Director Kim Won-hyeong “Elias’s best pitching, praise Choi Jeong’s last defense

After two outs at the end of the 8th inning, SSG Landers escaped from a 5-game losing streak by scoring the winning run with an opponent’s wildfire. 

SSG won 2-1 in the home game against LG at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 20th. With this, he escaped from the five-game losing streak that started with Sajik Lotte Giants on the 15th. However, SSG, which lost second place to KT Wiz the previous day, was also unable to regain second place as KT beat Hanwha 3-0.  

After two outs at the end of the 8th inning, SSG went on base with a hit ball from pitcher Go Woo-seok, who had changed his mind, on the first and third base chances created by Kang Jin-seong and Hanyu-seom’s consecutive hits. And with Kang-Min Kim as a pinch hitter, Woo-Seok Koh, who finished LG, scored the final goal. 

SSG was declared safe at first base when Austin Dean grounded in front of third baseman at second out and third base at the end of the ninth inning. Third base runner Shin Min-jae stepped on the home plate. However, after SSG’s video review request, it was corrected as an out, and the game ended as it was. 메이저놀이터

Elias, who has been somewhat uneasy lately, threw 104 pitches in 8 innings, giving up 4 hits and 1 run. Season 6 win. His season ERA was lowered from 4.10 to 3.79. Finisher Seo Jin-yong earned his 32nd save of the season. On the other line, Kang Jin-seong got on base 100% with 3 hits and 1 walk in 3 at-bats. 

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung praised Elias, saying, “Today, Elias showed the best pitching. It would have been a burden in the team’s losing streak, but with aggressive pitching, he prevented long innings with minimal runs.” “The fielders also liked the process of making the winning run in the 8th inning, and I especially want to praise Choi Jeong’s concentration on defense at the end. It must have been mentally difficult for all the players due to the long losing streak, but they overcame it well. During the week, they suffered a lot,” he said.
