The LG Twins knelt 1-3 in a home game against the NC Dinos in the 2023 Professional Baseball KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 4th.

On this day, LG gave Kim Joo-won two RBIs and a timely hit to the left at the beginning of the second inning, and allowed Martin to also allow one RBI and a timely hit to the left at the end of the third inning, giving the atmosphere the beginning of the game. To make matters worse, the batting line was tied to opposing starting pitcher Lee Jae-hak, and not a single runner was able to get on base until the end of the 3rd inning. It wasn’t until the bottom of the 4th inning that Moon Seong-joo survived on first base, taking advantage of an error by the opponent’s infielder, but was unable to hit home due to a misfire on the follow-up.

LG, who was unraveling the game in such a frustrating situation, had a golden chance at the bottom of the 6th inning. Leading batter Heo Do-hwan hit a heavy hit, then took advantage of Lee Jae-hak’s wild pitch to settle down at second base and open up water. Following this, Shin Min-jae, who was quick-witted, also succeeded in bunt hits, leading to 1st and 3rd base safely. At bat, Park Hae-min boasted a good sense of hitting with 2 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats in the NC game the previous day (3rd). Depending on the situation, it was a scene worth looking forward to even mass scoring.

Driven by a ball count of 1 ball and 2 strikes, Park Hae-min pulled Lee Jae-hak’s 4-ball, 142km fastball, and hit it well. However, the ball was sucked into the glove of NC first baseman Do Tae-hoon, and Do Tae-hoon quickly stepped on the first base. It was the moment when even Shin Min-jae, who had not returned to first base, was out. In addition, the follow-up hitter Moon Seong-joo also turned to the center field fly, ending the inning in vain.

Afterwards, LG made up for one point at the end of the 7th inning with Hong Chang-ki’s walk, Austin Dean’s 4 ball, and Kim Hyun-soo’s grounder RBI at 1 out 2 and 3 base made of foil from the opponent’s battery, but there was no further reversal. That’s how LG had to face a bitter defeat.

Like this, LG was unable to score due to misfortune overlapping in the golden opportunity of safe 1st and 3rd base at the end of the 6th inning. The results were so painful. With the defeat on this day, LG gave up all three consecutive matches against NC.

It is the first time in 1816 days since the three consecutive matches that took place in Masan on June 12-14, 2018, that LG suffered a sweep loss in three consecutive matches against NC. If you narrow the scope to the series that took place in Jamsil, it has been 2191 days since the 3 consecutive matches from June 2nd to June 4th, 2017.

In addition, LG, who took the 20th loss (32 wins, 1 draw), ended the week with a bad record of 2 wins and 4 losses.
