LG Twins closer Go Woo-seok preserved the team’s victory.
LG achieved an 8-3 come-from-behind win in the first game of the double header in the 14th game of the season against SSG of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium at 2 p.m. on the 17th. The game was tied 2-3, but resumed after a 70-minute rain stoppage, and LG turned the game around. In the top of the 8th inning, there was a crisis with one out and 2nd and 3rd bases on base, but closer Go Woo-seok took the mound and blocked the game without allowing any runs.
After the game, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Starter Lee Jeong-yi did his job well, overcoming many crises well. He praised the winning team, “(Park) Myung-geun and (the late) Wooseok, who played the best baseball,” adding, “In particular, Wooseok’s 5 outs were unreasonable, but he organized them neatly and praised him as the best player of the day.”
Go Woo-seok said, “It was rainy and the weather was bad, but he is grateful to those who prepared him to play well. “I think I was able to play the game because I prepared well,” he said.
SSG also had a chance in the top of the 8th inning when they were down 2-5. The first batter, Han Yu-seom, hit a hit to right-center, and Choi Joo-hwan walked. Choi Sang-min replaced Han Yu-seom, and Oh Tae-gon replaced Choi Joo-hwan as pinch runners. Seong-Hyun Kim’s sent bunt brought the team to second and third bases with one out. SSG used the pinch hitter card, and Kim Kang-min took the plate instead of Cho Hyeong-woo.스포츠토토
LG brought up Go Woo-seok as the finisher for the fastball. Go Woo-seok struck out Kim Kang-min on a swing and struck out Choo Shin-soo with a fly ball to center field. Go Woo-seok ended the game in the 9th inning by striking out the first batter, Ha Jae-hoon, on a grounder in front of the pitcher, Choi Jeong on a fly ball to the second baseman, and Heredia.
Go Woo-seok said, “We were able to win the game because the fielders scored. (5 outs) The break was long, and I was able to prepare well because they told me in advance that I could go out with 2 outs in the 8th inning, so I had to prepare accordingly. He came up to the mound and spoke with Dongwon Lee first, saying that he would trust only his brother and pitch. He said, “I am grateful that I was able to finish well by giving the ball I wanted to throw to Dongwon Lee, who signed it appropriately.”
He continued, “It rained intermittently and the game was stopped, but I gained strength thanks to the support of many fans. “Thank you,” he said.
