KIA Tigers Eui-ri Lee (21) at the beginning of the 2023 season. It was a series of bad luck.
3 appearances in the regular season after overcoming the aftermath of participating in the 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic). Eui-ri Lee, who became the winning pitcher with 3 runs in 5 innings (1 earned run) against SSG Landers in Incheon on the 2nd, the opening series, pitched only 3 innings against the Doosan Bears in Gwangju on the 8th, but only allowed 2 runs. It was also 5 innings and 1 run against Hanwha Eagles in Gwangju on the 13th, which was his first loss. However, after the opening series, the KIA lineup fell into a severe slump, and Lee Eui-ri’s good pitch faded.먹튀검증
The match against the Busan Lotte Giants on the 19th with the team’s scoring position batting average of 204. The day before, Sean Anderson was replaced early in the 5th inning, and the bullpen had a chance to win, but it was a day when Lee Eui-ri’s stable pitch was desperately needed for KIA, who lost.
Jegu Nanjo seemed to be holding back his ankle again. Lee Eui-ri, who overcame the crisis with 2 outs 1st and 2nd base at the end of the 2nd inning with the help of defense, gave a left-handed hit to Kim Min-seok at the end of the 3rd inning, followed by Ahn Kwon-soo’s exquisite push bunt leading to an infield hit. In the ensuing at-bat, Ko Seung-min took a bunt stance, but Lee Eui-ri brought the bases full safely with a straight walk.
At the moment of greatest crisis, concentration shone. Eui-ri Lee, who struck out Jack Rex with 3 pitches, induced a strikeout with a missed swing by throwing a 151km fastball from 1B2S in the ensuing match against Jun-woo Jeon. Even in the match against An Chi-hong, he chose a fastball from 1B2S, pulled out the bat, and erased the crisis with KKK. After the inning, Eui-ri Lee headed to the bench amid shouts of joy and regret.
In the beginning of the 4th inning, against Lotte Han Hyun-hee, the KIA lineup made the first point with Hwang Dae-in’s heavy hit and Choi Hyung-woo and Kim Sun-bin’s continuous walk with a base full without a loss, with Ko Jong-wook’s missed hit. Ryu Ji-hyeok’s infield hit added one more run in the ensuing two-out run, and Lee Chang-jin’s hit to the left center became a sweeping triple that fell behind the left fielder’s glove, scoring five runs at once. The fruits of erasing the self-inflicted crisis were sweet.
Eui-Ri Lee passed the mound to Gi-Young Lim at the bottom of the 6th inning, with the team leading 5-0, with 2nd out and 1st base. As Lim Ki-young filled the last out count with Han Dong-hee, Lee Eui-ri finished the game without conceding a goal. 5 ⅔ innings, 3 hits, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts, no runs, the fruit of erasing the crisis on its own was sweet.
