LG will face the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball

The LG Twins will face the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball in a special match of the ‘MLB World Tour Seoul Series’ at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul at 12:07 p.m. on the 18th.

Moon Bo-kyung, who was selected by Team Korea, will start at third base. Manager Yeom Kyung-yup said in a pre-game interview, “Moon Bo-kyung is playing for us. (He won’t play for the national team this evening. Bo-kyung has had international experience, so I think it’s right for him to play for us. For Park Myung-geun, I think it would be a great experience for him to have his first international experience there, so I sent him back to the national team. I think that’s the better way to go,” he said.

Yoon Kyung-yup made his starting pitching decision early on against San Diego.

It was revealed early in the exhibition game. Chan-kyu Lim will start. Lim posted a career-high 14-3 record with a 3.42 ERA in 30 appearances last year.

“He throws about 80 pitches, and then it’s two days in a row, and there are only two (games) left, so I think it’s right to start the season with the feeling of the winning group throwing today’s game and going back-to-back until tomorrow’s game. We’re going out today and setting up a back-to-back tomorrow,” he said.

“It’s good to win every game, even if it’s a friendly game, and the confidence our players feel by winning. It’s better to start the season in a winning mood than a losing one, so it won’t be easy, but we’ll give it a normal test.”

There will be no early game plan, but they will bunt when necessary.

“I don’t think we’re going to bunt in the early innings, but if the score is tight in the late innings, I think we’ll bunt. Depending on how the batting order goes, we might bunt there,” Yoon said.
