“It’s time for our players to win a championship.”
LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yeop met with reporters on Monday after the team’s ninth game of the season against the SSG Landers was rained out at SSG Landers Field in Incheon.
Looking back at the game on the 28th, where the team won an 8-6 upset victory, Coach Yeom thanked the players, saying, “We had a big game yesterday.” He added, “It’s time.
“It’s about time,” he said. He’s talking about LG’s title run. For the past four consecutive seasons, LG has played fall baseball consistently, but not all the way.바카라
Last year, they posted the highest winning percentage in franchise history, but fell just short to SSG, who won the KBO’s first wire-to-wire regular season title. This year is different. LG went 7-1 against SSG last year. This year, they’re 6-2.
The last time LG won the title was in 1994. It’s been 29 years since they won the title.
The offense is solid. The starting rotation and bullpen are solid and the hitters are hitting well. First in team batting average (.286). First in team runs scored (397). Second in team ERA at 3.53. The foreign players do their job, and the veterans, including Kim Hyun-soo, lead them well.
However, they haven’t had much luck in the Korean Series. Last year, they bullied SSG all the way to the end to get a direct ticket to the Korean Series, but it didn’t work out. The Korean Series is long over for LG.
Yeom is also thirsty for a championship. He won a championship as a manager at SSG’s predecessor, SK, but has yet to win one as a coach, including at Kiwoom.
“I always talk positively to the players,” Yeom said, adding, “It’s time for our players to give it a try.” “We were shaky in the beginning and middle, but I think we have the strength, so I think we’re fighting for the lead,” he said confidently.
