LG infielder Son Ho-young was removed from the first team roster and immediately appeared in a second team game, hitting a home run in his first at-bat. Pitcher Yoon Hosol was added to the first team roster for the first time this season.
Son Ho-young made a substitute appearance against the Changwon NC in the KBO on the 25th and started at second base against Samsung in the Futures League at Gyeongsan Stadium on the 26th. After the game against NC on the 25th, he traveled to Gyeongsan, and on the 26th, he was added to the second team roster and immediately played in the Futures League game.
In the game against Samsung’s second team on the 26th, Son Ho-young led off the first inning with a single to left field. He then stole second base with runners on first and third. LG ended the inning with two outs on an infield grounder.
Son Ho-young hit a two-run home run (120 meters) over the left field fence off Samsung starter Hong Moo-woo in the second inning for a 1-0 lead.
Then, in the fourth inning, with runners on first and second, he hit another three-run home run over the left field fence (115 meters). His back-to-back home runs made the score 6-0.
Son’s bat stayed hot. In the fifth inning, with runners on second and third, she hit a two-run double to right field against reliever Kim Tae-woo.
By the fifth inning, he was 4-for-4 with two doubles, a home run, and seven RBIs. By the end of the fifth inning, LG’s second team led Samsung’s second team 9-1.
Son Ho-young was promoted to the first team on the 19th, only to be sent back down to the second team a week later. He started against SSG in Incheon on the 19th and went hitless in three at-bats. After missing the next game, Son went 0-for-3 as a pinch hitter for Hong Chang-ki in the fourth inning against the Changwon NC on the 25th.
LG made five changes to its starting lineup in the fourth inning after falling behind 0-7. Son Ho-young struck out swinging against NC Peddie and was retired on a grounder to third base with one out in the sixth. Third baseman Seo Ho-cheol played good defense. In the bottom of the ninth inning, down 1-14, he hit a grounder to third base to end the game.
He also made a few errors on defense. In the fourth inning, he waited in place for Ahn Jung-yeol’s grounder to second base, but the throw to first base was one-bound and the first baseman missed it. The throwing error allowed the second baseman to score, making it 0-11. In the fifth inning, a grounder to shortstop that was recorded as an infield hit was not handled properly.
Meanwhile, pitcher Yoon Hosol will be added to the roster on the 26th to fill the vacancy left by Son’s exclusion from the first team. This is Yoon’s first first-team roster appearance this season, as he was transferred from Hanwha to LG as compensation for Chae Eun-sung, who signed a four-year, 9 billion won free agent contract with Hanwha last winter.안전놀이터
Initially, manager Yoon Kyung-yup said, “Yoon Hoseol is good in the second team. I will call him up for the September expansion roster,” but he was called up as a long relief or bullpen reinforcement after Choi Won-tae collapsed with 11 runs the day before.
In 22 appearances in the Futures League, Yoon has a 4-2 record with two saves and a 2.89 ERA. In his last 10 games, he has a 1.13 ERA. In August, he has a 0-0 record in seven games.
