The LG Twins will face the Kiwoom Heroes in Game 15 of the season at Jamsil Stadium on the 13th. 스포츠토토 LG won Kiwoom on the 11th and 12th, leading with 10 wins, 1 draw, and 3 losses.
LG will face its former teammate as a starting pitcher for Kiwoom on the same day. Rookie pitcher Kim Dong-kyu, who left LG in a Choi Won-tae trade at the end of July, will face LG in a Kiwoom uniform. It is the first time for Kim Dong-kyu to take the mound at Jamsil Stadium. It’s a tough match against my old team.
LG has recently won four consecutive games. The batters scored 7-6-5-8 points. The upper and lower batting order is going off in rotation. Moon Bo-kyung and Kim Hyun-soo hit home runs on the 11th, and Austin fired a 135m large home run on the 12th.
Hong Chang-ki right fielder, Shin Min-jae second baseman, Kim Hyun-soo nominated hitter, Austin first baseman, Oh Ji-hwan shortstop, Moon Bo-kyung third baseman, Park Dong-won catcher, Lee Jae-won left fielder, and Park Hae-min center fielder will start the lineup. It’s the same as the previous day’s game.
The key point to watch is how good the fastball command will be at a high RBI with a height of 195cm. Attention is focusing on if a pitching and hitting match between Kim Dong-kyu of 195cm and Lee Jae-won of Jamsil Big Boy of 192cm takes place.
Kim Dong-kyu, who joined LG in the second round of the 2023 Rookie Draft 17th overall), had three wins, five losses, and a 4.08 ERA in nine games 39⅔ innings in the Futures League before the trade. He pitched only one game in the first division and scored three walks and two runs one earned in ⅓ innings against Hanwha in Daejeon on June 10.
Kim Dong-kyu made two Futures League appearances after being traded to Kiwoom. He started the game against SSG’s second division on the 4th and pitched well with four hits, one walk, three strikeouts and no runs in five innings. His fastball speed reached 147 kilometers.
In the game against Lotte’s second division on the 9th, he was sluggish with two hits, three walks and three runs two earned runs in ⅓ innings. Head coach Hong Won-ki said, Before taking the mound at the time, he notified the starting pitcher against LG on the 13th and made them throw only short innings. I was nervous that day, but the result was a little bad, he said. He threw 27 pitches and started after three days off.
Head coach Hong Won-ki said of rookie Kim Dong-kyu’s starting debut against his former team, It may be a little cruel, but as a young player, it will be a little burdensome. However, if such a fearful feeling turns into confidence, the energy is large and enormous, he expected slightly.
Meanwhile, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said in a press briefing before the game, I think he is a pitcher who can consistently throw more than 150 kilometers in the future, but I had a plan to foster him this winter. I was going to raise my weight and raise it as a starting pitcher, but Kiwoom took it.
