SSG Landers confirmed the winning series early ahead of the last game of the three-game series. The batting line, which showed concentration for two days in a row, led the team to victory with a large number of goals. In particular, neither the command tower nor the distinguished player forgot to mention this player. Shin-soo Choo, a ‘veteran’ who has returned from injury, is the main character.

On the 16th and 17th, SSG won the home game against the Lotte Giants at SSG Landers Field in Incheon for two days in a row and returned to the lead. Especially on the 17th, the joy was doubled as the season 4 home game was sold out. Since it was a face-to-face confrontation with Lotte, which is attracting attention as a ‘distribution rival’, there must have been a lot of pressure, but the players made a winning streak by solving the game as usual.스포츠토토

The addition of reinforcements was a big help to the team. Choo Shin-soo, who left due to an ankle injury, returned to the first team on the 16th after rehabilitation. On the day of the call-up, Choo Shin-soo, who was even responsible for the leadoff, went 2-for-2 with 2 hits (1 home run), 3 RBIs and 3 runs, and played 5 on-base games including 3 walks.

The next day, Choo Shin-soo’s performance continued. Choo Shin-soo went 4-for-4 with 2 hits and 2 runs, getting on base three times. In particular, it was a scene that laid the foundation for a come-from-behind victory at the end of the 8th inning with a ball that hit the body without avoiding the ball flying towards the body from 1st and 2nd base.

In both games, the ‘fixer’ appeared at the decisive moment, but in terms of the series as a whole, Shin-soo Choo’s performance led to the team’s securing of the winning series. To that extent, the entire team waited for Choo Shin-soo’s return.

When the command tower forms the batting order, Choo Shin-soo is still an indispensable player for the team.

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said, ahead of the game on the 17th, when asked about Shin-soo Choo’s existence, he said, “It’s always difficult to use a lineup. After a little more time in the future, Choi Ji-hoon will have to go there.” After Choo Shin-soo No. 1 and Choi Ji-hoon No. 2, the batting order leading to the center batting line is more active.

Even after the game was over, coach Kim Won-hyung praised Shin-soo Choo’s performance, saying, “At the end of the 8th, Jin-seong Kang and Sang-hyun Ahn reached base with a hit in the lower batting line, and Shin-soo Choo came back to life again, leading to a big chance.”

It wasn’t just about getting stronger. Juniors who felt the veteran’s void both on and off the field also welcomed Shin-soo Choo’s return.

Eui-san Jeon, who led the team to victory with a timely turnaround on the 17th, said, “It seems that the weight of the batting line has changed with (Chu) Shin-soo returning.” He said a lot of good things to us and seems to make the atmosphere good.”
