SSG coach Kim Won-hyung’s words were filled with regret.
“We didn’t win as much as we thought in August,” he said before the team’s away game against Hanwha in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at the Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park on Friday. We’re not playing as well as we thought we would,” he said, adding, “When it’s easy to win, it’s too easy, but when it’s not, it’s too hard. That’s why the losing streak is getting longer.”
SSG has recently lost four straight games, including a shocking three-game sweep at home against KIA last weekend. Prior to this game, SSG was in third place with 60 wins, one draw and 51 losses, but after recently losing the second spot to KT, even the third place is in jeopardy. The gap between them and fourth-place KIA (56 wins, 2 draws, 50 losses) is only 1.5 games.먹튀검증
SSG’s bullpen has been shaky lately. Last week, SSG’s bullpen had an ERA of 12.57. Last week, SSG lost four games, two of which were come-from-behind losses. “In the bullpen, we lost Moon Seung-won as a starter, and I feel the gap is big. Choi Min-jun is also out. Noh Kyung-eun and Ko Hyo-joon are big. They are overloaded.”
SSG is trying to revitalize the atmosphere by reorganizing the coaching staff. Coach Kim said, “We had a day off yesterday, so the players have to show their skills in the end. We have 1-3 starters for the midweek game. The starting pitchers are pitching stably, and the batters are getting better,” he said, adding, “I think we should start with a new mood from today.”
