Nothing has changed. Rather, the problem was even more serious.
KIA Tigers Eui-ri Lee took the mound as a starting pitcher in the home game against Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju on the 8th.
His start was neat. In the first inning메이저놀이터, Eui-Ri Lee struck out Yu-Chan Lee on a swing, Heo Gyeong-Min on a fly ball in center field, and Seung-Ho Kang on a swing on a swing, ending the fight in three ways.
In the second inning, Kim Jae-hwan struck out with a knockout, and Yang Eui-ji was caught with a straight hit by shortstop, then Yang Seok-hwan hit a left-handed double. However, Eui-ri Lee turned Song Seung-hwan into a looking strikeout and finished the inning.
Eui-ri Lee faced a crisis as his pitches shook sharply from the third inning. After tying lead hitter Jang Seung-hyeon with a shortstop ground ball, he gave walks to Su-bin Jeong, Yu-chan Lee, and Kyung-min Heo in succession. Lee Eui-ri closed off Kang Seung-ho with a grounder from third baseman and Kim Jae-hwan with a looking strikeout in the first run with bases loaded, finishing without a run.
However, in the 4th inning, Jegu also had trouble. Lee Ui-ri allowed Yang Eui-ji and Yang Seok-hwan to walk continuously, and then dedicated a right-handed hit to Song Seung-hwan. Here, KIA took Lee Eui-ri off the mound. Lim Ki-young, who inherited the baton from Musa 1st and 2nd base, got a heavy hit from Jang Seung-hyun, and Lee Eui-ri’s runs increased.
On this day, Eui-ri Lee recorded 2 hits, 5 walks, 5 strikeouts and 2 runs in 3 innings (77 pitches). He had only two hits, but left five walks. The strike and ball ratio was terrible. It was virtually 1-1 with 39 strikes and 38 balls. The team won 7-6, but Lee Eui-ri couldn’t help but smile.
Lee Eui-ri has already left homework by walking a lot in the first appearance of the season. He struggled through the game, giving up six walks in five innings. Even though he allowed only 3 points and became the winning pitcher, Lee Eui-ri blamed himself in an interview after the game, saying, “It was the worst if I looked at the contents and said it calmly.”
At the same time, he said, “This year’s goal is not to walk as much as possible. This game is not good, so he will prepare well for the next game.” However, Lee Eui-ri’s wish did not come true and remained a wish.
