“Even though the director has changed…it was embarrassing” Yeom Gyeong-yeop’s experience of ‘Elotrasico’ 

 “I think Ellotrasico’s energy is stronger than mine,” said

LG Twins coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop at the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Lotte Giants and the team’s season 3 away match held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 13th. He expressed his feelings about the ‘Elotrasico’, which he had previously played as a command tower.

The confrontation between LG and Lotte, ‘Elot Lasico’ is one of the representative rival matches in the KBO League. Even when the team as a whole is in a batting slump, in ‘Elotrasico’, there are often unpredictable situations, such as a fierce slugfest or unusual errors pouring in.스포츠토토

This year’s first Elotrasico was also dominated by plays worthy of its reputation. On the 11th, in the first Ellot Lasico of the season, Lotte defeated LG 6-5 and succeeded in suppressing the baseline. LG took the lead first and caught the flow in the beginning, but a lot of mistakes poured out. LG recorded 4 errors in the game on the 11th, and Lotte smiled at the end, with 2 errors overlapping in a situation where a reverse was allowed at the end of the 6th inning.

The match on the 12th was even more intense. Both teams had only one error in total, but a long bloody battle lasted 4 hours and 3 minutes. Both teams repeated back and forth in the second half of the game, and a total of 26 hits were poured. And 15 pitchers got on the mound. In particular, LG’s Lee Jeong-yong and Lotte’s Kim Won-joong, the closers they trusted, all collapsed. As a result, unlike the first game, LG got the victory in the second game.

When asked about the first match against Lotte as LG’s command tower on the 13th, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop smiled bitterly, saying, “I’m annoyed. I won’t say anything.” Continuing, he said, “I come and experience it for the first time. I asked the players, ‘Originally (with Lotte) do you play baseball like this?’ and they said yes.”

From the point of view of the fans watching, it is clear that there are elements that can be interesting and fun, but from the point of view of playing and conducting the game, it is inevitable to be embarrassed. Manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “I am very embarrassed because it is the first time I have suffered it. In fact, it is an extremely difficult game from the manager’s point of view. I have no intention of doing this at all, but even though the person (director) has changed, the game is played like this.”

LG seemed to be winning by succeeding in a 5-4 reversal from the attack in the top of the 7th inning the previous day (12th). However, the atmosphere of the game went strangely as Lee Jeong-yong, whom he trusted, allowed Lotte Koh Seung-min a come-from-behind three-run. What was really fortunate for LG was that they finished the game victoriously with a ‘big inning’ of 7 points in the 9th inning attack.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop smiled, saying, “I thought yesterday that we could end with a one-point lead, but that didn’t work out.”
