Song Myung-ki (NC Dinos) lost a lot of runs in the single battle for first place and was pushed out of the top spot in ERA.

Song Myeong-ki started in an away game against the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOK KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 20th, and was sluggish with 6 hits, 4 walks, 5 strikeouts and 3 runs in 3⅔ innings. The number of pitches was 91, which was quite a lot compared to the short innings.

Song Myung-ki, who allowed more than two runs for the first time in his fourth game this season, soared from 0.52 to 1.71.먹튀검증

LG and NC, who shared 1 win each in the 3 games in Jamsil, are tied for the lead with 10 wins and 6 losses. The winner of the last game of the series on this day will take the sole 1st place along with the winning series.

NC coach Kang In-kwon, ahead of an important game, expressed expectations, saying, “If starting pitcher Song Myung-ki pitches well today and the bullpen blocks it well, we can play a game with a good chance of winning.” .

Song Myung-ki recorded only 2 runs (1 earned) in 17⅓ innings in the previous 3 games, but he struggled every inning against the LG batter that day.

In the bottom of the first inning, he faced only three batters and conceded runs. He gave Hong Chang-ki a walk and Moon Seong-joo a hit to become first and third base safely, and Kim Min-seong got a right-handed hit.

Song Myung-ki struck out Austin Dean on the 1st and 3rd bases, and treated Moon Bo-kyung as a fly ball for first baseman and Dong-won Park as a fly ball for center fielder, preventing additional runs.

Song Myeong-gi, who threw 30 balls in the first inning alone, was cornered in the second inning. Immediately after being hit by Kim Ki-yeon, he allowed a huge foul home run to Seo Geon-chang. It was a dizzying moment for Song Myung-ki and NC.

Song Myeong-ki struck out Seo Kun-chang and sighed, but Kim Ki-yeon succeeded in stealing second base. Then, when Park Hae-min grounded in the infield, Kim Ki-yeon went to third base. Facing second out and third base, Song Myeong-ki caught Hong Chang-ki on a shortstop foul fly and managed to end the inning.

However, Song Myeong-ki could hardly find a sense of stability, and in the bottom of the 3rd inning, he was severely beaten by the LG-centered batting line. He was twisted by sending Moon Seong-joo on a walk. Then, Myung-ki Song was hit consecutively by Min-sung Kim and Austin and scored an additional run.

LG continued to shake Song Myeong-ki with team betting. Moon Bo-kyung’s sacrifice bunt made it 1 out, 2nd and 3rd base, and Park Dong-won’s sacrifice hit brought third base runner Kim Min-seong home.

Afterwards, Song Myeong-ki allowed a walk after a 9-pitch battle with Kim Ki-yeon, but Seo Geon-chang struck out on 3 pitches and finished the inning. By the end of the 3rd inning, Song Myung-ki had 70 pitches.

Song Myeong-gi, who showed anxiety, could not hold out for long.

Song Myeong-ki struck out Park Hae-min at the end of the 4th inning, but Hong Chang-ki walked again. And he was hit again by Moon Seong-ju.

With the runner in scoring position again, Song Myung-ki struck out Kim Min-seong on a swing with a sharp slider, but LG succeeded in stealing two bases, making it 2 out, 2nd and 3rd base.

The NC bench decided to replace the pitcher to prevent additional runs in a situation where the team was behind by 1-3 or 2 points. Fortunately, second pitcher Ryu Jin-wook treated Austin as a third baseman foul fly, so Song Myung-ki did not lose any additional runs.
