SSG played the first semi-playoff game against NC Dinos held at Munhak SSG Landers Field on October 22 and lost 3 to 4.
On this day, SSG consisted of Oh Tae-gon (first baseman) – Park Seong-han (shortstop) – Choi Jeong (third baseman) – Heredia (left fielder) – Han Yu-seom (designated hitter) – Ha Jae-hoon (right fielder) – Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder) – Kim Seong-hyeon (second baseman) – Kim Min-sik (Catcher) took the lead in the starting batting order and faced NC starting pitcher Shin Min-hyuk. Elias went up to the starting mound for SSG.
SSG recorded consecutive three-way errors in the bottom of the first and second innings, then took the opportunity to reach second and third base with one out and a sacrifice bunt in the bottom of the third inning with consecutive hits by Ji-Hoon Choi and Seong-Hyun Kim. However, after follow-up batter Oh Tae-gon struck out on a missed swing, Park Seong-han hit a fly ball to left field and missed the opportunity to score first.
SSG had a chance to get to first and second base with no outs in the bottom of the fourth inning thanks to consecutive hits by Choi Jeong and Heredia, but all of the follow-up batters hit fly balls and failed to score.
Afterwards, SSG, which was maintaining a balance of 0, was in danger of starting pitcher Elias, who had pitched perfectly with no runs until the 7th inning, being hit by an opponent in the 8th inning. SSG allowed its first run in the top of the 8th inning when Elias’ first-pitch changeup to pinch hitter Kim Seong-wook led to a 2-run home run that went over the left-center fence.
SSG, who launched a counterattack, scored back-to-back runs in the bottom of the 8th inning with back-to-back hits by pinch hitters Choo Shin-soo and Choi Joo-hwan, and Choi Jeong’s sacrifice fly ball by left fielder on Park Seong-han’s sacrifice bunt with one out on second and third base. However, the follow-up batter, Heredia, struck out on a missed swing and failed to tie the game.
In the top of the 9th inning, when Park Min-woo’s hit to right, Do Tae-hoon’s sacrifice bunt, and Park Min-woo’s 3rd base steal led to a crisis with one out and 3rd base, SSG gave up a painful additional run when Martin hit an RBI single to right. Closing pitcher Seo Jin-yong took the mound, but even in the ensuing crisis with 2 outs and runners on base, he hit a timely hit with 1 RBI from Seo Ho-cheol.
SSG started chasing in the bottom of the 9th inning with Ha Jae-hoon’s 2-run home run. However, the follow-up batters were unable to create additional scoring opportunities, resulting in a one-run loss.
Coach Kim Won-hyung said after the game, “We lost today’s game, but Elias pitched very well and went 8 innings. A good scoring opportunity early in the game did not result in a goal, so we lost. Although it did not result in a goal, there were no problems creating opportunities early in the game. However, the game went to the end in a tight match due to lack of scoring in the early stages. “From my perspective, there is no problem with the batters’ condition,” he said.
Regarding closing pitcher Seo Jin-yong’s appearance on the mound in the 9th inning, Manager Kim said, “I thought that a 2-run gap was too big, and a 3-run gap would be difficult to catch in one inning. (Roh) Gyeong-eun played very well during the season, but he had a bit of a loss, so I brought up (Seo) Jin-yong to avoid giving him 1 point. The result was a hit with 2 outs. “That’s how the situation turned out,” he said, expressing regret.
SSG announced Gwang-Hyun Kim as the starter for the second game of the semi-playoffs. The starting pitcher for NC’s second game of the semi-playoffs against SSG is Song Myeong-ki.
There is a high possibility that NC will put ‘Super Ace’ Eric Peddy on the starting mound for Game 3 to be held in Changwon on the 25th rather than Game 2. On the 22nd, Peddie pitched 19 pitches in the Munhak Stadium bullpen. Coach Kang In-kwon said after the game, “Peddy has recovered to about 90%, but he feels uncomfortable, so it will be difficult for him to pitch in tomorrow’s second game.” If SSG loses the second game with Kim Gwang-hyun in the lead, it is expected that they will go on the road to Changwon with great pressure.
