The ‘defending champions’ LG Twins, who are challenging their second consecutive win, won their first game of the year. LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop also expressed satisfaction.

LG won 5-2 in the opening match of the exhibition game against KT of the 2024 Shinhan Sol Bank KBO League held at KT Wiz in Suwon on the 9th.

Even though it was an exhibition game, with 7,537 spectators in attendance, the team won without losing the lead they gained with Austin Dean's solo shot in the second inning.

New foreign pitcher Dietrick Enns took the mound as LG's starting pitcher and recorded 4 hits (1 home run), 8 strikeouts, and 2 runs in 4 innings.

Long-serving foreign pitcher Casey Kelly took the mound as the third pitcher and showed clean pitching with no hits, three strikeouts, and no runs in two innings.

After the game, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop was satisfied, saying, “I prepared for baseball in detail and thinking about baseball this season, and we showed a good performance from the first game.”

“In terms of batting, Austin and Oh Ji-hwan showed good form from the first game. He praised Koo Bon-hyuk, who has advanced to the next level with good batting, raising expectations that he will be able to fill the void left by Kim Min-seong (Lotte Giants).

I also applauded the pitchers who are improving their condition smoothly.

“Ens threw a variety of breaking balls, and except for the cutter miss to Kang Baek-ho (who hit a home run), he pitched effectively,” said Coach Yeom, who commented, “The rest of the players, including Kelly, are also taking the process well. “I think so,” he said with a smile.

He continued, “Thank you to the fans who came to support the exhibition game despite the chilly weather. “It’s an exhibition game, but I think we got off to a good start by winning the first game,” he added. 토토사이트
