KIA “Captain” Kim Sun-bin (34) returned to the starting lineup. Kim Yoo-shin (24) was dropped from the first team after a poor showing the previous day.
“Kim Sun-bin will start today,” manager Kim Jong-kook said ahead of the second game of a three-game weekend series against Samsung in the 2023 KBO regular season at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu. He played yesterday and didn’t feel any pain,” Kim said.
“Instead, the hamstring is likely to recur. Even if it heals, there could be another problem on the other side. We’ll keep checking it even if we use him as a starter. He needs to take good care of himself.”
Kim returned to the first team the day before. He didn’t start, but came in as a pinch-hitter for Choi Jeong-yong in the fifth inning. He played until the ninth inning and went 0-for-3.
He played well without any problems and will start today. The sixth batter, a second baseman. The team had lost the previous day. Kim Sun-bin’s performance became important.
Kim Yoo-shin, who had pitched the second game the day before and was shut down for seven runs in 0.2 innings, was dropped from the first team. In his place, Hwang Dong-ha was called up.
Kim had pitched well for Samsung on the first and third days, throwing 2.1 perfect innings and 0.1 innings of one-hit ball, respectively. He faced Samsung for the third time and was hit hard.
Manager Kim Jong-kook said, “Kim Yoo-shin has been pitching well. He had a good outing against Samsung. Yesterday, he got hit too much. I need to pay attention to my pitches, but I think I threw too much to the middle. There were too many in-play hits, and that was a factor in the runs.”먹튀검증
