Veteran catcher Park Se-hyuk is out of the lineup for the fourth straight game.
The NC Dinos
Who are just one win away from qualifying for the playoffs (best-of-5), have made changes to their starting lineup.
NC will face SSG Landers in the third game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank Solar KBO League Semi-
Playoffs (Semi-PO – best-of-five) on April 25 at NC Park in Changwon.
NC, which reached the semifinals after a wild-card deciding game (WC) against the Doosan Bears,
has gained momentum after sweeping the first and second games. They need just one win to secure a spot in the POs.
They made some changes to their starting lineup. Oh Young-soo, who played first base until the
second game, was removed and Do Tae-hoon was inserted. Shortstop Kim Joo-won, who had been batting ninth, moved up to the eighth spot.
NC coach Kang Myung-ho said before the game
“Oh Young-soo didn’t match up well with (SSG starter) Oh Won-seok, so I put Do Tae-hoon at first
base. We also wanted to find stability on the defense side.”
Oh is 1-for-5 against Oh Won-seok this season.
Son As-seop (designated hitter) and Park Min-woo (second baseman) will be the offensive sparks,
while Park Gun-woo (right fielder), Jason Martin (center fielder), and Kwon Hee-dong (left fielder) will be the center fielders.
Seo Ho-cheol (third base), Kim Hyung-joon (catcher), Kim Joo-won (shortstop), and Do Tae-hoon (first base) will follow.
Veteran catcher Park Se-hyuk has yet to get a chance to play in fall baseball. Kang said, “Park Se-
hyuk is in good shape, but Kim Hyung-jun has been playing well. For now, I think he can play better,
so I’m putting him in the starting lineup,” Kang said.
A wrist injury that sidelined him at the end of the season is also a negative for Park Se-hyuk. “His
wrist is in the process of getting better,” Kang said. He’s in the process of healing his wrist,” said
Kang, who lamented that the way he operated in the absence of the injury was not the same as at the beginning of the season, but he hoped that “there will be something he can do later.”
Tanner Tully will start on the mound for NC.
Tanner joined NC as a substitute this season, posting a 5-2 record with a 2.92 ERA. He made one start against SSG, giving up two runs in 5⅓ innings.
In fall ball this year, he didn’t live up to expectations in Game 1 of the WC against Doosan, giving up five runs on seven hits (one home run) in four innings. He’ll need a different performance tonight to stand a chance. 카지노사이트존
