He regained his monster instinct. Eui-ri Lee, left-hander of the KIA Tigers, gave the team three consecutive victories with the best pitching this season.
On the 19th, he started in the game against the Kiwoom Heroes held at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field and led to a 10-1 victory by pitching well with 2 hits, 3 walks and 1 run with 9 strikeouts until the 7th inning.
In the first episode, he faced a crisis with a chronic lack of control. The first batter, Lee Jung-hoo, was sent out on a walk, and the next batter, Lee Hyung-jong, also hit the body, causing a crisis with 1st and 2nd base safely. After one death, he gave up a heavy hit to Russell and gave up his first run.
Center fielder Kim Ho-ryeong sprinted and attempted a diving catch, but got into the glove and got out. But he didn’t break down. Lee Won-seok caught the shortstop’s floating ball and Kim Tae-jin struck out.
In the bottom of the first inning, the batting line made super innings with 9 hits and 8 runs against natural enemy pitcher Eric Yokishi. Lee Eui-ri, who gained strength, blocked Kiwoom hitters with an overwhelming pitch.
With 6 strikeouts from the 2nd to the 5th inning, all of them were treated as triplets. He also allowed only two walks in the fifth inning. The 6th inning was also blocked by a tripartite offense, and after 2 outs in the 7th inning, the shortstop gave up an error and a double, but Kim Dong-heon was caught with a floating ball in right field and the game was over.
103 pitches. He used a fastball (68 pitches) of up to 149 km, sliders (14) and curves (13), and changeups (8) with a sense of stability. Against genius hitter Lee Jung-hoo, who survived, he gave up one walk and blocked two at-bats with a hit.
For the first time in the season, he played 6 or more innings and made his first quality start. Previously, 5⅔ innings (April 19, against Lotte) was the most. He kept the mound until the 7th inning and fulfilled his role as a starting pitcher. 메이저사이트
This year, his pitching was faltering and he was too busy to digest 5 innings. He had allowed 29 walks in 31⅓ innings through the previous day. Every time he started, he was a starting pitcher who gave him longings and worries. However, on this day, he caught his first pitch and delivered an overwhelming pitch. It was a freaking scary day.
Manager Kim Jong-guk praised him, saying, “Should I say that he threw lightly without losing his strength from the beginning of the second inning? He had good control and perfectly blocked long innings. It was a pitch that gave the bullpen some leeway.”
Eui-ri Lee said, “Today was the best game. I faced a crisis in the first inning, but it was great to block the follow-up batters well. I felt comfortable as I quickly caught the count. I gave a lot of points in the other line, the tempo went fast, and I pitched aggressively, so it was a good result. came out. Now I have taken the first step. I will go slowly one by one without being greedy.”
