“Three wins are absolutely no coincidence”… Pitcher Conversion 3rd Year Lotte ‘Bokdeongi’ Praise of FA Catcher
Three consecutive victories are absolutely no coincidence토토사이트.”
The Lotte Giants won 9-5 in a confrontation with the Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 15th.
Lotte starter Na Kyun-an recorded 3 runs (3 earned), 6 hits, 4 walks and 4 strikeouts in 5 innings. He, who is in his third year as a pitcher, recorded an average ERA of 1.45 with 3 wins, 18⅔ innings, 3 runs (3 ERA), 7 strikeouts, and 16 strikeouts in 3 games this season. He is the sole leader in the most wins category.
Na Kyun-an allowed a hit to Jose Pirella after two outs in the first inning. Pirella advanced to second base when left fielder Ahn Kwon-su made a catch error. Kang Min-ho’s batted ball then flew high in the infield. However, third baseman Han Dong-hee made a catch mistake. It was a situation that could lead to a run, but first baseman Ko Seung-min, who confirmed that Pirella was running home, quickly threw it home and did not concede.
Na Kyun-an, who stopped the second episode by committing a three-way crime, faced a big crisis in the third episode. He was hit by Ja-wook Koo after handling Kim Ji-chan and Lee Seong-gyu with infield grounders. Then Lee Jae-hyun and Pirella gave consecutive walks and became the bases loaded. However, he overcame the crisis by handling Kang Min-ho with a ground ball to the third baseman.
Na Kyun-ahn conceded a run for the first time this season in the 4th inning. Oh Jae-il and Kim Dong-yeop’s consecutive hits came out. In the situation of 1 company, 1st and 3rd base, Kim Ji-chan’s 1 RBI hit at the right time. Kim Ji-chan, who tried to steal the base in the crisis of 1st and 3rd base, was caught on the rundown. While the Lotte defense focused on Kim Ji-chan, Kim Dong-yeop dug into the home and scored.
Na Kyun-an, who gave up two runs in the 4th inning, was in the final crisis in the 5th inning. With a Pirella hit, Kang Min-ho’s four balls, and Oh Jae-il’s walk, he became one out with full bases. Then, Kim Dong-yeop’s batted ball went to the shortstop. First base runner Jaeil Oh was out, but it was not linked to a double hit. Meanwhile, Pirella scored. Na Kyun-an then came down from the mound after blocking Lee Won-seok with a floating ball in center field in a crisis with 2nd, 1st and 3rd base.
After the game, Na Gyun-an said, “In a difficult situation that could lead to a large number of runs, the defenses helped me well, so I was able to stop it with minimal runs.” I want to say that,” he said.
Yoo Kang-nam said, “(Na Gyun-an’s) pitch was not a problem at all. But I tried to throw it more accurately because I was trying to hit it too hard. The ball turned into a ball and the score came out.” “I don’t think it’s a problem. If you’re a starting pitcher, it’s natural for you to give up runs. I think it was okay to give up runs.”
Na Kyun-an was responsible for 3 of Lotte’s 5 wins this season alone. He has become a blessing that cannot be avoided without him in Lotte. Yoo Kang-nam said, “(Three wins) is absolutely not a coincidence. He pitched 18⅔ innings and won three consecutive wins. It’s not a coincidence.” I think it’s good to have three pitches with high perfection.”
