‘Win the KS 3rd game’
LG Twins and KT Wiz play the ‘must-win’ card to set up Game 3 of the Korean Series (KS).
LG pulled off a dramatic 5-4 comeback win in the second game of the 2023 KBO Korean Series (best-of-seven) against the KT Wiz at Jamsil Stadium on April 8.
After losing the first game of the Korean Series on April 7, LG came back with a vengeance in the second game. After conceding four runs to KT in the first inning, the team bounced back with an ironclad pitching staff and home runs from Oh Ji-hwan and Park Dong-won.
LG, which is trying to win its first Korean Series title in 29 years, will try to win Game 3.
In Game 3, LG will look for a win with their homegrown ace, Im Chan-kyu.
LG is putting a lot of faith in Im’s shoulders.
Im has appeared in 30 games this year, posting a 14-3 record with a 3.42 ERA. He has the most wins of any LG pitcher.
However, in four appearances against KT this year, 카지노사이트Lim struggled, going 1-1 with a 6.61 ERA. In Suwon, he was even worse, with an 8.53 ERA.
LG is determined to fight back by using all of its available bullpen options besides Lim. The bullpen is one of LG’s biggest strengths.
LG will play Games 3 and 4 of the Korean Series at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on October 10 and 11.
KT will try to win the Korean Series for the second time in two years after winning the 2021 title. However, the upset loss in Game 2 dampened their spirits somewhat.
Wes Benjamin will take the mound in Game 3 with a huge responsibility.
Benjamin has started 29 games this year, posting a 15-6 record with a 3.54 ERA. He finished second in wins and led KT to a second-place finish in the regular season.
He pitched five innings of three-run ball in Game 2 of the playoffs against the NC Dinos and five innings of two-run ball (one earned) in Game 5 to lead the team to the Korean Series.
Benjamin has been dominant against LG this year. In five appearances against LG, he went 4-0 with a 0.84 ERA. On July 25, he pitched eight innings of three-hit ball with one walk and nine strikeouts against LG.
In the short-term, a Game 3 victory would be crucial to clinch the series. All eyes will be on the outcome of the best-of-three series.
