Yoo Gang-nam, the homemaker of the professional baseball Lotte Giants, wore a catcher mask for the first time against his former team, LG, but battery communication with Han Hyun-hee, who started as a starting pitcher, was not good.
Lotte lost 2-5 in the second leg of the demonstration game against LG in the 2023 season held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 19th. Lotte suffered 2 losses in a row in the demonstration game and recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 4 losses 메이저사이트.
On this day, Lotte’s starting pitcher Han Hyun-hee, a free agent, allowed a turnaround due to ‘mental collapse’. Han Hyun-hee threw 71 pitches in 3 ⅔ innings, giving up only 3 hits, but allowed 4 walks and allowed 3 runs.
Han Hyun-hee showed off a good start by neatly handling the first episode with a tripartite crime. In the second inning, he continued his good pitching by turning Oh Jin-hwan and Moon Bo-gyeong back to Beomta. However, after giving away the first hit to Park Dong-won in the next at-bat, his pitching was drastically shaken. Hong Chang-ki and Kim Min-seong were given balls that fit their bodies in succession, and Song Chan-eui allowed a walk to push them, conceding the first run. Afterwards, he was hit by Park Hae-min at the right time, and 2 more points were taken away in an instant. He gave up a walk in the third inning, but he struck out Austin and Oh Ji-hwan and struck out Park Dong-won to finish the inning.
Rookie left-hander Lee Tae-yeon and starting candidate Lee Min-seok, who came to the mound following Han Hyun-hee, blocked 1 inning, 1 and ⅓ innings respectively with no runs.
Among the hitters, Hwang Seong-bin stood out. Following the last match against SSG, Hwang Seong-bin, who served as the top hitter on this day, was the only Lotte hitter to hit two hits. In particular, Hwang Seong-bin performed a perfect role as a lead-off and on-base with quick feet after a surprise bunt in his first at-bat. Hwang Seong-bin is expected to compete for the top hitter with Ahn Kwon-soo and Kim Min-seok this season.
Lotte raised the first point from the first inning on this day. After Hwang Seong-bin went on base, Ahn Kwon-soo doubled and Ko Seung-min walked to get a chance to safely load the bases. Then, Jack Rex’s push-off walk scored one point. An Chi-Hong’s sacrifice fly scored one more point, but Ko Seung-Min’s failed steal and Jung-Hoon’s strikeout prevented it from scoring another point.
Meanwhile, Lotte is carrying out various activities in hopes of attracting the 2030 Busan World Expo. A patch wishing for the Expo was attached to the right sleeve of the new uniform this season, and the landscape lighting of the Sajik Baseball Stadium is turned on in the blue color symbolizing the Busan Expo every day at 6:00 pm until the Expo venue is decided.
