As soon as LG Lim Chan-kyu, who started the DH Game 2 against SSG Han Yu-seom, showed off his best batting performance with three hits and one walk in three at-bats in the first game of DH, hit the body, the center and catcher approached the batter in case they didn’t know.
Jamsil Stadium on the 17th, when the doubleheader game between the LG Twins and SSG Landers was held. Lim Chan-kyu, a starter who took the mound as a starting pitcher in Game 2 of the doubleheader, struggled from the first inning.
After one out in the first inning, SSG Choi Joo-hwan and Choi Jung hit consecutive hits, and Han Yu-seom, who played a three-hit game in the first round of DH, hit a timely hit from the first at-bat and allowed the first run. Lim Chan-kyu, who finished the inning with the minimum run by striking out Ha Jae-hoon and Kim Sung-hyun in the ensuing one-out bases-loaded crisis, looked disappointed.
Lim Chan-kyu, who had a double by Choi Jung after one out in the third inning, chose a first-pitch body fastball in the match against Han Yu Island. The ball that dug too deep into the 139km body hit Han Yu-seom’s body. 토토
Han Yu-seom, who showed off his peak batting performance throughout the previous at-bat timely hit and doubleheader game, was immediately struck by the ball hit by the body. Catcher Heo Do-hwan and the referee approached the batter in case they didn’t know, but Han Yu-seom relaxed his protective equipment while enduring the pain.
Lee Dae-jung, a member of the committee who was in charge of commentary on the day, said, “From the batter’s point of view, when the batting is good, it sometimes becomes sensitive when it hits the body. (Hanyu Island) He had such a good batting sense that he induced a fast ball on the high side of his body from the first pitch, but it was deep,” he said, explaining the scene at the time.
Although there was no intention, Lim Chan-kyu, who came down from the mound, approached Han Yu-seom, who walked out to first base. When his eyes met with Han Yu-seom, Lim Chan-kyu took off his hat and expressed his regret, saying that he was unintentional. Han Yu-seom’s heart, who had a sudden anger at his brother’s apology, quickly melted.
Han Yu-seom, who visited him in person and playfully pushed his younger brother’s forearm, who said sorry twice and three times, ended the situation without misunderstanding.
Lim Chan-kyu, who had a good happening against Han Yu-seom in the third inning, gave Ha Jae-hoon a timely hit in the ensuing one-out bases-loaded crisis, but finished the inning by grounding follow-up batters Kim Sung-hyun and Ahn Sang-hyun.
Amid starter Lim Chan-kyu’s good pitching, which did not fall apart, LG scored seven points in the third and fourth innings alone, presenting Lim Chan-kyu with the starting win.
Lim Chan-kyu, who won 11 games of the season with two earned runs in five innings, said in an interview with Soo Hoon after the game, “I had to pitch without discipline, but I’m sorry. Thank you to all the fans for supporting the doubleheader for a long time. Still, I’m glad I made you happy on your way home after winning,” he said, expressing his gratitude to the fans.
