From a quick pitcher change to a squeeze… NC coach Kang In-kwon is sincere about second place, “The foundation for Lim Jeong-ho’s victory, concentration is the decisive factor”

 NC Dinos coach Kang In-kwon recently said, “I was only focusing on the bottom of the rankings, and before I knew it, I was getting closer to second place.” I was paying more attention to the close battle for rankings from 3rd to 5th place, but as I continued to accumulate wins, 2nd place KT was also within sight.

On the 13th, they played against KT in Changwon, aiming to overturn second place, but failed to achieve their goal as they lost 2-6. But now NC and coach Kang In-kwon are serious about second place. By playing baseball with determination, he overturned a game that was likely to be a loss and led the team to a huge victory.

NC won 8-1 in the game against Samsung Lions held at NC Park in Changwon on the 15th. The gap with second place KT was narrowed to 0.5 games again. It was a batting lineup that was dragged early against Samsung ace David Buchanan, but Kim Joo-won’s sacrifice fly in the 5th inning, when they were down 0-1, tied the game. In the 6th inning, Kwon Hee-dong’s comeback hit made it 2-1. 

And in the 8th inning, with 1 out and runners on 1st and 3rd base with a 2-1 lead, Kwon Hee-dong’s squeeze bunt gave them an extra point, and then Seo Ho-cheol’s infield hit and Kim Joo-won’s grand slam added a whopping 6 points, putting a wedge in the game. Thanks to the concentration of the batting line, we caught the game in which the opponent’s ace appeared.

In addition, Lee Jae-hak, a starting pitcher, appeared as a relief pitcher in the 6th inning. Jae-Hak Lee held Samsung’s main batting lineup to two strikeouts and no runs in one inning. Then, Lim Jeong-ho, who came up from the 7th inning with 1 out and runners on 1st and 2nd base, laid the foundation for a major win by striking out 4 in a row until the 8th inning with 2 outs.온라인카지노

After the game, Manager Kang In-kwon said, “In a critical situation in the 7th inning when Lim Jeong-ho could have taken over the flow of the game, he laid the foundation for victory with a good pitch. In the batting lineup, Kwon Hee-dong’s come-from-behind hit in the 6th inning and the number of runs scored through concentration in the 8th played a decisive role in the victory,” he said. “I would like to thank the fans who came to Changwon NC Park and showed passionate support despite the inclement weather, and hope that tomorrow will be a good day as well.” “I will make sure we can play,” he said of his victory.

NC aims for a winning streak with Ace Peddie as the starting pitcher on the 16th. Samsung’s starting pitcher is Kim Dae-woo.
