LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yup, whose team is two games away from winning its first Korean Series title in 29 years with dramatic victories in two consecutive games, predicted an all-out bullpen battle in Game 4.”It was difficult because we didn’t play good baseball and allowed the reverse, but Oh Ji-hwan hit a game-winning three-run homer in the last inning and Lee Jung-yong did a good job in the closer’s role to win the game,” Yeom said at an official press conference after the Twins defeated KT Wiz 8-7 in Game 3 of the Korean Series at Katie Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, on Tuesday. Oh Ji-hwan, who made an error in the fifth inning that led to a number of runs, hit a game-winning three-run homer with runners on second and third in the top of the ninth inning when the score was 5-7. Lee Jung-yong came on in relief with runners on first and second in the bottom of the ninth and intentionally walked Bae Jae-dae to load the bases, but Kim Sang-soo cooked a pitcher-to-catcher-to-first baseman double play to secure the dramatic save.Yeom said he was torn between Go Woo-seok and Lee Jung-yong to pitch the eighth inning, and decided to send Go Woo-seok up first to break the link to KT’s center field.

However, Yeom pointed out that “Go Woo-seok’s delivery wasn’t bad, but he struggled because his pitches weren’t accurate .”However, Lee Jeong-yong pitched a scoreless inning and ended the game on a good note, so he expressed his unwavering trust that Go Woo-seok would improve .After mobilizing seven bullpen pitchers to secure the win in the second game, Yeom did the same today, using seven pitchers in turn to keep KT’s lead to one run.” The important thing is that we managed the pitch count well,” Yeom said. “It might be too much for Yoo to throw two innings tomorrow for the second game in a row, but other than that, I don’t have a problem with the other pitchers going all out tomorrow. Yoo Young-chan will also be able to throw one inning 바카라사이트 if the situation arises,” predicting a bullpen ‘volume offense’ for the third consecutive game.
