After taking the mound as a relief pitcher and striking out Jung Hyun in the bottom of the eighth inning, he allowed consecutive walks and allowed NC Kim Han-byul a two-run triple. Of the 22 pitches, 11 were strikes and 11 were walks.

However, regarding Lim Jung-woo, who took the mound for the first time in four years, LG manager Ryu Ji-hyun said, “I heard Lim Jung-woo came out after four years. The result was not good, but striking out the first batter means he has the ability, he said. “It was impressive that he threw his ball to the first batter even though he had a four-year gap.” Lim Jung-woo pitched one inning without losing a point in an exhibition game against KT at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 12th. Head coach Ryu Ji-hyun expressed expectations, saying, “I think the game’s physical strength to throw his ball will improve even if the number of pitches exceeds 10 and 20 as the game continues.”
