LG pitcher Lim Chan-gyu recorded a pleasant first win of the season with a scoreless pitching.
Lim Chan-gyu took the mound as a starting pitcher in Hanwha’s game held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 22nd and pitched 78 pitches in 5 innings, giving up 2 hits, 3 walks and 5 strikeouts.
LG won 3-0. Following Lim Chan-kyu, bullpen Jin Lee Woo-chan, Jin Hae-soo, Jung Woo-young, and Lee Jeong-yong blocked it with no runs. Im Chan-kyu’s first win of the season. Closer Go Woo-seok, who recorded a save the previous day, is prohibited from fighting this week, so Lee Jeong-yong took the mound in the ninth inning and recorded two saves. 메이저놀이터
LG kept its first place with a 4-game winning streak. Lim Chan-gyu tasted victory in 7 months after winning against Hanwha on September 28 last year. It was a starter at the time too.
After the game, Lim Chan-gyu said, “Victory seems to be an area of luck. I thought I would do my best in my role, but today there was a good result.”
When asked what he thought of his role, Lim Chan-gyu said, “Handing over to the bullpen without giving the flow of the game. I wasn’t going to throw 9 innings, so even if I couldn’t fill 5 innings, I did my best with 1 pitch and 1 pitch with the thought that the team would give it to a situation where it was possible to win as much as possible.”
Before the game, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop thought about 80 to 90 pitches, and Lim Chan-gyu played his role better than expected.
He got the lead batter on base in the first and second innings, but kept it without a run. Lim Chan-gyu said, “The wind-up motion was a little out of balance, so I changed it to quick motion from the third inning (even without a runner) and threw it, and there were good results.”
“I made my own decision. If it was like last year, I would have focused on the problem, saying ‘why not’, but today I focused on the solution rather than the problem. I thought about how I could solve it, and today during the set motion The silver ball was good, and the curve was the same, and changing it at the same time was effective.”
There was also a confrontation with Chae Eun-seong (Hanwha), who played together until last year. In the first confrontation in the second inning, he allowed a straight walk, and in the fourth inning, he was treated as a floating ball by the first baseman.
Lim Chan-gyu said, “I was a little embarrassed in the first at-bat. Because I gave up a straight walk. (4 times) I won once, but when I met the opponent, it seemed like a hard hitter. He’s a bit taller,” he said with a laugh.
