The 3 consecutive fights were also perfect. SSG Landers closer pitcher Seo Jin-yong closed the back door perfectly.
SSG won a 3-2 come-from-behind victory against Kiwoom Heroes at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 22nd. It’s the last 3 wins. Behind the three consecutive victories was the performance of finisher Seo Jin-yong.
Seo Jin-yong had three consecutive fights including this day. It was on the mound throughout the winning streak. He recorded an inning save against KT on the 20th, an inning save against Kiwoom on the 21st, and an inning save against Kiwoom on the 22nd. Unfortunately, the save condition was created within 3 points throughout the winning streak, and coach Kim Won-hyung did not hesitate to put finisher Seo Jin-yong on the mound.토토사이트
He was 3 fights but no jitters. Seo Jin-yong, who had not allowed a single runner on the previous two days with a perfect one inning, quickly warmed up and allowed Kim Tae-jin, the first batter, to hit in the game on the 22nd. In particular, the highlight of the day was the scene where he strikes out on a three-pitch swing against Lim Byung-wook, the last hitter who has a good feeling recently.
Seo Jin-yong, who added 3 saves in 3 games, has already recorded 8 saves for the season and firmly secured the top spot in the league in this category. After the match, coach Kim Won-hyeong said, “Jin Yong-yi had three consecutive fights today, and for the team, he continues to block the game well even in difficult situations. I want to commend him.”
SSG had a lot of worries even at the beginning of the season. It is because the position of the finishing pitcher is not certain. I already went through a big hurdle last year. Taek-hyung Kim started as the finisher at the beginning of the season, but was moved due to injury, and Jin-yong Seo took over as the finisher again, but as his number of blown saves increased due to his first ball game, he came out in a more comfortable situation. Afterwards, Noh Kyung-eun and Moon Seung-won were in charge of finishing, but in the end, they could not find the perfect answer.
Director Kim Won-hyung, who consistently gave an ‘open answer’ whenever he was asked about the finishing position during this year’s spring camp, eventually trusted Seo Jin-yong once again. In other words, expectations were placed on the pitcher with the most finishing experience on the team.
There was even a talk from the outside about whether it would be better to have a foreign pitcher as the closer. It was a story that came out with a lot of starting resources and few bullpen resources. Most of them were half-joking and half-serious, but realistically, that wasn’t easy either.
Seo Jin-yong, who prepared as an incisor referee this season, is showing the effect with his own eyes. It is a pace comparable to the’Career High’ in the 2019 season, when he recorded 1 win, 8 saves, and an average ERA of 0.33 hold in 9 games. Seo Jin-yong, who recorded his first 21 saves last year, is definitely starting off differently from last year.
