At the end of the 8th inning, when KT was leading 1-0, after KT lead hitter Kim Sang-soo went on base with a walk, manager Kim Won-hyeong went to the ground to protest to the referee, and the situation started.
SSG Changed pitcher Moon Seung-Won hit Kim Sang-Soo with a 6-pitch pitch, and Kim Sang-Soo’s bat followed.
The referees did not judge by Kim Sang-soo’s swing. Even looking at the replay of the relay screen, it appeared that the bat was not spinning.
Referee Choo Pyeong-ho passed the swing decision to the first base referee, and first base referee Moon Seung-hun judged it to be ‘north swing’. However, manager Kim Won-hyung came out to the ground and appealed to first baseman Moon Seung-hun. He did not stop protesting as if he could not understand the decision of the referees by coach Kim Won-hyeong.
As the protests continued, Moon Seung-hun, the first base referee, eventually gave the order to leave.
Even after being ordered to leave, manager Kim Won-hyung could not calm down. Taking off his sunglasses, he approached referee Moon Seung-hoon and continued to protest. Coach Cho Won-woo approached and stopped him, but he did not stop protesting. Director Kim Won-hyung eventually headed to the dugout, but he couldn’t hide his unhappy expression.
Why did coach Sundong appeal so intensely that he was prepared to leave?
Against KT, SSG starter Kim Gwang-hyun gave up 1 run in the 4th inning, but continued to fight well for 7 innings. At the beginning of the 8th inning, Ha Jae-hoon withdrew from a chance to turn the bases loaded with 2 outs, striking out with a swing, and the atmosphere was again going to KT at the end of the 8th inning.
Defeat was certain if more runs were allowed.
SSG ended the inning without conceding a run in the bottom of the 8th inning, although manager Kim Won-hyung was ejected. However, even at the beginning of the ninth inning, the lead batter could not take advantage of the chance to get on base and lost 0-1 to KT.
SSG failed to score two days in a row against KT and suffered a loss. The last 19 innings are scoreless. In August, the bat cooled down.
August is a month in which all teams must compete fiercely for rankings. Teams that are defeated in August cannot advance to fall baseball. You have to overcome the heat and keep your ranking.
After the All-Star break, the league ranking of 1 out of 7 in the second round has changed to the sole lead of LG, which has won 6 consecutive victories.
Defending champion SSG is in second place, more than four games behind leader LG for the first time this season. Even second place in the league cannot be relieved. Doosan is closely chasing, and KT, which has won 5 consecutive wins, is also terrifyingly coming up. If you are careless for a moment, you can suddenly be pushed out of the ranking fight.
SSG suffered a lethargic 2-game losing streak in the hot weather in early August.
Is it to avoid giving off the atmosphere?
Coach Won-hyeong Kim, who is purebred, appealed even stronger enough to prepare for his first exit this season and was sent off.
