SSG Landers closer Seo Jin-yong, 31, “Mr. 

SSG won 6-3 against the Lotte Giants held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 21st, decorating the weekend with a series of 3 consecutive matches. 

SSG led 6-2 with Guillermo Heredia’s double in the top of the ninth.

At the end of the ninth inning, it was not a save condition, but SSG coach Kim Won-hyung put in Seo Jin-yong as the finisher. Since Seo Jin-yong’s latest appearance was against the NC Dinos on the 17th, we considered the importance of the match along with the sense of the game. 

Seo Jin-yong, who took the mound for relief at the end of the ninth inning, pitched the most poorly this season with 3 walks and 1 run in 1 inning. After the opening, the streak of 20 consecutive games with an ERA of 0 stopped. 

Seo Jin-yong sent out lead hitter Yoo Gang-nam for a walk. The follow-up, Ko Seung-min, also led to a crisis by walking consecutively. He then allowed another walk in the 10th pitch match against Park Seung-wook. He threw 22 pitches without catching a single out count. 

Seo Jin-yong exchanged points with an outcount after an 8-ball game with Kim Min-seok. This is the first earned run Seo Jin-yong gave up after 20 2/3 innings this season. The run scored against the NC Dinos on the 14th of last month was an unclaimed point due to a catch error by the right fielder. 

Afterwards, Seo Jin-yong treated Ahn Kwon-soo and An Chi-hong as infield ground balls from 1st and 1st and 2nd bases, and the game was difficult. 

Choi Jeong-eun, who recorded multiple hits (two or more hits in one game), including a final solo home run in the top of the first inning, said, “I don’t think I have much stake in the team’s victory today. I think I helped a little.” At the same time, he turned the ball around, saying, “(Seo) Jin Yong-yi blocked the team without losing concentration until the end, so the team won.”메이저놀이터

Manager Kim Won-hyeong evaluated, “Jin Yong-yi had a hard time stopping the game at the end, but he still showed his strength as a closer.” He added, “Today’s first run broke the record for an unearned game, but he did very well during the last game.” 

Although the end pitcher’s struggles have continued this season, SSG was reassured by the presence of closer Seo Jin-yong. He was close to the end of the day, but eventually kept the team’s lead to the end. Even in a crisis situation in the safe and full base, it did not collapse. Among the seven pitchers with more than four saves this season, Seo Jin-yong is the only closer who has never made a blown save. 

Seo Jin-yong’s batting average is 0.149 and his on-base percentage per inning is low at 1.13. 0 home runs. His slugging percentage is 0.189.

Seo Jin-yong is leading the team in relief with a total of 16 saves this season. Lotte Giants Kim Won-joong (9), who placed second in the division, was far behind. 

Manager Kim Won-hyung cheered, saying, “I hope he will play the game with the mindset of starting over.”
