‘Reclaiming the top spot,’ manager Yoon Kyung-yup praises the players for their concentration in the sixth inning

LG reclaims the top spot after 14 days with a three-game sweep of Samsung.

LG exploded for 12 hits, including two home runs, in a 9-3 win over Samsung at Jamsil Stadium on Friday. Trailing 1-3, the team scored eight runs on eight hits in the sixth inning to turn the game around.

SSG dropped a 3-7 decision to KT on the same day, falling to 36-1 and 23-2. With the win, LG moved to 37 wins, 2 draws, and 23 losses, with a half-game lead. Back in first place for the first time since June 1.

Kim Hyun-soo hit the go-ahead solo home run in the fourth inning and finished 3-for-4 with two RBIs. Austin went 4-for-3 with a game-tying two-run homer in the sixth inning and three RBIs. Im Chan-kyu pitched five innings of three-run ball and Lee Jung-yong pitched one inning of scoreless relief in the sixth.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Im struggled a bit with the high pitch count, but he did his job as a starter. From the sixth inning on, our bullpen took charge of their innings and didn’t give up any more runs, which was the key to our victory,” said Yeom.

“At the plate, Kim Hyun-soo and Austin’s home runs put the game out of reach, and I want to commend the entire team for their focus in the sixth inning, as well as congratulate Sung-ju Moon on his first home run in a long time.”

Finally, “We were able to win today with the support of many fans. Thank you.” 메이저사이트
