Shin Min-jae was deceived by Nail’s slider and swung, but the catcher Kim Tae-gun failed to catch the ball accurately, so he was in a strike-out situation. Recognizing this, Shin Min-jae quickly ran to first base, and Kim Tae-gun picked up the ball that bounced off and threw it to Nail. Nail, who saw Shin Min-jae heading to first base, threw the ball to first base, but Shin Min-jae’s foot already stepped on first base. With Shin Min-jae’s sensible play, LG continued its chances of scoring first and third base with one out. Later, Park Hae-min’s two-run timely hit and Moon Sung-joo’s one-run timely hit began the chase 3-5.

After his nail went down, Shin showed off his batting ability to the fullest. He hit Jeon’s slider at the first and second bases with one out in the bottom of the sixth inning, when his team was trailing 4-6, to make a score 5-6 chase. Afterwards, in the bottom of the eighth inning, when his team was leading 7-6, he hit Jang Hyun-sik’s four-seam fastball as the lead-off hitter, and recorded a hit to the right field to complete his multi-hit.

Shin Min-jae, who was considered a good coach after the game, said about the scene where he started the chase, “I missed the sweeper on the two strikes and was struck out. The catcher was supposed to shoot me (for the tag) because he missed the ball, but he didn’t and walked towards the pitcher. So I turned around and ran, and the catcher handed the ball to the pitcher and threw it to first base, so I think I had time to live.”

“The first base was empty, and when I saw the opponent catcher’s play, I had to run to the first base. In that situation, I had to run no matter what. I purposely turned around and ran because I was afraid I could see the catcher running. So I turned around and ran, but it wasn’t acting. I did it to survive,” he said with a smile.

Shin Min-jae, who laughed twice only with runners on base. Regarding the final score, he said, “After watching the front runner (Park) Dong-won score, I tried to see where the opponent (Kim) Sun-bin caught it and threw it, but (Park) Hae-min was going to the second base. I thought I could win at home if I check (Haemin) just once, so I made a momentary decision. I saw the situation while running at third base, and I ran because I thought I would get (a score).”

Shin became LG’s starting second baseman in early and mid-year last year. He was a backup who had previously been a pinch runner and defense. He was desperate for every moment, and his eagerness to contribute to the team somehow led to Shin’s performance and team victory in the game.

Shin, who is guaranteed the starting position, has a batting average of 0.262 (22 hits in 84 times at bat) and 14 RBIs in 29 games this year, with an OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of 0.678. His batting average fell to 0.191 early this month, but he is gradually improving his pace and getting back on track.

Regarding his batting sense, Shin said, “I had to follow the fastball to make a breaking ball, but as the result didn’t come out, I thought to hit it hard. The batting coach and the manager told me to hit the left side more. Now, I think he is swinging to the right regardless of the batting. Recently, I kept trying to hit the left side, but as I kept doing it, the result was okay.”

Meanwhile, LG had its second consecutive win following the last game (against Samsung Lions in Daegu on Saturday) thanks to Shin Min-jae’s performance. At the same time, the team had the upper hand in three consecutive games on weekends, securing a valuable win in front of the packed audience (23,750 viewers).
