Baseball team coach Lee Kang-cheol applauded the fielder who scored 19 hits after winning the second practice game in preparation for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), while allowing 6 runs. One pitching staff said he needed more time to get back on track.
On the 19th (local time), the Korean national baseball team led by coach Lee Kang-cheol won 11-6 with 19 hits in a practice game against the KIA Tigers at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
The national team, which won the first practice game against the NC Dinos on the 16th, 8-2, added another victory by showing a good sense of hitting against KIA’s 1.5 group, which lacked key players that day.
As shown in the score, the attack power was good, but the mound power was not perfect. It was due to complex factors such as the fact that he was not in 100% condition at the time and the problem of adapting to the official ball.
Among the pitchers who pitched that day, 토토사이트 only Kwak Bin (Doosan Bears) and So Joon So (KT Wiz) showed a stable appearance. Starting pitchers Koo Chang-mo (NC Dinos), Lee Eui-ri (KIA Tigers), Won Tae-in (Samsung Lions), and Jung Woo-young (LG Twins) were unable to throw their own pitches.
Director Lee Kang-cheol also pointed out this point. Coach Lee, who met with reporters after the game, said, “I hope the fielders are in good condition. I understand that the pitcher is still in the early stages, but I see some players who are coming up late. I think I need to prepare well for the next game.”
He continued, “(On the 27th), until the last practice game against the LG Twins in Tucson, the pitchers’ condition must be on the right track to play SSG Landers in Korea (March 3) and Orix Buffaloes and Hanshin Tigers in Japan (March 6-7). I can deal with Japan normally,” he emphasized. “7 to 8 cards that can run the game must be raised.”
However, “There is a problem with the official ball, but there are many pitchers who have started their first game now. It is not easy to judge them now because they have only done live pitching once or twice.” I am very grateful for raising the pace to the extent that the game is possible.”
Regarding the batting line that scored 11 points that day, he expressed satisfaction, saying, “It is good for the batter’s condition to come up in advance as it is now, so that it can be adjusted later.” seemed
He was satisfied with Kim Hye-seong, who made a big success by hitting 2 hits, 3 doubles, and 5 triples in turn that day, but when major leaguers such as Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) and Tommy Hyeon-soo Edman (St. Louis Cardinals) joined, he acted as a backup. He made it clear that he had no choice but to go.
Coach Lee said, “If Kim Ha-seong and Edmon join (Kim Hye-seong, Oh Ji-hwan, etc.), the time for infield players to play will inevitably be reduced.” are doing,” he said.
Coach Lee also praised Edmon’s condition, saying, “I don’t know if he’s broadcasting (Major League exhibition game), but I know everything about him before.” did.
Regarding the batting order, he said, “I want to use all of the hitters because they are in good condition now. If (Kim) Ha-seong and Edmon come, (Choi) Jeong or these players may move to the lower batting order, but we are discussing a lot with the coaches.” told
