After the second game of the Korean Series held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 8th,

KT coach Lee Kang-cheol and LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop announced Benjamin and Lim Chan-gyu as starters for Game 3, respectively.

Wes Benjamin

For KT, left-handed pitcher Benjamin, who had 15 wins, 6 losses, and an average ERA of 3.54 in 29 regular season games, took on a key role in Game 3.

This is his first appearance in five days since appearing in Game 5 of the playoffs against NC Dinos on the 5th.

Benjamin is on the starting mound every five days in this fall baseball season.

His overall KBO League postseason record, including last year’s semi-playoffs, is 4 games, 1 win, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 3.27.

Benjamin showed off his ‘Grim Reaper’-like appearance against LG this season.

He has 4 wins and no losses in 5 appearances, with an earned run average of 0.84.

Wes Benjamin tightly tied up the left-handed batters that LG is proud of.

Oh Ji-hwan, Hong Chang-ki, and Park Hae-min all had a batting average of just 0.167 (2 hits in 12 at-bats) against Benjamin,

while Kim Hyun-soo’s batting average was 0.182 (2 hits in 11 at-bats).

Moon Bo-kyung had a batting average of 0.100 with 1 hit in 10 at-bats, and Moon Seong-ju had no hits in 7 at-bats.

Players playing in the Korean Series agree that “regular season opponent records do not mean much in short-term games.”

If Benjamin overturns this perception and plays ‘as usual’ against LG, KT’s victory becomes even closer.

In response to this, LG will have Lim Chan-gyu on the starting mound as scheduled.

Lim Chan-gyu

He is an avid LG fan who has supported LG since elementary school and cried, saying, ‘I don’t want to go to school’ when they finished second in the Korean Series in 2002.

Lim Chan-gyu, who calls himself a “successful otaku,” took on the important responsibility of saving LG, which was in crisis.

In the second game, LG’s starter Choi Won-tae gave up 4 runs in ⅓ innings,

leaving the mound without even completing the first inning, and starting the bullpen early.

In Game 2, the bullpen pitchers combined for 8⅔ innings without allowing any runs, but for LG,

the best scenario is for Lim Chan-gyu to last on the mound for as long as possible.

Lim Chan-gyu took the victory every time he came out in a situation where the starting lineup collapsed at the beginning of the season and was on the mound for LG.

He played a decisive role in regaining his strength.

Having had his best year by finishing the regular season with 14 wins, 3 losses, 1 hold, and an ERA of 3.43,

he needs to repeat the comeback performance of May, when he won all 4 games.

This year, he faced KT in the regular season and did not have good results.

He had 4 games, 1 win, 1 loss, 1 hold, and an ERA of 6.61.

In the KT batting lineup, Kim Min-hyuk, Kim Sang-soo (batting average of 0.571),

Hwang Jae-gyun (batting average of 0.500) showed a strong performance against Chan-gyu Lim.

However, Lim Chan-gyu did not give up a single home run to KT batters.

SSG Lander Kim Gwang-hyun, 7 Scoreless Innings

SSG Kim Gwang-hyun, 7 scoreless innings… ‘Samsung transfer’ Widener 6⅔innings 4 runs

SSG Landers

SSG Landers ended the week with a winning streak amidst ace Kim Gwang-hyun’s counterattack.

Taylor Widener, who joined the Samsung Lions after being released from the NC Dinos,

suffered a yoke of defeat in his first appearance after transferring.

SSG defeated Samsung 4-0 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game

held at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 13th.

SSG, who had a come-from-behind defeat to Samsung 4-5 on the 11th, won a 3-2 finish victory on the 12th,

also won a rare victory that day. 토토사이트

SSG starter Kim Kwang-hyun blocked 7 innings with 3 hits and no runs, and added a victory (7 wins, 4 losses)

in 4 games since the LG Twins on July 21st.

Kim Gwang-hyun

Kim Gwang-hyun, who blocked the first inning with a tripartite throw, got a right-handed hit by Oh Jae-il in the second out, second base,

but right fielder Choi Ji-hoon caught Min-ho Kang, who was digging home with an accurate throw, and overcame the risk of conceding a run.

After that, he filled 7 innings without any crisis.

First Inning

After one out in the bottom of the first inning, SSG lost a chance to score when Choi Ji-hoon sent a ball to the right fielder,

ran to third base, and died sideways.

However, the veterans changed the mood.

With no runners out in the first inning, Kim Kang-min hit a double to the right fielder,

Choi Jeong made the first run with a right-handed hit at the right time.

Second Inning

In the second inning, Kim Seong-hyun and Hanyu-seom made the 1st and 3rd base safe with consecutive hits,

Kim Seong-hyun stepped on the groove and scored an extra point when Oh Tae-gon played a double hit in front of the shortstop.

SSG stole second base after Oh Tae-gon went on base with a right-handed hit in the 5th inning,

and added one point with Choo Shin-soo’s sacrifice fly to center fielder following Kim Min-shik’s sacrifice bunt.

7th Inning

In the 7th inning, Oh Tae-gon went to base with a left-handed hit and succeeded in stealing the base,

Choo Shin-soo hit right-handed at the right time at second base, making it 4-0.

On the other hand, Widener gave up 10 hits and allowed 4 runs in 6⅔ innings, and tasted bitterness in the ‘Samsung debut match’.

Including the results during NC, it is the third loss (four wins) of the season.

Samsung could not overcome the bad news that shortstop Lee Jae-hyun was replaced due to a dislocated shoulder

during defense in the bottom of the second inning, and the game ended without scoring.

Oh Jae-il was the 65th player in the history of the KBO League to reach 2,000 hits, but he couldn’t laugh at the team’s defeat.
