The starting team also responded to the command tower’s trust. The back door is also solid. However, the link is shaking.
The Lotte Giants suffered two consecutive losses against the Hanwha Eagles over the weekend. With the win over NC Dinos on the 24th, the excitement subsided again.
Lotte’s starting rotation at the beginning of the season was virtually confirmed. From the duo of Dan Strayley and Charlie Barnes to Park Se-woong, the first to third selections were announced from the beginning. Here, the 4th and 5th selections, which were the stage of competition, were also hardened by Han Hyun-hee and Na Kyun-an.
The back door that Koo Seung-min and Kim Won-joong are enduring is also reassuring. Koo Seung-min allowed only one hit in five demonstration games and recorded no runs. Kim Won-joong, who went to the 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic), is also on a good track.
The weekend match against Hanwha was a series in which the starters, who showed anxiety at the beginning of the exhibition game, reciprocated the trust of the command tower. It was like a series in which Lotte coach Larry Sutton promised to ‘fight with the sword’.
Strayley gave up 1 run in 5 innings in 4K, and Han Hyun-hee showed impressive pitching in 4K with 5 scoreless innings. He had a fierce confrontation with Hanwha’s Birch Smith and Moon Dong-ju. The score was 1-1 in both games until the 5th inning. 바카라
It was ‘6 times’ that the match was split. Hanwha split the game by winning 5 points on the 25th and 3 points on the 26th in the 6th inning.
Lotte’s losing pitchers were Choi Jun-yong and Lee Min-seok, who pitched in the 6th inning. These are the young gun bullpens that Lotte trusts the most.
During ⅓ innings, Choi Jun-yong gave up 4 runs by tying up 3 hits and 1 walk, including a home run by Ogredi and Noh Si-hwan. The fastball restraint came up to 152 km, but it collapsed after giving a walk at the end of a full count in the first batter Noh Soo-gwang.
Choi Lee-jun, who took the mound afterwards, also allowed a double to Park Sang-eon, following a walk and wild throw, and gave up 1 run. A ‘5’ was engraved on the scoreboard in an instant, and has not changed since.
