“I’m glad I finished well without injury. I think there will be good results.”
‘The master of the house’ was full of confidence.
The World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team completed their domestic training schedule on the 3rd with a practice match against SSG Landers’ 2nd team. After moving to Osaka, Japan on the 4th, completing the final training with the Orix Buffaloes (6th) and the Hanshin Tigers (7th), they will move to Tokyo for a tournament starting on the 9th.
Yang Eui-ji, whom I met after the game, said, “It’s fortunate that I finished well without injury. Now I have to play a real game. The players have a strong mindset, and the sense of the game is improving as they play, which is a lot of help.”
As a catcher, he led the young pitching staff by wearing a mask from the 1st to the 6th inning. From the 7th episode, he handed over the main room to Lee Ji-young.
Regarding the general shaking of the pitching staff that day, he emphasized, “There were players who were in good condition, and there were players who were not good because they had to fly for a long time.
Regarding Koh Young-pyo, who made a sortie as a starter and pitched well with 12 batters and 3 innings with no hits, he showed his trust, saying, “My balance and control are worse than when I played in Arizona. I think the coach will trust him and use him as a starter. I also believe in Young-pyo.”
Eui-ji Yang recorded 2 hits and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats, leading the team’s batting line with Park Kun-woo (3 hits, 4 RBIs), Oh Ji-hwan (3 hits, 3 RBIs) and Kim Hye-seong (2 hits, 1 walk). In particular, the double hit that completely split the middle right in the 5th inning was an intense line drive hit that was properly hit by the bat.
“All the players are trying to do their best with one mind. Overall, I am full of confidence. I think there will be good results.”스포츠토토
