In response to the pedi protest, Kang In-kwon pounces… Lee Kang-cheol “Isn’t this the second visit to the mound?” [PO1]
KT Moon Sang-cheol expressed dissatisfaction with the ball decision during his at-bat… Manager Kang In-kwon ran out to stop him, and
when the pitching coach climbed the mound, manager Lee Kang-cheol protested, saying, “The pitcher needs to be replaced.”
When Eric Peddy (NC Dinos), who was throwing well, expressed dissatisfaction with the ball decision, NC coach Kang In-kwon rushed out. In response, coach Lee Kang-cheol of the opposing team, KT Wiz, protested, saying, “Shouldn’t we check by visiting the mound?”
On the 30th, at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province, the first game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Postseason Playoffs (best of 5) is being played between NC Dinos and KT Wiz.
NC scored a large number of points early in the game due to KT starter William Cuevas’s trouble and KT’s defensive mistakes, and took an 8-1 lead until the 4th inning.
NC starting pitcher Peddy allowed a home run to Moon Sang-cheol in the bottom of the third inning, but continued pitching perfectly without any major danger.
Meanwhile, an unexpected situation occurred in the bottom of the 5th inning. After one out, Peddie’s 7th pitch, which was competing for a full count at Moon Sang-cheol’s at-bat, was ruled a ball, and Moon Sang-cheol walked to first base.
Then, Fedi spread his arms and appealed to the referee with a gesture asking, ‘Why isn’t it a strike?’ In response, umpire Lee Min-ho also made a gesture to go up to the mound.
In response, NC coach Kang In-kwon quickly ran out of the dugout and blocked pitcher Lee Min-ho. It seemed like a measure to prevent a protest from potentially leading to an exit. Second baseman Park Min-woo also grabbed Pedi and calmed him down.
Just as Peddy was about to continue pitching, NC sent pitching coach Kim Soo-kyung to the mound to calm Peddy down.
Then this time, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol ran out of the dugout and protested to the referee. It is said that Coach Kang In-kwon’s previous gesture was also a ‘mound visit’.
If the coaching staff visits the mound twice in one inning, the pitcher must be replaced according to regulations. Accordingly, Coach Lee appears to have protested whether NC should replace the pitcher.
However, the umpires did not view Coach Kang’s previous gesture as an official visit to the mound, and the game continued normally.
The KBO explained, “According to the speed-up regulations, there is a number of mound visits, but the umpire did not check the number of mound visits because he judged that it was a visit to the umpire himself.”
KT, who had put a runner in scoring position for the first time by making 1st and 2nd base against Peddie, was unable to capitalize on the opportunity as Kim Sang-soo struck out.짱구카지노 도메인
