An iron wall, that is.
One of LG’s strongest weapons in baseball is its bullpen. It has led the league in this category for the past two years. Closers 토토사이트 Ko Woo-seok, Jung Woo-young, and Lee Jung-yong have been solid in the middle. Once they get going, it’s hard for them to lose. There were signs of trouble early in the season. Go Woo-seok started late due to injury, while Jung Woo-young and Lee Jung-yong suffered from poor form. Still, the back door was not easily opened. The gums were as tight as ever. A new must-win card was added.
At the center is Ham Deok-ju. He played a key role on the mound for Doosan. Before the 2021 season, he made a surprise move to ‘Jamsil rival’ LG. Since then, he’s been plagued by injuries, big and small. This year, he found his groove. He is on track for a career-high season with four wins, four saves, 15 holds, and a 1.50 ERA in 55 games. He’s one of the most prolific pitchers in the league, but he doesn’t show any signs of fatigue. He’s been consistent since the beginning of the season. He hasn’t allowed an earned run in his last nine games.
We also have a new face. Rookie Park Myung-geun is a prime example. He’s a sidearm pitcher who throws the ball around 150 kilometers per hour. At the tender age of 19, he has caught the eye with his bold game management and mentality. In 40 games, he has a 4-1 record, five saves, five holds, and a 3.69 ERA. The development of Baek Seung-hyun and Yoo Young-chan has also been remarkable. Seung-hyun Paik and Young-chan Baek each posted a 1-0 record with one save and a 1.33 ERA in 21 games, and a 3.00 ERA in 45 games with five wins and eight saves. They don’t have a lot of experience, but they have a lot of heart.
They are the best in both quantity and quality. Their sweat is everywhere. Not only have they been the catalyst for 32 come-from-behind wins (1st), but they’ve also picked up the slack for a sometimes shaky starting rotation. The LG bullpen has a 3.16 ERA (1st), while the starters are 6th with a 4.02 ERA. Minimizing variables goes without saying. Go Woo-seok and Jeong Woo-young are scheduled to be called up for the Hangzhou Asian Games (AG) in September, but the team is not worried because it has a thick player base. LG won’t stop until they win the Korean Series (KS).
