Although he was a starting pitcher who was lacking by 2% somewhere, he has now been reborn as a ‘local ace’ that the team believes in. Yeom Gyeong-yeop,메이저놀이터coach of the LG Twins, is proud of Im Chan-gyu’s growth.
In the 7th game of the season against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 27th, Lim Chan-gyu recorded 6 innings, 1 hit, 4 walks, 3 strikeouts and no runs, achieving 5 wins of the season. This is the first time Lim Chan-gyu pitched a scoreless pitch in June.
Lim Chan-gyu sent a runner out in every inning except for 5 out of 6 innings, but as a result, the game ended without a run. It was also encouraging that he did not allow long hits against Choi Jeong and Guillermo Heredia, who recently showed off a hot hitting feeling.
On the 23rd of last month, Lim Chan-gyu, who played against Won-seok Oh at the same place as the starting pitcher, gave the team victory with 1 run in 6 innings, and this time also contributed greatly to the team’s great victory. Because it was an important confrontation with the competition for the lead, it meant more than one win to both Lim Chan-gyu and his team.
The command tower also praised Lim Chan-gyu for his recent rise. Prior to the match against SSG on the 28th, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “The thing that Chan-gyu Lim improved on was that he was in poor condition yesterday as he did not play well in the 1st and 2nd innings. I looked back.
“The curve strike rate fell and there were a lot of balls, so the count went to a disadvantage, but it was a game where I felt, ‘Lim Chan-gyu has grown to the next level’ when I saw him running the game in that situation. If it was like before, it would have collapsed, but it did not collapse. added.메이저사이트
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Good grades in the beginning build confidence, and such results are created, but managing the game on your own in a bad situation is one of the really important parts as a starting pitcher. After all, an ace is an ace who leads the game even when his condition is not good, and I saw that in Chan-gyu Lim yesterday.
” Lim Chan-gyu, who has already won 6 wins before the end of June, is aiming for a double-digit multiplier for the first time in 3 years since 10 wins in 2020. If he maintains his current pace well, he will challenge the most wins in an individual season (previously 11 wins in 2018). You can.
