“I think the lineup will average about 35 years old”…’Bullpen overload’ SSG, 39-year-old No-Kyung waits to start third straight game

The SSG Landers will face the LG Twins on April 19 at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. SSG is coming off a 4-8 upset loss to LG in 12 extra innings the day before, their fourth straight loss.

SSG remains in second place, one game behind third-place KT. SSG will start ace Kim Kwang-hyun to try and snap the losing streak. He is 7-4 with a 3.40 ERA in 19 games this season.

Manager Kim Won-hyung revealed in the pregame press briefing that he will be without three pitchers from his bullpen. Here’s what he had to say

-You have a lot of players in the bullpen who have pitched a lot, what is your availability today?

“Hyo-joon Ko is not available because of his pitch count. Lee has pitched three straight games, and Choi Min-jun is also not available today. Noh Kyung-eun has pitched back-to-back games, but she will be on the bench today.” (Noh Kyung-eun, who has pitched back-to-back games, will be on the bench for the third straight game.)

-On what he didn’t like about yesterday’s game.

“A lot of things. I was disappointed with (Moon Seung-won’s) walk in the seventh inning. Hyo-joon Ko’s walk after the second inning, the error after the run… (SSG had three walks in the seventh inning).”

-Han Yoo-seom, on keeping Han in the game after the error.

“He’s going to have a lot on his mind after making a mistake, and I wanted him to take care of it (at the plate).”

-On how he plans to approach his two losses to Lim Chan-kyu.

“It’s a bad time for players. Their confidence is down, but in times like this, I want them to hit aggressively. It’s not easy to respond to two strikes. I want them to come up to bat with a lot of confidence and be aggressive.”

-McCarty on throwing well.

“McCarty continues to pitch so well right now. He’s striking out a lot and he’s pitching aggressively…He should have gone seven innings (laughs), but he’s got a good tempo. He’s similar to Kim Kwang-hyun.”

-Did the lineup change much? 카지노사이트

“Kim Kang-min came in. Choo Shin-soo, Kim Kang-min, Choi Jung, Choi Joo-hwan, Park Sung-hwan, Kang Jin-sung, Han Yoo-seom, Choi Ji-hoon, and Lee Jae-won.”

-The average age seems high.

“It will be high. Younger players are Park Sung, Choi Ji-hoon. There are two 20-somethings. I think the average age will be 35.”
