About 19,000 Lotte fans gathered at Sajik Stadium in Busan on Friday (19th) to drive away the passing spring with shouts that were hotter than summer. Fierce war between 1st and 2nd place. The Lotte Giants laughed first. Lotte won 7-5 in the home game against SSG Landers, who had been in first place until the previous day.
It was a day full of things. Lotte beat SSG and rose to first place again. Starter Park Se-woong won his first win in seven games this season. He recorded his first quality start of the season (6 or more innings of starts, no more than 3 earned runs) with 6 hits, 6 strikeouts and 1 run while throwing 107 pitches in 6 innings. With this, Lotte starting pitchers are achieving a quality start one after another from the previous five starting pitchers. In addition to the surviving foreign pitchers Strayley and Barnes, Lotte’s new ace, Na Gyun-an, Han Hyun-hee, who recorded 6 scoreless innings in 2 consecutive games, and Park Se-woong, the last runner.
As for the starting rotation, it was Park Se-woong’s turn against Hanwha the day before (18th). However, the Lotte coaching staff already adjusted the starting rotation earlier this month and decided to put Park Se-woong in the SSG match instead of the Hanwha match. Instead, they exchanged the two by putting Han Hyun-hee on the 18th against Hanwha. In the end, it was a win-win.
On this day, Park Se-woong mixed a curveball, slider, and forkball with a fastball with a maximum speed of 150 km/h. He allowed on base quite a bit, but didn’t falter in critical situations.
The Lotte batting line was not explosive, but it was not silent in scoring chances. The required score was drawn.
At the end of the first inning, Lotte scored the first point with An Chi-hong’s ground ball from 1 company, 2nd and 3rd base. 1-0.
SSG balanced in the top of the 4th inning. In the 1st 2nd base, 5th Hanyu Island hit 1 RBI hit in the middle right. tied 1-1.
From the 4th to the 6th, Lotte scored 3 consecutive innings. At the end of the 4th inning, Jeon Jun-woo’s ground ball RBI at 2nd and 3rd base shook the game 2-1. At the end of the 5th inning, when Min-seok Kim double-played at Lotte Musa 1st and 3rd base, the runner on 3rd base stepped on the groove and the score was 3-1. In the bottom of the 6th inning, third base runner Ahn Chi-hong from 1 out 1 and 3 base made it 4-1 with a double steal that dug into the home the moment the first base runner stole second base. In the beginning of the 8th inning, SSG pinch-hit Choo Shin-soo with 2 outs on 1st and 3rd base and hit 1 RBI and right-handed hit to chase it 4-2.카지노사이트
Lotte’s momentum was scary. At the end of the 8th inning, Lotte’s ‘solver’ Noh Jin-hyeok came back to bat with 1 company, 1st and 2nd base. A two-run double hit the center fence against SSG bullpen pitcher Roun Lee. The score quickly became 6-2. It wasn’t over. Park Seung-wook’s 1 RBI double in the 8th was made again in the second out and second base that followed. 7-2. It was an RBI that put a wedge in the victory. In the top of the 9th inning, against the changed pitcher Shin Jeong-rak, SSG called Lotte closer Kim Won-joong to the mound as Choi Jeong-yi hit a three-run home run to the left and caught up 7-5.
For SSG, starting pitcher Park Jong-hoon went down the hill early with 3 runs in 4 innings, and Lim Joon-seop, Choi Min-joon, Baek Seung-gun, and Lee Row-un threw in succession, but it was not enough to block the burning Lotte batting line.
Before the game, SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said, “Lotte has a different momentum this year. In fact, they play well-structured baseball to stay at the top. I think it’s a team that needs to do its best to win.” Lotte coach Sutton also ordered the team to fight, saying, “Don’t worry, let’s enjoy it. I told you to put all your concentration into today’s game” while meeting SSG, which was running in first place until the previous day.
