7G including this week’s doubleheader “It’s not time to overdo it yet—think about the total war when 10G is left”

We are facing the toughest schedule in the last half of the season. With the end of the regular season just around the corner, every game is crucial, but given the schedule, it’s hard to envision an all-out war. LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop talked about the team’s mound operations for the seven games, including this week’s doubleheader.

“The most important thing at this point is to keep the pitchers focused on the game and not overwork them,” said Yoon, who will take the mound against KT Suwon on Friday. We have a lot of games this week with seven games, and we have to play next week as well. If we push them too hard, it will damage the next game, so we will try to keep the basics as much as possible this week.”메이저놀이터

LG will play a three-game series against KT in Suwon this week before traveling to Gwangju for four games in three days. After facing KIA in Gwangju on the 8th, they will play a doubleheader against KIA at the same venue on the 9th, and then play the final game of the four-game series in Gwangju on the 10th.

Coach Yeom said, “It’s not time to push ourselves yet. “If we don’t push ourselves too hard, we’ll be able to give it our all if we need to win the last 10 games. If we try too hard now, we might not be able to win the game when we really need to win the game,” he said, indicating that he won’t be using his starting pitchers or bullpen early.

In the end, the starting pitchers are important. Starting pitcher Choi Won-tae will pitch in two games this week, today and on April 10, and will be paired with Heo Do-hwan in both games.

LG’s lineup is Hong Chang-ki (right fielder), Shin Min-jae (second baseman), Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter), Austin Dean (first baseman), Moon Bo-kyung (third baseman), Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop), Heo Do-hwan (catcher), Moon Sung-joo (left fielder), and Park Hae-min (center fielder).

“Won-tae will continue to bat with Do-hwan on Sunday,” Yeom said. “I put Do-hwan in the seventh spot in the batting order because I don’t want to shake up the existing lineup. We may use (Park) Dong-won as a pinch-hitter later in the game.”

The starting lineup remains unchanged from last week’s plan. Choi Won-tae, Casey Kelly, Lee Jeong-yong, Kim Yun-sik, Lim Chan-kyu, Son Ju-young, and Choi Won-tae. Son Ju-young will start the second game of the doubleheader. Yoon said, “There are reports from the second team that (Lee) Min-ho is fine. We’ll see how Joo-young looks and decide between him and Min-ho as the starting pitcher against SSG next week.”

Ham Deok-ju, who was left off the roster on the 29th of last month, will be given more time. “He threw on five days’ rest, but there’s still some discomfort. So I’ll give him more rest and then call him up. He’ll play in the second team and then I’ll call him to the first team.”
