‘Left-handed opponent change’ starting lineup against Australia… No. 4 Byeong-ho Park and DH Gun-woo Park [Tokyo site]
Finally, the first game. The WBC match against Australia, 메이저놀이터 where the fate of the Korean national team is at stake, will take place. Director Lee Kang-cheol took out the number 4 card by Park Byeong-ho.
The WBC baseball team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, will play its first match against Australia in the first round of WBC Group B at the Tokyo Dome in Japan from 12:00 pm on the 9th. The Korean national team predicted sidearm Koh Young-pyo as the starting pitcher for the game against Australia, and the Australian national team will put forward 22-year-old left-hander Jack O’Rourkeline.
Was it considering that the opponent was a left-handed pitcher? Coach Lee Kang-cheol put forward the best starting lineup, only slightly adjusting the batting order and the Osaka evaluation match. Lefty hitter Kim Hyun-soo is not the 4th hitter, but right-handed hitter Park Byung-ho is the 4th hitter. ‘Keystone Combi’ Tommy Edman and Ha-seong Kim maintain the ‘table setter’, and Jung-hoo Lee, Byung-ho Park and Hyun-soo Kim are the ‘cleanup trio’. Also, as the designated hitter, not Kang Baek-ho, but Park Kun-woo. Park Gun-woo showed a good sense of hitting by hitting two consecutive hits in the Osaka evaluation match. This is the reason why Park Geon-woo, a right-handed hitter, takes the lead instead of left-handed hitter Kang Baek-ho. The bottom batting order is third baseman Choi Jeong, catcher Yang Eui-ji, and right fielder Na Seong-beom.
The following is the starting lineup for Lee Kang-cheol-ho against Australia on the 9th.
Edmon (2nd baseman) – Kim Ha-seong (shortstop) – Lee Jung-hoo (center fielder) – Park Byeong-ho (1st baseman) – Kim Hyeon-su (left fielder) – Park Kun-woo (designated hitter) – Choi Jeong (3rd baseman) – Yang Eui-ji (catcher) – Na Seong-beom ( right field). Starting pitcher Koh Young-pyo.
