‘Injury recovery’ best starters – no Shin-soo Choo vs. 6th man Man-Rufo Son
SSG Landers and NC Dinos face off. The lineup for the first round of the semi-finals has been revealed.
SSG and NC will face off in the first round of the semi-finals on April 22 at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. After finishing the regular season in fourth place, NC advanced to the semifinals with a one-game victory over the Doosan Bears in the wild-card game. NC scored three runs in the first inning against Doosan after starter Tanner was shaken up early, but a dramatic game-winning home run by Seo Ho-cheol in the bottom of the fourth inning turned the tide. The team then pounded the Doosan mound for a 14-9 victory. SSG, the third-place team in the regular season, took four days off after finishing all of their scheduled games on the 17th to prepare for the semifinals.
NC, who entered the semifinals in the best possible mood, will face SSG, the third-place team in the regular season. The two teams’ regular season head-to-head record was close. They were tied at 8 wins and 8 losses.
The home team, SSG, was the first to reveal their starting lineup. SSG’s ‘table setters’ are Oh Tae-gon (first base) and Park Sung (shortstop). In the regular season, the Choo-Shin-soo-Choi Ji-hoon combination was the most common, but they changed it up for the postseason. We took into account the team’s left-handed batting lineup and the matchup with the opposing starting pitcher. Choi Ji-hoon was placed in the bottom of the batting order, and Choo Shin-soo was removed from the lineup. Shin has struggled in his career against Shin Min-hyuk, going 2-for-22 with a 9.1 OPS. He did hit one home run in the head-to-head this season, but was hitless in his other five at-bats.
Choi returns to the starting lineup as the third outfielder after being sidelined for the remainder of the regular season with an injury, platooning with Guillermo Heredia (left field) and Han Yoo-seom (designated hitter) in the middle of the order. Ha Jae-hoon (right field) made his first career postseason start. Choi Ji-hoon (center field), Kim Sung-hyun (second base), and Kim Min-sik (catcher) are the bottom of the order. Kim Won-hyung started Kim Sung-hyun at second base instead of Choi Joo-hwan.
SSG’s starting pitcher for Game 1 is Roenis Elias. 카지노사이트넷 Elias went 8-6 with a 3.70 ERA in 22 regular season games. Against NC, he was 1-1 with a 7.53 ERA in three games.
NC kept much of its winning lineup from the wild-card game. The only change was in the bottom of the batting order, with Do Tae-hoon replacing Oh Young-soo at first base.
Son As-seop (designated hitter) and Park Min-woo (second baseman) set the table, while Park Gun-woo (right fielder), Martin (center fielder), and Kwon Hee-dong (left fielder) remained unchanged in the “cleanup trio”.
Kim Joo-won, the starting shortstop who batted sixth in the wild card game, will bat ninth, and Seo Ho-cheol, the hero of the game-winning home run, will move up from seventh to sixth. The starting catcher is also Kim Hyung-jun, not Park Se-hyeong-ki. Kim showed off his power in the wild card game, hitting two home runs.
The starting pitcher is Shin Min-hyuk. Shin is 5-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 29 games this season. Against SSG, he has appeared in four games and is winless with a 6.57 ERA.
