NC wins 3rd straight over LG, despite referee changes, coach ejection, etc.

The NC Dinos swept a three-game home series against the LG Twins over the weekend despite the ejection of manager Kang Myung-ho.

The fourth-ranked Dinos defeated the top-ranked LG 5-3 in a home game of the KBO Baseball 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL on Sunday at NC Park in Changwon.

Both teams played in chaotic conditions.

Umpire Yoon Sang-won, who was lightly hit in the foot by NC’s Park Gun-woo in the ninth inning of the previous day’s game, missed the game. An infield hit is an infield hit if the ball touches the umpire first, not the fielders.메이저놀이터

LG lost the game in the bottom of the ninth inning on the 26th, and there were posts online predicting the umpire’s attack.

The KBO Umpires Committee decided not to use Yoon, who was initially scheduled to umpire the game on the 27th.

The game began in a solemn atmosphere with police inspecting the ballpark, and in the bottom of the first inning, with runners on first and third, LG starter Im Chan-kyu hit NC’s Park Gun-woo in the head with a direct hit and was ejected for a head shot.

After the top of the third inning, NC manager Kang Myung-ho was automatically ejected for protesting the video review.

The game continued with tension on and off the field.

Choi Dong-hwan, who came on in a hurry after Lim Chan-kyu left the mound with the bases loaded in the first inning, threw a pitch that Jason Martin pushed away.

LG tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the third inning with runners on first and third on Shin Min-jae’s sacrifice fly to center field.

Shin Min-jae’s hit went to the center fielder and second baseman, and NC second baseman Park Min-woo made a dynamic catch.

First baseman Hong Chang-ki ran to second, then turned and ran to first, and third baseman Park Hae-min came home on a ‘retouch’ after Park Min-woo’s throw.

Park Min-woo threw to first base to catch Hong Chang-ki, who did not return home.

NC was expecting an inning change without LG scoring, but the umpires agreed and ruled that Park Hae-min had reached home before the first baseman was out.

NC manager Kang Myung-ho requested a video review and appealed the call when it was not overturned. Despite knowing that protesting the video review would result in an automatic ejection, Kang continued to protest.

The NC players were eager to win.

NC took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning when Son Asub singled to left and Park Min-woo doubled to right field with runners on second and third and Yoon Hyung-joon hit a sacrifice fly to left field.

In the bottom of the fourth, with runners on first and second, Park Min-woo hit a two-run double to left field to make it 4-2.

After LG scored a run in the top of the sixth on Austin Dean’s RBI double, NC added a run in the bottom of the sixth on Park’s RBI single up the middle with two outs. Park finished the day 4-for-5 with three RBIs.

LG cut the deficit to 3-5 in the top of the eighth when pinch-hitter Kim Hyun-soo singled to right field, putting runners on first and second with one out.

However, Shin Min-jae was tagged out at home on Austin’s grounder to third, and Moon Bo-kyung was retired on a grounder in front of the second baseman after Oh Hwan singled to load the bases.

The gap between the two teams was reduced to 4.5 games as first-place LG suffered its third straight loss, while second-place KT WIZ won its third straight game.
