Although there was only one hit, it was significant for both the team and the player as it came at the most crucial moment. The LG Twins’ Moon Sung-joo, who had the bases loaded with two outs, helped his team win the game.

LG improved to 65-2, 38 (.631) with a 3-1 win in the 12th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Lotte Giants at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on Thursday.

Moon Sung-ju, who started in left field as the No. 8 hitter, went 1-for-4 with two RBIs. 온라인카지노 After striking out in his first at-bat, he took a fastball from Lotte starter Charlie Barnes up the middle with two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning to give his team a 1-0 lead, and in the meantime, third baseman Austin Dean and second baseman Moon Bo-kyung came home to complete the big inning. Given the starting matchup between Casey Kelly and Barnes, it was a huge boost for LG.

“In my first at-bat, I was thinking of a changeup, but a fastball came in and it didn’t work out,” Moon said after the game, adding, “When I was up to bat for the second time, I saw (Barnes) shaking his head with confidence, so I thought I’d go for a fastball like I did in my first at-bat, so I aimed for a fastball and got a hit.”

“It could have been tough if the game was tied at one, but it feels good to get a hit with the bases loaded and the game tied,” Moon said with a smile.

Due to rain during the three-game midweek series, only one or two games were played at the four venues except Gocheok Sky Dome. In the case of the Lotte-LG game in Jamsil, the 22nd and 23rd games were canceled due to rain, and only the 24th game started. While it wasn’t a bad idea to rest and build up stamina, it wasn’t a welcome break for LG, which is on the rise.

“I hadn’t batted outdoors since Saturday (19th) due to rain, so I felt awkward during batting practice today (24th), but I tried to focus as much as possible. I tried to maintain my batting feel indoors as well,” she reflected.

This season, Moon has consistently maintained a high batting average of over 30%, leading the team’s upward trend, and has already booked a career-high season. The fans’ excitement for him has only grown over time. “I want to thank the fans for coming to the ballpark today, and it feels good to be able to repay them with a win,” Moon said.
