Kiwoom shortstop Edison Russell was replaced after only playing up to 5 innings due to dizziness. In the 6th inning, heavy defense Shin Jun-woo came in as shortstop, but unfortunately Shin Jun-woo made a mistake in handling the first batted ball.
Russell started as the 4th hitter and shortstop in the LG Twins game 스포츠토토held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 4th. He was going 2-for-3 with no hits and one walk at the plate, but was pulled out of the game before his fourth at-bat came. An official from the Kiwoom club explained, “Russell complained of dizziness and was replaced to protect the player.”
Shin Jun-woo, who came out with a heavy defensive end, recorded an error on his first batted ball. He was unable to handle Park Dong-won’s frontal hit in the 6th inning with 1 out and 1 base. The follow-up motion was not slow, but Park Dong-won’s feet were slightly faster than the throw. The first verdict is safe. Safe was confirmed through Kiwoom’s video review.
Kiwoom starter Ariel Hurado threw a ball that hit Hong Chang-ki after two outs and was driven to full base. Still, he struck out Park Hae-min and finished the inning without a run. Kiwoom is leading 0-3 to LG until the beginning of the 6th inning.
