No. 1 ahead by 9G, blown away by ‘opponent’… A nightmare 4 years ago when 1G was desperately needed, ‘extreme anger’ at foreign colds was natural.

LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop took out a memory four years ago on the 30th. It was a nightmare memory.

For Yeom, 2019 remains a scar. 메이저놀이터 Yeom, who was the head coach of the SK Wyverns (currently SSG Landers), gave up the top spot in the regular season as he was caught by Doosan, who was ahead by nine games until mid-August. He tied in the final match and ended the season in second place, trailing his opponent’s record. Since then, if it is tied, the ranking will be set as a tiebreak, but coach Yeom at the time will remember the importance of winning one game to the bone.

Adam Plutko was the starting pitcher against Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 30th. However, Choi Won-tae, who started as a starting pitcher on the 29th, was recruited through a trade. Plutco recently complained of cold body aches and failed to train. Plutko’s appearance was pushed back to the game against Kiwoom Heroes in Jamsil on August 2.

Plutko is playing the starting ace with 11 wins, 2 losses and a 2.33 ERA in 18 games this season.

Coach Yeom did not hide his discomfort at the news of Plutco’s cold body aches, saying, “Now, if I catch a cold body, I will give the best penalty.”

Coach Yeom said, “We can create a team crisis. Our ranking could go down a notch, and we could ruin a season. That’s baseball. One small thing can ruin a season. “I’ve seen so many things like that,” he said. “If (Choi) Won-tae didn’t come, who should go on the mound?” The second-tier pitcher has to go up. Then, if you lose and lose consecutive games (cold body aches), it will have a huge impact on the team,” he said.

Coach Yeom continued, “The responsibility of a professional player is not only good at baseball. It is also important to take good care of yourself. “Even if I don’t move well, I wear a jumper when I’m exposed to the air conditioner to avoid catching a cold,” he said adding, “It’s the basics of a professional player.”

Coach Yeom said, “Fortunately, Won-tae came and hit the spot and moved on without any problems. “If Won-tae didn’t come, there could have been a huge crisis,” he said adding, “The winning and losing rankings are not five to six games apart, but one game difference can have a big impact on the ranking competition later on.” The tiebreak was also made because of me,” he said.

No. 1 LG is 2.5 games away from No. 2 SSG Landers. For Yeom, who even failed to win a nine-game reversal, the 2.5 game difference is not a reassuring difference.

Choi Won-tae pitched six scoreless innings against Doosan on the 30th. He made his LG debut by filling the Flutco gap perfectly.

Although the crisis has passed, coach Yeom hoped that the team will not miss the tension until the end. Coach Yeom said, “The main player should have a greater sense of jack. “It is also important to take care of your body, not to be responsible for playing baseball well,” he stressed.
