LG changed the first team entry on this day. Infielder Son Ho-young returned to the 1st team, and pitcher Lee Ji-gang went down to the 2nd team. Shortstop Oh Ji-hwan is scheduled to be excluded from the starting lineup until this week due to a residual thigh muscle injury, so the infielder is reinforced. Son Ho-young will start as a shortstop that day.
Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “Ho-young is going to start today. (Yesterday’s shortstop) Jung Joo-hyun has a cramp in his left leg. He had a career before hitting a home run yesterday.” “he said.
Jung Joo-hyun started as a shortstop the day before and played full-time until the 12th inning. In the 12th inning of overtime, Moon Bo-kyung hit a solo home run, then fired a two-run home run that went over the wall in the middle left from 2nd and 2nd base. It was a 7-4 victory wedge shot. Manager Yeom said, “Jung Ju-hyeon’s home run hit a wedge.”
It was a meaningful home run for Jung Joo-hyun as well. Jung Joo-hyun, who could not play a single game in the first team last year, was the first home run recorded in two years and two months after the SSG match on June 22, 2021. He recorded it in 922 days by date.
Jung Joo-Hyun hit a home run and ran around the bases, his eyes reddening, and he circled the ground at a slower pace than usual. He had a muscle cramp before the 12th inning that prevented him from running fast.
Jung Joo-Hyun made a mistake by missing Choi Ji-Hoon’s ground ball after one out in the defense at the end of the 10th inning.
Jung Joo-Hyun participated in 57 games this season, recording a batting average of .255, 1 home run, 11 RBIs and 10 runs.
