae was strong against NC last year with an average ERA of 1.73, 5 wins and 3 wins.

However, it was hectic from the start of the first episode on this day. In the first inning, top hitter Son Ah-seop hit the first pitch and went on base with a heavy hit. Park Min-woo also attacked the first pitch and hit the second baseman’s glove and hit in front of the right fielder. Park Gun-woo tried to bunt, but the catcher foul-flyed out. 

Martin hit the second pitch and scored the first point with a timely hit to the left. Kwon Hee-dong then hit a timely hit in the middle left and ran away 2-0. Do Tae-Hoon made it 3-0 with a right-handed hit at 1st, 1st and 3rd base. 

The NC lineup swung again in the third inning. When lead hitter Kwon Hee-dong walked on base, Do Tae-hun made a sacrifice bunt to make it 1 out and 2 base. Seo Ho-cheol’s ball hit the shortstop infield, and Oh Ji-hwan attempted a diving catch, but it was hit by the glove and rolled sideways. At 1st and 3rd base, Joo-Won Kim hit a double that hit the middle left fence and scored 1 RBI. All starting batters achieved hits early. 

With one out, 2nd and 3rd base, he ran away to 5-0 with 1 RBI and a timely hit that pierced Ahn Jung-yeol’s forward defense. Batter runner Ahn Joong-yeol advanced to second base as the catcher missed the center fielder’s home throw. Son A-seop brought all two runners home with a timely hit in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd bases. They ran away 7-0. 

Then, in the beginning of the 4th inning, LG appointed Hong Chang-ki at bat with Son Ho-young as a pinch hitter. Then, Jaewon Lee was appointed as a pinch hitter for Bokyung Moon.

And at the end of the 4th inning defense, a lot of key players were replaced. Oh Ji-hwan was removed and Jung Joo-hyeon (third baseman) was put in, while Park Dong-won was removed and backup catcher Heo Do-hwan played. Park Hae-min was also excluded, and Choi Seung-min, who was traded from NC, played as center fielder. 

Hong Chang-ki (right fielder) Shin Min-jae (2nd baseman) Moon Bo-gyeong (3rd baseman) Austin (designated hitter) Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop) Kim Min-seong (1st baseman) Park Dong-won (catcher) Moon Sung-joo (left fielder) Park Hae-min (center fielder)’s starting lineup is Son Ho-young, Shin Min-jae, Lee Jae-won- The lineup changed to Austin, Joo-Hyun Jung, Min-Sung Kim, Do-Hwan Heo, Seong-Joo Moon, and Seung-Min Choi. Excluding Austin, Shin Min-jae, and Moon Sung-joo, it is a backup lineup. 

The score gap widened to 0-7 in the beginning, and considering that the NC pitcher was Peddy, it was a break for the main players in preparation for tomorrow’s game. It’s like throwing in the towel.
