‘Knee pain’ Park to start WC, NC manager says “focus on Game 1”

NC Dinos outfielder Park Gun-woo, who missed the final game of the regular season due to knee pain, will start Game 1 of the Wild Card Decision on April 19.”He’s not 100 percent recovered, but he has to play somehow in this situation,” NC manager Kang Myung-ho said ahead of the first game against the Doosan Bears at Changwon NC Park.The lineup was Son Asub (designated hitter), Park Min-woo (second base), Park Gun-woo (right field), Jason Martin (center field), Kwon Hee-dong (left field), Kim Joo-won (shortstop), Seo Ho-cheol (third base), Kim Hyung-joon (catcher), and Do Tae-hoon (first base).

“Since (1-3) are the mainstays of our batting lineup, their performances will make or break us,” Kang said, adding, “They have a lot of experience, so I expect them to fulfill their roles.” As for choosing Kim over veteran catcher Park Se-hyuk, Kang explained, “I thought he had better chemistry with the starter, Tanner, and I thought he had more stability at the end of the season.”After being slightly outclassed in the starting matchup in Game 2, NC is ready to go all out on this day. Song Myung-ki (NC) will face off against Brandon Waddell (Doosan).NC finished fourth in the regular season with one game in hand, so a win today would advance them to the semi-finals without having to play a second game.

“Our focus will be on today’s game,” said Kang, “and we’ll decide whether to use the bullpen early or after the fifth inning.”When asked about Doosan’s chances of reaching the semi-finals with two consecutive wins, Kang said it was an “objective assessment” but expressed confidence that “as long as the players don’t get agitated, we can win.””I hope the younger players will remember the good things from this season and play with determination and enjoyment,” said Kang, whose team lost the third spot to SSG Landers at the end of the season.”I saw him playing catch today, but I haven’t gotten a report (on his status) yet,” he said of ace Eric Peddie, who missed the wild-card 온라인카지노 decider after taking a hard hit to the right arm.
