Go Woo-seok (LG Twins) pitched 1⅔ innings of scoreless relief and struck out two in game one of a doubleheader against the SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Sunday.
Leading 5-3 in the top of the eighth inning, Kim gave up a single to Han Yoo-seom and a walk to Choi Joo-hwan. Kim Sung-hyun followed with a sacrifice bunt to put runners on first and second.
With the bases loaded, LG sent Go Woo-seok to the mound. Go opted for a four-seam fastball against pinch-hitter Kim Kang-min. The first pitch was out of the zone, but the second was in the zone. He induced swings and misses on pitches three and four. He then got Shin-Soo Choo to fly out to center field at 3B1S to end the threat. He threw only four-seam fastballs to both Kim Kang-min and Choo Shin-soo.
After surviving the crisis, the LG bats added three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to seal the game. In the top of the ninth, Go Woo-seok mixed up his pitches and cooked three batters. He got Ha Jae-hoon to ground out to the pitcher, Choi Jung to fly out to second base, and Guillermo Heredia to strike out to end the game.메이저사이트
It was Ko’s second five-out save of the season. He once again pitched 1⅔ innings to preserve his team’s win against the KT Wiz in Suwon on May 5.
The game was suspended due to heavy rain during LG’s sixth inning offense. The game resumed 70 minutes later. After the game, Ko Woo-seok said, “First of all, I’d like to thank the team for preparing for a good game despite the rain and bad weather. I think I was able to play well because of their preparation.”
“I was able to win the game because my beast brothers scored runs. (The five-out save) was a long break, and I was told in advance that I could go out with two outs in the eighth inning, so I was able to prepare well,” he said. “When I got on the mound, I talked to (Park) Dong-won first, and I told him that I would only trust him and throw the ball I wanted to throw. I’m grateful that Dong-won was able to finish the game well by giving me the ball I wanted to throw and signing it properly.”
Finally, he said, “It rained in the middle of the game and the game was stopped, but I was encouraged by the support of many fans. Thank you.”
