SSG Landers is on a 5-game winning streak.
In the second game against Samsung held at Daegu Lions Park on the 12th, I made a fine adjustment to the batting order against left-handed starter Baek Jung-hyun.
The previous day, Choi Jeong, Choi Joo-hwan, and Heredia’s center batting line were changed to Heredia Choi, Jeong, and Choi Joo-hwan.
Only one player has changed. Instead of number 6 right fielder Han Yu-seom, Oh Tae-gon was named in the starting lineup as right fielder number 6.

SSG coach Kim Won-hyeong explained before the game, “Hanyu Island was strong against Baek Jung-hyun. 2 hits in 4 at-bats (3 RBIs, 1 triple). Rather, Oh Tae-gon was not strong against Baek Jung-hyun with 1 hit in 6 at bats.”
Then why did you choose Oh Tae-gon?
This is because the recent flow of Hanyu Island is not good. Hanyu Island has only 3 hits in 20 at-bats in 7 games since the opening. There is no trademark long hit. Against Hanwha on the 9th and against Samsung on the 11th, they were silent for two consecutive games without a hit. In the match against Samsung on the 11th, he was replaced by pinch hitter Kim Kang-min in the 8th inning.
Director Kim Won-hyeong explained the reason for the exclusion of Hanyu Island, saying, “I thought it was time to take a break.”
“No matter how good the opponent’s record with the pitcher is, the current flow is important,” he said.
